Ottawa convoy deemed national security threat a week before Emergencies Act: police

Ontario police deemed the so-called “Freedom Convoy” a threat to national security one week before the federal government invoked the Emergencies Act that police say was key to ending it.

“We did identify it as a threat to national security through the Provincial Operational Intelligence Bureau on or about the 7th of February,” said Thomas Carrique, commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police.

Carrique did not say during testimony before the House of Commons public safety committee on Thursday what led the police to make that assessment.

More to come.
