Cameras were rolling inside the Library and Archives Canada building in Ottawa Wednesday when a government lawyer suddenly collapsed during an official inquiry.
The incident happened just as Public Order Emergency Commission lawyer Gabriel Poliquin was questioning Ontario deputy solicitor general Mario Di Tommaso about the government’s use of the Emergencies Act during the Freedom Convoy demonstrations.
Poliquin was standing at a podium as he asked Di Tommaso a question when he attempted to open a bottle of water, but then slumped over before collapsing onto the floor.
While Poliquin was treated by emergency responders, immediate reports noted his current “condition is unclear.”
“Paramedics entered with a wheeled stretcher, and after a few minutes they left carrying Poliquin, who was conscious and upright,” the Toronto Star reported.
Also unclear is exactly what caused the attorney to suddenly fall over, a trend seen too often in the wake of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
Social media posts indicate Poliquin has indeed received multiple Covid jabs, with one Twitter post from him hashtagged #vaxxedtothemax.
