Trudeau’s Tyranny: Freezes Accounts of Protesters

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on Monday in an effort to crack down on protesters that have shut down parts of Ottawa and various border crossings with the U.S.

Trudeau informed his cabinet and Canada’s premiers of his intent Monday morning. The prime minister’s announcement marks the first time the act, which replaced the War Measures Act in 1988, has been employed.

“After discussing with cabinet and caucus, after consultation with premiers from all provinces and territories, the federal government has invoked the emergencies act to supplement provincial and territorial capacity to address the blockades and occupations,” Trudeau announced in a press conference. “I want to be very clear, the scope of these measures will be time-limited, geographically targeted, as well as reasonable and proportionate to the threats they are meant to address. The emergencies act will be used to strengthen and support law enforcement agencies at all levels across the country.”

The Emergencies Act powers will “strengthen” law enforcement’s ability to fine and imprison protesters, according to the prime minister. The act will be enforced most heavily in areas of “critical infrastructure” such as airports and border crossings. Trudeau said that the act also ensures “essential services” such as towing away trucks used to blockade roads and highways.

“In addition, financial institutions will be authorized and directed to render essential services to help address the situation including by regulating and prohibiting the use of property to fund or support illegal blockades,” Trudeau added.

The prime minister emphasized that the Canadian military would not be called in to break up the demonstrations.

“We’re not using the emergencies act to call in the military. We are not suspending fundamental rights or overriding the charter of rights and freedoms. We are not limiting people’s freedom of speech. We are not limiting freedom of peaceful assembly. We are not preventing people from exercising their right to protest legally. We are reinforcing the principles, values and institutions that keep all Canadians free,” Trudeau asserted.

The prime minister described the use of the Emergencies Act as a “last resort.”

Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s finance minister, later said that banks and other financial institutions in Canada have the authority to “temporarily cease providing financial services where the institution suspects that an account is being used to further the illegal blockades and occupations. This order covers both personal and corporate accounts.”

Crowd-funding platforms, which protesters have used to sustain their weeks-long demonstrations, would fall under the enforcement of “Canada’s anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules,” Freeland said.

“These changes cover all forms of transactions,” she said. “The illegal blockades have highlighted the fact that crowd-funding platforms and some of the payment service providers they use are not fully captured under the proceeds of the Crime and Terrorist Financing Act.”

The Emergencies Act defines an emergency as a situation “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it.”

Protesters with the “Freedom Convoy” have shut down parts of downtown Ottawa for roughly three weeks over restrictive COVID-19 measures and vaccine mandates. Convoy organizer Tamara Leach said earlier on Monday that protesters will continue to “hold the line” against the Canadian government’s crackdown.

  1. Tyrants consider the exercise of freedom of speech in opposition to tyranny to be terrorism.

    • Hombre, what you & so many others, are REFUSING to see, is that this CEASED to be “free speech” & a ” peaceful protest” when trucks began blockingoff streets & trnt encampments were raised in the streets, thus impeding others’ businesses, & the movement of emergency services, thus endangering lives! ALL that has served to do is fuel the narrative that conservatives are the “evil & violent” ones. LAWS have been broken by doing this, & 2 wrongs will never make a right; WE can’t win by playing into the globalists’ hands! By doing this, those involved have hurt themselves further; they have hurt the cause for which they started out, & everyone supporting them as well. The globalists now have the law on their side once again, & the added “fuel” to make those in opposition to the mandates outtobe the lawless, evil trouble makers. HOW, exactly, does that relieve any of the onerous mandates? The “protesters have now become that which they started out opposing: the criminal tyrants! If any of us are going to fight this, we have to stay WITHIN the extant laws, else, like these, we have already LOST!

