Constitutional Rights Group Is Suing Canadian Federal Government For Unlawful Invocation Of Emergencies Act.
A constitutional rights organization has filed a lawsuit against Ottawa for invoking the Emergencies Act and blocking the financial accounts of many people who took part in recent rallies against the government COVID-19 regulations. In a news release dated February 25, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) announced it had launched a constitutional challenge against the federal government on behalf of four Canadians, including two decorated military veterans and a former police officer.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland defended the Liberal government’s use of the Emergencies Act to deal with protesters in Ottawa, claiming that the demonstrators are attempting to “usurp the authority” of the democratically elected government.

After comparing someone financially supporting the truckers to backing a terrorist movement, Lametti made the filthy remark during an interview with CTV. “You just made a comparison between folks who might have donated to this and people who might be sponsoring a terrorist,” the reporter said. “Sir, I just want to be clear. Many people say things like, “Look, I really don’t like your vaccine mandates and I donated to this; now that it’s unlawful, should I be concerned that my bank account will be frozen?” “How do you respond to that?” “Well, I believe if you’re part of a pro-Trump movement and you’re donating hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions…Read More
