The Emergencies Act Inquiry

The Emergencies Act Inquiry

Was the Emergencies Act required?

Posted on November 7, 2022

The Emergencies Act Inquiry, which probes whether the federal government was able to utilize such powers to bring the Ottawa occupation to an end, has been running for about three weeks now with plenty more testimony to come.

From this vantage point the one thing that is very clear is that no level of government was competent in ending the occupation until the Act was finally implemented. A municipal government that was led by a questionable police force, a provincial government that sat on its hands and continues to do so. And a federal government with a front row view of the occupation that paralyzed the city for more than three weeks.

Through it all, the residents of Ottawa were tormented by the hundreds of truckers and thousands of protesters who initially came to demonstrate against vaccine mandates.

It's clear that the Ottawa Police were not up to the task and the OPP dragged their feet. Whether intentionally or not we will eventually find out. Ford may have dodged a bullet by not having to testify, but we'll find out eventually what roll he played in delaying the OPPs response, if any.
