Online funding site GiveSendGo is thumbing its nose at the Canadian government after a court there claimed it had shut down the website’s ability to send donations to the Freedom Convoy.

Last week, the Canadian government asked a Canadian court to shut down the Freedom convoy’s funding and the court announced it had barred the Internet funding site GiveSendGo from sending cash to the truckers.

But GiveSendGo told the Cannucks, “Not so fast!”

“Today, the Attorney General brought an application in the Superior Court of Justice for an order pursuant to section 490.8 of the Criminal Code 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 campaign pages on the GiveSendGo online fundraising platform,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford said in a statement.

Consequently, the government reportedly won a court order to freeze the Freedom Convoy’s GiveSendGo cash.

Today, the Ontario government won a court order blocking the use of “any and all monetary donations made through the Freedom Convoy 2022 and Adopt-a-Trucker campaign pages on the GiveSendGo online fundraising platform,” The Pulse reported on Friday.

The Ontario government claimed section 490.8 of its criminal code permitted the shutdown of the donations.

But GiveSendGo notes that the Canadian government has no bearing on its funding.

“Know this! Canada has absolutely ZERO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds here at GiveSendGo,” the crowdfunding company wrote on Twitter. “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 Canadian truckers, though, have also announced that they are now accepting crypto currencies, too.
