Trudeau voiced support for farmers in India who blocked major highways to New Delhi for more than a year in 2021, saying at the time: “Canada will always be there to defend the right of peaceful protest.”
Fast forward to 2022, and Trudeau has morphed into Mussolini.
Justin Trudeau is Canada’s maximum leader, its strongman, its potentate. Justin Trudeau is the dictator of Canada. If you think that’s an overstatement, try to think of another way to describe what Justin Trudeau is now doing.
For the first time in Canada’s history, Trudeau has invoked what’s known as the Emergencies Act, but the protests he is facing hardly qualify as an emergency. But suddenly, Justin Trudeau has the power to crush all political opposition to his rule, and that’s exactly what he’s doing. Trudeau has ended free speech in Canada. He’s banned free assembly. Trudeau’s government has shut down political rallies and arrested his political critics without probable cause. Trudeau has instituted internal passports, that restrict travel within Canada, to the politically obedient. Canadians are no longer allowed to leave their own country unless they obey Justin Trudeau. And if they don’t obey, they could be bankrupted and destroyed. He now has the power to do that. Trudeau has claimed the power to freeze the financial assets of any Canadian who resists him. No court order is required to do this, he just decides.
Justin Trudeau can even dictate what you do for a living and how you do it. Today, Trudeau threatened to arrest tow truck drivers who refused to tow the trucks of protesters. Is this really about stopping the spread of coronavirus? No one in Canada is even pretending that it is anymore. Trudeau himself didn’t mention the risk of COVID a single time yesterday. He’s not worried about unvaccinated truckers spreading a virus. Trudeau is worried about Canadians resisting his rule. And that’s why Trudeau’s government announced yesterday they plan to regulate cryptocurrency forever.
……Oh, the Terrorist Financing Act. So that was a law passed to defeat Al Qaeda. Now it’s being used to stop law-abiding Canadians, middle-class people, students, truck drivers, from protecting their earnings from the total mismanagement of Canada’s Central Bank. Justin Trudeau has wrecked the Canadian economy; but thanks to the Terrorist Financing Act, there is no escape from the consequences. Canadians are going to have to live with the consequences of Justin Trudeau’s fiscal recklessness, whether they want to or not. Otherwise, they’re terrorists.
It shouldn’t surprise you that Trudeau’s first move in the face of a trucker protest was to clamp down on cryptocurrency. Democrats will try this in this country, guaranteed. They’ll tell us Bitcoin is a Russian plot, CNN will dutifully back them up. Watch it happen. But at the same time, you’ve got to wonder, since we’re speaking of terrorism, what happened to the actual terrorists? Those do exist. How is Justin Trudeau treating them? Well, let’s see. A few years ago, Justin Trudeau gave more than $10 million in taxpayer money in a settlement to a self-described Al Qaeda soldier called Omar Khadr. Khadr murdered a U.S. Army sergeant.
……Media organizations have been agitating against democracy for years now, even as they’ve posed loudly as its greatest defenders. In February of 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, Vice Media ran this headline: “Anti-vaxxers are terrified the government will ‘enforce’ a vaccine for coronavirus.” “Anti-vax groups on social media are claiming that the spread of the disease will lead to mandatory vaccinations and unlimited surveillance.” Yeah, those conspiracy nuts. Now that all of that has actually happened, Vice has not apologized, instead Vice is helping Justin Trudeau to hurt anyone who complains about him.
In October of that same year, 2020, the CBC warned Canadians about a “disinformation campaign [that] falsely suggests Canadians will be forcibly sent to quarantine sites.” A few months later, as if on cue, the Trudeau government began forcibly sending Canadians to quarantine sites. But the CBC never apologized for posting what turned out to be disinformation. Instead, they set about enforcing Justin Trudeau’s latest decrees. They see that as their job. So by the way, this is the so-called academic community. These are the university professors who’ve been granted lifetime job security, precisely so they can think for themselves. Freely, independent from government control. And yet, in practice, no one is more controlled by the government than they are.
The executive director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Noa Mendelsohn Aviv, said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s “emergency” order bypassed the democratic process and was much too powerful for the situation at hand in response to Laura Ingraham probing whether it crossed into dictatorial territory on Tuesday.
NOA MENDELSOHN AVIV: Right now, they’ve just gotten started — they just declared an emergency. They’ve just put before parliament the order in council that says this is the emergency that’s happening. But in our view … difficult situations, challenging situations happen all the time. Governments have the tools to deal with them, and the emergency powers are much too large power, that bypasses the democratic process, ]and] too broad.
You support freedom? No bank account for you! Chrystia Freeland announces that the government of Canada gives full authorization to financial institutions “to temporarily cease providing financial services” and “review their relationships with anyone involved in the blockade.”
The usually placid Canadians have had enough.
Including members of his own parliament:
This is not an emergency, this is not a coup. Protesters and police are actually on the same side – it is Trudeau that is the aggressor, it is Trudeau that is causing an emergency, and it is Trudeau that has got to go. pic.twitter.com/baQdtAhI1U

Several Canadian provincial executives resisted Trudeau’s invocation of emergency powers on Monday to shut down the Freedom Convoy protests against vaccine mandates.
Toronto Sun: Trudeau has ‘gone too far’.
