(LifeSiteNews) – A Saskatchewan farmer who said his bank accounts were frozen because of a $500 donation he made to the Freedom Convoy’s GiveSendGo page has been offered free legal help from a top Canadian constitutional legal firm.

According to the Western Standard, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) is offering to pick up the tab for the farmer, who has chosen to keep his name secret for fear of more reprisals from authorities.

JCCF Communications Director Marie Cathcart said as reported in the Western Standard that they will “will represent at no charge, individuals who have donated to the convoy and suffered a financial freeze on their accounts as a result.”

Cathcart noted that any legal action for the Saskatchewan farmer would be only focused against “the government” and would be “separate from his lawyer going after TD Bank.”

The farmer did hire a lawyer initially to help him resolve the issue with his bank. He said the entire situation has left him feeling powerless.

According to the Western Standard, the farmer says he will consider taking the JCCF up on their offer, if his accounts are not unfrozen soon, but noted he does not want “people to really know who the hell I am.”

“The mainstream media has identified some of the people that have donated and they’re getting harassed,” said the farmer.

The farmer expressed outrage at TD Bank, saying they shouldn’t be “following the Government of Canada’s illegal seizures.”

He also said once his TD Bank accounts are unfrozen, he will close them.

He also said that the Freedom Convoy truckers have a good cause in fighting against COVID jab mandates.

The farmer had donated to the Freedom Convoy’s GiveSendGo page after the group’s original GoFundMe page was canceled on February 4.

He said days after donating, both his personal and business bank accounts were “frozen,” and he was not able to make any kinds of financial transactions.

The ordeal has the farmer thinking about “moving away out of Canada.”

On Wednesday, Canada’s Minister of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland admitted the reason some Freedom Convoy supporters’ bank accounts were frozen under the Emergencies Act (EA) was to “convince” them to “listen to reason.”

She then said that some accounts will stay locked while promising others would be unfrozen.

The EA had allowed the government the power to freeze anyone’s bank account associated with the convoy without a court order. It proceeded to put a block on several accounts.

However, in a report that came out today, Senator Marc Gold, who is tied to the Liberal Party of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, admitted that he suspects it is “probably not the case” that some accounts have been unfrozen.

“I can’t answer definitively,” Gold said when Senator David Wells asked if he could say if all the bank accounts had been unfrozen.

On Wednesday, Trudeau announced that he was ending the EA, saying “the situation is no longer an emergency.”

Trudeau took the unprecedented step of invoking the EA on February 14, claiming he needed it to deal with the Freedom Convoy. The demonstrators had been in Ottawa for the past three weeks protesting COVID mandates.
