Emergencies Act: An Autocratic Suspension of Civil Liberties Is a Dangerous Failure
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has subjected the Canadian population to the first and only invocation of the sweeping Emergencies Act without justification for a problem he created, deliberately exacerbated, and did nothing to resolve.
Even though Trudeau may believe
declaring an unnecessary emergency demonstrates strong leadership and will
attract short-term public support, as the facts come out the autocratic stench
will stick with him for the rest of his expiring political career and beyond.
