A judge has denied bail for a man charged with conspiracy to commit murder at a border blockade in southern Alberta.
Chris Carbert, who is 45, appeared by video in Court of Queen's Bench in Lethbridge today to hear the decision after a bail hearing last Friday.

Carbert and three other men are accused of conspiring to kill police officers at a blockade near Coutts, Alta., in protest of COVID-19 vaccine mandates and other pandemic restrictions.
One of the men, Christopher Lysak, was denied bail in March. Anthony Olienick, whose bail hearing began this morning, and Jerry Morin also remain in custody. The protest near Coutts began in late January and lasted for almost three weeks.
