Marshal Law in Canada - Invoking a National Emergency provides the federal government with sweeping powers imposing bans on public assembly efani SAFE Secure

Civil Rights Groups to Challenge Martial Law in Canada |

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) and the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) announced their intention Thursday to take the “government of Canada to court” and challenge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergencies Act (“the Act”).

Invoking a national emergency provides the federal government with sweeping powers to, among other provisions, tackle the ongoing protests and blockades by imposing bans on public assembly in certain areas.

While Trudeau has defended the invocation of the Act on the grounds that the protests threaten the national economy and pose a danger to public safety and order, some have criticized the government’s “unprecedented” move.

Both CCLA and CCF criticized the federal government over its failure to address the issue through the existing legal tools and argued that invoking the Act grants the government “enormous powers to bypass the ordinary, accountable democratic process” Therefore, it is an extreme measure for which the legal threshold has been kept intentionally high and narrowly defined.

They specifically argue that the criteria under § 3 of the Act, which requires a “national emergency” have not been adequately fulfilled. Further, CCLA and CCF assert that the existing legal machinery is capable of tackling such situations, leaving out the need for the adoption of such drastic measures that curtail the constitutional and civil liberties of all citizens.

CCF Litigation Director Christine Van Geyn stated:

Emergency legislation should not be normalized. The threshold for using the Emergencies Act is extremely high and has not been met. The decision to invoke the Emergencies Act, which has never been used or interpreted by the courts, is unprecedented. If Parliament authorizes the proclamation of the public order emergency, the courts will be the last defence for the rule of law,” Christine Van Geyn, CCF Litigation Director, stated in a press release. This isn’t about the convoy versus the city. This is about the rule of law.

CCLA Executive Director & General Counsel Noa Mendelsohn Aviv further emphasized that its challenge of the emergency invocation is “not” an endorsement of the extreme views of far-right groups participating in the protests:

we are deeply concerned by the reports that some of the protesters currently in the streets have engaged in violent, racist, homophobic acts. We hear and recognize the impacts these acts are having on marginalized communities; we stand with these communities and condemn this behaviour.

The protests began in January in opposition to the federal government’s vaccine mandate, but have since evolved into a broader demonstration against the pandemic restrictions and the Trudeau government.
