The administration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked emergency powers this week and said it would go after funding sources for the protesters, whom it has repeatedly compared to Nazis, terrorists and racists. The declaration of emergency requires “any financial service provider to determine whether they have in their possession or control property that belongs to a person who participates in the blockade.”
Host Evan Solomon asked Mr. Lametti that “a lot of folks said, ‘I just don’t like your vaccine mandates and I donated to this, now it’s illegal, should I be worried that the bank can freeze my account?’”
