  1. Growing up in Alberta, I saw numerous foreign funded/organized protests occur of the oilsands and pipelines. No body batted an eye about it then

    1. You just responded to your own statement…..it was in Alberta. This protest was in Ottawa directed towards the federal government. I hope they take every last nickel and hand it out to those businesses that the protest shutdown. All that money was doing was funding one big party and BBQ with free parking.

    1. @roof pizza <--- Hey, it's the refugee fleeing the three billy goats! Have you found a new bridge under which to live?

  2. There is a difference between the funding from overseas organizations and individuals. Don’t generalize individuals’ support to be a foreign interference.

    1. @Steven W maybe he was smart ? Do you want your PM to start endorsing horse wormer and fish tank cleaner if you get sick ,? Hard question to decide ,I guess, . Maybe depends who you are . I dont know , maybe its who you ask ?

    2. @Guacamole partII public order emergency

      Orders and regulations

      Marginal note:Orders and regulations

      19 (1) While a declaration of a public order emergency is in effect, the Governor in Council may make such orders or regulations with respect to the following matters as the Governor in Council believes, on reasonable grounds, are necessary for dealing with the emergency:

      (i) any public assembly that may reasonably be expected to lead to a breach of the peace,

      (ii) travel to, from or within any specified area, or

      (iii) the use of specified property;

      (b) the designation and securing of protected places;

      (c) the assumption of the control, and the restoration and maintenance, of public utilities and services;

      (d) the authorization of or direction to any person, or any person of a class of persons, to render essential services of a type that that person, or a person of that class, is competent to provide and the provision of reasonable compensation in respect of services so rendered; and

      (ii) on indictment, of a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars or imprisonment not exceeding five years or both that fine and imprisonment,

      for contravention of any order or regulation made under this section

    3. @Guacamole when a government can take your property, force you to work, deny you the ability to free movement in your own country, can create what would amount to a ghetto and tell it’s citizens it can’t leave… Then yea… Fascists and those that support it are Boot-lickers.

  3. This is an unanticipated consequence of crowd funding. Something gains momentum and money pours in from all over the place. It’s not a national emergency, just something new that has to be sorted out.

    1. @Lucas Blizzard Don’t forget she also did that during an election. I guess they were hoping she could turn some votes in alberta.

    2. The weapons cache in Alberta, and three week occupation protest with immovable force of big rigs, convinced me the Emergency Act was warranted.

  4. Investigate where the money in the Trudeau foundation comes from. Also why are we asking a statistician this question?

  5. Foreign funding of protest is now all of a sudden a problem. Who funds all of those environmental protests over pipelines and the oil sands? Wasn’t there lots of “foreign money” behind them?

  6. There is a difference between the funding from overseas organizations and individuals. Don’t generalize individuals’ support to be a foreign interference.
