The Ontario government reportedly successfully petition a court to shut down the GiveSendGo freedom convoy fundraiser.
Global News reported:
The Ontario government says it has successfully petitioned a court to freeze access to millions of dollars donated through online fundraising platform GiveSendGo to the truckers convoyprotesting COVID-19 restrictions in Ottawa and at several border crossings.
A spokeswoman for Premier Doug Ford says Ontario’s attorney general brought the application to the Superior Court of Justice seeking an order that would prohibit anyone from distributing donations made through the website’s “Freedom Convoy 2022” and “Adopt-a-Trucker” campaign pages.
Spokeswoman Ivana Yelich says an order binding “any and all parties with possession or control over these donations” was issued today.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to GiveSendGo. Jacob Wells responded:
GiveSendGo account has not been shut down. GiveSendGo is not subject to Canadian court order. We are not Canadian citizens. We will issue a press release shortly.
Know this! 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.

Christian crowdfunding website, which is hosting the crowdfund for the Freedom Convoy truck drivers, says that it will not be following the orders of the Ontario court to freeze the crowdfund and stop the transfer of funds to the protesters.
