On last night’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra was joined by Tamara Lich, the Freedom Convoy organizer and author of Hold The Line: My Story from the Heart of the Freedom Convoy.

Ezra brought up how support for Tamara hasn't slowed down, even now that it’s been a year and a half since the Freedom Convoy.

“Yes, I think with the evidence that came out at the Public Order Emergency Commission and the more evidence, I think more people are waking up and becoming more aware as to what's really going on,” she said.

Ezra mentioned how Tamara’s book hasn’t even been mentioned by the mainstream media, although it reached number one on Amazon’s bestseller list on the first day of its release:

“I still can't believe that the CBC, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, even the National Post have not even mentioned your book even to criticize it. They have book sections, why won't they talk about your book even to disparage it? Well, I don't think they want to bring any attention to it.”

Ezra asked Tamara how she was able to stay so positive and kind while she was imprisoned and on the receiving end of so much hate from the media. She responded:

I often talk about how for me, a lot of this has been like a divine journey, a divine adventure. And I just recognized the things that were inadvertently exposed byproducts of the convoy, you know, like the mainstream media, the banking systems, the corruption and corporations like GoFundMe government, all levels of government. And I just felt like that was divine, you know, and so when I got arrested, I just felt like, OK, you have more work for me to do. 

And you know, I prayed a lot, my mantra was 'thy will, not my will'... yeah, I was raised Christian. I also have my native spirituality. And yes, and I've done energy healing and stuff like that. So I have a really nice hybrid of beliefs that, that really work for me, a kind of a combination of all of them, and at the core of all of them is love.

And if there's one thing I've learned out of this whole thing, I've developed very thick skin. And so, you know, to me, it just comes down to being respectful and even if they're not going to respect me in return, I can say that I've done my best.
