Tamara Lich, one of the organizers of February's Freedom Convoy to Ottawa, will remain behind bars until July 5 after she was arrested for allegedly breaching bail conditions.
Lich was detained by police in Medicine Hat, Alberta earlier this week and is being transferred to Ottawa ahead of a hearing in front of a judge.
A number of United Conservative Party candidates running to replace outgoing Premier Jason Kenney in Alberta weighed in on Lich's most recent arrest yesterday, including interim Finance Minister Jason Nixon, now-independent MLA Todd Loewen, former Wildrose leader Danielle Smith, Grand Prairie-Wapiti MLA Todd Toews and early front runner Brian Jean.
Lich's lawyer, Keith Wilson, joined The Ezra Levant Show earlier this week to explain why his client had been arrested.
Protests are expected to take place in Ottawa this weekend, with the city undergoing security preparations in advance of Canada Day.
