Imagine if this happened to violent BLM rioters. Leftists would be outraged. But fascism against their critics is perfectly ok.
Dean Blundell was amongst the human trash doxing peaceful freedom loving donators.
The director of communications in the Ontario ministry responsible for enforcing the law is out of a job after she was tied to a $100 donation supporting the convoy blockading Ottawa streets.
(name redacted) is among several government staffers and associates under scrutiny after their names or identifying information were found in a pair of leaks of some 100,000 donations to American crowdfunding website GiveSendGo.
For the communications director to be financially supporting an unlawful, illegal occupation is definitely concerning,” said NDP MPP Catherine Fife.
“Who was donating, why were they donating, and did this contribute to the non-action that happened on the ground in Ottawa?” she said.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s spokesperson Ivana Yelich did not elaborate in a brief statement to reporters.
“X no longer works for the Ontario government,” Yelich said. “We are not commenting any further as this is a staffing matter.”
They worked as a political staffer as recently as Sunday for Ontario’s Solicitor-General, the position that oversees police and other law enforcement in Ontario.
The $100 donation was listed as anonymous on GiveSendGo, but in a pair of leaked documents totalling nearly 100,000 donations, one line reads “M.R.” with an email address that contains their name.
Also in the data is an employee of the federal correctional service and the name of another Ontario government employee. The latter only said, “No comment” when contacted on the phone by CTV News Toronto.
A pollster with ties to the governing Progressive Conservative party was accused in an NDP news release of donating, as a line in the spreadsheet includes his email and name. But in a response to CTV News Toronto, the pollster denied donating.
Even small donors to the blockade, should they continue donating, run the risk of frozen bank accounts, due to the federal government’s invocation of the Emergencies Act, said Toronto lawyer Nainesh Kotak.
“Under this enactment I would suggest the government could freeze bank accounts if they chose to do so,” he said. “That’s concerning. The targets should be the bigger players.”
Kotak said he believes that the government had the tools to deal with the protest earlier, but didn’t. Now, revoking insurance or auto-related fines could take away the livelihood of anyone using those trucks for a long period, he said.
“We’ve gone from zero enforcement to using a bazooka,” he said. “These are extraordinary steps.”
