Fallout from Trudeau’s Declaration of Martial Law Begins: Sheriff begins to resign in protest

Justin Trudeau on Monday invoked the Emergencies Act to suspend civil rights and impose martial law as a result of the Freedom Convoy protests. The Prime Minister of Canada made the announcement on Monday.

“We cannot and will not allow illegal and dangerous activities to continue,” Trudeau said in his speech, adding that “serious challenges to law enforcement’s ability to effective way of law enforcement”.

However, some prime ministers have opposed Trudeau for invoking the Emergencies Act, saying law enforcement has the tools to handle peaceful protests.

“The illegal blockades must end, but the police have the tools to enforce the law and clear the blockades, as they did over the weekend in Windsor.” tweeted Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe.

“As a result, Saskatchewan does not support the Trudeau government invoking the Emergencies Act. If the federal government does take this measure, I expect it will only be invoked in the provinces that require it, as the law allows,” he added.

“I am proud of Manitoba’s law enforcement officials and have full confidence in them to protect our community. The proposal from the federal government to use the Emergencies Act is not helpful to the situation at the Emerson Border,” wrote Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson.

“Alberta Premier Jason Kenney told reporters that he told Trudeau earlier on Monday that he would if the Emergencies Act did not apply to Alberta, and that such a move was unnecessary in the province,” said Fox News. report.

“Quebec Premier Francois Legault also alert that he does not want to apply the Emergencies Act to his province, while warning that he thinks such a measure would be divisive,” the report added.

“It is not time to add fuel to the fire,” he said.

Now, Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly has resigned as Prime Minister Trudeau takes control of the police force.

“The Ottawa police chief resigned after Trudeau took control of the police force last night,” said journalist Keean Bexte report on Tuesday.

The AP tried to attribute the police chief’s resignation to ‘criticism’. However, it was due to the chief’s disagreement with Trudeau’s mishandling of the Liberal Delegation’s protest.

According to Global News, “Sloly joined the force in October 2019 after a stint with the Toronto Police Department, where he served as deputy sheriff for seven years. He has served with the Toronto Police Department for a total of 27 years. ”

“In response to calls to shift city funding from police to social services, Sloly has previously acknowledged the need for ‘systemic change’ in policing,” report more.

Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said it was time for police to start using their broad powers vested in Canada’s Emergencies Act, which allows the government to ban lockdowns. and started towing the truck,” AP report.

“We need law enforcement to step in, use the Emergencies Act and enforce it,” Mendecino said. “We’ve given new powers to the police and we need them to do the job now.”

The Canadian Civil Liberties Union has condemned the dictatorial crackdown on protesters.

“The federal government has failed to meet the threshold required to invoke the Emergencies Act,” CCLA said on Twitter. “This legislation sets a high and clear standard for good reason: The Act allows the government to bypass normal democratic processes. This standard has not been met”.

“The Emergencies Act can only be invoked when a situation ‘seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve Canada’s sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity’ and when the situation ‘cannot be effectively handled under any other Canadian law,'” the CCLA continued.

“Governments routinely deal with difficult situations and do so by using the powers vested in them by democratically elected representatives,” the CCLA added. “Emergency legislation should not be normalized. It threatens our democracy and civil liberties.”

On Sunday, Canadian police began mass arrests of Freedom Convoy protesters who had successfully blocked off the vital Ambassador Bridge for nearly a week. But now the Canadian government has an entirely new problem.

Windsor Police announced an operation to arrest the Freedom Convoy protesters on Sunday morning.

Police also announced that vehicles were being towed and that Canadians should avoid the area.

According to the Canadian press, the military is ready to intervene against the truckers. Trudeau’s arbitrary invocation of the Emergencies Act, instead of recognizing the basic human rights of Canadian citizens, effectively suspended the Constitution, the Charter, and even the Convention. international civil rights.

Furthermore, Canada will expand its anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules to cover Freedom Cover protests.

On Monday, Ontario announced that it will end vaccine passports on March 1, along with four other provinces that have agreed to lift Covid measures as a result of the Freedom Convoy protests: Saskatchewan , Alberta, Quebec and Prince Edward Island. As a result, Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act to be not only arbitrary but completely unnecessary.

Western democracies around the world have begun to recognize scientific fact and are pulling back from medically irrelevant and socially divisive vaccine mandates. Now is the time for Canada to stop dividing itself and do the same.
