You are watching in video watch the deputy prime minister and supremo of all things financial and banking. Chrystia Freeland, who is through those very own nodding dog dog. Trudeau here is talking with a straight face actually about the removal of people's rights in Ukraine by Putin's so called invasion and listened to him talking about authoritarianism.
Canada and our allies will defend democracy. We are taking these actions today to stand against authoritarianism. The people of Ukraine, like all people must be free to determine their own future. We will continue working with our international partners to safeguard Ukraine's territorial integrity and prevent further Russian aggression.
The hypocrisy there is duck talking. We do often say that Mike but this one's off the charts I'll move swiftly on because I know we're pressed for time. So in the context of that, let's have a look at the emergency measures regulations that has been much to do about in Canada because parliament has been prevailed upon to vote for them. Of course, the Duma also voted unilaterally for recognition of the Donbass republics and we're told that this was bullying but not when Canada gets the same results through its parliament with Trudeau saying if you vote against the government, the only reason possible is that you don't trust us to take the difficult decisions. Anyway, here's the SLR 2020 to 2021 Sorry, 2020 to 21 in the Canada Gazette. And what's the key point here? Section two of the regulation prohibition of public assembly, blah, blah, blah.

The trouble is particularly to a here that there's no ban on protests even under the emergency register that registered regulations, or persons registered as an Indian under the Indian Act because quite a lot of our viewers will know by now that one of the most brutalised ladies in last week in Ottawa is a recognised Mohawk elder. So whether that actually will have any juice actually, whether it will, it will give any legitimacy to claims to redress through the course. Remains to be seen. Another brief clip here and this is I think, a particularly interesting one we're going to hear the Canadian conservative federal MP, Colin carry ca WR IE, ask a question remotely perhaps because he's on job I don't venture to say but the jobs aren't allowed in the chamber but he's asking remotely across Canada's a huge country, he might just have been back in his writing his constituency. He's asking us about the World Economic Forum. rather amusingly, he stumbles and says WWF whether you're referring to the
