David Lametti, Canada justice minister, threatens to seize ‘pro-Trump’ people’s bank accounts

Canada’s high justice minister mentioned Thursday that “pro-Trump” individuals ought to worry having their bank accounts seized.

Attorney General David Lametti was requested on CTV’s “Power Play” program whether or not individuals who had donated to the trucker convoy that has paralyzed Canada’s capital and borders may have accounts seized.

The administration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked emergency powers this week and mentioned it might go after funding sources for the protesters, whom it has repeatedly in contrast to Nazis, terrorists and racists. The declaration of emergency requires “any financial service provider to determine whether they have in their possession or control property that belongs to a person who participates in the blockade.”

Host Evan Solomon requested Mr. Lametti that “a lot of folks said, ‘I just don’t like your vaccine mandates and I donated to this, now it’s illegal, should I be worried that the bank can freeze my account?’”

Mr. Lametti, who has simply made a terrorism cost in opposition to the protesters, replied within the affirmative and in addition talked about former U.S. President Donald Trump as related.

“If you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars, and millions of dollars to this kind of thing, then you ought to be worried,” he mentioned.
