The criminal trial of “Freedom Convoy” organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber begins today in Ottawa as they answer to charges related to their roles in the protests that caused chaos in the nation’s capital early last year.

Lich (pictured) and Barber were part of the original group that mobilized a convoy of big rigs and other trucks and cars to drive to the nation’s capital in winter 2022 to protest COVID-19 public health restrictions and the governing Trudeau Liberals.

Hundreds of vehicles blocked downtown streets and thousands of protesters entrenched themselves for three weeks, hosting all-night parties with open fires, honking their horns at all hours and filling streets with the smell of diesel.

Lich became a figurehead of the protest movements as well as the person responsible for handling millions of dollars in donations.

If convicted on all charges Lich and Barber could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
