An Ontario judge has ruled that an Alberta woman who helped organize protests that gridlocked Ottawa streets for weeks can remain on bail until her trial.

The judge says Tamara Lich (LEECH) of Medicine Hat has followed her bail conditions and has had a ``taste of jail'' which has lowered her risk of reoffending.

The judge says Lich did not breach her bail conditions when she agreed to receive an award.

Lich faces charges of mischief, obstructing police, intimidation and counselling others to commit mischief.

She was released in March with a long list of conditions, including a ban from all social media and an order not to “support anything related to the Freedom Convoy.”
