An estimated 50,000 Canadian truckers traveled across Canada in a massive caravan protesting the COVID mandates. Canadian media tried to paint the protests as Russian propaganda.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unleashed his authoritarian leadership on Canadians who dared to push back against the government, including arresting two leaders of the Freedom Trucker convey protest in Ottawa.

Trudeau employed the Emergencies Act and utilized the near-limitless powers to terrorize and harass the grassroots trucker convoy protests.

While the Canadian Parliament initially  voted to uphold Trudeau’s unprecedented use of the Emergencies Act against the truckers, he was forced to revoke it days later, likely due to lack of support in the Senate.

The truckers lawyer,  Brendan Miller, is at it again and absolutely brutalized Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Freehand squirmed and grimaced during the grilling and had some questionable answers for Miller.

Miller:
Ok. Is Tamara Lich a terrorist?

Freeland:
It…in terms of designating who is a terrorist and who isn’t, that is is not my job as Minister of Finance or Deputy Prime Minister. We have authorities whose job is to do that.

Miller:
Right. And so it’s not your authority to designate Tamara Lich, Chris Barber, Tom Marazzo or Danny Bulford terrorists. That’s….somebody else has to do that.

Freeland:
Yes, we have…….we have Intelligence Services, we have enforcement agencies whose job is to determine who is a terrorist…and that’s entirely appropriate….can I say one thing about that…

Miller:
Yep…If I can bring up document SSM.CAM.00008764_rel.001 please…ok if we can scroll down to page…I believe….this is a note with Dave…what page? 12…page 12 please…this is a note I understand that you wrote with Dave from CSIS….and this is a meeting with Dave from CSIS…and if you scroll down…keep going….ok…and there you say you need to designate the group as terrorists…so…but it’s not your job, but you wanted to designate them as terrorists, right?

Freeland:
So that handwritten note in my notebook, I can assure you that was not a meeting with the Director of CSIS…with whom I didn’t have a meeting.

Miller:
It says…ok…it’s with David Vigneault from CSIS.

Freeland:
It doesn’t say that. It says it’s with a gentleman called Dave.

Miller:
Which Dave?

Freeland:
That meeting…that is not an account of a meeting with David Vigneault…because I didn’t have a meeting with the CSIS Director.

Miller:
Which Dave? Ma’am..which Dave is in those notes? What’s Dave’s last name?

Freeland:
I need to see my whole notebook that you are referring to….but I can tell you for certain..

Miller:
It only says Dave.

Freeland:
I can tell you for certain that I did not have a meeting during this time with the CSIS Director. I can exclude that 100%.

Miller:
Ok…so…this isn’t a document, I don’t need to bring it up, but you state in the House, “Mr. Speaker, the Members opposite has just used the ‘bad apple’ excuse..she has excused the desecration of a national …”

An objection was raised regarding parliamentary privilege.

Miller:
This is a parliamentary commission. There is no parliamentary privilege. …it does exist, but because this is a report to Parliament, pursuant to the case I gave you earlier….it doesn’t apply.  You can actually ask all of it because we are carrying out a parliamentary function and there is no liability here…it is just a report to Parliament. The Federal Court of Appeal has agreed…..this is just a statement from the Deputy Prime Minister in the house…”Mr. Speaker, the Members opposite has just used the ‘bad apple’ excuse..she has excused the desecration  …”

Additional procedural questions were raised.

Miller:
One of the things that happened during the protest in Ottawa dealt with the national monument, the Terry Fox statue, do you remember reading about that?

Freeland:
Yes I do remember…. the Terry Fox statue..I remember discussing it with my children…they were very upset.

Miller:
Yeah, and the Terry Fox statue, they put a hat on Terry Fox’s head and then put a flag in his arm and then was a ‘Mandate Freedom’ sign on it.

Freeland:
I don’t remember specifically what…how the Terry Fox statue was implicated in this, but I do remember reading about it…and I do remember it specifically because my children were aware of it and were upset.

Miller:
Right.And so I went online and I just looked at how many times someone has done that to that statue and it seems to be hundreds. So I’m just going to put this one on you…if someone puts an LGBTQ flag on the Terry Fox statue, and flowers in the statue is that a desecration?

Freeland:
I am not going to going into…I really don’t think it’s my job or helpful to Canadians for me to go into a discussion of what is ok and not ok…

Miller:
But you’ve said it was a desecration…you’ve called it a desecration in public…that was you were referring to…based on what was put on the statue…so is it fair to say that it is only a desecration to you if you don’t agree with the message?

Freeland:
Again…you’ve made a couple of leaps beyond anything I have said.

Miller:
That’s ok, it is the public record.
