The Canadian government led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is so angry at the Freedom Convoy truckers and their supporters for daring to question his COVID-19 vaccine order that officials are literally implementing ‘payback’ policies that are going to hurt all citizens.
Though Trudeau revoked the emergency authority he assumed earlier this month to crush the Freedom Convoy protest, the damage has already been done to Canadian liberties and the precedent sent.
One of the measures Trudeau’s government used against the protesters and their supporters was to freeze bank accounts so they couldn’t access funds to live. Now, a Canadian institution has adopted a policy that could literally lead to starvation.
“Federal bank @FCCagriculture was compiling blacklist of account holders suspected of sympathizing with #FreedomConvoy. Consequences included suspension of loans,” Canadian journalist Holly Doan reported via Twitter.

Quoting her tweet, Canada-based National Post correspondent Rupa Subramanya added, “Farm Credit had begun compiling a list of names of account holders suspected of involvement with Freedom Convoy protests against vaccine mandates. Consequences for customers named in police blacklists included suspension of loans.”

Translated: The Canadian agricultural finance system is moving to deny loans to farmers, which means there will be less food production — which will produce higher food prices, lower food availability and higher food insecurity.
Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face: What sense does that make?
None, of course. It’s just the Trudeau government’s latest petty move to punish political opponents of the regime, only, it’s going to affect the whole of the country.
Responses to Subramanya’s post indicated similar sentiments.
“Sorry you can’t grow food any more because you donated to the people who get your food to market when they asked you to” doesn’t sound like “freedom.”

Banks cancelling farms / trucks loans for exercising their freedoms…hmmm looks and smells like Germany 1936. pic.twitter.com/avn2GsqzPk

Good move, remove the hope of people, you make them berserkers. People without hope are dangerous, ie see them going to the homes of RCMP/Liberals and butchering them. I am not condoning, just pointing out the stupidity of Trudeau and the elite. Cities have about 3 days of food.

Of course truckers who park in the wrong place and honk their horns are immediately excised from the financial system…https://t.co/fSCXSzYwzj

Interesting that truckers have more liability than big Pharma? ?

Fair enough. Don’t do business with them then. Roll on decentralised lending and an end to the monopoly of the compromised elites

Great way to generate confidence in the banking system when disagreements on policy results in government financial attacks

Truckers haul food. Truckers haul supplies. They will have the last word. ????

The government of Canada has quickly become despotic, but only Canadians can take it back.
