Canadian Lawyer collapses during Emergencies Act inquiry, delaying proceedings

Proceedings were paused at the public inquiry looking into the federal government’s use of the Emergencies Act on Wednesday afternoon after a medical incident.

A lawyer representing the Public Order Emergency Commission collapsed while he was questioning Ontario’s deputy solicitor general, the second witness of the day.

Emergency responders were called to the Library and Archives Canada building in downtown Ottawa and proceedings were stopped. lawyers and spectators were cleared from the hearing room.

Gabriel Poliquin was in the early stages of examining Mario Di Tommaso when he collapsed to the floor. His condition is unclear.

Poliquin is part of a team of lawyers working for the commission, which is tasked with investigating the circumstances surrounding the Liberal government’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canadian history on Feb. 14.

Comment: Considering Poliquin’s job, we can reasonably assume that he would’ve received an experimental Covid injection in order to continue working under Canada’s tyrannical lockdown policies, whether or not his collapse is related remains to be seen.
