The truth about the Emergency Measures Act use:
President Joe Biden demanded Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stop the ‘freedom convoy‘ that protested at the US-Canada border against vaccine mandates, right before Trudeau invoked emergency powers to end it.
Trudeau is set to testify in Ottawa on Friday regarding his decision to clear out the convoy as part of the Canadian government’s investigation into the PM using those powers.
The trucker protest grew until it closed vital trade routes along the Canada-U.S. border and shut down key parts of the capital for more than three weeks. But all border blockades were ended on February 14.
It has been revealed that Biden pressed on his Canadian counterpart to stop the convoy, with Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland saying that Washington was ‘very, very, very worried.’
The minister emailed staff on February 10 saying that the US government feared ‘all of their northeastern car plants will shut down’ if the convoy was not stopped within 12 hours.
Freeland had been speaking that same day to Biden’s top economic advisor, Brian Deese, who was himself worried about the blockades and said they could cost around $2.9billion in trade.
Of course more truth on that is the EMA was applied AFTER the trucks at the border ended, as it states in the article, But Trudeau used it to end a legal and peaceful protest on Parliament Hill and downtown. Yet they were not used to end protests by BLM across Canada which set buildings on fire and looted stores. (Most violence starts when it gets dark.
