It is common knowledge now that the Canadian Government froze a handful of bank accounts based on suspicion of funding the 2022 Convoy Protests.

When I watched Justin Trudeau's portion of the Emergencies Act hearing, I heard he mentioned about 6 measures taken, one of which was freezing bank accounts.

However, in that hearing, I don't recall hearing any specific justification for each measure. The closest I heard was that he was told by subsidiary local authorities that they had a plan in place but that it was woefully inadequate and/or not executed.

Is there a detailed report or other official video clip that explains in detail the justification for each measure?

    Not sure, but you might have to go back to the debate around passing the law that Trudeau invoked. That might require crawling through a lot of Hansard. It's more than I have time for, but feel free. ourcommons.ca/documentviewer/en/35-2/house/hansard-index

  • What specifically are you looking for? As you say, it was common knowledge it was for funding the 2022 convoy protests.

  • I see what you are saying. Freeze the bank accounts because they were involved in funding the protests. What I am looking for is, why freezing when a different sort of sanction, like garnishment, was not sufficient?
