Trudeau’s Senate Leader Tires of Defending Use of Emergencies Act

The Leader of the Government in the Senate is supposed to represent the Government in the Senate Chamber.

That role was especially important when the Trudeau Government invoked one of the most draconian pieces of legislation in the country, the Emergencies Act, to deal with a protest in front of Parliament Hill.

I asked Senator Gold some reasonable questions during Senate debate on this Emergencies Act motion, asking him to justify the use of such intense legislation for a protest where even the ringleaders were charged with mischief.

His answer? Either he was tired of trying to defend it, or he just gave up completely!
