An Ontario judge has ruled that Tamara Lich, a high-profile organizer of the “Freedom Convoy” protest, be released from jail following a bail review.
The judge found that the previous judge who denied Lich bail made errors in law. The Alberta resident is being released on $25,000 in bonds and must leave Ottawa within 24 hours and Ontario within 72 hours.
Lich was arrested Feb. 17 and has remained in custody after initially being denied bail. Lich spearheaded a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the convoy, which was shut down after raising more than $10 million. The Medicine Hat, Alta. native is charged with counselling to commit mischief.
