Someone Inform Mathieu Fleury Citizens Do Not Have To Pay To Protest

Ottawa City Councilor Mathieu Fleury had the bright idea of seizing the Freedom Convoy 's GoFundMe account so Ottawa wouldn't be left “holding the bag” on the protests.

Protest is not a fee-for-service proposition. Ottawa and the Canadian government have a simple means to contain the costs: meet with the truckers and address their grievances.

Mathieu Fleury, however, probably is unwilling to propose such a democratic solution. Since tweeting out his idea he's locked down his Twitter account…too late!
