I’m sitting the ornate Winifred Bambrick Room, inside Library and Archives Canada, waiting for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take the stand at the Public Order Emergency Commission.
This has been 10 months in the making. From the moment that a rag-tag crew of anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theorists, truckers, and anti-government types hatched a plan to drive a convoy of trucks to Canada’s capital and occupy it until their demands were met, to Trudeau’s decision to enact the never-before-used Emergencies Act to put an end to it: It’s all brought us here.
Rather than livetweeting, I’m going to try out a little live blog, right here on my Substack. There’ll be a few longer posts about what’s going on, a few pithy remarks, and lots of space for you folks to weigh in and respond if you feel so inclined.
