Day 24 of the trial of Freedom Convoy organizers Chris Barber and Tamara Lich saw some resolution to ongoing disclosure disputes between the Crown and defence teams on Tuesday in Ottawa.

Both Chris Barber and Tamara Lich are being charged with mischief intimidation, obstruction of police, and counselling others to commit mischief, intimidation, and obstruction of police. The charges are related to the two defendants’ roles as organizers of the 2022 Freedom Convoy to Ottawa, a peaceful demonstration opposed to governmental decrees, edicts, lockdowns, mandates, and orders described as “public health” measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Justice Heather Perkins-McVey, the presiding judge over the trial, decided that a five-page document — which initially was essentially fully redacted by the prosecution and sought by the two defence teams to be revealed — should be fully disclosed to them.

The document relates to the loss of data on two Ottawa Police Service (OPS) officers’ work phones, following what the two officers said was a software upgrade on their devices.
