Freedom Corp Counsel says the required criteria were not met for the Trudeau Liberals to invoke the never-before-used powers granted under the Emergencies Act.

The private Alberta-based corporation, which seeks to educate Canadians about their Charter-rights and pursue legal action where necessary, made the revelation during opening remarks at the Emergencies Act Inquiry on Thursday.

“There was no justification whatsoever to invoke the Emergencies Act,” said Brandon Miller, a constitutional lawyer who represents Freedom Corp.

“The Emergencies Act requires several things. One, it could be invoked due to espionage and sabotage. Are you going to hear any evidence about espionage and sabotage? The answer to that is ‘no,'” Miller said.  

“Two, it could be invoked on the basis of clandestine or deceptive foreign influence. A foreign influence that involves the threat to a person. Are you going to hear evidence about that? The answer to that is ‘no.'”

“It also could be invoked on the basis of threats or use of acts of serious violence against persons or property. Are you going to hear evidence of violence against persons or property? The answer is ‘no,'” Miller continued.

The prime minister invoked the law in February for the first time in Canadian history.

It allowed the government to freeze the bank accounts of anyone associated with the protest and even gave the RCMP powers to crack down on crypto wallets, as exclusively reported by The Counter Signal

Trudeau and his Liberal ministers, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra, Justice Minister David Lametti and Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino, are included in a list of 65 witnesses to testify before the Commission.

Miller’s statement contrasted that of a lawyer representing Ottawa residents and businesses. Paul Champ argued that Ottawa residents are still traumatized, bewildered and upset from the protests.

“It’s going to take a while for this city to heal internally,” he said.
