The Liberals were attempting to give themselves unfettered power to tax, spend, and borrow until December 2021.
Facing immense backlash among Canadians, the Liberals have retreated on their obscene power grab.
The Liberals had attempted to pass legislation that would have given them unprecedented power, wiping out Parliament and making the Opposition powerless.
The legislation would have given the Liberal cabinet the ability to make any and all decisions on spending, taxing, and borrowing, with ZERO oversight, no votes, and no Parliamentary approval.
In short, it would have entrenched them as a dictatorship until December of 2021.
Now, the Liberals are retreating:
“The legislation will be tabled without clause 2.”

Liberal house leader Pablo Rodriguez also Tweeted that it would be changed after ‘consulting’ with the Opposition (AKA being busted on their huge power grab):
“Tomorrow, we’ll seek to pass the emergency response to the #COVID19. We consulted with the opposition and will bring changes to the draft legislation. We will always work collaboratively and respect the fundamental role of Parliament.”

Of course, the fact that the Liberals even tried this is a disgrace, and shows their true priorities:
Power at any cost.
Instead of bringing Canadians together, the Liberals tried to exploit this situation to make the biggest power grab of all time.
We must remember this moment, and remain vigilant against the next power grab.
