A convoy finance timeline
As the parliamentary review committee continues its work and we get closer to the start date for the mandated inquiry, I thought it would be useful to consider a timeline of key events. This is a tool I often use to “sort” datapoints for analysis. In this case, I think it’s a useful tool, particularly when we think about effects and outcomes of the emergency measures applied against the financing of the convoy.
Need some background on the convoy? Here’s everything I’ve written to date:
The original crowdfunding campaign was launched on 14 January by Tamara Lich. The campaign attracted a fair bit of attention from the get-go, managing to raise more than $2 million in its first ten days of operations.
However, after the 23rd of January, the campaign picks up serious steam and starts to raise over $1 million per day in advance of the convoy’s arrival in Ottawa on the 28th of January.
