Bound In Irons: Freedom Convoy Organizer Cites Court’s Obvious Bias

Bias

Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich showed up in a Canadian court bound in shackles and irons as she sought a bail evaluation.  The obvious bias was on display from the former Liberal Candidate turned Judge.

Obvious, Frightening Bias In Canadian The Court

Last week, Lich was denied bail by a judge who ran in the Liberal Party of Canada in 2011 as well as was praised by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the time. The Judge denied bail to Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich telling the protest organizer :

“Your detention is necessary”

The court stated that her continued detention was required “for the safety and protection of the public.” In contrast, Liberty Convoy organizer Chris Barber was not rejected bond and was also permitted to go house. Today, Lich appeared in court to appeal her decision on the basis that the court that rejected her bail was biased.

Along with arguing that the judge that denied her bail may have done so with political bias, Lich’s attorneys believe that the bond hearings should think about Lich’s Aboriginal Métis history. Lich testified in her testimony that she is a “card-carrying member of the Métis Nation of Alberta.” Lich was apprehended on February 17 for her involvement with the freedom demonstrations in Ottawa, two days after the Emergencies Act( EA )came into effect.

According to the EA regulation, “a person registered as an Indian under the Indian Act” is excluded from any restriction on protesting. Because of this, Lich’s legal advice has argued that the Gladue principles must be taken into consideration in her situation. The Gladue principles stipulate that judges are to come close to legal matters with Initial Nations Canadians with level of sensitivity to any oppressions that the individual may have experienced as an outcome of ethnic culture.

Government COVID plans, such as the vaccination mandates imposed by the Canadian federal government, have been additionally difficult for  First Nations Canadians that reside in remote communities. Thousands of dollars of penalties were given out to indigenous mothers in north Manitoba who defied lockdown orders in order to buy groceries in various other communities because their shops were not effectively equipped with necessities.
