JUSTICE IS COMING FOR JUSTIN: Premier of Alberta Suing Trudeau for Use of Emergencies Act

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.21.22

During an interview with the Edmonton Sun, Premier of the Canadian Province of Alberta, Jason Kenney, announced he will sue PM Trudeau and the federal government for using the Emergencies Act without threat of an insurrection or coup.

“The situation in Ottawa is serious. Law and order has to be restored,” said Kenney. “But the Emergencies Act was designed to come into effect at the failure of the state,” in the event of a coup or insurrection that threatened to topple Canada’s democratic institutions. “However, there is no insurrection or coup.”

“Police services already have all the powers they need through provincial authority. All the tools already exist” to clear the blockade and restore order, Kenney told the Edmonton Sun. The feds don’t need the power to “seize and freeze” people’s bank accounts and other assets.

According to the Sun, “The banking provisions of the Emergencies Act were, according to Kenney, ‘designed to interrupt terrorism financing’ to choke off the money supply of radical cells plotting attacks within Canada. Now, according to the premier, the Trudeau government is instead using those provisions to harass ‘people whose opinions they disagree with.’”

Kenney accuses Trudeau of “highly politicizing this from Day 1.”

First, “the feds provoked a bunch of truckers by mandating vaccines when they crossed the border.” At a time when most provincial governments were easing their pandemic restrictions, Trudeau decided to increase federal restrictions. “There was no defensible medical reason to require them to be vaccinated.”

Kenney shared news of the court challenge on Twitter:

Alberta will launch a Court challenge of the Trudeau government’s invocation of the Emergencies Act, because it is:

– unnecessary
– disproportionate
– violates natural justice
– intrudes into provincial jurisdiction
– creates a dangerous precedent.
