With Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoking Canada’s Emergency Act, the New York Times is reporting that heavy tow-truck drivers, who previously refused to tow-away semis away during the Freedom Convoy 2022 protests, may now face jail time if they refuse again.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Tow-truck operators, who have been reluctant to cooperate with the police, will also now be compelled to work with law enforcement agencies to clear Ottawa’s streets and the border crossings at Coutts, Alberta. If they don’t cooperate, they could face arrest,” The New York Times reported on Tuesday.
This is the first time in Canadian history that the country’s Prime Minister has ever invoked the Emergency Act.
However, Justin Trudeau’s father, then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, invoked the War Measures Act in the 1970s. It was the predecessor to the current Emergency Act.
