Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland had the unmitigated gall to describe the Emergencies [War Measures] Act as a "non-violent incentive," that "peacefully" resolved the Freedom Convoy protests..That was an incredible claim to make given the stark reality..Tell that to the Mohawk woman who was trampled by a police horse while she stood with the aid of a walker. Candice Soro told me she broke her collar bone in the incident. I spoke to her during a break in the Thursday Emergencies [War Measures] Act Inquiry. She told me she's still in pain because of the attack..There was nothing peaceful about it..Tell the Freedom Convoy supporters and journalists who were injured after police were authorized to use excessive force that the Emergencies [War Measures] Act was an act of peace and love..Freeland sailed through most of her morning testimony as she artfully played the concerned minister. But it rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way. The finance minister may be diminutive in stature, but she possesses a towering arrogance that is unsettling. She lectures and talks down to everybody, even her own lawyers, carefully enunciating key words as if other people are not sufficiently intelligent to comprehend her complex speech..The finance minister tried to avoid talking about the invocation of the Emergencies [War Measures] Act, preferring to hold forth about Russia's invasion of Ukraine and to brag about how inspired was her April federal budget..She claimed she supported the Emergencies [War Measures] Act because it "saved Canada" from those dreadful truckers. Freeland said her job was to provide Canadians with a "good life" as she momentarily choked up, doing her best to show some emotion..Freeland actually described the convoy protests in the language of combat, claiming the Liberal government was operating under the "fog of war." The finance minister tried to continue to control the questioning when Freedom Convoy lawyer Brendan Miller took the stand but he was having none of it. He interrupted Freeland at one point and told her to "stop trying to run down the clock.".That really bothered Freeland..Miller asked the minister if it would be "really bad" for the government if it could be proven that one of its own photographers took the picture of someone carrying a Nazi flag early on in the convoy protest..Freeland refused to answer that one..But there is growing evidence the flag bearer had no connection to the Freedom Convoy, was in fact a plant and that an official government photographer took the picture of said individual..Freeland of course, was the minister who infamously froze the bank accounts of Freedom Convoy supporters. She addressed that notorious decision by saying it somehow saved Canadian jobs and once again "peacefully" convinced protesters "to go home.".Uh huh. Nothing about how it was a malicious act to punish and intimidate people who don't share Liberal Party values or ideology..Freeland expressed interest in being the next secretary general of NATO. As far as Canada is concerned, her dubious leadership skills would be better served overseas, rather than here at home.
