WATCH BELOW as Toronto Sun Editor-in-Chief Adrienne Batra speaks to columnists Brian Lilley and Jamil Jivani about how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may have been told “there was potential for a breakthrough,” with the Freedom Convoy before he invoked the Emergencies Act but there’s no chance he was interested. Trudeau wanted a fight with the unruly crowd who had occupied the streets outside of Parliament in late January and early February and there was no way he’d let a negotiated settlement get in the way of that.
