Tamara Lich and Chris Barber were at the forefront of the convoy protest that rolled into Ottawa on Jan. 29, 2022. As leaders, they encouraged supporters blocking the downtown to both “hold the line” and protest peacefully. On Feb. 17, 2022, they were arrested. Now they are standing trial for their actions.

Kristy Kirkup is a parliamentary reporter for The Globe and she went to the first week of their trial. She explains why this trial is expected to uncover new details about the convoy protest and catches us up on what happened in the opening days.
