EDITOR’S NOTE: The question isn’t what the parasite ruling class who thinks they are the masters and we slaves have the only option of compliance, can do or will do. This will come down to what the military and law enforcement, who keep these masters in positions of power over others, will do. Will they obey and follow orders? Or will they side with freedom?
David Icke To LEOs & Military: “Look Your Children In The Eye” & Tell Them YOU Enforced Tyranny
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has learned that Prime Minister Trudeau “will inform the provinces he will invoke the Emergencies Act to give the government extra powers to deal with the protests across the country. But in a meeting with the Liberal caucus, the PM said there were no plans to deploy the military.”
The move follows a meeting Sunday of the federal cabinet and its Incident Response Group (IRG).
Trudeau tweeted late Sunday that the IRG discussed “further actions the government can take to help end the blockades and occupations.”
Earlier that day, Emergency Preparedness Minister Bill Blair told CBC’s Rosemary Barton Live that the federal government has discussed invoking special emergency powers to deal with ongoing protests in Ottawa.
Blair described the attitude around invoking the Emergencies Act as “appropriate caution” rather than “reticence.”
As CBC concludes, the law gives the federal government carte blanche to cope with a crisis, including the ability to enact emergency powers that allow it to prohibit travel within a specified area or remove personal property, while imposing fines or jail time on people contravening new orders.
This comes after reports on Sunday, Canadian officials cleared the roadway and arrested “Freedom Convoy” demonstrators who held the line and blocked the busiest U.S.-Canada border crossing for nearly a week. Canadian officials confirmed the bridge reopened earlier Monday morning as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to invoke emergency powers to squash protesters around the country.
Traffic cameras on Ambassador Bridge, which connects Windsor and Canadian automotive plants with Detroit, show increased traffic flows around 0930 ET in both directions, into the US, and into Canada.
“Today, our national economic crisis at the Ambassador Bridge came to an end,” declared the mayor of Windsor, Drew Dilkens.

While the bridge’s reopening has been called a success by the government, demonstrators against medical tyranny disrupted hundreds of millions of trade between both countries. Bloomberg reports the price of the six-day shutdown cost a whopping $13.5 million an hour in traded goods and forced carmakers to shutter or limit production at plants in Ontario and Detroit.
About 500 miles northeast of Windsor, CBS News reports protesters in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, continue to “paralyze downtown.” The occupation of Ottawa has incited a movement across the country of freedom-loving people creating congestion across highways, metro areas, and border crossings — all because they’re fed up with Trudeau’s vaccine mandates and restrictions.
The government is struggling to quell the assembly of freedom-loving people from across the country as Trudeau’s government plays Whac-A-Mole” to squash protesters where every they show up.
The latest is in Surrey, British Columbia, where protesters have shuttered a border crossing. Freedom never sleeps as a stretch of Highway 15 remains shut down, preventing traffic from entering the US. Data from geolocation technology company TomTom shows part of the highway is closed.
Various highway traffic cameras (data sourced from the British Columbia government) confirm the closure.

Twitter is full of pictures and videos from over the weekend of people gathering on and around the highway to voice their opinion against the government’s dystopic vaccine mandates and restrictions.
Even as Ambassador Bridge reopens, protesters continue blockade movements across the country at critical chokepoints that could unleash economic pain for the Canadian economy, something the Bank of Canada has called “very distressing.”
The revolts have yet to be squashed as it appears Trudeau won’t submit to protester demands.
Allow Hollywood to all move there forever.
Trudy and Brandon must go bowling together!
Both snot nosed dictators! We the people give consent to be governed and not the government!
The Emergency Powers Act, essentially gives the Federal government Provincial government powers.
However, since the Federal government isn’t a province, they don’t have the same institutional or personnel resources to do very much and would rely on the cooperation of the Provincial governments.
Even the provincial police forces remain under their usual civilian authorities.
Basically, if there’s no reason to send in the troops or conscript labour, its a melodramatic power-grabbing waste of time.
This will assure Trudeau remains in power as his popularity among the Canadian people will increase as a result.
I agree: most Americans do not know much about Canada, let alone the mindset. Most Canadians admire above all else security. That’s why most of them migrated there in the first place: to get away from the crazy, violent world OUT THERE. They don’t want their country to turn into the turd hole that is today’s America. Trudeau is actually on to a winning strategy.
Canada is not a revolutionary country. Canada has a long history of using paramilitary (RCMP) and military force to bring restive parts of the country back under control. The truckers got given the velvet, p#ssy-boy treatment. I was actually shocked at how kid-gloves Canada has been with them. I do not expect that to continue and the next time the truckers try this stunt again they will feel the full force of the Canadian state on their neo-Nazi, right-wing asses. You can bank that (though not with sketchy crypto, though).
If Oh Canada doesn’t stand up now they will be China in less than ten years. After all, Turdhead admires china the most!
Hmm, it looks like that communist clown is finally coming out of the closet.
Truedope thought of threatening everyone’s first born male child but decided it was too Jewish.
Perhaps surprisingly the the EA was lifted on Fe. 23, after it became apparent the Senate Senate wasn’t going to rubber stamp the deal.
Apart from being more able to quickly commandeer tow trucks, the EA also allowed crowdsourcing to be subject to FINTRAC review and apparently the seizure of bank accounts without due process.
How far the Canadian Emergencies Act can go to squelch rights was a shock to many Canadians and observers around the world.
