Trudeau Reportedly Set to Remove Emergency Powers Police Can Invoke Under Emergencies Act
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to revoke use of the Emergencies Act, according to two senior government sources, now that the protest in downtown Ottawa is over.
Trudeau is expected to provide more details during an announcement at 4 p.m. EST. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
A motion confirming the time-limited powers granted under act passed the House of Commons Monday (Feb. 21) evening, but a separate motion on the act is still being debated by the Senate.
