Freedom Convoy spokesperson says bank apologized
A spokesperson for the Freedom Convoy protest, Benjamin Dichter, said he received an apology from the office of the CEO of Scotiabank Brian Porter. This was in response to freezing his bank account during the convoy. In the letter Dichter said Porter apologized for the “frustration and inconvenience this situation may have caused and thank you for your patience while we prepared our response.” Banks can be obliged to freeze accounts, under the legal directives of police who feel that perpetrators may be engaged in criminal investigations. The accounts of hundreds of protesters were ordered frozen February 14th when the Trudeau Liberals imposed the Emergencies Act in response to the trucker protest in Ottawa.
