Physical attack

CTV staff attacked outside convoy protest organizer’s bail hearing

CTV journalist Glen McGregor and a CTV camera operator were shoved in a scrum outside a bail hearing in Ottawa for convoy protest organizer Tamara Lich.

After Lich’s bail hearing, convoy protest supporters and journalists gathered outside the courthouse entrance. 

In a video posted on Twitter, a person in the crowd can be seen shoving a CTV camera operator. As McGregor moves toward the camera operator, another person in the crowd can be seen grabbing him from behind, pulling his jacket and shoving him. The person who appeared to shove the camera operator then can be seen grabbing McGregor’s arm and shoving him several times.

Lich supporters and Rebel News accused McGregor and the camera operator of causing the incident. The website also published a story that said CTV had caused a “melee” outside the courthouse.
