Ezra Levant is in Lethbridge, Alberta, where four men facing serious charges from the 2022 Coutts border blockade are having a hearing today. The men have been detained for over 500 days and are facing conspiracy to commit murder charges.
The four were first arrested after a police raid on the Coutts blockade on February 15, 2022. Rebel News reporter Sydney Fizzard has been following the case, most recently providing an update on issues surrounding publication bans and disclosure in the case.
The blockade protest came to an end shortly after the group's arrest. Public Order Emergency Commissioner Paul Rouleau found the protest in Coutts merited Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's decision to invoke the Emergencies Act in response to the demonstration, along with the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa.
