OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – A national public hearing into the rationale for the unprecedented invocation of the Emergencies Act by Justin Trudeau’s government will be postponed for at least a month according to a statement from the Public Order Emergency Commission.

Commissioner of the hearings, Paul Rouleau – an Ontario judge – said in a statement that he will need to undergo an unforeseen surgery which will sideline him for four weeks.
There are no details about what sort of surgery is taking place “out of respect for the privacy of the Commissioner and his family.”
While Rouleau is afforded the right to privacy, the subject of the investigation – Justin Trudeau and his cabinet – ensured that parliamentarians did not maintain the right to medical privacy regarding vaccination when they mandated all those in government receive the experimental jabs.
Rouleau said that while the hearings cannot proceed as previously scheduled, “the Commission remains focused on meeting the statutory timetable.”
The statement from the commission was sent to True North who reported the development, and the outlet confirmed in their story that a public announcement is forthcoming.
Six weeks of hearings were scheduled to begin on September 19, just after Parliament resumes for the year, but that has been changed to an October 13 start date, with an ending set for the end of November.
As LifeSiteNews reported in June, the Public Order Emergency Commission is an ad hoc commission that was created by the Liberals in the wake of the invocation of the Emergencies Act.
So far, numerous statements the Liberals have made about why the EA was invoked have been debunked in a public fashion, with Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendocino being caught lying about requests from law enforcement at least a dozen times.
Public Safety Minister @marcomendicino‘s office is now claiming he was misunderstood when he said police advised the Liberal government to use the Emergencies Act
Here’s a clip of him saying exactly that about a dozen times in the House of Commons

The potentially thin defence that the Liberals could mount when placed under the scrutiny of a public hearing has led conservative commentators at major Canadian outlets to opine that Trudeau might be eyeing another snap election this fall as a way to get out of the hearings.
