(Linkedin News) - GoFundMe has suspended a fundraiser for the “Freedom Convoy” of truckers and their supporters who are protesting vaccine mandates and other public health restrictions. The group raised over $10 million through the fundraising site, which is now under review "to ensure it complies with our terms of service and applicable laws and regulations," according to a GoFundMe post. The protest remains ongoing, albeit in smaller number, in Ottawa and across the country.
- Ottawa residents and businesses have asked for action to end the convoy’s occupation of the city’s downtown.
- Protestors have blocked a key border crossing to the U.S. in Southern Alberta, but agreed to allow one lane on each side to open.
- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the protest in Ottawa is “now becoming illegal” and that the federal government is working with police.
