As Twitchy reported earlier, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was to make an announcement Monday afternoon, and it was to invoke the Emergencies Act to give himself tools to use against the trucker protest that’s overtaken Ottawa (even though he said it was just a “small, fringe minority” with “unacceptable views.”

Trudeau said the action was about “keeping Canadian citizens safe” and, ironically, “restoring confidence in our constitution.”

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland let it know the government was going after the truckers’ funding and said that banks can now freeze the assets of funds they believe are going to the “illegal blockade” and be protected against civil liability to boot.

Trudeau is backed into a corner with no other options — except to maybe talk to the truckers and end the mandates.
