Freedom Convoy fundraiser and organizer Tamara Lich was arrested and detained over her role in the freedom convoy.
An initial ruling forced her to continue to be detained – a separate judge overruled the ruling allowing her to be released on bail.
Tamara Lich has been ordered to leave Ottawa within 24 hours and must return home to Medicine Hat, Alta., under the watchful supervision of a surety after she was released from custody Monday afternoon with a list of strict bail conditions.
Lich, 49, sat with her hands folded in her lap in the prisoner’s box as Superior Court Justice John Johnston read his ruling to overturn the Feb. 22 lower-court decision and grant bail to Lich, one of the most visible and vocal accused leaders of the so-called “Freedom Convoy.”
Johnston found that the previous judge who ordered Lich detained made “errors in law” that impacted her decision.
Lich’s Ottawa-based lawyer, Diane Magas, mounted a court challenge of the earlier decision by Ontario Court Justice Julie Bourgeois, who had denied Lich bail on the grounds she presented a “substantial risk to reoffend.”
She was welcomed home by a massive crowd – showing the support that still exists for the convoy.
