Justin Trudeau, under oath:
“I did not call people who were unvaccinated [bad] names.”
“If there was ever a time for a prime minister to step down, now is that time.”
In her closing statement to the Public Order Emergency Commission, Convoy lawyer Eva Chipiuk calls for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to resign.
“I did not call people who were unvaccinated names.”
PM Trudeau denies calling unvaccinated Canadians names.
In a September 2021 interview, Trudeau referred to unvaccinated Canadians as extremists, misogynists and racists.
Justin Trudeau told the Commission to read this plan in his earlier testimony. It’s fully redacted.
Watch him smirk while waiting for the objection when asked if he would release the information in the interest of transparency:
You are right Mr. @justintrudeau, you would never call unvaccinated names, right?
This is just one of the multiple instances where you ”didn’t” call unvaccinated Canadians names!
On Black Friday Crime Minister @JustinTrudeau
testified at the Emergencies Act Public Inquiry. We held the line for freedom in front of the #POEC venue in Ottawa. He needs to be held accountable for invoking the War Measures Act against peaceful protesters. #TrudeauMustGo https://t.co/zGYfHQNB6C
Trudeau’s story so far: the cops didn’t act and things were getting worse, not better. So I invoked the Emergencies Act and I’m fine with it #ottnews #ottawa #POEC #onpoli #cdnpoli
“There was a sense that this was a broadly spread thing, and the fact that there was not yet any serious violence that had been noted was obviously a good thing, but we could not say that there was no potential for threats of serious violence.”
So... it was peaceful then?
On Friday, @JustinTrudeau
gave the performance he needed to for his government and party.
He didn’t put forward a convincing argument that he was justified in invoking the Emergencies Act though which is what the inquiry is about. Read & RT #cdnpoli #poec https://t.co/Q23WTjjJyW
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked why he didn't personally engage with the illegal occupiers:
Long answer on how their message was known and their grievances were not a mystery.
"they didn't just want to be heard, they wanted to be obeyed."
There is no doubt in my mind that there was no legal basis for invoking the Emergencies Act. We knew this beforehand.
Trudeau deployed it because he is a tyrant and he knew momentum was growing with each passing hour.
Jagmeet and the NDP are also a national disgrace.
Trudeau is spreading misinformation live at the #POEC
Trudeau lying under oath.
Have I missed any?

Why is Trudeau answering questions in French when he’s being asked the questions in English? #POEC #EmergenciesActInquiry #FreedomConvoy
According to GoC database, 80 percent of Canadians have not received a booster in the past six months.
That's a lot of "vaccine hesitant," Mr PM. Or are the 80 percent now racists and misogynists?
It escapes me how any rational observer could conclude this past week was anything but a thorough success for the government. Not in the sense of 'we won'. No one wins. But the immense jeopardy that each minister, the PM and the PMO faced was averted entirely. #POEC
Today's admission by @CanadianPM @JustinTrudeau @POECommission
confirms that the threshold before civil liberties can be severely restricted in the name of public order is a high one. We maintain that the threshold was not met.
#EmergenciesActInquiry #POEC #cdnpoli
I, for one, supported the .@CanadianPM
invoking the #EmergenciesAct. After 6 weeks of testimony it is my conclusion the threshold was met and #TrudeauWasRight to invoke the Act.

One of the sure tells of how profoundly capable the govt's management has been is the deafening silence from the Official Opposition. Once champions of the convoy, they are now wisely unseen. Not a word of quarrel or quibble. Poilievre smartly swallowed his whistle all week #POEC
"I did not call people who are unvaccinated names."
- Justin Trudeau
Watch this video. He did.
The political right & malign actors, including adversaries like 🇷🇺& 🇨🇳, used public health measures as a means to sow toxicdisinformation & weaponize the public via social media manipulation in order to destabilize democracies. This was not a “protest”. #EmergencyActInquiry #POEC
The majority of truckers were vaccinated and working, across the border. The Ottawa truckers was only a small, vocal minority joined by nazis, haters of govt, and conservative party leader @PIerrePoilievre supported them. These are facts. #POEC https://t.co/r9VFMRyrjF
One other issue I had with the #POEC was the amount of #FreedomConvoy participants in the inquiry room wearing “Fuck Trudeau” t-shirts. Commissioner #Rouleau should’ve had them booted out. That’s not acceptable attire for any courtroom or inquiry. 🪶😡🇨🇦
Repeat after me #cdnmedia “It was never a legal protest. It was an illegal occupation and failed insurrection.” You’re welcome. 🪶😡🙄🇨🇦 #TrudeauWasRight #POEC #cdnpoli https://t.co/nb6UPR0JPx
Look at CPC messaging during the "Freedom Convoy" Ambassador Bridge blockade 👇. 1st day Bergen wants to meet w/ Trudeau to "de-escalate" protests. But CPC MPs are tweeting "Keep going" & "Don't stop the momentum" through the week. #POEC #EmergenciesActInquiry https://t.co/YgcB87Ll9F
