On November 25, 2022, the final day of the Emergencies Act inquiry, Justin Trudeau took the stand.
The Canadian Prime Minister had to answer for his use of the Emergencies Act, which use is reserved for national emergencies such as war, on the Trucker Convoy peaceful protests that happened in Ottawa in February 2022.
Trudeau addressed allegations the Emergencies Act was invoked for a political purpose. “My motivation was entirely about ensuring the safety of Canadians,” he said.
He also admitted to not reading a nearly fully redacted police planning document that he said “wasn’t much of a plan” 10 seconds earlier.
