OTTAWA — Pat King, a far-right influencer accused of spurring protesters to break the law during the so-called "Freedom Convoy" occupation around Parliament Hill, will remain in jail after he was denied bail in an Ottawa court on Friday.

King is the second convoy organizer whose bid to get out from behind bars was rejected this week, after protest spokesperson Tamara Lich was denied bail on Tuesday.

As in Lich's case, King's bail bid was rejected on grounds that he presented a "substantial likelihood" to reoffend if released, and that would damage public faith in the criminal justice system.
