Emergency over. Danger passed. Peril averted. Crisis collapsed. Canada saved. Insurrection interruptus.
Did it happen at all? Oh, yes. It really did.
Struck by the brevity of the invocation of the Emergencies Act and its “accelerated revocation,” Canadian commentator, Rex Murphy, describes the latter as “more mysterious than the storm of wild characterizations of the convoy” that were used to justify its use.
Murphy rallies Canadians to explore the “briefest imposition of an emergency state since 1945”. The “invasion of so many civil liberties, especially the freezing of bank accounts and the banks’ co-operation in this matter,” he says “must not be allowed to dip into oblivion.”
