A British Columbia member of Parliament detailed on Monday (Feb. 21) how one of his constituents had her bank account frozen by the Canadian government for donating $50 to the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa.
In a tweet, Chilliwack-Hope MP Mark Strahl described the woman as “a single mom from Chilliwack working a minimum wage job” named Briane.
“She gave $50 to the convoy when it was 100% legal. She hasn’t participated in any other way. Her bank account has now been frozen. This is who Justin Trudeau is actually targeting with his Emergencies Act orders,” Strahl said.
This is just one of hundreds, if not thousands, of bank accounts frozen. However, the exact number is unknown because—despite the demands of MPs—Trudeau’s government will not provide further information.

Allegedly, things are going to get much worse with Canadian banks freezing people’s money. Stay grounded, this is not a call to fear. Let information be empowering as opposed to fear raising.
Judge Denies Bail to Freedom Convoy Organizer: “Your Detention is Necessary for the Protection and Safety of the Public”
Tamara Lich, one of the leading organizers behind the Freedom Convoy protest on Parliament Hill arrested over the weekend, was denied bail on Tuesday (Feb. 22) morning.
Lich has been described by fellow organizers as “the spark that lit the fire” of the Freedom Convoy protest.
“I cannot be reassured that if I release you into the community that you will not reoffend,” Ontario Court Justice Julie Bourgeois said.
“Your detention is necessary for the protection and safety of the public.”
Lich faces a charge of mischief, meaning she faces up to 10 years in prison.
“The accused is liable, upon conviction, a lengthy term of imprisonment,” the judge noted.
