Show Notes

Lawyers Hatim Kheir and Eva Chipiuk join Kevin to give us an introduction to the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC), which starts on Thursday, October 13, in Ottawa. They explain the format, the rules, the implications, and the knowns and unknowns, of this historic process. This is the first POEC, following the first-ever invocation of the Emergencies Act in February of 2022, when the federal government shut down the freedom rights movement in the capital.
