Freedom Convoy Canada 2022
In January 2022, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that truck drivers crossing into Canada would have to be fully vaccinated. In response, some truckers organized a convoy to Ottawa. A project was created with the claim of raising money for fuel and food for the convoy. On February 4, 2022, GoFundMe announced the fundraiser had been removed from the platform for violating terms of service, specifically “violence and other unlawful activity”.

It’s nicknamed “GoFraudMe” for a reason. I donate my hard-earned money to legitimate nonprofits that I’ve researched.
