Chrystia Freeland, the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister of Canada stood up, affirming her stand in chiseling emergency financial measures that became effective when the national government summoned the Emergencies Act on the second last day of the Convoy hearing.
.@FinanceCanada Minister @cafreeland in Feb 13 videoconference with bankers said she “couldn’t agree more” with recommendation that cabinet deploy armed soldiers against #FreedomConvoy. “It’s a threat to democracy.” https://t.co/Si90XhyPBg #cdnpoli— Holly Doan (@hollyanndoan) November 25, 2022

Freeland informed the commission regarding the discussions she was having with top American authorities about the severe strain the “Freedom convoy” border barricades were having on the automotive area, reviewed with some feeling an urgent call she had with banks, and tried to frame why she felt the protests of the previous winter were “an attack on democracy.”
Freeland depicted during her testimony that the Freedom convoy dissenters as individuals attempting to change strategy at “gunpoint” and that she would not haggle with individuals who hold democracy “hostages.”
Freeland said,” I will never support negotiating with those who hold our democracy hostage.“

In her handwritten note to Dave, Freeland wrote,” You need to declare them a terrorist group.” When asked who Dave was, Freeland couldn’t remember. Counsel asked if it was Dave from CSIS, and Freeland replied no.
The crucial point Chrystia Freeland looked to commute home through her declaration was how seriously concerned senior U.S. authorities were about the “Freedom Convoy” fights and boundary barricades on cross-line exchange and key Canada-U.S. supply chains. Referring to the auto-producing area over and over as a center model, Freeland affirmed that the central government dreaded that line closures would affect Canadian organizations.
Watch.@cafreeland claims the freezing of bank accounts three days before the Emergency Order was "to provide an incentive to leave" and therefore "avoid blood on a face of a child". This is disguasting and disingenuous. #cdnpoli #POEC pic.twitter.com/xcIlCEiUBU— Roman Baber (@Roman_Baber) November 24, 2022
During her testimony, the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada got some information about a 10th February email she sent to federal officials, including a call with Brian Deese, Director of the White House of the National Economic Council.
As indicated by Freeland’s email, U.S. President Joe Biden’s top monetary approach consultant called her and was incredibly stressed about the border blockade of Ambassador Bridge.
