65 witnesses set to testify at inquiry into use of Emergencies Act - 2022-10-11
The history-making inquiry into the federal government's use of emergency powers to quell the convoy protest last winter is beginning to take shape ahead of its start later this week.
The Public Order Emergency Commission will begin public hearings on Thursday into the circumstances around the federal government's decision to invoke the Emergencies Act. It is expected to hear from 65 witnesses during its factual stage, including protest participants, law enforcement representatives, cabinet ministers, and officials with provincial and municipal governments, as well as businesses and organizations impacted by the protests.
On Tuesday, the commission released a list of anticipated witnesses, in the anticipated order of appearance.
