In the wide-ranging interview, Tamara Lich and Jordan Peterson discuss the lead-up to the Freedom Convoy, the Trudeau government’s heavy-handed response, her arrest, and just how meaningful the movement was to Canadians.

(LifeSiteNews) — Freedom Convoy leader Tamara Lich sat down for a lengthy interview with famed psychologist Jordan Peterson to break down just what went on during the massive anti-mandate trucker protest that put Canada on the world stage.

In the wide-ranging interview published Thursday titled “Truckers on the Frontlines of Freedom,” Lich joined Peterson and his wife Tammy to dissect the events “leading up to, during, and after the internationally recognized Canadian Freedom Convoy, which sought to publicize and end ridiculous COVID mandates as they heavily affected the multi-national trucking industry.”

In the interview, Lich, born in Saskatchewan but now a resident of Alberta, explained to Peterson that she was largely apolitical until the industry in which she worked – Alberta’s oil and gas sector – began to be throttled by so-called “climate change” policies implemented by the federal government throughout the late 2010s. 

In particular, Lich outlined to Peterson that she became angered with two federal Liberal Party policies introduced in Parliament in 2017 and 2018, called Bill C-48, Oil Tanker Moratorium Act, and Bill C-69, Impact Assessment Act and Canadian Energy Regulator Act, respectively.

As a result of these policies and others, Lich, taking inspiration from the “yellow vests” protest in France in 2018, started a Canadian version of the movement, which included forming a convoy of trucks to protest in a variety of locations in the western half of the nation.

Lich also explained to Peterson that it was around this time that she became involved with “Wexit,” a play on words of the U.K.’s Brexit movement, which saw disgruntled Canadians in the natural resource heavy western provinces band together to form a political party in opposition to federal government policies.

Later in the interview, Lich broke down how after the COVID-19 so-called pandemic had begun she started to do her own research about the virus and the associated vaccines, listening to experts such as Dr. Byram Bridle, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Robert Malone and others, and began to doubt the credibility of the government’s approach to managing the virus, which in Canada included lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccine passports among other measures.
