Prime Minister Justin Trudeau granted his government emergency powers on Monday to crush the Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa and across Canada.
By invoking the Canada Emergencies Act for the first time ever, Trudeau gave his government carte blanche to use every available method possible to stop the “terrorist” Freedom Convoy, including calling upon banks to freeze and seize their finances without a court order.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland announced that these new emergency powers will include expanding “Terrorist Financing” rules to target crowdfunding efforts that have been supporting the Freedom Convoy.
“First we are broadening the scope of Canada’s anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules so they include crowdfunding platforms and the payment service providers they use,” Freeland said during Trudeau’s presser.
