The system fights back as Trudeau faces legal challenges
Toronto Sun: 'First, there was the announcement from the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) that they would be commencing an urgent application for judicial review at the Federal Court.
'“Trudeau has set a dangerous precedent by invoking the never before used federal Emergencies Act to address the current situation,” explained CCF litigation director Christine Van Geyn. “The high threshold for declaring a public order emergency in the Emergencies Act has not been met.”
'A similar announcement was made by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) on the same day. They’re also seeking a seeking review on the basis that the measures are unconstitutional. (And their website also crashed.)
'One other mechanism that’s underway is a potential investigation by the privacy commissioner. Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner has written to federal privacy commissioner Daniel Therrien to request he probe the various privacy implications of Trudeau’s decision.'
