As it turns out, the only real violence that happened, according to the testimony of Zexi Li, the woman who was behind the injunction to end the honking of air horns was egg-throwing from people she knew at the truckers. Tho, they didn't get mischief charges and accounts seized.
Justin Trudeau's case against the Freedom Convoy falls on its face
How are our elected officials who purvey what can only be called misinformation be held to account? ...
One has to ask, how are our elected officials who purvey what can only be called misinformation or even disinformation be held to account? Recall, that the commission has no power to sanction the Trudeau government, even if the report finds that invoking an emergency was unjustified and did not meet the necessary legal threshold. With his effective majority in Parliament, thanks to Jagmeet Singh and the NDP, Trudeau could simply put the report on a shelf to gather dust. Yet, the public has been witness to nothing less than a debunking of the official narrative. Will they be satisfied with inaction after the commission files its report?
However things play out, public trust in our officials and our media establishment has been damaged, and that’s not good for Canadian democracy.

Alas, "things are not getting done" is not a sufficient legal requirement to invoke martial law.
The Emergencies Act requires a grave danger to Canadians or the country itself, that no other law can handle.
The Liberals know they illegally invoked martial law.

Canada's largest newspaper (and largest recipient of Trudeau's journalism bail-out) says about a peaceful protest: we must "make sure it doesn't return".
Are there other political groups that the Star says shouldn't have freedom of speech or assembly?
Or just Trudeau's enemies?
The only ‘extreme’ and ‘racist’ behaviour at the convoy was from the govt/police themselves, who ganged up on me, beat me, ripped off my turban etc.
The freedom convoy was nothing but love and Oneness. Mainstream media will never show this.

PM @JustinTrudeau doesn't want you to know how he is viewed abroad.
British Tory MP @danny__kruger told the UK parliament last week that the Liberal government was among the "worst offenders" alongside China when it came to depriving civil liberties during Covid-19.
The Freedom Convoy Media Strategy
Stripping legacy media of legitimacy
"Bodily autonomy, that is where I draw the line. That is mine, it is not my government's," says Brigitte Belton, one of the early organizers of the Freedom Convoy, about Justin Trudeau's coercive vaccine mandates.
Trudeau was hoping to get Canada’s own January 6 event during the Convoy. He did everything he could to provoke it, including the Emergencies Act. His lapdog media pretended it was a violent insurrection.
It was just a festive and peaceful protest.
OPP intelligence chief reported 'ethical' qualms about calls for background checks on some convoy protesters
'The potential 'targets' are not engaged in criminal activity' — OPP Supt. Pat Morris
Pierre Poilievre reaffirms his support for Freedom Convoy, ‘free choice in vaccination’
'I support those peaceful and law-abiding protesters who demonstrated for their lives and livelihoods.'
You would think that in a country in which many people, certainly many of the elites, profess liberal and progressive values, a lot of them would have been disturbed by last winter’s declaration of an emergency. Police forces acting under government orders broke up a peaceful protest in the nation’s capital, and the bank accounts of many innocent Canadians who participated in, or gave support to, the Freedom Convoy were frozen. ...
What is even more alarming is that the major banks were apparently pleased with this suggestion. One financial institution, Farm Credit Canada, a Crown corporation that provides financial services primarily to farms, went so far as to tell its employees to proactively and secretly record the names of customers who they suspected may have been involved with the convoy, according to a Blacklock’s Reporter story based on documents provided through an access to information request. This sounds more like communist East Germany, than India or Hungary.
But it’s not just the liberal elite who seem to be giving up on liberal values in Canada. A recent poll by Innovative Research Group found that 51 per cent of Canadians surveyed said that they supported the use of the Emergencies Act, which is actually up two per cent since February.
Look at the Canadian trucker convoy, protesting for the right to not have an experimental medicine pumped into their bodies.
Suddenly someone shows up with a Nazi flag. Who? We don’t know. The truckers were trying to figure it out too. We’re not going to comment either way, because no political side is short on stupid, but we do ask, how hard would it be for a government agent, or even another citizen looking to discredit the protest to do this? I mean, I could get my hands on a Nazi flag and walk into a protest for a photo op before the week is over.
But that one photo gets spun into articles like this…
Democrat President Joe Biden pressured Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to shut down the Canadian trucker “Freedom Convoy” protests early last year, according to reports.
Biden administration officials reportedly stepped in at the height of the Canadian trucker protests as the convoy occupied Ottawa, Canada’s capital.
The revelation of Biden’s involvement came from an investigation into Trudeau’s decision to use the Emergencies Act to shut down the protests.
The Emergencies Act replaced the War Measures Act in 1988 and had never been used before.
A literal false flag.
I'll say it again. For all the shit we given Canadians, we didn't do anything like this in the US during the scamdemic.
I'll say it again. For all the shit we given Canadians, we didn't do anything like this in the US during the scamdemic. Our brothers to the north still have a few lessons to teach us.
PMO texts show banks were pressured to seize Freedom Convoy funds before Emergencies Act
Text exchanges between senior staffers in the Prime Minister's Office reveal that the Trudeau Liberals were exploring how to seize funds prior to invoking the Emergencies Act.

I admire these truckers.
