Fundraising website GoFundMe has been called to testify at the House of Commons Public Safety and National Security Committee about what safeguards it has in place when it comes to releasing the nearly $10.1M of funds raised for the trucker convoy.

MPs on the committee voted unanimously on Thursday afternoon to invite representatives to appear "as soon as possible," after NDP MP and public safety critic Alistair MacGregor proposed the study during a meeting.

What the elected officials want to hear from the company includes how it plans to ensure that the funds are "not being used to promote extremism, white supremacy, anti-Semitism and other forms of hate, which have been expressed among prominent organizers for the truck convoy currently in Ottawa."
