Based on stolen
data from the U.S.-based GiveSendGo crowdfunding platform of $8.9 million in donations, while most of the money came from Canada, the largest group of donors came from the U.S., followed by Canada, with lesser amounts and donors from a few other countries.
A senior official with the federal government’s intelligence unit responsible for preventing the financing of terrorist and money-laundering activities says the typical person who donated money to the Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa posed no security threat to Canada. Barry MacKillop, deputy...
In testimony before the Commons public safety and national security committee on Feb. 10, MacKillop said FINTRAC doesn’t view crowdfunding platforms as major sources of money to undermine the Canadian economy or the government.
“We do not consider crowdfunding platforms to be tools that could be used to launder money or finance terrorist activities,” he said.
“There is always a risk that someone could … but that’s not necessarily the tools they would choose. There are, in fact, many other ways that are probably easier to use to launder money or collect funds to finance terrorist activities.”
One would hope that with the Trudeau government now having revoked the Emergencies Act little more than a day after the House of Commons ratified it on Monday, MacKillop’s well-informed perspective would put a damper on the ongoing hysteria generated by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau labelling all vaccine mandate protesters as racists, misogynists and white supremacists.
This to the point where people are still being doxed
” in the media as donors to the Freedom Convoy, for doing nothing
illegal, using stolen
data that is so inaccurate it lists Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau as donors.
Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau as donors? Exposed by the stolen data from a cybercrime, that was gleefully posted by the CBC & used to dox average people? That would mean that they’re racists, misogynists and white supremacists (?) or that this was a false flag operation (?) or maybe something else entirely. Maybe Justin & Sophie are just an unacceptable fringe minority or something something misogynists, etc…
Liberal MP Taleeb Noormohamed asked: “Do you have any concerns or have there been any flags raised thus far around potential sources of funding for what has been happening in Ottawa?”
And MacKillop responded: “No. In terms of the sources of funding that we’ve seen to date … we have not seen a spike in suspicious transaction reporting … related to this.”
The rest of this enlightenment in the much ado about nothing from the crowd sourcing that was a big nothingburger beyond the fact that it made Trudeau want to freeze & seize the personal banking of private citizens and deputize the banks into his own enforcement arm against opinions that are different from his own, can be found at the above link.
