In response to continuous trucker protests over several Covid-19-related initiatives, including vaccine mandates, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has declared a national emergency.

As the agitation approached its 18th day, Trudeau made the announcement, invoking the Emergency Act, which was adopted in 1988 and had never been utilised before in Canadian history.

He added in Ottawa, “We must and will not allow unlawful and harmful acts to continue.” The emergency powers took effect right away and will endure for 30 days.
