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.
