Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich was awarded the annual George Jonas Freedom Award by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms at a ceremony in Toronto June 16.

A sold-out audience paid $150 to $500 to attend the event, which included a reception, dinner, the award presentation, and a keynote address from columnist and former national radio host Rex Murphy.

“Ms. Lich inspired Canadians to exercise their Charter rights and freedoms by participating actively in the democratic process, and took the initiative to help organize a peaceful protest and serve as one of its leaders, the Justice Centre wrote in an online post regarding Lich’s selection in April.

“The resulting peaceful protest in Ottawa awakened many Canadians to the injustice of Charter-violating lockdowns and mandatory vaccination policies. Ms. Lich has suffered for the cause of freedom by spending 18 days unjustly jailed, and exemplifies courage, determination and perseverance.”

Similar Justice Centre ceremonies for Lich will be held in Vancouver on July 13 and Calgary on Aug. 11.
