John takes a look through the first volume of the Public Order Emergency Commission's report–released on February 17. He finds evidence of bias from the authors, particularly when writing about the beliefs of the protestors, which, John says, should have no relevance on whether the invocation of the Emergencies Act was justified. At the end of the show, John focuses on the report's Recommendation 53, which he calls a frontal assault on free speech in Canada.
