OTTAWA, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — The $9.8 million lawsuit brought against the truckers’ Freedom Convoy has now ballooned to $306 million.

Originally filed by 21-year-old Ottawa civil servant Zexi Li on February 4, 2022, the class action suit now names plaintiffs who have businesses or had employment in the Canadian capital city’s downtown core. According to the February 17 filing, all the plaintiffs are being represented by Ottawa litigation lawyers Champ & Associates.

The defendants listed include Convoy organizers Chris Barber, Benjamin Dichter, and Tamara Lich, as well as dozens of others.

The updated order now includes a Mareva Injunction, which means that the defendants are not free to sell, give away or otherwise dispose of their assets. A lawyer for the litigants, Paul Champ, emphasized this part of the document in a tweet he posted last night.

Champ also drew attention to the unprecedented freezing of the Freedom Convoy’s cryptocurrency, saying that it was “exceptional advocacy” on the part of Toronto’s Lenczner Slaght litigation team.

According to the state-funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Champ told media his team is going to begin to add defendants who donated to the truckers. The Ottawa Citizen reported today that the “the claim has also expanded to include anyone who donated to the convoy after Feb. 4.”
