In other news, Chris Barber and Tamara Lich are currently facing charges related to their roles as organizers of the 2022 Freedom Convoy. The Freedom Convoy was a peaceful protest against government-imposed COVID-19 measures. Barber and Lich are accused of committing mischief, intimidation, obstruction of police, and counseling others to commit mischief.
During day 21 of the trial, a major issue arose regarding the disclosure of police records and a deleted phone belonging to an Ottawa police officer. As a result, the court was forced to take an extended recess while the Crown and defense engaged in informal discussions to resolve the matter. The defense lawyers, Diane Magas and Lawrence Greenspon, requested full disclosure of certain communications, including emails from the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) Police Liaison Team (PLT). The PLT had been in contact with Barber to coordinate logistics for the Freedom Convoy, such as securing placement and staging areas for the participants. Unfortunately, some portions of the emails provided to the defense were redacted, prompting Magas to demand unredacted copies and additional communications from the Crown.
Constable Nicole Bach, an OPS officer who works with the PLT, was present in court as a witness for the prosecution. However, due to the ongoing disclosure dispute, she was not called to testify. Magas and Greenspon believed that a thorough cross-examination of Bach could only be conducted once full access to the requested documents was granted. Furthermore, the defense lawyers also sought disclosure of Bach’s work phone, which had been “wiped” after a device update or upgrade. Bach admitted that she failed to back up her work phone’s data as required by OPS policy, leading to the loss of essential information.
It remains to be seen how the disclosure issue will be resolved and what impact it will have on the trial. The defense’s insistence on obtaining unredacted documents and access to Bach’s wiped phone highlights their commitment to ensuring a fair and comprehensive examination of the evidence. The next court date will provide further updates on this ongoing matter.
