TORONTO: The Democracy Fund (TDF) is disappointed with Commissioner Rouleau’s findings that the federal government met the high threshold required to invoke a public order emergency.
While TDF agrees with the commissioner that a “reasonable” and “well-informed” person could disagree with his conclusion, we respectfully disagree that there were reasonable grounds to believe that threats to the security of Canada existed.
Lawyers at TDF will be studying the report in more detail over the next few days. In the meantime, we will continue to defend protestors who were charged in connection to the Freedom Convoy.
