What Was An Emergency Will Now Be The Status Quo

Justin Trudeau used his illegal invocation of the Enabling Emergencies Act to assume sweeping new powers, including the power to seize bank accounts without due process of law. Now his regime intends to keep that power permanently.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that many of the measures imposed ‘temporarily’ to deal with the protesters (after they had been suitably demonized as violent extremists) will now become permanent.

“We used all the tools that we had prior to the invocation of the Emergencies Act and we determined we needed some additional tools,” Freeland announced

“Some of those tools we will be putting forward measures to put those tools permanently in place. The authorities of FINTRAC, I believe, do need to be expanded to cover crowdsourcing platforms and payment platforms,” she added.

The “emergency” was never more than a power grab by the Prime-Minister-in-hiding.
