Episode details

After much anticipation, Justice Paul Rouleau has released his final report for the Public Order Emergency Commission, finding that the Canadian government’s use of the Emergencies Act against the trucker convoy was appropriate, but noting that he came to this conclusion reluctantly.

My guest on the program today had a front row seat — for both the convoy protests in Ottawa and the Commission — and he joins me today to talk about what this report means for Canada going forward.


Paul Wells is an award-winning Canadian journalist, the author of a popular Substack, and the host of the Paul Wells Show podcast. His latest book is An Emergency in Ottawa: The Story of the Convoy Commission, and it’s out early next month.

Paul Wells is my guest, today on Lean Out.
