The Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms has announced that Tamara Lich is the recipient of its 2022 George Jonas Freedom Award.

Medicine Hat, Alberta. The resident is currently facing charges for her role in organizing last winter’s motorcade that brought thousands of people to Ottawa to protest COVID-19 vaccination mandates. Lich ran a GoFundMe campaign for the convoy that raised more than $10 million in donations before the initiative shut down.

She was arrested on February 17 and later charged with:

  • nonsense;
  • advice mischief;
  • Intimidation;
  • Bullying tips;
  • Obstruction of police counseling; and,
  • Hinder the police.

The 49-year-old has returned to Alberta where she is allowed to stay under the terms of her release. She is still awaiting a decision on her request to have a Superior Court of Justice review her bail conditions, which include significant restrictions on her use of social media.

The Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms — a Calgary-based legal organization — will host a dinner reception in Toronto on June 16 where Lich is due to receive his award.

Past recipients of the George Jonas Freedom Award, honoring the Hungarian author who championed freedom after leaving the communist nation to settle in Canada, include:

  • 2021: Canadians Resist Unconstitutional Lockdowns
  • 2020: Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship
  • 2019: Christie Blatchford
