Prime Minister Trudeau invokes Emergencies Act


The federal government has declared a public order emergency that will give police and financial institutions special powers to crack down on the “Freedom Convoy” protests.

Speaking outside the House of Commons on Monday, Trudeau said the declaration would be time-limited and geographically-specific, and that the extraordinary measures are necessary because local police dealing with demonstrators calling for the end of all COVID-19 health measures have faced “serious challenges” to “effectively enforce the law.”

“These illegal blockades are hurting Canadians, and they need to stop,” Trudeau said, as reported by The Toronto Star.
