COVID has crowned a new king – our former Prime Minister.
Even though he has a minority in parliament – meaning he needs co-operation from the “opposition”, he has emergency COVID powers, which means, like a king, he can rule by decree.
The #HRDPAR staged hoax shooting in Nova Scotia is so fresh that no government could react with such lightening speed – unless the legislation was already written and unless the government had given itself dictatorial powers.
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair has drawn up a list of 11 firearms that he is recommending be banned in Canada and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now reviewing that list, sources said. Trudeau’s final approval could come as soon as today, the French-language arm of CBC reported.
If enacted, the bans would be imposed through an order-in-council — a cabinet decree — not legislation, sources said. Parliament’s attention is entirely on the pandemic right now. The government could still introduce gun control legislation down the line when the current limits on parliamentary work are lifted.
What exactly is the rush to pass new gun laws? Since it’s not about a staged hoax, it can only be because all western governments are worried about armed citizens. At least in the USA, citizens were given the right to bear arms to protect them from tyrannical governments, like the ones that have suddenly emerged overnight in wake of COVID.No tags for this post.
