TD Bank Seizes Freedom Convoy Assets, Turns Them Over to Canadian Government
"This is the next evolution of the battle for Freedom vs. Fascism."
The Canadian government is successfully colluding with big banks to seize assets intended for the peaceful protesters of the Freedom Convoy movement.
On Friday, TD Bank told CTV News that it would "apply to surrender to an Ontario court the money that had not been refunded by GoFundMe, totalling about $1 million, as well as some $400,000 the group had accepted through direct donations."
“TD has asked the court to accept the funds, which were raised through crowdfunding and deposited into personal accounts at TD, so they may be managed and distributed in accordance with the intentions of the donors, and/or to be returned to the donors who have requested refunds but whose entitlement to a refund cannot be determined by TD,” spokesperson Carla Hindman said.
Keith Wilson, the lead attorney for the Freedom Convoy movement, said that the group "planned to fight to retrieve any money they had raised," CTV reported. The Freedom Convoy groups is now turning to a cryptocurrency fundraiser that has raised nearly $1 million.
“We will be taking expedited legal steps to have the restrictions on the donated funds lifted as soon as possible,” Wilson said in an email to CTV News.
The Freedom Convoy organizers are now turning to a cryptocurrency fundraiser based on Satoshis.
HonkHonkHodl is helping to spearhead the fundraising. It has raised over one million dollars already.
"In a video posted on Facebook by supporters, convoy organizers discuss the strategy online for fundraising, turning to a crowdfunding website that raises money in a cryptocurrency called Satoshis — about US $913,000 as of Friday afternoon," CTV reported.
