…& that even live went over like a lead balloon…globally.
…about 40 seconds in, moistly (something is moist anyway), Freeland states, “My colleagues, and I are meeting regularly…VERY regularly…” and can Not keep the smirk off her face…

The Emergencies Act, which replaced the War Measures Act in the 1980s, defines a national emergency as a temporary "urgent and critical situation" that "seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it."

The act gives special powers to respond to emergency scenarios affecting public welfare (natural disasters, disease outbreaks), public order (civil unrest), international emergencies or war emergencies.

It grants cabinet the ability to "take special temporary measures that may not be appropriate in normal times" to cope with an "urgent and critical situation" and the resulting fallout. It is still subject to the protections of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Once cabinet declares an emergency, it takes effect right away — but the government still needs to go to Parliament within seven days to get approval. If either the Commons or the Senate votes against the motion, the emergency declaration is revoked…which never happened because Trudeau/Singh revoked the act just hours before the Senate could vote on it because….(?)

….hours before being put to vote in the Senate, emergency measures invoked by the Trudeau Liberals last week have been revoked.
The Conservatives and Bloc Québécois voted against the use of the act in the House of Commons, arguing that it constituted government overreach. Other critics, including the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA), have said the use of the act was unnecessary because the protests were not a legitimate national emergency.
The motion to confirm the declaration of emergency passed 185-151, with the New Democrats voting in favour alongside the minority Liberal government. The Conservatives and the Bloc Québécois opposed it…so Thanks there Jagmeet!!

Just before the vote, Conservative House leader John Brassard asked if it was a confidence vote. Government House leader Mark Holland shrugged off the question and said “it’s time to vote.”

Singh said it was also his interpretation that the vote would be deemed a confidence vote.

“We understood absolutely that we do not want to trigger an election. That would be the worst thing to do in this crisis,” said Singh in a press conference.

“We would never allow that to happen,” he added.
…& out’a the the closet they came, until Fall of 2025…no matter what!!

Conservatives and the Bloc Quebecois argued the Emergencies Act was not necessary in the first place. They accused the government of a power grab to force a majority vote on extending the measures.

The act allowed authorities to declare certain areas as no-go zones. It also allowed police to freeze truckers’ personal and corporate bank accounts and compel tow truck companies to haul away vehicles.

So…has anybody else noticed that with this court decision announced today, there’s one specific person whose conspicuously absent…who normally just loves to be in front of the camera, pretty much any camera, at any time…?? Pretty sure he’s not in Jamaica, or Tofino, so???
Jagmeet says “This was all caused by a lack of leadership, and that they will support the liberals until the fall of 2025, regardless…damn the torpedo’s!!”

It was the biggest knockout Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government has endured since coming into power in 2015.

It was also a massive vindication of the trucker’s Freedom Convoy and a historic win against government overreach.

A federal court judge ruled the Trudeau government’s 2022 Emergencies Act declaration of what amounted to martial law to remove a few hundred truckers, their rigs and some bouncy castles and hot tubs, was not appropriate.

This is the kind of outcome we get when the person making the decision is not someone you share a ski chalet with. Or, at least, a Liberal-friendly judge. This judge, who found the use of the Act unreasonable and unjustified, does not fall under either category. Whoopsies…

Looking back at this goat rodeo in hindsight, it’s hard to believe that it was only a few years ago, & not a historical embarrassment that we have put in the rear view mirror, but that we’re still dealing with the same players in government today:
This above coming from the same guy being referred to below, & they even cut her mic on her initial response ‘cuz 2015-ish?
What can we say beyond, “Thank you Jagmeet! Hope you enjoy that pension.”

I have every confidence he knows what he's doing.

And equal confidence what he's doing is not what he claims to be doing.
Yes, the Dems have taken a page out of their book & given it to him. He does exactly what they do - accuse others of what it is that they're doing. And, they're getting away with it. It's amazing!

When the Nationwide Protest Against the Carbon Tax kicked off on April 1, the basic plan was to mount a less confrontational version of the Freedom Convoy.

Large gatherings of vehicles would be stationed at “provincial borders and other key locations,” with the vow to stay there until they’d obtained the “total abolition of the carbon tax.”

Nearly two weeks in, an overwhelming police response has headed off virtually all of the group’s attempts to block roadways or marshal protest convoys. While the movement never had quite the same momentum as the Freedom Convoy, the standoff seems to illustrate that Canada does indeed retain the ability to disband an organized protest blockade if it feels like it.
The treatment of the Nationwide Protest Against the Carbon Tax has differed sharply from law-enforcement responses to other protest blockades.

It was only four years ago that small groups of anti-pipeline protesters with roughly the same level of organization were able to able to stage days-long blockades of Canadian rail infrastructure, including a near-complete shutdown on Feb. 13, 2020 of eastern portions of the Canadian National Railway.

More recently, anti-Israel protesters in Toronto were able to maintain a two-week blockade of a highway overpass servicing a predominantly Jewish neighbourhood. Only after intense political pressure did Toronto police announce that blockaders would be arrested.

The Nationwide Protest Against the Carbon Tax began on April Fools Day in order to sync up with that day’s automatic hike to the tax, bringing it to $80 per tonne of carbon & in solidarity with politicians annual automatic pay raises.

I would have gone with the Convoy folks if it was about the carbon tax. Having been in the industry for over 25 years, I was blown away by the momentum and size they achieved. I think the Trudeau government showed us just how far they were willing to go; the CBC even said, "Is this Justin's? 'Just watch me moment.'" While they masturbated in secret.

The fact is, Trudeau and his merry cult were (are) intoxicated with power. How dare all these truckers with their Fuck Trudeau flags show up on our doorstep. They didn't listen to the cops. They wouldn't go out to meet them. They just hunkered down and pulled conspiracies out of their asses. Most people were indifferent because they were suffering a form of Stockholm syndrome under this fucking doomsday cult. Now they're waking up because the spending party is over, and the fucking country is in ruins, from homelessness to rising crime to people dying from drugs.
