Medicine Hat: Tamara Lich, Freedom Convoy Leader Arrested In Alberta For Breach Of Bail
A leader of the group known as “Freedom Convoy” has been re-arrested by authorities in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Tamara Lich’s lawyers confirmed the news on Tuesday.
Lich has been taken into police custody on Monday evening. Keith Wilson, Lich’s attorney, says Lich is primarily a defendant in lawsuits, not criminal courts. He is the only person who can confirm or deny any of the allegations made against him by citizen journalists and investigative journalists from around the world.
Wilson, speaking with Lich after her arrest, told her she expects to be transported back to Ottawa in the next week.

With no reason to believe that his client has done anything wrong, Granger is looking at the opportunity to learn more.
Based on the information we knew about her, she’s complying with all of her bail conditions, which was noted by the judge at her recent bail review.
While the illegal bail conditions remain unclear, some speculate that someone might have filed a Facebook complaint against Lich for violating a court order.
Lich was released on bail after being arrested for protesting outside of the Toronto offices of Canada’s Minister of Defense. Lich is not allowed to contact Tom Marazzo, an ex-military officer who had a failed bid as an Ontario MPP candidate. Lich cannot organize any kind of protest while she remains on bail.
Lich was subject to a bail review last month where prosecutors unsuccessfully sought to have her taken back into custody for allegedly violating her bail condition that she not support anything related to the Freedom Convoy. According to reports, prosecutors were unable or unwilling to provide any evidence that Lich had violated this condition and so she was released from custody. This is the latest in a series of unsuccessful attempts by prosecutors to have Lich taken back into custody; however, their efforts will likely continue until they can establish some sort of criminal wrongdoing on her part.
