The trial of Tamara Lich and Chris Barber  two of the most well-known faces of the Freedom Convoy — enters day four today in Ottawa. The Freedom Convoy demonstrations drew thousands of Canadians to Ottawa in early 2022 in opposition to strict COVID-19 restrictions.

An Ottawa Police Service (OPS) officer who responded to the Freedom Convoy protests in an intelligence capacity is expected to testify today.

The judge presiding over the trial expressed her disapproval with the prosecution's attempt to add more evidence during day four of the trial. She admitted that it compromises the defence's ability to respond.

The judge and prosecution have a "disagreement" about "hearsay circumstantial evidence."

The prosecution played video of Freedom Convoy volunteer Tom Marazzo, in which he emphasized the need to remain peaceful.

You can watch a full recap of day three of the trial below:

Support Tamara's Legal Defense

The Democracy Fund, a Canadian charity, is supporting Tamara Lich by crowdfunding her legal bills. The cost of expert legal representation is $300,000, which Tamara, an ordinary mom and grandma from Medicine Hat, Alberta, cannot afford. But we have a secret weapon: Lawrence Greenspon, one of Ottawa's top lawyers, is on Tamara's side. Lawrence is accustomed to handling complex and serious cases, but his team is expensive — and they are worth every penny. If you can, please chip in to help cover Tamara's legal fees.
