According to a report in foreign media on January 23th, the Canadian truckers’ 1-29 Capitol Hill Protest Movement called “Freedom Convoy 2022” has raised over C$3 million in just over a week.
The organizer of the demonstration is Tamara Lich from Alberta. The demonstration aims to protest the Trudeau government’s regulations on vaccination, testing and quarantine of truck drivers on the Canadian-American border. The measure went into effect on January 15. The money raised will go toward fuel, food and lodging for the protesters. As of 9:30 p.m. Sunday, about 39,000 people had made donations. There were dozens of donations in the thousands of dollars, including two large donations of $10,000.
James Bauder, a supporter from Calgary, said that in addition to protesting restrictions on truckers, they are also protesting mandatory masks, vaccine passports, and the endless closure of businesses. He believes the healthcare industry has become highly politicized. The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) released a statement Sunday encouraging truckers to legally protest on Capitol Hill in Ottawa. As of press time, the earmarked donation was close to C$4 million.
