After collecting $10 million, GoFundMe has announced they will no longer serve as a donation site for the massive group of Canadian truckers protesting government COVID mandates and restrictions. In their statement to the truckers, GoFundMe referred to the peaceful protest as an “occupation” and claimed the protest included “acts of violence” and “other unlawful activity.”
The massive, peaceful convoy traveled across Canada to the nation’s capital last weekend for a pro-freedom rally. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was hiding under his bed after being exposed to COVID, called the huge group a “small fringe minority.” On Monday, the truckers headed to the Alberta-US border, where they are currently parked.
In their public statement, GoFundMe also explained that they would not automatically refund the donors. Instead, they said they would allow the truckers to keep the $1 million they collected earlier in the week, and the remaining $9 million would be donated to groups GoFundMe considers “credible,” and “established.”
Rebel News’ Ezra Levant blames Canada’s woke Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for GoFundMe’s decision to terminate the Truckers For Freedom haul of $9 million that was supposed to help sustain the truckers on the Alberta – US border.
At the request of Trudeau, @GoFundMe has just stolen $9,000,000 from the truckers. Rather than automatically refunding it to the donors, they say they’re going to give it to groups of their own choosing. What a windfall for Black Lives Matter, Greenpeace and Planned Parenthood! pic.twitter.com/prEwLnypfe

GoFundMe is getting hammered on social media for collecting $10 million for their truckers on their donation site and then refusing to give the group the money raised for them.
