“The advice we received was to invoke the Emergencies Act,” Mendicino stated at the time.

RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki, as well as Ottawa interim police chief Steve Bell, are  both on record stating that they did not ask for the Emergencies Act. In fact, no police force in Canada has stated that they recommended invocation of the EMA.

At least calls for his resignation are happening, though it is not enough. With blood on his hands because of this, the penalty needs to be much, much worse. But you and I know the politicals take care of themselves and it will never happen.
