'Legal standard not met': Two court challenges filed over Trudeau's use of Emergencies Act

National Post: 'As police cordoned off downtown Ottawa as they prepare to clear a weeks-long occupation surrounding Parliament Hill, two separate legal challenges were filed against the federal government’s invocation of the Emergencies Act.


'Both the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) and Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) filed their challenges on Thursday, accusing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of setting a dangerous precedent by invoking the act for reasons they say fall far short of legal thresholds.


'“The government emergency declaration is unprecedented and seriously infringes the charter rights of Canadians,” said CCLA Executive Director Noa Mendelsohn Aviv in a Thursday afternoon press conference.'
