The idea was that the trucks weren't towing voluntarily...
Yes, vehicles don't have the ability to tow themselves.  Do you think Trudeau just figured this out?

It allows government to force tow companies to start towing vehicles.
How does it do that?  If a tow truck driver doesn't get in his truck and drive somewhere, how do they force him?  By gunpoint?

They already have the authority to tow vehicles etc.  This is turning into a constitutional crisis, thanks to feckless Trudeau and the Ottawa police department.
But the Emergency Act wasn't required to start towing vehicles etc.

as always, you're so misinformed - towing companies refused requests to tow!

Quote
Mark Graves, who runs the Provincial Towing Association of Ontario, said his members have been inundated with requests from the city and police to tow protester vehicles – all prior to the Emergencies Act being invoked on Monday – and the response has been a unanimous no.

“It would be business suicide,” he said. “These are the trucking companies that call you for the work when they break down on the side of the road. You think … they’re ever going to call you again? You may as well just write your own ticket to shut your business down.”

How they're used?  Like they can't or don't have any opinion of their own?  Like they don't have the ability to decide for themselves about participating in this protest? How racist can you be?  Seriously?  You guys are brutal.  How long are you going to insist that minorities stay on your ideological plantation?

Of course they can, you moron. But you're pretending there's significant representation there when there is not. Just like how you pretend this whole protest is the voice of the majority when the majority doesn't agree with you.

But tell me more about BLM's support for this convoy and opposition to vaccines, you lying turd.

Authority and ability are two separate things.  Regardless, how are you going to force a tow driver to tow a vehicle?  By gunpoint?

The term significant is subjective.  However, you pretend to not notice them at all.  Regardless, I don't take orders from glittering jewels of hypocrisy.  Now go and apply two separate standards to the convoy protest, vs the pipeline protest or the BLM protests.  You're good at that.

I didn't backpedal on anything.  They had the AUTHORITY under the law to tow vehicles before the Emergency declaration.  That's a fact.  Now go on and order drivers to tow vehicles by gun point.

No, criminal charges.

Not really.  The Emergency Act allows them to bypass due process, so no court order is required to freeze bank accounts.  But you can't lock up Canadian citizens without due process.  You people have lost your minds.  This isn't China, even though Trudeau wishes it was.  And even though you people wish it was.

Apparently we already had peak fascism last week, so this must be no big deal. Check your bank account yet! How's the crypto holding up?

who is "they"? As you say, regardless... towing companies refused to tow - point in fact. There are now fewer trucks and more leaving as the waldo speaks - virtual towing, hey! Local policing jurisdictions now have the Emergency Act tools to help clear the rabble, without the need for your zealous want for violence.

How about "big"?

Even at the protests.  Big groups of Sikh and Black truckers.

So far, we've seen a few individuals, but "big groups"? Nah.

LOL, the guy who runs around demanding people denounce this or that cries like a baby when he's busted in yet another self-own.

I guess getting slapped around by me on a daily basis here is cheaper than hiring a dominatrix, but it's pretty boring.

Kinda like how you are happy to quote a guy who defends riots related to BLM when he is on your side on this issue?
