WATCH: Trudeau Unveils Russian Sanctions, Says Canada Will ‘Stand Against Authoritarianism’

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau raised eyebrows across North America this week when he vowed to “stand against authoritarianism” just days after declaring a nationwide ‘State of Emergency’ to control anti-mandate protesters.

“Canada and our allies will defend Democracy. We’re taking these actions today to stand against authoritarianism. The people of Ukraine, like all people, must be free to determine their own future,” said Trudeau.

“We will work with our international partners to safeguard Ukraine’s territorial integrity and prevent further Russian aggression,” he added.
