RCMP Commissioner Contradicts Feds’ Claim Law Enforcement Advised Using Emergencies Act

The RCMP told a parliamentary committee on May 10 that it did not advise on or request the invocation of the Emergencies Act in February, and was also not aware of any other policing body that did so.
Among the justifications cited by the Liberal government for invoking the emergency measures, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it had been done on the advice of law enforcement.
“We’re not in the position to provide influence on the government as to when and where they invoke a certain Act,” said RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki in her testimony before the Special Joint Committee on the Declaration of Emergency.
