Wow! LMFAO….So the Canadian police were giving testimony for probable cause to freeze the bank accounts of multiple convoy truckers(some single mothers) based on information that they claimed they heard on the news! Third hand! Then that same media source would turn around and claim that they heard it from the cops!
The attorney general’s reason for freezing bank accounts was based on an affidavit by a police officer who based his testimony on what he read in the news, Wilson said, adding that courts don’t rely on third-party hearsay. “It’s that ridiculous. We ran into this problem of circularity all the time, of media saying something, police then saying, well the news is saying it, then the media saying, well the police said it.”https://farmersforum.com/truckers-were-right-freedom-convoy-protest-was-legal-judge-says-and-ottawa-is-now-being-sued/
These are the kinds of people we are dealing with here. They can’t even competently commit tyrannical and corrupt acts. That’s like the easiest thing ever to pull off when your the one in charge but it requires an IQ above 100 which most cops don’t have.
Things haven’t been going so well for Trudeau of late. He was just recently absolutely humiliated by EU Parliament members and now he’s about to get his ass handed to him in court over the “Freedom Convoy” fiasco and his continued childish dictatorial defiance of the most basic of human and constitutional rights.
We know that these “Freedom Convoys” appear to be some kind of controlled opposition movement, but either way, the manner in which the Canadian government absolutely freaked the fuck out and began to recklessly trample over the rights of so many Canadian citizens without a shred of regard for the law or any kind of ethical foundry to speak of, constitutes a criminal act and the officials in charge who allowed for these illegal oversteps of executive power to take place need to be rounded up and tried by a jury of their peers. Something like that.
I really cannot get over just how bad things are in Canada and Australia still. Thankfully things are finally settling down here in the U.S. and most everyone has backed off, but in Canada the unvaccinated can’t leave the country or even use public transportation(busses, cars, ships and planes) right now. How can that still be happening anywhere? That’s just batshit crazy to me. Both that the officials would try to continue to get away with it and that the people haven’t taken matters into their own hands to remedy the situation by now. And why aren’t more lawyers stepping in to help out like this guy? C’mon guys and girls. Everyone has a strength of some kind and we need people to start stepping up and lending whatever talents they possess to contribute to helping us to overcome these fuckheads.
TRUCKERS WERE RIGHT: Freedom Convoy protest was legal, judge says, and Ottawa is now being sued

MONTREAL — The Canadian government trampled on fundamental human rights with its COVID restrictions, then overreached on dealing with the Freedom Convoy and must now answer to numerous lawsuits, including one by a former premier, says a well-respected constitutional lawyer.
Speaking on Montreal lawyer Viva Frei’s Youtube channel on March 25, Keith Wilson noted that the mischief charges against his client and convoy leader Tamara Lich, will not be successful. She counselled truckers to move in order to comply with police demands, not to block emergency lanes, he said.
Wilson is also a lawyer for former Newfoundland Premier Brian Peckford, who is suing the federal government for breaching the charter of rights by preventing unvaccinated people from leaving the country or getting on a bus, train or ship.
“Obviously we are going to be able to establish Charter breaches,” Wilson said, adding that the government restricted mobility, security of the person and freedom of conscience.”
Wilson said he would not be able to live with himself if he hadn’t helped the Freedom Convoy when he got the call for help from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms on Feb. 1.
“I have been so concerned about the direction of our country,” he said. “I have been so fundamentally concerned about the trampling of civil liberties and the lost of rights and the overreacting to COVID. I have been so concerned about the future for my children, deeply, deeply concerned, and was inspired by what the truckers were doing.”
Wilson also clarified that the Freedom Convoy protest was not illegal at any point, even though Prime Minister Trudeau called it illegal, and big media went along with it.
In fact, an Ontario supreme court judge sided with the convoy. When an injunction against honking horns was declared, the court also stated that “provided the terms of this Order are complied with, the defendents and other persons remain at liberty to engage in a peaceful, lawful and safe protest.”
Reality on the ground was often not being reported. While Ottawa police often announced they had made a number of arrests during the Freedom Convoy protests, they never mentioned that many incidents were called in by truckers after people slit their tires or cut gas lines, Wilson said. Police also negotiated with truckers as to which streets they would be allowed to block during the protest. When things heated up, the police blocked off Laurier Avenue to prevent east-west traffic flow even though there was not one truck or protest vehicle on that street.
The attorney general’s reason for freezing bank accounts was based on an affidavit by a police officer who based his testimony on what he read in the news, Wilson said, adding that courts don’t rely on third-party hearsay. “It’s that ridiculous. We ran into this problem of circularity all the time, of media saying something, police then saying, well the news is saying it, then the media saying, well the police said it.”
Wilson is already seeing some early confirmation that the truckers and their supporters have been slandered. Barry MacKillop, deputy-director of FINTRAC, the federal organization that goes after terrorism funds and criminal money-laundering, told the Commons finance committee that there was not a shred of illegal activity associated with the trucker convoy.
Said MacKillop: “There were people around the world who were fed up with COVID and were upset and saw the demonstrations. I believe they just wanted to support the cause. It was their own money. It wasn’t money that funded terrorism or was in any way money laundering.”
Wilson said that there was nothing to justify using the Federal Emergencies Act. “This is government writing a blank cheque over your rights and your life… this was a retaliatory measure by an authoritarian petulant child prime minster lashing out.”
