Ontario Superior Court began hearing arguments to release Ottawa convoy organizer Pat King on bail after his lawyer requested a review of the initial decision to keep him in jail until his trial.
King was a key figure in the three-week convoy protest against COVID-19 restrictions and the federal government that swarmed Ottawa’s downtown streets at the end of January, blocking streets and blaring loud horns at all hours.
King was denied bail on Feb. 25.

King appeared freshly shaved, in jeans, a grey flannel shirt and tan vest with his hair in a neat braid.
The hearing is expected to last two days.
