As the country enters into an unofficial period of post-Covid reflection, we ask ourselves what needs to be done to educate Canadians on the rights and freedoms that were so cavalierly dismissed over the last two years. Then, John goes over a couple of new Charter cases the Justice Centre is taking on, both of which involve politicians and municipal governments.Justice Centre, Sep 27, 2022: Justice Centre legal action will continue against ArriveCANCanadian Covid Care Alliance: A Citizens' HearingLicia Corbella in The Calgary Herald, Jun 30, 2020: Alberta man died from the lockdown, not COVID-19Viva Frei on Youtube, Sep 30, 2022: FULL INTERVIEW!

Kevin is joined this week by Saskatchewan-based Justice Centre lawyer Andre Memauri. They discuss the sad news from last week about Carol Pearce, a Saskatoon woman who died in a Shoppers Drug Mart seven minutes after receiving a Covid booster. Andre then gives his perspective on a few of his cases; the Seneca College vaccine mandate challenge, the lawsuit of Dr. Francis Christian, and the case against Saskatchewan's limits on public gatherings during the pandemic.The Philip C.

We go through a Toronto Star article about a federal government leak (or trial balloon) about possibly ending the Covid mandates and testing at the border. Then we discuss a victory for Canadian workers who were refused EI when they declined the Covid jab. We also take a few moments--with the Bernier et al trial in Saskatchewan as the backdrop--to remind everyone about the summer of 2020 when the powers that be gave some protestors a pass when it came to following the law, while they nailed others with fines and charges.Toronto Star, Sep 16, 2022: Trudeau government considering end to COVID-19 vaccination mandate at border and random testing: sourcesGrand Forks Herald, Sep 10, 2022: Will Canada soon lift its ArriveCan requirement?

We start with some thoughts on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Then we discuss the notion, circulating among some MSM opinion writers, that the Charter will become "less relevant" if the CAQ is re-elected in Quebec because Legault will continue to invoke the notwithstanding clause. Where have they been for the last two-and-a-half years while the Charter has been trampled by federal and provincial governments with their Covid responses? John then analyzes PM Trudeau's threats that more lockdowns are coming this winter if Canadians don't get the booster.Daily Mail, Sep 8, 2022: How news of the Queen's death was revealed on TVCHEK News, Apr 17, 2022: Constitution, Charter of Rights and Freedoms signed 40 years agoCTV, Jun 15, 2015: Queen Elizabeth marks Magna Carta anniversaryThe Canadian Press via Toronto Sun, Aug 20, 2022: Convoy organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber face trial in September 2023CanLII: Roncarelli v.

We begin by asking if Canadians have any protection against governments outsourcing rights violations to private companies. In the second half, John gives us a preview of an upcoming Justice Centre report which highlights the recent data on excess deaths and vaccination side effects, exposing that the Government responses to Covid caused more harm than good.Toronto Sun, Sep 1, 2022: Airlines coached to deny vaccine waivers on religious groundsCitizen Free Press, Sep 2, 2022: Biden Regime held weekly censorship meetings with Facebook…Posobiec on Twitter, Sep 2, 2022: "Facebook was censoring people who were sharing their own stories of firsthand experiences of severe vaccine side effects"New York Post, Aug 26, 2022: Zuckerberg says Facebook censored The Post’s Hunter Biden stories because FBI warned of Russian misinfo ‘dump’Supreme Court of Canada, Jan 27, 1959: Roncarelli v.

The Crown stayed 49 charges against seven Freedom Convoy protestors represented by the Justice Centre, but the reason they gave seems a bit strange; they couldn't produce the notes of the arresting officers. Also, we discuss the new Charter challenge against the ArriveCAN app, and the recent application to get Deena Hinshaw back in the witness chair in the Alberta lockdown case.Justice Centre, Aug 18, 2022: Crown drops charges against seven Freedom Convoy protestorsJustice Centre, July 5, 2022: Tamara Lich bail decision expected on Friday after all-day hearingJustice Centre, Jun 29, 2022: Justice Centre granted full participatory standing at Emergencies Act inquiryJustice Centre, Aug 24, 2022: Justice Centre brings legal challenge against ArriveCAN and quarantine measuresJustice Centre, Aug 10, 2022: Canada’s Road to Beijing: The digital threat to the Charter rights and freedoms of CanadiansToronto Star, Aug 29, 2022: ‘There’s a lot of ageist presumptions.’ ArriveCAN app leaves some seniors feeling unfairly restrictedChris Selley in the National Post, Jul 19, 2022: Problems with ArriveCAN are as perplexing as its purposeYahoo News, Jul 22, 2022: 'ArriveCan isn't saving's causing havoc': Problematic app sparks travel delays, privacy issues but isn’t going anywhereGlobal News, Aug 19, 2022: ‘No evidence’ ArriveCAN app causing ‘any problems’ at borders: transport ministerGlobal News, Aug 22, 2022: U.S. lawmakers, advocates urge Ottawa to scrap ArriveCAN, open Nexus officesRussell Brand on Youtube, Aug 22, 2022: It’s Happening--Amazon’s new palm payment system has been installed in 65+ Whole Food Stores across CaliforniaJustice Centre, Aug 22, 2022: Workshop: The growing threat of Digital ID technologies in Canada (on Monday, Sep 12, 2022)John Carpay in The Post Millennial, Aug 25, 2022: The dangers of centralized digital ID: Why government has no business knowing so much about usThe London Free Press, Aug 24, 2022: Student backlash builds over Western University mask, vaccine mandateJustice Centre, Aug 23, 2022: New court application alleges Dr. Deena Hinshaw withheld informationTheme Music "Carpay Diem" by Dave StevensSupport the show
Justice Centre lawyer Eva Chipiuk joins Kevin to describe some of the more interesting points in the case challenging the federal vaccine travel mandates. This is a consolidation of four different cases, and after an intense few months of questioning witnesses and experts, the lawyers have just filed 14,000 pages of testimony and evidence.Justice Centre, Aug 9, 2022: Travel Ban legal argument (PDF)Justice Centre, Aug 18, 2022: Justice Centre Federal Vaccine Travel Ban EvidenceJustice Centre, Jan 28, 2022: Honourable Brian Peckford, Nikkanen, Baigent et al. vs. Minister of Transport and CanadaJustice Centre, Jun 3, 2022: Maxime Bernier v.

