Five major Canadian banks went offline on Wednesday evening, just days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau threatened to impose a state of emergency to block the verification accounts of “Freedom Conway” participants. Technology website Bleeding computer.
The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), BMO (Bank of Montreal), Scotiabank, TD Bank of Canada and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) were all hit by unexplained failures on Wednesday evening. Users began to report problems at around 1600-1700 ET banks, Downtector data showed.
