At a meeting of the Emergency Review Committee, struck to examine Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s February power grab, parliamentarians listened to witnesses who spoke about the RCMP crackdown of the digital financial sector.

As originally reported by The Counter Signal, Trudeau had federal officers order crypto firms to freeze access to 29 Bitcoin addresses, along with a handful of other crypto wallets.

Dustin Walper, CEO of Newton.co tees off on Trudeau’s committee

The RCMP scrambled to assist Trudeau in the dismantling of the Freedom Convoy, but industry executives say they were not very effective.

The CEO of Newton Crypto Ltd. teed off on Trudeau’s committee, “I want to clear up misconceptions about the cryptocurrency industry.”

“Crypto trading platforms like Newton are not able to freeze or hold funds that are being held in private Bitcoin wallets off our platform,” Walper explained, “[Funds] cannot be arbitrarily frozen […] once they’re in the control of an individual.”

While Trudeau’s MPs were forced to sit and listen, Walper went on, saying that “The ability to hold and spend money, to buy groceries, pay rent, fill up your tank of gas, this is a basic precondition to one’s ability to operate freely in society. Our system of law exists to protect individuals from the overwhelming power of the state by imposing the burden of due process.”

To members of the Emergencies Act Review Committee, it was obvious what Walper was referring to: Trudeau’s extreme overreach and financial penalties on protesters.

“I would really urge the committee to think strongly about the kind of country you want Canada to be.”

Emergency Review Committee

Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act requires a committee review of the ordeal, which the Prime Minister has ensured will be a rubber-stamping affair after stacking the committee with friendly faces.

John Brassard, the Conservative House leader condemned the use of the Emergencies Act. Brassard said that it was “unjustifiable.” He added that the committee membership “weakened” accountability, as it is largely made up of Liberal and NDP proponents of Trudeau’s action.

“Justin Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act is unprecedented. He forced it through the House of Commons under threat of an election and is now trying to avoid accountability and avoid admitting he never needed the powers in the first place,” Brassard wrote.
