Ottawa convoy protest organizer Tamara Lich denied bail

Judge was not convinced she would go home and follow conditions

Tamara Lich, a major organizer of the so-called Freedom Convoy, was denied bail Tuesday morning in Ottawa.

Lich, the Alberta woman behind a now-halted GoFundMe campaign that raised over $10 million to support the protest in Ottawa, was arrested and charged Thursday with counselling to commit mischief.

Before her arrest, she told journalists she wasn't concerned about being arrested, didn't think the protest was illegal and also said her bank account was frozen.

On Tuesday, the judge said she was not convinced Lich would go home, stay there and stop her alleged counselling. She's scheduled to be back in court March 2.

I think the judge is correct, she would not follow any bail conditions.

1. In Louisville Kentucky, she could shoot a Democratic mayor candidate and still get bail

We should treat criminals here like they do in Ottawa

2. Well, another one of the leaders was given bail so...

it isn't necessarily consistent. I think none of the so-called 'protest' leaders should get bail. Let them be 'inconvenienced' by sitting in a jail cell after all they were only 'inconveniencing' the citizens of Ottawa by their illegal actions.
