Lich had a significant role in organizing the caravan that took over Ottawa’s downtown for several weeks. Following the government’s use of the Emergencies Act to put an end to the occupation on February 17, Lich was taken into custody. Lich and Chris Barber, another protest organizer, are both charged with mischief, hindering law enforcement, encouraging others to do mischief, and intimidation.

She was given a broad set of bail restrictions when she was released on parole in March, including prohibitions against using social media, opposition to anything associated with the Freedom Convoy, and avoidance of contact with numerous people connected to the Freedom Convoy.

At a Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms event on June 16 in Toronto, convoy spokesperson Tom Marazzo was pictured next to Lich.

Lich attended the dinner to get the JCCF’s Freedom Award.

This is because when Lich initially consented to participate in the June event in mid-May, Crown prosecutors raised a red flag regarding the award ceremony as a possible violation of bail conditions.
