Trudeau Revokes Emergency Powers Act


And here, he says he’s ‘confident that existing laws and bylaws are now sufficient to keep people safe.’

Two days after Canadian lawmakers voted to extend emergency powers allowing police to quell potential unrest, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now set to revoke them now that the Ottawa protest is over, according to the Canadian Press, citing two senior government sources.

Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time last week, saying police required additional support to end blockades.
