Pro IQRA News Updates.

Tamara Lich and Chris Barber – two of the main organizers of the so-called “Freedom Convoy – are expected to go on trial in September 2023 on charges related to the massive protest that gripped downtown Ottawa earlier this year.

The convoy blocked roads with big rigs and other vehicles for three weeks as the city descended into what many officials described as a state of “lawlessness.”

Lich and Barber were both arrested the day before hundreds of police officers in tactical gear moved in to clear the protesters from the roads around Parliament Hill in February.