Kevin opens with his impressions of the Justice Centre's George Jonas Freedom Award dinner in Calgary on Aug 11, and then John gives his views on the same event, from a different angle, as host and someone who attended all three award dinners this year, in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. Then we have a discussion of some of the main points made in Brian Peckford's keynote address at that dinner, which dovetails into a talk about the status of his court case against the travel bans. And all this, of course, leads to our final topic, the issue of digital IDs.Western Standard, Aug 12, 2022: Lich honoured with Justice Centre’s George Jonas Freedom Award in Calgary.Note: Speech from Toronto dinnerThat's Facts on Youtube, Jun 19, 2022: Tamara Lich Delivers a Speech for the AgesJustice Centre Video, Aug 15, 2022: The Convoy that United the CountryEvidence Not Fear: Dr. Roger Hodkinson ArchivesDrew Barnes MLA Cypress Medicine HatTrue North, Jul 16, 2022: PECKFORD: A Magna Carta for CanadaJustice Centre: George Jonas Freedom Award (scroll down to find links to past speeches and videos)Justice Centre, Aug 9, 2022: Justice Centre files response to Fed’s request that Court throw out travel ban lawsuitJudi McLeod in Canada Free Press, Aug 4, 2022: No Science, Only Spite Behind Trudeau’s Travel BanJustice Centre, Jul 18, 2022: Workshop: The growing threat of Digital ID technologies in CanadaJustice Centre, Aug 10, 2022: New Justice Centre Report on dangers of digital ID in CanadaCounter Signal, Aug 11, 2022: Trudeau is implementing a federal “Digital Identity Program”Axios, Aug 11, 2022: CDC loosens guidance on quarantining, social distancing for COVID-19Theme Music "Carpay Diem" by Dave StevensSupport the show
After John gives us an update on the Aug 11 Justice Centre Award dinner in Calgary (99% chance Tamara Lich will attend), we key off a Rupa Subramanya article--about the government having no science to support their travel bans--to discuss some of the procedural issues in the Covid court challenges. This includes attempts by governments to have cases declared "moot." John then turns his attention to the University of Toronto which is reinstating a vaccine mandate. We "follow the science" the UofT links to in support of their mandate, a website called "This is our shot, Canada."Rupa Subramanya in Common Sense, Aug 2, 2022: Court Documents Reveal Canada’s Travel Ban Had No Scientific BasisJustice Centre, Jul 7, 2022: Hearing on federal government travel vaccine ban postponedJustice Centre, Jul 27, 2022: Hearing for Ontario vaccine passports postponedBennett Jones Blog, Nov 2, 2021: Court of Appeal Clarifies When Cross-Examination on Affidavits May Be Permitted in Pre-Trial ApplicationsNote: The problem was noticed a while agoGlobal News, Sep 28, 2016: Judge shortage means some trials taking 2.5 years to be heardVancouver Sun, Jul 20, 2022: Support for vaccine passport and mask mandates waning in CanadaUniversity of Toronto, July 28, 2022: COVID-19 vaccinationsThis is Our Shot #TogetherAgainAlliance for Science, Apr 20, 2020: COVID: Top 10 current conspiracy theoriesLos Angeles Times, May 12, 2021: How vaccine ‘passports’ became a battle cry for COVID-19 conspiracies, ‘anti-vaxx’ forcesTrue North, Oct 14, 2021: Vaccine passports were a conspiracy theory — now they’re the new normalReuters, Jul 13, 2022: Fact Check-Israeli study finds drop in sperm count after Pfizer vaccine is temporary, no sign of sperm damageAFLOS Frontline News, Aug 3, 2022: Fauci admits to 'the menstrual thing'The Counter Signal, Jul 5, 2022: Why did birth rates suddenly drop?Daily Clout, Aug 1, 2022: Pfizer Used Dangerous Assumptions, Rather than Research, to Guess at OutcomesThalidomide Victims Association of Canada: The Tragedy of Thalidomide in CanadaTheme Music "Carpay Diem" by Dave StevensSupport the show
