Last month, the Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo came to the rescue when GoFundMe cancelled the $10 million fundraiser for the Canadian Freedom Convoy.
Shortly after GiveSendGo raised nearly $9 million for the truckers, a Canadian judge froze the funds.
The Canadian government has criminalized the receiving of funds from the Canadian trucker campaigns and now are trying to seize the funds to redistribute. In order to protect our Givers and the intended purpose of their gifts, funds not already transferred to the recipients from the ‘Freedom Trucker Convoy' campaign will be refunded.
Government lawyers Monique Jilesen and Melissa Adams tried to argue that refunding the donors violates the court freezing order. But this is probably because their goal is to take that money and redistribute it how they see fit.
From Global News:
Monique Jilesen, a lawyer representing the proposed class and who obtained an injunction that froze convoy funds, said the order is meant to secure funds so the legal issue of how they should be used can be dealt with in court.
...Melissa Adams, a lawyer from the Attorney General of Ontario's office, echoed Jilesen's arguments on Wednesday, adding that GiveSendGo is also subject to a restraint order made in February.
They want those multiple 18-wheeler loads of cash!
Money talks. The funds that were raised for these truckers spoke volumes.
The amount of support these truckers got was insane!
And the haters can't stand it!
GiveSendGo was hacked and their donor list was doxxed. It was so bad that they even demanded an FBI probe because they believe these hackers are "terrorists" who are "instilling fear."
After so much perseverance, it seems as though GiveSendGo has hit a wall. They would rather refund the money at this point than risk getting it into the hands of the government.
At the end of the day it is just money. Having that BIG $10 MILLION attached to this movement is already a win. The government knows the people won't stand its lunacy any more.
Make sure to thank a trucker for standing up to tyranny!
