Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement invoking the Emergencies Act to stop the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa has only inspired more resistance. According to David Paisley, one street protester organizer, Trudeau’s announcement gave more resolution to the demonstrators. “They’ve already been doing these ‘emergency powers’ and all it does is make people dig their heels in more, The irony … is that these very powers and threats are why we are here.” Paisley told the Daily Wire.
