The Toronto Star is reporitng that "One of the lawyers representing the core Freedom Convoy organizers at the Public Order Emergency Commission was asked to leave the hearing room on Tuesday after a tense exchange with the commissioner overseeing the proceedings. Commissioner Paul Rouleau instructed security to remove Freedom Corp. lawyer Brendan Miller, after arguing over federal government redactions to documents, and an attempt to have a ministerial staffer added to the witness list."
"First raising this request when the commission took a break during Mendicino's testimony, the commissioner told him that if he wanted to have a last-minute witness added to the roster, he needed to make his submission in writing." Except he already had. Twice. When the lawyer pointed that out to the judge the judge had him removed. This is a complete farce.
What's the real issue here? Whether or not the Emergency Act was ever remotely justified, the government had absolutely no right to freeze every bank account of hard working civilians who donated to the truckers on route to Ottawa. That was a criminal act. Do you think this fake inquiry will ever address that? Not a chance. That makes the whole thing a complete farce.

Today's @NDP under Jagmeet Singh betrays that legacy and supports Liberals on the Emergencies Act.
Shame. A very dangerous precedent is being set.#cdnpoli https://t.co/TvH8uIzi6B
The chief superintendent in charge of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) response to the Freedom Convoy said “The profile of the protester for this event was none like I’ve ever seen in my 36-year career. We had everything from grandparents – you know, my first day in this assignment I was shown a picture of two officers that had worked for me in the past, who retired, who were in the crowd – we saw children, we saw a lot of crestfallen police officers in the crowd, nurses . It wasn’t your normal group of people that you’re dealing with.”
Hope only goes so far.ReplyDelete
The difference between those who are running this corrupt show and those of us exposing/fighting it?
They don't hope, they just do.
We need to really understand that a little better.
Until we actually RESIST, this will continue. Not doing so tells them they can continue with their plans.Delete
It seems like every "inquiry" they ever do is only to say they have done an inquiry, not to actually have a real one, and certainly not to effect any changes or hold anyone in authority accountable for their misdeeds. "We have investigated ourselves, and we find that we did nothing wrong". ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC.ReplyDelete
CBC news reported that all 200 bank accounts frozen belonged to organizers of the rallyReplyDelete
But we all know that is a lie. Ordinary people, including working single mothers had their bank accounts frozen for simply donating to the cause.Delete
Stop listening to CBC, you make yourself sound stupid.Delete
Resisting our government’s plans is certainly something the Trudeau does not want and he had to react with extremes. If they didn’t then the next move (abolishing all firearms) might very well be resisted aggressively by the general public. We need to announce a firmly that we will not stand for government policies which negatively effect us and are not supported by the majority. Stop allowing our elected (possibly falsely elected) government ram ridiculous laws down our throats. When do these insane acts begin to be intolerable?ReplyDelete
My bank accounts were frozen when I donated 100$ to the lawyer fund for the trucker convoy. 18 years and 6 accounts at TD bank all gone and no explanation from them ever! So what ever cbc news tells you it's BS!!ReplyDelete
