Justin Trudeau on Monday invoked the Emergencies Act to suspend civil rights and impose a state of martial law due to the Freedom Convoy protests. The Canadian Prime Minister made the announcement on Monday.
….the Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly has resigned over Prime Minister Trudeau taking control of the police force.
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association condemned the authoritarian crackdown against the protesters.
“The federal government has not met the threshold necessary to invoke the Emergencies Act,” the CCLA said on Twitter. “This law creates a high and clear standard for good reason: the Act allows government to bypass ordinary democratic processes. This standard has not been met.”The Fallout from Trudeau’s Declaration of Martial Law Begins: Police Chiefs Begin to Resign in Protest – Rights and Freedoms
