For the week of Feb. 19, 2023:
The former Liberal Party insider who sat as a one-man commission decided Justin Trudeau was correct in declaring a national emergency over last year’s trucker convoy blockades.
When Paul Rouleau handed down his Public Order Emergency Commission report on Feb. 17, he acknowledged there were many Canadians exercising their free speech rights to disagree with how governments handled the pandemic, but a small number was intent on causing others harm. Oddly, Rouleau conceded the factual basis for his decision was not overwhelming and “reasonable and informed people could reach a different conclusion than the one I have arrived at.”
On the same day, Canadians woke up to a Globe and Mail front page blockbuster. A leaked report from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service said Communist China had meddled in the 2021 federal election, in favour of a Liberal minority government. It even said then-Consul General Tong Xiaoling boasted of helping defeat Conservative incumbents Kenny Chiu and Alice Wong in Richmond, in favour of Liberal rookies Parm Bains and Wilson Miao.
“This foreign, authoritarian government wanted to see Justin Trudeau as prime minister, because they knew that he would work for their interest, rather than Canada’s interest,” said Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre. “That’s why he has covered up this information for so long.”
