After a brief scare, Canadian icon Andy Lee is with us once again. Concerns about her health have been quashed.
Calgary-based journalist Andy Lee, previously censored by Twitter for reporting on the Freedom Convoy, was arrested in Alberta on Sunday.
Lee posted about the incident on Twitter, leading many of her supporters to show concern for her health.
Lee returned to Twitter later Sunday night, clarifying that was she was detained and underwent a mental health evaluation.
After an evaluation, Lee was found not to be a danger to herself, or anyone else, and released.
Lee claims her bank accounts were frozen in February for her work reporting on the Freedom Convoy.
The Trudeau government took unprecedented steps to end the mostly peace protest that took over Ottawa at the beginning of the year.
Two of the leader organizers, Tamara Lich and Pat King, remain in prison.

Pat King, by his own admission, was not an organizer of the Freedom Convoy. He drove with the Convoy and participated on his own once he arrived in Ottawa.
