Freedom Convoy Targets Bank After Unfair Treatment

Linkedin Share

In Canada, the “Freedom Convoy” movement has been a cultural phenomenon to say the least, and a societal shifter to boot.

The protest, which began as a way to push back against a wildly tyrannical quarantine protocol, has because a worldwide event, with truckers from Paris to Los Angeles joining in.

Now, as a major international bank threatens to freeze the group’s fundraising efforts, a new branch of activism has arrived.

Toronto-Dominion Bank froze two personal bank accounts, one of which included C$1.4 million ($1.1 million), to support “Freedom Convoy” protesters in Canada who are pushing back against vaccine mandates and other COVID-19 procedures.

The decision to freeze the accounts was confirmed by a spokesperson for the bank in a statement, according to a report from Reuters.

Official statements from the institutions were wildly confusing and vague.

The move, according to the statement, came after TD applied to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice this week about taking funds sent through bank transfers and GoFundMeand giving them to the intended recipients or returning them to the donors “who have requested refunds but whose entitlement to a refund cannot be determined by TD.”

The outlet reported that one bank account received C$1 million through GoFundMe and the rest was sent to a second account through a variety of bank transfers. The spokesperson said TD is unsure of where the GoFundMe payment originated.

There are still fears that a “freedom trucker” convoy could target the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
