Days after the Canadian Parliament voted to allow Justin Trudeau to continue using the Emergencies Act, he announced on Wednesday that he revoked the measure.
The decision to revoke his emergency powers is a rather surprising one considering he had them for at least three more weeks. Especially since he’s been utilizing the nearly limitless power that the Emergencies Act granted him to violently end the Freedom Convoy.
“Today, after careful consideration, we’re ready to confirm that the situation is no longer an emergency. Therefore, the federal government will be ending the use of the Emergencies Act,” Trudeau said during a press conference.
“We are confident that existing laws and bylaws are sufficient to keep people safe,” he added.
What changed his mind in such a short amount of time? Could it be the intense and incredible backlash he’s faced not just from citizens across the world but also political leaders?
Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky, said the Emergencies Act is very, very dangerous” and warned against similar legislation that exists in the United States.
“I think statutes that allow presidents or heads of state to invoke emergencies are very, very dangerous,” said Paul during an episode of the BASED Politics podcast that aired Sunday. “We have the same sort of statutes here, and I have long-time been an opponent of these. We actually have in the United States an Emergency Act that allows the president to shut down the internet.”
Romanian Member of European Parliament Cristian Terhes likened the prime minister to a tyrant and dictator.
“The prime minister of Canada, the way he’s behaving right now, he’s exactly like a tyrant, a dictator. He’s like Ceau?escu in Romania,” Terhes said, referring to the former Romanian communist dictator.
According to an article from the Republicworld.com:
China has criticized the Canadian government for its description of demonstrators in Freedom Convoy and the protesters in Hong Kong. It stated that Justin Trudeau’s administration has shown its double standards. As per the reports of Global News, Wang Wenbin, who is the spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry, said the subject is a Canadian internal matter on which he has no comment.
However, he further said that similar protests and demonstrations have been referred to differently in various regions. He said that they were referred to as the human rights movement in Hong Kong, but they are referred to as a threat to democracy in Canada and such a blatant double standard is intolerable.
Wang further said that when protesters in Hong Kong attacked police and seriously disrupted public order, the Canadian side labeled it as human rights movement, made irresponsible remarks, and slandered the Hong Kong police. In a foreign policy speech on August 19, 2019, Trudeau stated that his government will remain steadfast in its reaction to the Hong Kong protests and that Canada would continue to protect its human rights and international law ideals.
People from around the world took to social media to criticize and ridicule Trudeau, bringing up the rumor of Fidel Castrol being his father and likening him to Adolf Hitler.
No matter what his parentage is, he’s proving more and more that he is little more than a tyrant and a globalist puppet. He cares not for the Canadian people and only about keeping power. Had he not received such intense backlash from around the world, would he have revoked the Emergencies Act?
How far would he have taken his limitless powers?
No governmental leader should have that much power over its people.
