Clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson warned Canadians in a podcast this week to withdraw money from Canadian banks, citing a source allegedly in the Canadian military who warned “the situation is far worse” than imagined.
The “situation” in Canada is the unprecedented activation of the Emergencies Act, a law intended to grant the federal government sweeping powers against terrorism and mass violence. Left-wing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Act last week for the first time in Canadian history, claiming it was necessary to dispel peaceful protests linked to the Freedom Convoy movement. Freedom Convoy protesters are demanding an end to civil rights violations by the Trudeau government supposedly necessary to fight the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. The largest iteration of these protests was stationed outside of Parliament in Ottawa and had no significant record of violence.
