Emergency preparedness minister Bill Blair also said lack of police enforcement ‘inexplicable’

“The federal government has discussed invoking special emergency powers to deal with ongoing protests in Ottawa, Emergency Preparedness Minister Bill Blair says, calling a lack of enforcement in the nation’s capital “inexplicable.”

The government’s Incident Response Group and cabinet have had “daily” discussions about potential use of the Emergencies Act, Blair said in an interview on Sunday on Rosemary Barton Live.

A cabinet meeting was added to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s itinerary late Sunday, and CBC News has learned that a meeting with the prime minister and premiers has been called for Monday morning.”
