Far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has threatened to freeze assets and suspend insurance of the truckers involved in the Freedom Convoy protests.

Trudeau’s Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said:

“This is about following the money.

"This is about stopping the financing of these illegal blockades.”

“We are today serving notice if your truck is being used in these illegal blockades, your corporate accounts will be frozen.”

After threatening to freeze truckers’ corporate accounts, Freeland warned vehicle insurance would also be suspended.

WATCH:

“The insurance on your vehicle will be suspended,” she said.

“Send your semi-trailers home, the Canadian economy needs them to be doing legitimate work, not to be illegally making us all poor.”

The Freedom Convoy of truckers has been peacefully protesting against the vaccine mandates after the prime minister required proof of vaccination to be shown at the Canadian border.

The truckers shut down border crossings in British Columbia, Manitoba, and Alberta.

The Freedom Convoy also held a blockade of the Ambassador Bridge, which connects Ontario to Detroit.

“The blockades are harming our economy and endangering public safety,” Trudeau said at Monday’s press conference.

"We cannot and will not allow illegal and dangerous activities to continue.

Trudeau also invoked emergency powers one day after his government cleared the Ambassador Bridge after the blockade.

As the BBC reported:

The Emergencies Act, passed in 1988, demands a high legal bar to be invoked. It may only be used in an “urgent and critical situation” that “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians.”

Trudeau’s father was last to invoke the Emergencies Act, former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, in 1970.

Trudeau said the emergency powers would be “time-limited, geographically targeted, as well as reasonable and proportionate to the threats they are meant to address.”

The emergency powers grant banks the power to freeze certain individuals’ corporate and personal accounts, bypassing a court order.

Freeland said:

The government is issuing an order with immediate effect under the Emergencies Act, authorizing Canadian financial institutions to temporarily cease providing financial services where the institution suspects that an account is being used to further the illegal blockades and occupations. This order covers both personal and corporate accounts.

Earlier this week, Trudeau attempted to shift the blame away from his own government for the freedom protests, civil unrest, and gridlock in Canada by claiming the crisis is America’s fault.

According to Trudeau, Americans are to blame for the unrest that is causing gridlock along the U.S.-Canada border and in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa.

Trudeau claims that Americans are funding the “Freedom Convoy” protesters.

The protesters have been demonstrating against government-imposed mandates and other restrictions in Ottawa for over two weeks.
