A GoFundMe campaign that was organized to support the Canadian truckers demonstration and which has raised more than $10million CAD was suspended on Wednesday night

‘This fundraiser is currently paused and under review to ensure it complies with our terms of service and applicable laws and regulations,’ the page stated.

‘Our team is working 24/7 and doing all we can to protect both organizers and donors. Thank you for your patience.’

Videos released from the nation’s capital showed the protesters delivering food to the homeless as crowds cheered and waived flags.

Ottawa’s chief of police Peter Sloly on Wednesday, said his force of 1,500 officers cannot clear the city and may need the help of the nation’s military.

‘This is a national issue, not an Ottawa issue,’ Sloly said. ‘I am increasingly concerned there is no policing solution to this.

‘There is no lawful authority to seal a city. There’s no practical capability to seal a city of this size,’ Sloly explained.

‘We do not want riots, but all options remain on the table,’ he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has re-emereged  after going into isolation on Jan. 27 when  one of his children tested positive for Covid, said the federal government is working with the Ottawa police to put an end to the protest

‘We will continue to work with law enforcement agencies to ensure that people are protected and to ensure that this protest, which is now becoming illegal, does come to an end,’ Trudeau said in French in the House of Commons on Wednesday, when asked what the federal government is doing to remove truckers from downtown Ottawa.
