The Justification for Declaring a “Public Order Emergency”
Several of the documents relied upon by the federal government to justify its declaration this week of a “public order emergency” under the Emergencies Act are now in the public domain via journalists from various organizations [EDIT: as Lyle Skinner points out to me, the documents are in the public domain by virtue of having been tabled in Parliament].

Here is a report on consultation between federal, provincial and municipal authorities.
And here is a letter from the Prime Minister to the premiers.
