Prime Minister Trudeau to invoke Emergencies Act

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will invoke the Emergencies Act to deal with the illegal occupation in Ottawa.

Trudeau told the premiers in a call this morning and there was a caucus meeting this morning. There are currently no plans to call in the military.

The Emergencies Act is an act of the Parliament of Canada that can authorize special temporary measures to ensure safety and security during national emergencies.

The Act provides the federal government with sweeping emergency powers.

There are four types of emergencies listed under the act: a public welfare emergency; a public order emergency; an international emergency; and a war emergency.
