FINTRAC Destroys Liberals’ Narrative – Convoy Funding Not “Terrorism” Or “Money Laundering”

Written By Daniel Bordman, Posted on March 1, 2022

The great lie around the invocation of the Emergencies Act was totally shattered in testimony before the House of Commons finance committee. Barry MacKillop, deputy director of FINTRAC (Canada’s financial monitoring agency) testified under oath that financial support for the Freedom Convoy 2022 organization came from everyday Canadians fed up with COVID restrictions and was not terrorism or money laundering.

MacKillop at one point stated on the issue of non-Canadians funding the convoy that:

There were people around the world who were fed up with Covid and were upset and saw the demonstrations…I believe they just wanted to support the cause.

This means that FINTRAC had seen no evidence that ‘foreign interests’ were providing support to the Freedom Convoy, which the media had been trying to imply was the case over the past several weeks.

Barry MacKillop.

Although this might have seemed self-evident from the outset, this was actually the justification the government used to invoke the Emergencies Act. It should also be noted that during this period Trudeau and Freeland collaborated with the banks to seize the assets of peaceful protestors without a court warrant or any charges being laid. Police also had the ability to perform arbitrary arrests.

The Emergencies Act was rescinded two days after it passed the House of Commons, likely due to its heavy unpopularity politically and the fact that Canadians lost faith in the banks as a secure place to hold their money leading to a bank run costing the major banks in the stock market.

Even though all the underlying arguments against the Freedom Convoy and in favour of emergency powers have been thoroughly debunked the Liberal government is still pushing to expand its financial powers into its everyday arsenal. This is why many including the Canadian Civil Liberties Association considered the invocation of the Emergencies Act to be dangerous long-term, due to its normalization of government overreach.

    A bridge too far for Justin Castro and Crystia Goebbels. Thank you Senate for seeing the power grab by the Commulibs!

  2. Dustin says:

    Now release the money and give it back to the truckers and take the liberal party to court for deformation of character and slander.

  3. B says:

    Then release the funds to the People it was donated to by love people that care – it was there money to give and their right to give to anyone they want – release it all now – you got not rights to donations – be honest in your hearts – do the right thing and not steal – that’s not given to you

  4. Ina says:

    We want Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland arrested and charged with Crimes Against Humanity. Also we want an END to The 2030 Great Reset.

  5. Suzanne Hilts says:

    Justin Castro has some serious explaining to do with regards to the newly released Pfizer documents. These documents are horrific to read and terrifying to think of the mass devastation awaiting all of us.

  6. ted may says:

    Turns out we had a pandemic of coercion, corruption, collusion, fraud, racketeering, extortion and assault…nothing to do with health, safety, science or medicine.

  7. Allan Ray Bear says:

    Allan Bear. How can anyone donate to any cause in the future? Long after you donate Trudeau may consider he doesn’t like the cause and freeze your Bank account.

  8. Petra Marinkovic says:

    I have completely lost confidence in the Canadian Banking System and the Canadian Government. They have shown that they do not care about Canadian’s. They did enough damage with all their Covid restrictions.

  9. Kelly says:

    The Canadian people want the liberals charged with crimes against humanity. Surely some of you must have at least looked at the Pfizer documents that have been released and realized how dangerous those jabs are and the cost is human lives. Since Justin Trudeau has a large investment in the BC company that created the lipid nano particles that allowed the jabs to work that is also a conflict of interest.

  10. Jim Downey says:

    Justin Trudeau and his goons should all be put in jail for this

  11. William says:

    He has taken interest other than Canadians. He admires China’s Dictatorship and practices it well. Trudeau has now joined forces with NDP supporting Crime Minister Justinflation Trudeau until 2025. We as Canadians will not survive that amount of time. Look at the damage he has caused in two years over a false Narrative of a Pandemic Flu no worse than the common flu. Mandates, fearmongering and lies kept us inline and unknowing. What happened to the trial and investigation into the Sherman’s murder. Trudeau may have been implicated but he shut down the court system for covid. Covid ‘s over brother and sisters and we all know it.
