Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical hold on Canadians is finally starting to loosen.
The arrogant pretty boy of the north’s façade is finally giving way.
And now Justin Trudeau just got the smackdown of his life by this Canadian Judge.
Judge rules Trudeau’s Freedom Convoy decision “unreasonable”
In 2022, a convoy of Canadian truckers gathered to protest against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s COVID-19 mandates.
The Prime Minister invoked the Emergencies Act in February 2022, after thousands of protestors from the Freedom Convoy took to the streets.
Once the Emergencies Act went into place, it gave the government extreme powers to remove and arrest protestors and even worse, the power to freeze their finances.
It also allowed authorities to commandeer tow trucks to remove the protestors’ vehicles.
However, according to Canadian Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley, using the Emergencies Act was “unreasonable.”
The ruling was in response to a case filed by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Canadian Constitution Foundation, and others who said the protests did not meet the legal threshold for the government to use such powers granted under the Act.
The Emergencies Act had never been used before the protests and was originally instituted to combat terrorists and terrorism.
Most of the protests, which started in January 2022, were peaceful and included truckers who used their vehicles to block roads in Ottawa and along the U.S. border.
The protest was in opposition to vaccine mandates and lockdowns, while the Trudeau government labeled the protestors “racists.”
The decision to invoke the Emergencies Act was reportedly at the urging of the Biden Administration, and it allowed the government to arrest Freedom Convoy leaders, freeze bank accounts of protestors, and seize any donations that went toward supporting the protest.
However, according to the Act, there must be “threats to the security of Canada that are so serious as to be a national emergency” for the government to declare a public emergency.
It refers to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service regarding the definition of a threat, which includes things like serious violence, foreign interference, espionage, or intent to overthrow the government.
Part of the reading by Judge Mosley said, “I have concluded that the decision to issue the Proclamation does not bear the hallmarks of reasonableness – justification, transparency and intelligibility – and was not justified in relation to the relevant factual and legal constraints that were required to be taken into consideration.”
Trudeau did not pass the test
Judge Mosley also added that the “potential for serious violence” was “a valid reason for concern.”
“But in my view, it did not satisfy the test required to invoke the Act,” he added.
He also added that the Canadian Government’s actions “infringed” on the rights guaranteed to citizens under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Mosley said, “It is declared that the Regulations infringed section 2(b) of the Charter and declared that the Order infringed section 8 of the Charter and that neither infringement was justified under section 1.”
The latest ruling goes against recent findings from an inquiry that was mostly led by Trudeau government officials, which declared that the government did meet the threshold.
As it stands, the government said it plans to appeal Mosley’s decision.
