Canada cancelled the Emergencies Act today. Regardless of what the government and media may claim, the most likely reason is that the Senate would have voted against it following a truly remarkable speech given by Senator Donald Plett. It is a remarkable speech that sets the record straight about what happened on the ground in Ottawa over these past weeks, the dangerous legal precendents that were being set, the historical context of what Justin Trudeau tried to impose, and the devastating consequences to our democracy, our legal system, and our financial system.
I encourage you to listen to Senator Plett’s extraordinary speech - it is worth every minute. And please send it to every single person you know, especially those who believed the government’s actions to be lawful. This speech goes a very long way towards helping Canadians understand the terrifying magnitude of what our leaders did and the monumental challenges ahead to repair the damage that has been done to our country over these past few weeks.

Here are a few of the other theories I’ve come across:
