During his recent visit to Sudbury, dissatisfied Canadian protesters yelled at Justin Trudeau that he is “nothing but a communist pig” and that he should release political prisoners.
Protesters chanted “go back to China” and called Trudeau “disgusting” for his treatment of political prisoners in Canada, a direct reference to Tamara Lich of the Freedom Convoy, who was recently re-arrested for allegedly breaking her bail terms.
You can hear Trudeau yelling back, “You had your 20 seconds!” before shrugging and walking away.
Mean while in Ottawa at the court house on Friday, The Post Millennial’s Beth Baisch was on scene to record Tamara Lich supporters expressing their support and chanting “Shame!” after Lich was denied bail. One protester is heard shouting “Why can’t they arrest Justin Trudeau?”
Tamara is one of the Freedom Convoy organizers which lead thousands of demonstrators to descend on Ottawa last winter to protest Covid-19 mandates.
Instead of talking to Canadians, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went into divisive mode to drive a wedge “Individuals are trying to blockade our economy, our democracy, and our fellow citizens’ daily lives. It has to stop.”
Justin Trudeau lost control of the whole situation and on February 14, 2022 in a never before move invoked the Emergencies Act to put and end to the Freedom Convoy protest. Police were ordered to crack down on the protest and were deployed in full riot gear with armored vehicles. On February 17, 2022, Tamara Lich was arrested and held without bail.
Tamara Lich told fellow protesters to “hold the line” as she was being arrested. She was charged with violating Criminal Code section 464 for having counselled mischief: the obstruction, interruption and interference with the use and enjoyment of property.
Lich spent 18 days in jail for a non violent offence and peacefully cooperating with police. She was then released and told it’s a violation of her bail if she criticizes Covid-19 mandates or the Canadian government.
In May Tamara won and accepted a Freedom Award then a Crown prosecutor argued she had breached her bail conditions because she accepted the Freedom Award and pleaded she be sent back to jail. The request to return Lich back to jail was denied.
Tamara was then arrested again, this time in Alberta while a breaking update from Rebel News came out on June 27, 2022 “”Tamara Lich’s lawyer, Keith Wilson, told Rebel News that the police informed her they are keeping her for 6 days, until she can be transported to Ontario,” Rebel News reports.”
The Crown, represented by Moiz Karimjee, claimed that Lich had broken the terms of her bail by standing next to Freedom Convoy participant Tom Marazzo after she gave her acceptance speech at the Justice Centre’s yearly George Jonas Freedom Award dinner in Toronto on June 16, 2022. This led to her denial of bail on Friday.
