Freedom Truckers leader Tamara Lich greeted upon returning home from jail The Counter Signal

MEDICINE HAT, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) – Trucker Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich was met with a hero’s welcome upon returning home to Medicine Hat, Alberta, this Saturday. Lich had just spent almost three weeks in jail for opposing the COVID edicts of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s  government before getting bail.  

Video of her arrival posted on Twitter Saturday by Keean Bexte of the Counter Signal shows a large crowd greeting Lich with hugs, tears, as well as an impromptu singing of Canada’s national anthem, “O, Canada.”

Many in the crowd were waving Canadian flags, and some were seen holding signs of support reading “Welcome home Tamara” and “Thank you Tamara.”    

Independent Alberta Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) Drew Barnes for Medicine Hat tweeted his support for Lich coming home, saying “Welcome home Tamara.”  

Last week, an Ontario judge ordered Lich be released on bail but with strict conditions. The decision came after she was earlier denied bail by a judge with ties to the Liberal Party of Canada. 

Lich’s legal counsel, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), said Lich was held in jail on bail because she was a “political prisoner” of Trudeau.  

Although currently out on bail, Lich’s conditions for release ban her from speaking out against the Canadian government’s COVID rules on social media and online and attending any COVID protests. 

Lich had to pay a $20,000 bond for Surety (this is a person who at the request of the court promises to look after the person let out on bail at all times). She also had to pay a $5,000 bond for herself. 

She is to reside at her Alberta house as directed by police, must report to them, and is to have no contact with the co-accused. 

She was arrested on February 17, only two days after Trudeau enacted the Emergencies Act (EA), which he claimed was needed to deal with the Freedom Convoy protesters, who were demanding an end to all COVID mandates.

Trudeau revoked the EA on February 23. 

Lich has no history of any criminal charges from her past, and she was not involved in any violence during the Freedom Convoy. 

The JCCF told LifeSiteNews last week that Lich’s bail conditions violate her constitutional freedoms. 

The JCCF is currently suing the Canadian federal government under Trudeau for its abuse of the EA, which was used to quash the Freedom Convoy. 

Currently, a federal jab mandate for truckers crossing Canada’s border with the U.S. is still in effect, as is a travel ban by air, rail, or sea, for anyone who is not jabbed. 

Many federal government workers lost their jobs last year because they chose not to get the experimental COVID jabs after the Trudeau government mandated all federal workers be jabbed.
