Court attack on truckers’ funding is ‘as worthless as a milk pail under a bull’

The protests by Canadian protests have become a high profile element of the frustration of citizens in the United States and Canada with government lockdowns.

Donation-raising company rebukes Canadian judge for order

While it’s evident that the truckers’ convoy in Canada in protest of COVID-19 mandates and restrictions is working – a growing number of provinces are moving to ease their requirements – the fight continues with another defeat for the government agents trying to punish the popular movement.

It happened when a Canadian court claimed that it was shutting down a GiveSendGo account raising funds for the truckers.

The company swiftly rebuked the court, saying it had no jurisdiction to do what it was attempting.

The convoy has been developing for several weeks, and it now is shutting down roads and highways in and around Ottawa, the capital, and key trade routes, to apply pressure to reduce the extraordinary mask and vaccine demands the government there, under Justin Trudeau, has imposed.

Fox News reported that Ontario Premier Doug Ford proclaimed on Thursday the decision from the Superior Court of Justice that would be “prohibiting any person from disposing of, or otherwise dealing with, in any manner whatsoever, any and all monetary donations made through the Freedom Convoy 2022 and Adopt-a-Trucker campaigns pages on the GiveSendGo online fundraising platform.”

The fundraising campaign had moved to the popular GiveSendGo program after a previous effort at GoFundMe had been shut down by leftist interests within that company itself.

Ford claimed the court’s order “binds any and all parties with possession or control over these donations.”

The company, GiveSendGo, however, had another opinion.

“Canada has absolutely ZERO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds here at GiveSendGo. All funds for EVERY campaign on GiveSendGo flow directly to the recipients of those campaigns, not least of which is The Freedom Convoy campaign,” the company said.

That account had approximately $8.4 million at the time the court attempted to impose its will on the American company.

A commentary by Steve Ahle at DJHJMedia pointed out that, “The Canadian court probably thought they could pressure GiveSendGo into relenting and stop the flow of money to the truckers. They are now finding out that their court order does not mean a thing as the CEO of GiveSendGo pointed out that as an American company, the court’s ruling is as worthless as a milk pail under a bull.”

He said, “People in the U.S. and in Canada are pretty fed up with the continuous lockdowns. It has gotten so bad that in one week, Democratic governors went from even stricter lockdowns to ending the lockdowns and the masking. In Canada, they are fed up and the truckers have provided a way for them to fight back. In return, the good people of that country have taken it upon themselves to make sure that the truckers are fed and receive whatever help they require.”

Samaritan’s Purse chief Franklin Graham posted online a video showing thousands of people cheering drivers of hundreds of trucks in the action to protest government control.

He said, “I’d like you to meet those who Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the ‘fringe minority.’ Tell me what you think of this video.”

Sorry. They have no jurisdiction whatsoever. It’s simply a scare tactic. Typical of tyrannical governments who are panicking because their power and control is slipping away. They will not win this fight.

Any leader pushing for mask, vaccine and lockdown mandates should be taken out of office. These are crimes against humanity and the biggest scam ever. The mandates must be stopped! For 2 years, the left wing media has pushed this narrative. The jabs do not work, the doctors and virologists warning people the jabs could be lethal for some were silenced and masks do not work. The deaths were mostly from people’s co-morbidities. This is a plan to depopulate the world and for big pharma to make billions off a jab that doesn’t work. See the World Economic Forum.
