Liberal senator says movement to stop Trudeau’s Emergencies Act was underway

Marilou McPhedran, a Trudeau-appointed senator, says there was a growing movement within government, including Liberals, to stop Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act.

“Just to point out that the day on which the declaration was ended by the government, there was already a movement among a significant number of senators and MPs, including some Liberals, to come up with the requisite signatures to begin the process of ending the declaration, and we didn’t end up having to do that,” McPhedran said.

She continues, saying that Trudeau caught wind of the plan and ended it himself.

“The government was well aware that we were fairly far along in creating that joint letter that was required under this particular section, and instead, there was the decision just to suspend.”

She concluded her discussion by calling for educational reform so that Canadians become more aware of their Charter Rights and Freedoms.

“And so, leaving here today, well, I’m hoping that where we have consensus is the need not only for awareness-raising but actually for much deeper, stronger civics education, charter-based education, not only in our schools, not only in our higher education institutions but throughout our society. Because if we don’t know our rights, we cannot live our rights,” McPhedran said.

Many previously speculated that Trudeau’s abrupt ending of his self-granted powers was due to the Senate potentially voting it down, which could have had disastrous political ramifications — and now Canadians know it’s true.

As reported by The Counter Signal, nearly all narratives surrounding the supposed threat the Freedom Convoy posed have been debunked. For example, FINTRAC has stated that the Convoy never posed a risk of extremism or that there was suspicious funding and the Ottawa interim police chief admitted that there were no weapons charges related to the Convoy.

Overall, it’s clear that there was little if any justification for invoking the Emergencies Act and many in government felt that way.
