Canadian banks will receive the names of people involved in “Freedom Convoy” protests that have descended on the nation’s capital, a first step in a promised financial crackdown on demonstrators being instituted by the far-left government of Justin Trudeau.
Bloomberg reports the Canadian Bankers Association confirmed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has alerted banks to a list of names and made it available.
The institutions are reportedly still seeking clarity from law enforcement on how to handle the alleged protesters’ accounts, according to people familiar with the matter. But Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said some accounts have already been frozen, the news outlet reported.
Under the Emergencies Act invoked by this week by Trudeau, law enforcement officials have the ability to arrest people for obstruction of roadways and disruptive behaviour within a no-go exclusion zone. They also have the power to seize vehicles and freeze the same bank accounts.

Orwell was just scratching the surface....
Of course the emergency wars powers are only to protect the nation in times of great danger, but never to seize the property, assets, and livelihoods of dissidents for the purpose of political oppression. Of course not! It’s Canada!
I’m just dying to see what Canada’s Freedom Index will be next year.
The US and Canada will probably be in a race to the bottom, but I definitely think that Canada is winning.
OMG, that’s awesome!

“1984” came late, but it came with a vengeance, fueled by technology.
Justin Castro is no longer a wannabe dictator. He is a dictator! You are only allowed to protest what the government deems acceptable. Geez, this is like the China that he admires so much.
If you personally know one of these truckers, reach out and help
The little dicktaster will regret this.
Just imagine what AOC would be doing if she were in the White House. We’re seeing that now.
Governments seizing bank accounts of their political opponents could ultimately crash the world banking institution. Maybe that’s part of the plan.
I think that Canada’s government falls late next week. Trudeau really stepped in the sh*t today when his gestapo on horseback trampled peaceful protestors and killed an elderly woman with a walker. Trudeau’s fat is in the fire now.
Trudeau is the most hated man in all the western world.
Talk about loss of freedom. Good thing Canadians have a 2nd Amendment in case things go too far.
