An inquiry into the federal government's use of the Emergencies Act has heard first-hand testimony about the effect of the so-called ``Freedom Convoy'' protest.

The protest saw large semi-trucks relentlessly honking their horns and blocking off the streets of downtown Ottawa for over three weeks.
Similar demonstrations took place across the country.
Over the next six weeks, the hearings will see testimony from 65 witnesses across government, police and organizers of the convoy.
