Canadian Emergency Act Bodes Ill for Canadian Gun Owners (update, Trudeau blinks!)

Canada Prime Minister
Canadian Prime Minister and outspoken anti-gunner Justin Trudeau.

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)-– Canada is becoming a police state. The Canadian House of Commons has abdicated its responsibilities. This has a significant effect on Canadian gun owners.

The Emergency Act allows the Trudeau administration to punish people for things they legally did months or years ago, particularly political contributions. No Court order is required.

The Emergency Act invoked by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is limited by law in several ways. One of those is a requirement that both houses of Parliament consider the Act within seven “sitting” days, continually debate the act, and then vote on it.

The Emergency Measure (the Act is the law, the measure is what Trudeau proclaimed, using the Act) was proclaimed on 14 February 2022. It has already been approved by the House of Commons, in a vote of 151 to 185. The Conservatives and Bloc Québécois opposed the Act. The Liberals and New Democrat parties (both far left) approved of it.

The Canadian Senate was designed to be a check on the power of the popular vote in the House of Commons. It has not worked out that way. The Senate has become a rubber stamp for the House of Commons.

The Senate has real power. It has chosen not to use it. It could exercise its power by voting against the Emergency Act. The Senate is required to take up the measure on the first “sitting day” following when the motion is laid before the Senate. It is to debate the measure continuously until it is ready for a vote. Then the vote must be taken.

If the vote is negative the Emergency Measure is revoked the day of the vote.

Canadian Senate sitting days Calendar.

The Canadian Senate calendar shows it has sitting days on February 21, 22, 23, and 24, with possible sitting days of February 25 and 28. In March there are shown sitting days of March 1, 2, and 3.

If the Calendar holds, the Canadian Senate must vote on the Emergency Measure reasonably soon.

This correspondent hopes the Canadian Senate shows a spine and votes to end the Emergency Measure, which does not come close to meeting the required provisions for its use. It seems unlikely the Senate will do so.

The Justin Trudeau administration has ruled in Canada for two years. The Canadian Parliament has voluntarily given up its power, with the excuse of COVID19. The House of Commons has voted to extend the Emergency Measure, which grants dictatorial powers to Justin Trudeau for at least 30 days. Experience shows totalitarian rulers seldom give up power voluntarily.

The Trudeau administration, by executive order, ruled many Canadian guns are contraband. This was done in early 2020. Canadian gun owners have been uncertain of what they may, or may not do. It is a signature of dictators that the rule of law does not apply.

The deadline to turn in the banned guns is April 30th, 2022. If the Emergency Measure is still in place at that time, the Trudeau administration will have all the power it needs to confiscate guns from Canadians, without compensation.

In December of 2021, Trudeau supported a ban on all handguns in Canada. Under the Emergency Measure, the Trudeau administration could require all legally owned handguns in Canada be turned in to the government. All legal handguns in Canada are registered with the government.

Under the Emergency Measure, no compensation is necessary. Canadian bank accounts can be frozen without any court order, for any reason. Canadians are liable to have their lives and livelihood destroyed for things they did legally months or years ago.

While talking to a dual Canadian and a United States citizen in the last few days, this correspondent heard real fear in their voice. They had removed all of their assets from Canadian banks. They still owned real estate in Canada. In totalitarian regimes, real estate is significantly devalued, because the property is no longer secured by the rule of law.

This correspondent has a dismal prediction: The Emergency Measure will not end any time soon. The Measure will be used to destroy any political opposition in Canada. Canada faces a bleak future.

Update: The Canadian Senate started debating the Emergency Measure on February 22. The debate continued into February 23. Thank God this correspondent was wrong. PM Trudeau faced defeat in the Senate with a possible vote of no confidence following. Trudeau blinked and canceled the Emergency measure as the Senate continued debate. With the cancellation of the Emergency measure, the Senate immediately adjourned. The Senate voted to adjourn and adjourned at 2 p.m. on Thursday, February 23, 2022.

This is a historic day in Canada.

The “emergency act / martial law” was ENDED??? Only by word! Actions of Truedope’s REGIME —- PROVE the “act / law” IS STILL in EFFECT!!!

Jim

Wake up canada

Happy Everafter

I thought it was woke….

