Today a large group of protesters are calling on Jagmeet Singh to return to the roots of Jack Layton’s NDP.
Jagmeet Singh has voiced his approval to back Justin Trudeau’s use of the Emergcies Act on a fake emergency.
The NDP is supposed to be the party fighting for working Canadians. Under Jagmeet Singh’s leadership all of that has been ignored as he proves he’s a useful idiot and Trudeau’s puppet.
If Jagmeet Singh is ignoring working Canadians and just backing Trudeau at every turn to destroy the working class. Does he really have the working Canadians in mind or is he looking out for his own personal gain?
The Emergencies Act is only to be used when all of Canadians lives are at risk or threatened and if no other measure can be used before hand.
Trudeau’s reason of invoking the Emergencies Act was to clear blockades at the Coutts Border and a few others across Canada. These borders have been cleared using local provincial and municipal laws to de-escalate peaceful and the protesters peacefully and voluntarily left the area before he even tried to invoke the Emergcies Act.
The other reason Trudeau insisted he needs to grant himself 100% full dictator powers across Canada is to clear peaceful protesters from protesting in Ottawa at parliament hill. The protesters in Ottawa have also been cleared using local bylaw enforcement laws and police enforcement that didn’t require powers of the Emergencies Act.
Multiple Premiers have spoken out about the gross misuse of the Emerganies Act. Jason Keeney will be challenging the use in court
“This sets a dangerous precedent for the future if they can reach in over top of (the provinces) and usurp our jurisdiction on law enforcement,” he said.
Premier of Saskatchewan Scott Moe has also rejected the use of the Emergencies Act while all of the Conservative caucus also reject it’s use.
The Green party is reported to be split with Elizabeth May in favor of the use and Mike Morrice is reported to vote no on the Emergcies Act.
All of the Conservative caucus is set to vote against the use of the Emergcies Act
Leaving a Conservative caucus meeting on Wednesday, Bergen said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau didn’t attempt to thoroughly rectify the protesting and blockades in Ottawa and elsewhere with the existing powers he had. “The first act that he does when he has a chance to do something – he doesn’t go through step one, two, three – he goes straight to 100 and invokes the Emergencies Act,” she said
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) has pushed forward a court challenge against Trudeau to block the unjustified use of the Emergencies act.
“This morning I listened carefully to the Prime Minister and heard no new legal justifications for a national emergency and the enormous power the government is hoping to give to itself to bypass the typical democratic process. The situation in Ottawa has been complicated, difficult and painful, in particular for marginalized communities who have experienced racial and homophobic intimidation by some. Governments already have the lawful authority to address difficult situations and do so all the time. This use of the Emergencies Act is unnecessary, unjustifiable and unconstitutional.”
The Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) has announced it is launching a legal challenge to the federal government’s invocation of the Emergencies Act. The challenge will be by way of urgent application for judicial review at the Federal Court.
“Prime Minister Trudeau has set a dangerous precedent by invoking the never before used federal Emergencies Act to address the current situation. The high threshold for declaring a public order emergency in the Emergencies Act has not been met.
A large amount of Canadian lawyers also do not support the use of the Emergencies Act saying “the Emergencies Act contains very strict criteria which must be met in order for the federal government to declare a Public Order Emergency.”
