American crowdfunding site GiveSendGo is defending its decision to host a fundraiser for the Ottawa convoy protest, telling a parliamentary committee Thursday that the Canadian government never asked it to stop.

The site’s spokespeople also told MPs that it would host fundraisers for the Proud Boys or the Ku Klux Klan if what they were planning to do with the money was legal.

Jacob Wells and Heather Wilson, siblings and co-founders of the site, told MPs it’s important to defend freedom of speech.

“We believe deeply, to the core of our being, that the suppression of speech is much more dangerous than speech itself,” said Wells.
