Trudeau wins House vote on Emergencies Act


NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has said the threat posed by the so-called Freedom Convoy justified use of the act. “They came here to overthrow a democratically elected government,” he said last week. “It is a movement funded by foreign influence, and it is fed on disinformation. Its goal is to disrupt our democracy.”

“Hurtful and racist symbols were everywhere … the incessant honking was unbearable,” Ottawa Centre MP Yasir Naqvi told POLITICO over the weekend. “Nearby parking lots were used as urinals, our skies were filled with firecrackers as they were hurled down streets every night, and the air was thick with diesel fuel.”

Protesters also shut down key trade corridors for a time along the U.S.-Canada border, including at the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor, Ont.

Once the Emergencies Act was invoked, police created a perimeter around key blocks in downtown Ottawa and established checkpoints to control entry into the area.

  1. Jagmeet Singh is a loser and an idiot. Here's a guy with the balance of power in a minority government. If he sided with the Conservatives, the Emergency Act would be repealed. He could've walked up to the idiot PM and said "Sure, I'll support you. I want to be minister of finance and I also want a couple other portfolios and then you'll have my vote". Instead he muttered about how he was so reluctant, supported the Liberals and got nothing. He's a socialist who wears $10 000 watches. That should tell you something.
    But again, there was no danger to the government at any point. A few blocks of Ottawa were occupied by a bunch of people who mostly just partied. There was no attempt to storm Parliament, take hostages or do anything violence. And the guy carrying the Nazi flag was kicked out the day he unfurled it. But the propaganda continued because if you're going to suspend civil law and create a soft dictatorship you need an impressive enemy, one that will never go away which means continuing the state of emergency forever.
