Ontario’s provincial government went to court to stop GiveSendGo from transferring the millions of dollars in donated funds to the protest’s organizers of the Freedom Convoy. The court granted the order.

“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,” the government said in a statement.

“This afternoon, the order was issued. It binds any and all parties with possession or control over these donations.”

A few hours later, GiveSendGo released a statement saying it would not honor the court order and that Canada has no jurisdiction over the US-based company.

“Know this! Canada has absolutely ZERO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds here at GiveSendGo,” the company tweeted.

“All funds for EVERY campaign on GiveSendGo flow directly to the recipients of those campaigns, not least of which is The Freedom Convoy campaign.”
