Last week Justin Trudeau revoked his use of the Emergencies Act because there’s no actual emergency. So why there hurdreds of Canadians still suffering with frozen bank accounts, credit cards, retirement investments and mortgages?
Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said such heavy-handed measures were essential as the Trudeau government sent banks on a witch hunt through the account records and credit histories of regular Canadians who had provided money to the Freedom Convoy.
“we know these platforms are being used to support illegal blockades and illegal activity which is damaging the Canadian economy.” said Freeland.
The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), is the federal agency within the Department of Finance responsible for detecting and preventing money laundering, terrorism financing and transfers of the proceeds of crime.
FINTRAC is the agency directly under Freelands’s department and they say otherwise. The donors were just the average person sick of covid restrictions not people wanting to overthrow the government.
“It was (donors’) own money. It wasn’t cash that funded terrorism or was in any way money laundering,” MacKillop testified.
He added, “There were people around the world who were fed up with COVID and were upset and saw the demonstrations. I believe they just wanted to support the cause.”
Legally these Canadian’s have done nothing wrong or criminal that justifies freezing their accounts so the only other thing is political financial prisoners. Their lives have been crippled and lost everything based on nothing except them just disagreeing with the government.
Opposition oppression isn’t a new thing and has been used around the world by other government’s and dictators.
The Emergencies Act is the War Measures Act that apparently still “respects” the Chater of Rights. Justin Trudeau’s delusions created an imaginary war in his head about what was actually going on.
To get a visual of what was going on in Justin Trudeau’s head we just need to look at one place. An actual real war. The Russia – Ukraine war.
Missiles flying, gun fire, bombs dropping, tanks rolling down the roads, people hiding underground and fleeing the country. That is an emergency.
Not the Teuckers for Freedom convoy. It brought tourism to Ottawa, people in hot tubs and trucks honking horns, lots of food and took care of the homeless. Sure there was a couple unacceptable flags but were only seen once and do not pose any danger to our democracy. No buildings were “occupied” and the government wasn’t prevented from working once, except ine the one day the government instructed for police action to take place on peaceful protesters.
The Liberals have clearly demonstrated they have lack of knowledge or they just don’t care about our democratic rights to release Canadias’ money and admit with a publicly apology for their unjustified overreach.