Vince

When Trudeau completely disarms Canada, we should take over. There is a population of only 38 million and after Trudeau it would be like a constant party among friends.

john

Wow a plan of action there is more two it than that LOL

TexDad

The vote of no confidence should have still happened. To any on the Left misusing the word fascist on a consistent basis, take a hard look at who the real authoritarians are nowadays.

There is grandmother’s in Ukraine building molotov cocktails that have bigger balls than Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden combined ! These clowns are both spineless tyrants . They both need a helicopter ride to 10,000 feet and thrown out to see who hits the ground first . Americans and Canadians can share a victory cocktail for the winner .

Why stop with these two ? I say clean house & start over.

I heard them as the five stages of defeat. Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Depression and surrender. However YOU are absolutely correct!

Here we are again. Last 5 posts have been the 2 gruesome twins………I think they like themselves. Too bad they can’t suck anyone else into thier brand of schizo keyboard junkies.

Henry Bowman

This was the schoolyard equivalent of tag, with Trudeau declaring “no tag back” then retreating. Canadians must remember that the police service there, from local police to the RCMP, fully embraced the role of ‘Jack Booted Thugs’ (JBT’s). Once Justin Castreau unleashed his JBTs on legit peaceful protesters and downtown Ottawa was cleared with massive brutality, the job was complete in his eyes and he relinquished the emergency powers – not to do the right thing, but because he abused the power – and the whole world was starting to condemn him as a totalitarian dictator. Lucky for him, Putin… Read more »

I have been preaching the aftermath of what happened in Europe and Asia after they gave up their guns last century for decades. Thank you for saying that I just hope more listen to you then have listened to me. Even through it is quite easy to research and discover it is true.

john

The fact is Justin Trudeau got away with his actions against those who protested peacefully against his administration. He is a fraud who hid from his countrymen and women. Fear & Paranoia run through his progressive communist veins.

Oldman

/No differwent than Joe Bidette, right?

JSNMGC

It’s a matter of degree, isn’t it? The Canadian politicians worked with the Canadian enforcers to do what they did. In the United States, politicians/enforcers: Persecuted a man who refused to spy for them and then ordered hundreds of people (enforcers, supported by the military), to “enforce the law” – they followed orders and in the process killed his wife and son. “Enforced the law” regarding NFA items and, again, using massive force, including armored vehicles provided by the military, killed dozens of people. Disarmed innocent people in the middle of a natural disaster (the very time the people needed… Read more »

That is socialism at its core progressivism is communism at its core soon marxism and they never saw it coming . Justin Trudeau is a young man that appeals to the brain dead left wing adolescence 35 something living in mom’s and dad’s basement Simple when he does not provide for that demographic they will piss on him .

He is so furious with me that he can not form a response to anything else.

JSNMGC

What?

I’m calm.

What do you have to do with my comment to Dean’s article?

You are obsessing.

Wild Bill

What do you have to do with my comment to John?

You are depressing

JSNMGC

Was I not the subject in your sentence?

If so, that is what I have to do with your comment to John.

Wild Bill

Naaaa, the subject of my sentence was “You”. How arrogant for you to assume that you are the antecedent.
I just wanted to say something nice to John because I like him. Don’t you have anything else to do besides eavesdrop?

JSNMGC

The subject in your sentence was “he” and you were commenting on john’s response to me. Was “he” not me?

Wild Bill

Oh, that sentence. I though the other one. You, jsnmgc, should be more specific.

Girls, please!

JSNMGC

Another one.

Get out the popcorn and beer – the mud wrestling has started!

Oldman – 2/28/22:

“Take it elsewhere PUNK! That is if you can find anyone to listen to your garbage in-garbage out.”

Response to Oldman:

No.

Would you have arrested me way back when you had a badge and a radio?

Russn8r

You’re the punk, punk.

Russn8r

Beat it, punk.

Wild Bill

OMG, could this be the only site that he has not been kicked off? Is that why it returns?

Russn8r

Says the sad sack fake military genius rancher who lives to troll here.

Oldman

After today, I think it is more like depressed. Probably couldn’t get any crack today. And I mean smoking crack, not the other kind. I doubt he gets any of that, ever.

