Public Safety Minister stands by disproven lie that law enforcement recommended tyrannical overreach
Globe & Mail: 'Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said Thursday that he stands by previous statements that the federal government invoked the Emergencies Act on the recommendation of law enforcement officials.
'Mr. Mendicino has faced questions in recent days from Conservative MPs over which police force asked for the invocation of the never-before-used legislation after both interim Ottawa Police Chief Steve Bell and RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki told parliamentary committees that their forces did not specifically request the invocation of the legislation.
'The act was first invoked on Feb. 14, when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described taking the unprecedented step as a last resort to bring an end to a prolonged trucker demonstration in downtown Ottawa and blockades in Alberta, Manitoba and B.C. It was in place for 10 days.'
Mendicino is clearly a liar.
