Canada’s Trudeau ends emergency powers invoked to clear protests

Arab News says Canada is ending rarely used special measures invoked nine days ago to tackle weeks-long protests that shut some border crossings and paralyzed Ottawa since late-January, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday.

“The situation is no longer an emergency. Therefore, the federal government will be ending the use of the Emergencies Act,” Trudeau told a news conference.

“We are confident that existing laws and bylaws are now sufficient to keep people safe,” he said.

Trudeau said the emergency measures would formally be revoked in the coming hours, when Canada’s governor general signs the proclamation.
