GiveSendGo CFO Jacob Wells says he was shocked by misinformation spread by NDP MP Matthew Green.

His comments follow his testimony at the Special Joint Committee on the Declaration of the Emergencies Act earlier this month. 

“This is the second time I’ve appeared before a parliamentary committee up there, and the lack of factual accuracy around some of the statements from parliamentary members is just astounding to me,” Wells told The Counter Signal

“Absolute mischaracterizations or outright lies and mistruths around events and things that happened, so it was very interesting. I tried to keep my composure,” he continued.

During the hearing, Green attempted to discredit the Christian crowdfunding platform by claiming it supported malicious actors. For example, Green said the platform hosted a fundraiser for January 6 protesters who later murdered a police officer. 

No police officers died during the January 6 Capitol riot. One police officer, Brian Sicknick, died one to two days later of natural causes, as per an autopsy. Several mainstream media outlets had falsely stated Sicknick was murdered during the Capitol riot.

Green’s statement confused the CFO, who asked the Canadian MP for clarification.

“Was an officer not murdered?” Geen said. “I’m sorry, sir, I’m not from the United States.” 

Wells said it was his understanding that no officers were killed.

“Well, perhaps we have better access to your media than you do,” Green replied.

Wells said that he wished he’d corrected Green on the spot. 

“What I should have done in hindsight is broke it all down and said, ‘That’s not true and here’s what the truth is. You’re repeating lies again.’” 

Green also called Kyle Rittenhouse, a young American man exonerated by courts for killing two Black Lives Matter rioters, a “multiple serial killer.” 

Wells said it’s “pretty ridiculous” that a member of parliament can make “such outrageous claims like that and defame somebody.”

“That statement was a complete disrespect to the American judicial system that found Kyle not guilty of being a serial killer — that found him innocent,” he added.
