 Canadian Government Proudly Admits to Requesting GoFundMe to Withhold Trucker Convoy Donations – Begs Other Crowdfunding Sites to Follow Suit

On Friday, GoFundMe removed the $10 million Canadian Trucker Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser.

Hours after the digital highway robbery, the Ottawa Police Department (OPD) tweeted out a statement that thanked the crowdfunding platform for caving to the city’s demands to withhold funding from the protesters.

The OPD statement also called on other platforms to follow suit, while labeling the grassroots movement against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s authoritarianism an “unlawful demonstration.”

“We want to thank GoFundMe for listening to our concerns as a City and a police service. The decision to withhold funding for these unlawful demonstrations is an important step and we call on all crowdfunding sites to follow.”

Like a true fascist, Ottawa’s Mayor Jim Watson also praised GoFundMe for their decision to defraud donors and steal the money away from the truckers.

Just like the OPD, Watson also called the demonstrators “unlawful” and asked all other crowdfunding platforms to choke off funding to the protest, because, he “hopes,” they will not be able to stay in the city without outside “funding and resources.”

“I want to sincerely thank the team at GoFundMe for listening to the plea made by the City and the Ottawa Police to no longer provide funds to the convoy organizers”

“In light of the unlawful behaviour that has transpired in the last few days, they have come to the right decision in support of our city and our residents.

These protesters have been holding our city hostage for a week now, and i’m hopeful that limiting their access to funding and resources will restrict their ability to remain in Ottawa.

I am imploring similar crowdfunding platforms to take the same position and not enable the group in it’s fundraising efforts, which would deal a blow to our efforts to put an end to this occupation.”
