ER Editor: See also this from Zerohedge – Trudeau Revokes Emergency Powers Act:
And here, he says he’s ‘confident that existing laws and bylaws are now sufficient to keep people safe.’
Two days after Canadian lawmakers voted to extend emergency powers allowing police to quell potential unrest, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now set to revoke them now that the Ottawa protest is over, according to the Canadian Press, citing two senior government sources.
Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time last week, saying police required additional support to end blockades.
We assume that bank accounts of Freedom Convoy supporters are still subject to being frozen.
JustIncredible TV on Youtube gives us a little commentary and shows some Senate debate, including that of Donald Plett, which is quite impressive and comprehensive.
Being the cynics that we are, we can’t help wondering what else is going on behind the scenes. “Oh, the Senate did their jobs and Trudeau didn’t want to be humiliated” is a bit too pat for us. In a matter of less than a week, the Act is invoked and ACTED UPON by law enforcement ILLEGALLY before a debate and vote happen (protestors’ heads get cracked through the weekend, they get removed by and large), then it gets passed by tone-deaf politicians on Monday, only to be revoked by Trudeau himself. Because, the Senate was doing its job. Something doesn’t add up. A run on the banks was also feared because of the alleged seizure of the bank accounts of those donating to the truckers.
As Kennedy Hall notes below, it’s still a developing story. And what about those bank accounts?
BREAKING: Trudeau gov’t dropping Emergencies Act early after pressure from Senate
KENNEDY HALL for LIFESITE NEWS
It’s believed that the prime minister revoked the act before the Senate voiced its disapproval.

The drastic change in governance comes as the Canadian Senate has spent the last two days debating whether to approve the EA when a national emergency is not present.
Conservative Senator Leo Housakos has led the charge in the Senate, and he gave an impassioned speech today against using the EA under the circumstances.
“This country is deeply divided like I’ve never seen,” Housakos said. “It’s moments like this when the executive branch of government and every prime minister has an obligation to put the nations interests above the interests of himself, his party, and partisan politics.”
Many Canadian Senators are independent, even if appointed by a Liberal Prime Minister, and have expressed growing concerns that they believe Trudeau thinks they are there simply to “rubber stamp” his policies, even if objectionable.
Canadian politicos have opined that Trudeau saw the writing on the wall given the rising anti-Trudeau mood in the Senate, and that the PM revoked the act before he could be made to look foolish for having invoked it in the first place.
Trudeau has revoked the Emergencies Act right as Senators began to speak out on it and as an urgent application for judicial review made its way to federal court today.

This story is developing, and it is not yet clear what will happen to bank accounts of convoy supporters that were frozen under the EA.