JSNMGC

“After today, I think it is more like depressed. Probably couldn’t get any crack today. And I mean smoking crack, not the other kind. I doubt he gets any of that, ever.” ~ Oldman

More civilized conversation from Oldman.

Regarding the article, do you see much difference in what enforcers in Canada did versus what they have done in the U.S.?

Jesse/Will/”TEX” – 2/28/22:

“Dean will not respond to anyone who refers to the police as enforcers. That’s a non-existent term used only by scum to degrade LE.”

Response to Jesse/Will/”TEX:”

You indicated previously that the term “enforcers” was not a degrading term.

Regarding the article, do you see much difference in what enforcers in Canada did versus what they have done in the U.S.?

Wild Bill

The “…enforcers in Canada…” they did not do anything in the U.S. Look at that pronoun error. Sixth grade English teachers all over the country are rolling in laughter.

Russn8r

Quibbling again.

Wild Bill

No, just marveling at the poor writing skills.

Russn8r

Sorry. Didn’t go to Hemline U. LOL. Get lost, Quibbler. You stink this place up with your trolling.

Wild Bill

You forgot UVA.

JSNMGC

Here you go:

“versus what enforcers have done in the U.S.?”

Regarding the topic, do you see any similarities in the actions of of the two groups?

Wild Bill

I’m thinking that sentence fragment lacks a subject and a verb.

JSNMGC

“I’m thinking that sentence fragment lacks a subject and a verb.” ~ Wild Bill

I changed the part you found confusing. I thought you could follow. Here you go:

Regarding the article, do you see much difference in what enforcers in Canada did versus what enforcers have done in the U.S.?

Wild Bill

Yes, some of those people were Canadian, and some were American.

JSNMGC

“Yes, some of those people were Canadian, and some were American.” ~ Wild Bill

You, see – we agree on something. That’s about the extent of the difference I see as well.

Wild Bill

Hhhaaaaa, haaaa. “Much incurable yer garboils.” Sovereignty. You forgot sovereignty.

No, he agreed with me. Perhaps you should look up quibble in the dictionary.

You low-life quibbling coward sock pups should get a room & stop stroking each other in public. Oh yeah. You’re sock pups. Never mind.

I bet you know quite a bit about low life and prevarication.

From watching you & your sock pups make pork strokinoff.

Jesse/Will/”TEX” – 2/28/22:

“WB,these two SOB’s sure are tough behind them computers ain’t they? Just cowards,low life!”

Response to Jesse/Will/”TEX:”

You are the one who described how you would give two months’ pay to be an enforcer again so you could attempt to escalate a simple traffic stop into murdering me and then lie about what happened in an effort to not be prosecuted.

I haven’t threatened you at all. I encourage you to keep posting. It’s entertaining.

Wild Bill

That is no threat that is hyperbole in the subjective mood.

Wild Bill

Yep, no consequences to them for being brusque, here.

Russn8r

More projection from The Quibbler.

Jesse/Will/”TEX” – 2/28/22

“WB,maybe we can change that!”

Response to Jesse/Will/”TEX:”

Well, now that’s interesting. Go on . . .

As I recall, you ended up under an oxygen tent by just flying to Denver and attending a meeting.

Don’t you think the days of talking like that ended 30 years ago?

Wild Bill

I am sure that you are confusing commenters and misinterpreting the verbiage. Just exactly what do you think this one meant?

Correction. Canada IS a dictatorship police country. Traggoo already implemented laws to make almost everything semi auto illegal as you pointed out. He already kicked out, arrested, jailed, stole funds, beat up, kneed and trampled with horses the people of HIS country including removal of equipment and removed insurance so they could not legally operate in HIS country. The act has been taken and it is all past tense therefore it IS a police country and Traggoo IS the dictator that implemented it. Dean, I think saying it is becoming a police state falls short of the situation. I think… Read more »

Romanian Term Limits are a proven remedy to tyranny.

Brother, I surely hope that you are not at home when the Secret Service comes to call.

Henry Bowman

I did not make a call to action, did not specify a who, or a where/when/why. Only a historical observation. Ergo, no crime.

…AND…if you’re one of those peace at any cost types, you can bugger off now.
