The trial of Tamara Lich and Chris Barber continues on day 10 today in Ottawa. As two of the most prominent faces of the Freedom Convoy, Lich and co-accused Chris Barber are facing charges of mischief, obstructing police, counselling others to commit mischief, and intimidation. The Freedom Convoy demonstrations drew thousands of Canadians to Ottawa in early 2022 in opposition to COVID-19 restrictions.

Rebel News reporter Robert Kraychik is once again reporting from inside the Ottawa courthouse and will be providing live updates. Videographer Lincoln Jay is also on the scene to cover all of the reactions and commentary from outside the courthouse.

Tamara Lich's defence is questioning the admissibility of upcoming testimony from eight Ottawa residents. The defence claims these people do not have specific enough details of being negatively impacted by the protests.

The judge has made it clear that she will not be accepting testimony lacking specific and essential details.

Robert Kraychik provided a quick update from outside the courthouse in Ottawa.

Tamara Lich's lawyer Lawrence Greenspon spoke with Kraychik briefly about the trial.

Watch a full recap of day nine 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.
