(Natural News) Justin Trudeau’s regime has reportedly sent an order to Canada’s federal police force demanding that all FINTRAC-regulated companies in the country immediately stop transacting with 34 cryptocurrency wallets associated with the ongoing Freedom Convoy in Ottawa.
In retaliation against the protesters defying his Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) mandates, Trudeau decided to block these specific digital currency wallets from transacting because they are believed to have been sending funds to help support the movement.
According to The Counter Signal, which says it obtained exclusive information about this development, at least one of the wallets contains more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin and is said to be part of the HonkHonkHodl campaign that is supporting truckers with crypto.
“Whether this demand from police will hamper access to the funds is still unclear,” writes Keean Bexte.
This move by Trudeau is extraordinary in that he did it using self-prescribed emergency powers. These powers were not intended for this purpose, and the way he is applying them is clearly political.
“The Ontario Provincial Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police are currently investigating cryptocurrency donations being collected in relation to illegal acts falling under the scope of the Emergency Measures Act,” the RCMP order reads.
“Pursuant to the Emergency Economic Measures Order, under subsection 19(1) of the Emergencies Act, there is a duty to cease facilitating any transactions pertaining to the following cryptocurrency address(es).”
Listed are 29 Bitcoin addresses, 2 Ethereum addresses, and 1 wallet each of Cardano, Monero and Litecoin. Each of the wallets has transacted anywhere from $0 to $1.1 million worth of digital assets.
“Any information about a transaction or proposed transaction in respect of these address(es) is to be disclosed immediately to the Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at [email protected],” the RCMP plea goes on to state.
Who are they kidding? The Canadian government has no control over private crypto wallets
As authoritarian as this might sound, the reality is that neither Trudeau nor the RCMP have any way to control these crypto wallets as they are private and far outside the reach of the Canadian government.

That is the whole point of crypto, after all: to keep currency and digital assets far, far away from tyrants who can only dream about controlling it in the same way they control fake fiat currencies like the U.S. or Canadian dollars.
“Assuming the assets were stored outside of a regulated Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, the assets could easily be distributed to a ‘mixer,’ an online tool that clouds the ability of law enforcement to identify Bitcoin of interest,” Bexte explains.
Try as he might to stop free speech, Trudeau is fighting a losing battle by trying to put Pandora back into the box. Canadians are mad, and so are Americans, and they want their freedoms back.
“Trudeau is becoming a modern-day Stalin or Hitler,” wrote a reader at Natural News. “Canadians kept him in the recall and now it’s affecting everyone. He’s a ruthless dictator.”
“Trudeau mandated vaccines, truckers refused delivery, and Trudeau blames the truckers,” wrote another. “That’s like someone tries to rob a bank, the security guard refuses to open the vault, and the bank robbers blame the security guard.”
Concerning the workers who are not able to work because of the blockades, another person suggested that they should join the truckers since they probably will not be going back to work any time soon.
“Freedom is NOT FREE,” this person wrote. “You must pay a price to have it.”
