Trucker protests: PM Trudeau, ministers give update ahead of vote on Emergencies Act | LIVE

1 min read

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland and other federal ministers are expected to speak ​on Monday​, hours ahead of the planned vote on the decision to invoke the Emergencies Act.

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said Sunday that designating no-go zones within Canada’s capital, ensuring tow trucks were available to remove vehicles from city streets​, as well as stopping the flow of money and goods to demonstrators were clear ways the act helped end the Ottawa blockades.

Conservatives, however, are critical of the government move with some pushing the Liberals to revoke the act now that the blockades appear to be over.

The vote on the act is expected to pass when MPs vote at approximately 8 p.m. ET, with the NDP voicing its support for the act. The Conservatives and Bloc Québecois have said they would vote against the motion. If the motion fails, however, the act and all powers stemming from it would be torn up. If it passes, they will remain in place until mid-March at the latest.
