Democracy Not Lost Taken Away?

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked emergency powers to stop truckers blocking traffic in Ottawa.

These powers will be used to restrict public gatherings attempting to end protests in the city and near the United States / Canadian border. (Washington Journal)

This move against protestors, who oppose heavy and continuing Canadian restrictions, is shocking to say the least.

In addition to restricting gatherings the Prime Minister is targeting financial holdings and transactions of crowdfunding organizations like Go Fund Me.

These measures are unprecedented considering laws already exist concerning protests. They should be handled by local law enforcement response, not dealt with by a tyrannical stroke of a pen from the highest seat in government.

Make no mistake. This is a Tyrannical act.
