Yes he did say he would use it. Here in the presentFirst of all, the October Crisis that happened in 1970 in Quebec was not a Quebec based civil war.
The War Measures Act, which has been invoked three times in Canada’s history—during the First and Second World Wars and most recently by Mr. Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, in 1970 was in response to the kidnapping of James Cross, a British diplomat, and the kidnapping and murder of a Quebec provincial cabinet minister Pierre Laporte, by the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ).
This War Measures Act has now been repealed and replaced in 1988, by the Emergencies Act.
The Emergencies Act differs from the War Measures Act in two important ways:
Thus any attempt by the government to suspend the civil rights in Canada, even in an emergency, will be subject to the "reasonable and justified" test under section 1 of the Charter.
- A declaration of an emergency by the Cabinet must be reviewed by Parliament
- Any temporary laws made under the act are subject to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Our Prime Minister did not say he would use this act, but it is there to be used if necessary.
Yes. A better resource, though, for the limitations on the use of the military for law enforcement is available at:Have you read the whole United States Constitution and all the amendments,
MrockStar, I'm the only living relative for my 86 year old aunt who lives in a low cost HUD senior complex in Plymouth MI, I dropped off food yesterday for her and we took precautions, I put the food down and then she came and grabbed it. Will the National Guard help someone that has no car and no way to go to the store?The National Guard is first activated by the Governor for domestic disaster relief Ie Hurricanes, floods,earthquakes, tornadoes Ect. This time is a national heath emergency so in Michigan the Governor has the Guard handing out water distributing food to the needy and seniors and delivering medical supplies to hospitals and clinics. As a recently retired MI guardsman please dont spread misinformation/rumors here we all have enough stress/concern for our fellow Americans and should look for ways we can help/encourage others now. Thanks.
Depends on where you are as to the tasks assigned to NatG. Here, yes, they do food delivery to "shut ins" (but are currently moving medical supplies as our state did get a shipment from national stockpile in the past few days). I would not be surprised if they help with "welfare checks" as this goes on.MrockStar, I'm the only living relative for my 86 year old aunt who lives in a low cost HUD senior complex in Plymouth MI, I dropped off food yesterday for her and we took precautions, I put the food down and then she came and grabbed it.

If they were eastbound in Gainesville, GA, they are probably headed for the Port of Charleston, or if they hang a right, the Port of Savannah or even the Port of Jacksonville. Why? Part of a unit deployment judging from the mix of tracked vehicles, wheeled vehicles, tankers, generators, etc.Depends on where they are headed. Maybe borders. Maybe they are the next hospitals...
Don't forget the grips. And the key grips! And the gaffers, too!In California they're making plans that if martial law is imposed, they will also call out the Screen Actors Guild, the screenwriters union, the society of camera operators, all of the musicians and rappers - basically everyone involved in the entertainment industry. Working alongside the military forces, those folks will take care of martial arts.
I don't see it happening unless civil unrest breaks out. We do not currently have domestic wars nor are we being criminalized.I feel the average American citizen do not want Marital Law and does not understand how Marital Law will & would affect their daily movements. IMO.
I was kinda teasing. I did not look at train direction, just thought we had closed or tightened Canadian border recently. I would not expect to need heavy artillery up there. A simple Please oughta do.If they were eastbound in Gainesville, GA, they are probably headed for the Port of Charleston, or if they hang a right, the Port of Savannah or even the Port of Jacksonville.

There are no borders to defend if you go east from Gainesville, GA.
Edit: Another guess. Since the RR tracks in Gainesville, GA run SW to NE, and the train in the video is heading NE, my bet is all this stuff is going to Ft. Bragg, near Fayetteville, NC.
