Trudeau moves to make emergency powers permanent

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is moving to making the excessive powers granted him by the Emergencies Act permanent. 

Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canadian history a week ago. The Act awarded him powers not normally used in a democracy in order to stamp out the protests against his COVID-19 mandates. 

Those powers effectively allow the prime minister to ban gatherings and protests, to wield law enforcement at will, to prohibit or regulate travel and to requisition personal property, including the seizure of private and corporate funds and bank accounts. The Trudeau government did indeed seize the bank accounts of political dissidents, including cryptocurrencies. 

Justice Minister David Lametti warned the public against having the wrong political views. 

“If you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars, and millions of dollars to this kind of thing, then you ought to be worried,” said Lametti.   

According to Canadian law, the Emergencies Act is only valid for 30 days and the protesters are already evacuating Ottawa. But Trudeau is nevertheless seeking to give himself these powers permanently, in case the protests “come back”. 

"The truckers could come back in two months, three months, so does that mean we would have to keep [the Emergencies Act] for another two, three months?” asked a reporter from the state-funded CBC. 

"Indeed," Trudeau responded. "This is something we are thinking about, of course." 

Parliament will hold a vote tonight on making the Emergencies Act permanent. Trudeau has already begun to intimidate anyone who might oppose him. 

“...they don’t trust the government to make incredibly momentous and important decisions,” Trudeau said of his opponents. 

“I am confident this bill is going to pass,” he added. 

As reported by AFLDS Frontline News, Trudeau had already been laying the groundwork for the Emergencies Act in 2020, nearly two years before protests. 

Many fear that the country once loved and teased for its “niceness” has descended into a dark period. 

Since Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act, law enforcement has been brutally assaulting Canadian citizens, trampling some on horseback and cheering. Other evidence shows members of the Royal Canadian Mounties Police (RCMP) assaulting a woman without cause and intimidating a café owner who served truckers, in addition to other incidents.
