While the Federal Court rules it was unreasonable for the Trudeau government to implement the Emergencies Act two years ago, Ottawa’s already said it will appeal.

In his decision Justice Richard Mosley found invoking the Act ”does not bear the hallmarks of reasonableness –justification, transparency and intelligibility.”

”I conclude that there was no national emergency justifying” its invocation and that the decision to do so was ”therefore unreasonable.”

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland disagrees.

”We believed we were doing something necessary and something legal at the time. That continues to be my belief.”

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says his party reluctantly backed invocation of the Act.

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre doubled down on the government and Justin Trudeau.

”He caused the crisis by dividing people,” Poilievre posted on social media.

”Then he violated Charter rights to illegally suppress citizens.”
