January 8th, 2024, is the date when the announcement regarding the specific day for delivering this crucial decision will be made. This decision will have profound implications for Chris Carbert, one of the Coutts protesters who has spent nearly 700 days in pre-trial custody.
James Sowery, a convicted freedom trucker who has been closely following the proceedings, offers his insights into the current situation facing the freedom truckers who protested against Covid-19 mandates nearly two years ago.
Lethbridge, Alberta - Supporters of Chris Carbert, one of the Coutts protesters who has spent nearly 700 days in remand, filled the courtroom to capacity today as they eagerly awaited news on whether he would be granted bail.
In a significant development in October, the judge granted Chris Carbert a second bail hearing following a successful argument put forth by his defense lawyer.
Carbert, along with three other protesters, has been held in pre-trial custody, facing charges of conspiracy to murder RCMP officers. These charges stem from their alleged involvement in the Canada-U.S. border blockade protest against Covid-19 mandates.
The main trial for the 4 men is scheduled to continue on February 5th, 2024.
