The Commission welcomes contributions from all members of the public on their experiences, views, observations, and ideas in order to carry out its mandate and fully appreciate how these matters affected Canadians. This is an important part of the Commission’s investigation, and you are encouraged to make a written submission by following the guidelines below.
It is important to note that the work of the Commission focuses on examining and assessing the basis for the Government’s decision to declare a public order emergency, the circumstances that led to the declaration, and the appropriateness and effectiveness of the measures selected by the Government to deal with the then-existing situation. In light of this mandate, public submissions addressing the questions set out below will be most helpful to the Commission’s work.”