  2. I would like to see Trudeau’s position reversed and put in the truckers seat. It appears to me that Trudeau is hiding something !!. The majority of people do not like what Trudeau is doing and yet he wants to punish the people that elected him. Has anyone looked around to see who is pushing Trudeau’s buttons ?. Canada has been a highly respected country and it is sad that a POWER HUNGRY JERK is going to destroy is reputation because of a propaganda supported power grab costing 1000s of lives to be effected the lives that elected him.
    Trudeau NEEDS TO LOOK AT FACTS NOT PROPAGANDA AND HEARSAY

    • No, YOU need to look at the facts! Yes, the gov’ts, all over the west, at least, have begun violating laws& human rights, in recent yrs, on an unprecedented scale! Yes, what they are doing is pure EVIL! No argument there. But have you looked into WHY that’s happening on such a wide, international scale, all at once, in a coordinated attack on all our values, cultures, rights, etc??? Have you sought to understand WHY so much blatant evil is erupting all over our cities? Or have you just let your emotions burst out without thought as to why this is happening; what the end game really is, & why NOW?
      This has been in the works, for hundredsof yrs, in fact. It had been prophesied, even before that, by Jewis, Christian, Muslim & Catholic prophets, & here it is unfolding in our faces! This is not just a political battle of ideologies; it’s a spiritual war between Good & Evil, that has been raging for millennia, & is reaching its climax, in our lifetimes. We, ALL of us humans, are just pawns for other forces, who are waging this war, for the most part, but WE DO have a choice in how we are used& by which side. We can’t afford to go off, half-cocked, as the Canadians have done, & play right into the hands of Evil; we need to be wiser (not necessarily smarter, there’s a difference). None of the people you think are leading, pulling strings, etc, ARE doing so; they’re as much puppets as the rest! 1st you need to decide whose side you want to be on: if Evil, you need do nothing, but if Good, then you’ll need to repent all your past evils (sins), sincerely ceasing to practice any of them, then ask Jesus Christ to become your Redeemer, & begin following His ways. That includes working within man’s laws except where they conflict with God’s laws, whereupon God’s always supersede. You also need to understand Evil will appear to win, here, on Earth, for a set time, but Good will ultimately triumph!

  3. Tyranny is described as cruel and oppressive government rule.

    Canadians need to throw off the tyrant(s).

  4. You guys voted him in not once but twice. Keep in mind be careful what you wish for cause you might just get it. Kick him out of office. And do not look to the USofA either. This government, under Biden, is doing the same thing as Trudeau but just being more sneaky about it. We are in the same boat as you guys up north, Welcome to the second newest Banana Republic of the Americas, Canada. America was the first newest Banana of the Americas.

  5. Canadians voted to elect this guy TWICE, so until they throw the cretin out of office, they deserve everything they’re getting…

  6. Just like his commie father Fidel, he will do what he wants to remain in power and keep anyone from speaking out against him

  7. Do you still trust “the government” to keep you safe? The French revolutionaries slaughtered thousands of innocent citizens who didn’t agree with them…. Are we next?

    • Between Biden and his admin, and Trudeau with his Cabinet, anything can happen. We will be just like Cuba in the next two years or so! This is communism and we don’t like it.

      • Trudeau is a coward, Biden has dementia and neither country stands a chance. A war is coming on American And Canadian soil. If you are not ready, then you should find a way out now. Prepare yourselves, get armed, find the place that you will defend and stay alert. Both governments are coming for you. Fight with everything you have. Do not allow them to live.

  8. Caitlyn Jenner is going to donate her testicles to Trudeau.

    • That shit is funny. That stupid fucking Prime Minister needs to be thrown out physically into the streets and kicked and beaten like the filthy damn dog that he is.🤬

  9. This will be Canadas Tiananmen Square moment.

  10. How sad!! The US and Canada used to be two great free nations with freedom of speech and assembly. Now we are. Both banana republics with idiots for leaders.

  11. Hey, what do you know. A bunch of double-talking basturd gunsels, JUST LIKE WE HAVE IN WASHINGTON.
    WHAT A BUNCH OF ILL-BRED TRASH

  12. Since when does Canada take its orders from America?? Only since we put a little boy in charge! He’s having a temper tantrum! Bet he was jumping up and down.
