(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s administration joked about using bank freezes to effect the destruction of innocent citizens’ finances—including those of a struggling, single mother, the Post Millennial reported.
Last week, Trudeau imposed Emergency Orders, which included the arbitrary freezing of bank accounts to punish citizens for supporting the Canadian Freedom Convoy.
Following the tyrannical sanctions, reports emerged of barely-connected Canadians being severely punished, according to InfoWars.
Briane is a single mom from Chilliwack working a minimum wage job. 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.

“Briane is a single mom from Chilliwack working a minimum wage job,” Canadian MP Mark Strahl tweeted.
“She gave $50 to the convoy when it was 100% legal,” he added. “She hasn’t participated in any other way. Her bank account has now been frozen.”
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland ridiculed those whose bank accounts she froze, suggesting that if they’d like their money back, they must stop supporting the peaceful protest that she and others made “illegal” after it had already started.

“The way to get your account unfrozen is to stop being part of the blockade and occupation,” she said.
In partnership with large financial institutions, the Canadian police force has worked to identify and punish those connected with the to the formerly legal convoy.
“The [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] has given to the financial institutions names of leaders and organizers of the protest and of people whose trucks were part of occupations and blockades. that is the only information, according to the RCMP, that the RCMP has given to financial institutions,” she said.
