An online fund-raising campaign organized by a person associated with the Maverick Party and other western separatist causes now indicates it has raised close to $2 million in the week to bankroll highway disruptions by truckers angry at Ottawa for imposing a vaccine mandate on cross-border essential workers.

The "Freedom Convoy 2022" campaign's GoFundMe page showed donations of $1,911,540 at 9:50 p.m. Saturday. The fund-raising goal was increased at about the same time to $3 million.

When the campaign was reported Friday by TruckNews.com – an online publication associated with a printed trade publication called Today's Trucking – the campaign was closing in on $1 million.
