A list of top donors to the anti-vaccine "Freedom Convoy" reviewed by PressProgress suggests the convoy received significant chunks of money from wealthy business people and incorporated businesses.

The convoy, which is spending its third weekend occupying the streets of downtown Ottawa, raised over $10 million through GoFundMe before it was shut down on February 4 for violating the platform's Terms of Service prohibiting the "promotion of violence and harassment."

Many of the wealthy donors that bankrolled the so-called "Freedom Convoy" say they stand behind their donations. Some want to see a change in government while others warn the occupation could be Canada's last hope before "civil war."
