Trudeau Felt ‘Serene’ While Freezing Freedom Convoy Protesters’ Bank Accounts

Canada’s liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that he felt “serene” while he was ordering the bank accounts of Freedom Convoy protesters to be frozen.

Trudeau made the comment during his testimony before the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC).

The PM tried to justify his use of the Emergencies Act to stop the Freedom Convoy protests.

During the protests, he used the Emergencies Act to blacklist and freeze the bank accounts of protesters who were supporting civil liberties.

Trudeau admitted that the protests were not violent but still insisted that he is “confident” with his decision to use a law that has never been used before to stop the protests.

“There was no loss of life,” Trudeau testified.

“There was no serious violence.

“There hasn’t been a recurrence of these kinds of illegal occupations since then.

“I am absolutely serene and confident that I made the right choice in agreeing with the invocation,” Trudeau declared.

The commission is investigating whether the government’s decision to use the Emergencies Act was justifiable.

Trudeau said that the “responsibility of a prime minister is to make the tough calls and keep people safe.”

Before the Emergencies Act was invoked, Trudeau said that those opposing Covid measures and restrictions were of a “small, fringe minority” who had “unacceptable views.”
