Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau crossed a major line in his quest to crush the Freedom Convoy protests.
No one has ever seen anything like this before.
And the Freedom Convoy just learned some devastating news that will leave you speechless.
Justin Trudeau is invoking the 1988 Emergencies Act to impose martial law on Canada to end the Freedom Convoy protests outside the parliament in Ottawa.
Under the martial law Prime Minister Trudeau imposed, the government can now designate Freedom Convoy truckers and their supporters as domestic terrorists.
The Trudeau government can now regulate cryptocurrencies and seize the truckers’ bank accounts.
The BBC reported:
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said banks will be able freeze personal accounts of anyone linked with the protests without any need for a court order.
Vehicle insurance of anyone involved with the demonstrations can also be suspended, she added.
She said they were broadening Canada’s “Terrorist Financing” rules to cover cryptocurrencies and crowdfunding platforms, as part of the effort to clamp down on the protests.
“It’s all about following the money,” she said.
But Trudeau overstepped.
The premiers of multiple Canadian provinces expressed their opposition to Trudeau declaring martial law.
“Saskatchewan does not support the Trudeau government invoking the Emergencies Act. If the federal government does proceed with this measure, I would hope it would only be invoked in provinces that request it, as the legislation allows,” Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe explained.
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney expressed his opposition to martial law stating, “We have the legal powers that we need. We have the operational resources that we need to enforce, and I think at this point for the federal government to reach in over top of us without offering anything in particular would frankly be unhelpful.”
“In my view, the sweeping effects and signals associated with the never-before-used Emergencies Act are not constructive here in Manitoba, where caution must be taken against overreach and unintended negative consequences,” Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson stated.
Trudeau invoking the Emergencies Act isn’t even legal.
The government must establish that there is an “urgent and critical situation” that “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians.”
A prime minister cannot invoke the act in the face of a lawful protest, which the Freedom Convoy clearly is.
Justin Trudeau’s power grab is unprecedented.
Trudeau declaring martial law shows just how much politicians fear the sentiment behind the Freedom Convoy.
The regime’s allies in the corporate media quickly fell into line.
CNN and other outlets now describe the convoy’s support for freedom as something dark and sinister.
But everyone knows Trudeau essentially declaring Canada a dictatorship is going too far.
