OTTAWA—Convoy protest leader Tamara Lich discussed a strategy to "gridlock" the capital in the early days of the protests that paralyzed the streets around Parliament Hill for three weeks this winter, according to evidence presented in court Tuesday.

Crown lawyer Moiz Karimjee submitted the evidence, which was obtained through a police search of a cellphone belonging to Chris Barber, a fellow protest organizer who is accused with Lich on a slew of charges related to their roles in the convoy occupation.

Lich was back in court Tuesday for her fourth bail hearing since her initial arrest in February, after she was taken into police custody again last week for allegedly breaching a condition of her release.
