Hub Roundtable: The Emergencies Act inquiry reveals cascading leadership failures

Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly speaks at a news conference, in Ottawa, on Friday, Feb. 4, 2022. The former chief resigned on Feb. 15, a day after the Emergencies Act was invoked, citing a “growing lack of confidence” in his leadership, and a lack of trust in his work leading to a lag in resources arriving.

This week’s Hub Dialogue Roundtable discusses the potential political fallout from the Emergencies Act inquiry in Ottawa, whether or not the evidence shows the Act was justified given the situation, and what it tells us about the state of our country.

Discussion also turns to the Bank of Canada’s surprising decision this week to announce a rate hike below the market’s expectations and what this will mean for the economy and Canadian’s already hurting pocketbooks.
