Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken the unprecedented step of invoking the Emergencies Act in his ongoing battle against the Freedom Convoy truckers (and freedom, in general), and has officially moved to FREEZE the bank accounts of participating protesters.
And, as you may know, the police have now moved in, and are in the middle of an operation to disperse the protest!
This kind of authoritarian action cannot stand, and the Senate is slated to vote TODAY on whether Trudeau's order can remain in effect.
Can we count on you to urgently contact your federal legislators -- both in the Senate and House of Commons -- and implore them to reject Trudeau's triggering of the Emergencies Act and dangerous slide towards tyranny?
Trudeau is now using tyrannical, authoritarian-style tactics to silence dissenters, and mercilessly attack the Charter rights of Canadians who are using their freedom of expression to protest his unjust war against citizens' medical autonomy.
These dramatic development calls for IMMEDIATE action -- the Senate is slated vote on Trudeau's invocation of the Emergencies Act TODAY -- which is why we're now asking you to do your part NOW by participating in this critical campaign to lawmakers!

In his latest move against the Freedom Convoy truckers, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau officially announced his intention to invoke the Emergencies Act (EA) for the first time in Canadian history on Tuesday.
The EA, which replaced the War Measures Act in 1988, permits the federal government to take "special temporary measures to ensure safety and security during national emergencies," which the law defines as "an urgent and critical situation of a temporary nature" that either "seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it" or "seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of Canada."
But, of course, the truckers' nationwide protests have not in any sense risen to such a level that anyone's life or safety have been endangered.
Trudeau's politically-motivated use of the EA is nothing more than an effort to violate the rights of protesters, and, for all intents and purposes, impose "martial law" as a means to quash the civil liberties of people he sees as political opposition, but who are, in reality, just normal, freedom-loving Canadians who want their freedoms back.
Indeed, Trudeau has now resorted to police-state tactics.
And, another disturbing aspect of Trudeau's action is that he has given Canada's banks the power to freeze anyone's accounts without a court order.
In Tuesday's announcement, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland confirmed that "a bank or other financial service provider will be able to immediately freeze or suspend an account without a court order, in doing so, they will be protected against civil liability for actions taken in good faith.”
So, first the police move in, and then financial institutions revoke your banking privileges. Yet further attempts to stifle peaceful, democratic protest.
But not all hope is lost...
While Trudeau has invoked the Emergencies Act, he must still win approval from both the House of Commons and the Senate within seven days of doing so in order for the 30-day order to take full effect.
However, if lawmakers disapprove of Trudeau's decision, the order will be rescinded!
Which is why we need you -- whether you support the truckers or not, whether you're vaccinated or not -- to take action NOW to show your own disapproval and rejection of Trudeau's embrace of authoritarianism.
So please, send your Senators and MPs an urgent message as soon as possible about the importance of protecting and defending ALL Canadians against this appalling abuse of power.
If we fail to stand up to a government that's descending into dictatorship now, it could be any one of us who's targeted by a future EA, and things could only get worse...
Our rights are on the line like never before, and it's time to let our lawmakers know -- TODAY (FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH) -- that Canadians have had enough of Trudeau's tyranny!
