Emergencies Act Prompts County of Minburn Councillor to Speak Out
Invocation of the Emergencies Act sparked debate and criticism when the issue was raised by County of Minburn Div. 6 Councillor Carl Ogrodnick at the regular meeting of council on Feb. 22.
Ogrodnick brought forward the item for discussion as he wanted council to write a letter of opposition to Prime Minister Trudeau. He said the Emergencies Act should not have been invoked and voiced strong opposition with the federal government’s power to freeze bank accounts.
Ogrodnick said he had pledged $100 to the Freedom Convoy 2022 campaign, but that his bank account had not been frozen. However, he had heard reports of that happening to other people.
