It’s now a matter of fact and law that Justin Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act was illegal. The government violated the constitution by freezing bank accounts and cracking down on civil liberties. And even invoking the Emergencies Act in the first place was done without compliance with the act itself. Even though the federal government is vowing to appeal, yesterday’s Federal Court ruling is a black mark on Trudeau’s government. In this edition of The Andrew Lawton Show, Christine Van Geyn of the Canadian Constitution Foundation returns to dig into the decision and discuss what it means. Former Conservative leader Candice Bergen returns to talk about why she remains proud of being on the “right side of history” for opposing the act.
Plus, the Liberals are still trying to make their misguided firearms “buyback” happen. Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights CEO Rod Giltaca joins to discuss the latest.