John reads (without commentary) sections of the recent court ruling ordering Tamara Lich released from jail (where she has spent a total of seven weeks), overturning a poorly reasoned ruling by a Justice of the Peace. Then we talk about an upcoming Justice Centre report--working title "Canada's Road to Beijing"--about the horrors of China's social credit system and efforts to introduce far more government surveillance control in Canada.Justice Centre: Tamara Lich Bail Review Decision (PDF)CBC, Dec 10, 2018: Pilot sentenced to 7 years for causing major power outage in southern QuebecGlobal News, Jul 7, 2022: ArriveCAN 2.0: Ottawa confirms controversial app will outlast pandemicToronto Star, Jul 6, 2022: Ditch the ArriveCan app and let the tourists flow in, travel industry urgesRupa Subramanya in Common Sense, Aug 2, 2022: Court Documents Reveal Canada’s Travel Ban Had No Scientific BasisWindsor Star via MSN, Jul 21, 2022: CBSA union president calling for review of ArriveCan appLifeSite News, Apr 5, 2022: Saskatchewan pauses rollout of digital ID system after public backlashGlobal News, Feb 15, 2022: Quebec to end COVID-19 vaccine passport system on March 14Vancouver Sun, Jul 20, 2022: Support for vaccine passport and mask mandates waning in CanadaWired, Jul 6, 2019: The complicated truth about China's social credit systemDaily Mail, Jul 27, 2022: Joe Rogan blasts TikTok over 'crazy' privacy terms and warns that 'China will have all your data' - as he warns users that Beijing 'can see everything you type'ANI via Big News Network, Jul 31, 2022: Henan protest exposes China's 'biggest bank scam'CBC, Feb 17, 2022: Banks have started to freeze accounts linked to the protests, Freeland saysThe Canadian Press via Kenora Online, Jul 15, 2022: Canada bringing back mandatory random testing of travellers arriving at main airportsUniversity of Toronto, July 28, 2022: COVID-19 vaccinationsTalkTV on Twitter, Aug 1, 2022: Ex police officer Harry Miller slams the police for arresting an elderly veteran for "causing anxiety" over a tweetTheme music "Carpay Diem" bSupport the show
After we say a few brief words about the Dutch Farmers' Protest, we move on to a story about New Zealand suffering high numbers of Covid infections; it appears that some of the harshest lockdowns in the world only managed to postpone (and not prevent) Covid deaths. Then John takes us through the recent Alberta Appeals Court ruling that struck down the conviction of Pastor Art Pawlowski who had been improperly arrested, confined and fined by authorities misusing a court injunction.The Counter Signal, Jul 23, 2022: Canadians stage nationwide protests to support Dutch farmersThe Counter Signal, Jul 23, 2022: Trudeau moves forward with fertilizer reduction climate policyDaily Mail, Jul 22, 2022: New Zealand Covid deaths soar to RECORD high as Omicron wreaks havocThe Western Journal, Nov 9, 2021: Stats: Sweden Said No to COVID LockdownsWindsor Star, Jul 11, 2022: As Canada's health system burns, Trudeau and the provinces debate the firehoseResearch Square, Jul 1, 2022: Association between School Mask Mandates and SARS-CoV-2 Student InfectionsCalgary Herald, May 20, 2022: Judge says Hinshaw must release documents on decision to end school masking Sheila Gun Reid on Rebel News, Jul 22, 2022:  Pastor Art Pawlowksi’s contempt conviction set aside on appealRebel News on Youtube, Jun 15, 2021: Pastor Tim Stephens arrested on new charges after 'underground' church servicesTrue North, Jul 23, 2022: BC woman died on stretcher after being in waiting room for two daysTimes Colonist, Jul 15, 2022: B.C.

Lawyer Samuel Bachand joins Kevin for a discussion about Justice Centre activity in Quebec. Sam started with the Justice Centre as primary counsel in the middle of the Freedom Convoy; so he hit the ground running and there's a lot to talk about. We discuss Tamara Lich's unjust rearrest and Samuel gives his perspective on how Quebecers differ from the ROC (Rest of Canada) regarding rights and freedoms, and what they share.Justice Centre Bio: Mtre Samuel Bachand – Primary Counsel, QuébecWestern Standard, Jun 29, 2022: Justice Centre and Citizens for Freedom have a seat at the Emergencies Act inquiryTrue North, Jun 28, 2022: The persecution continues: Tamara Lich re-arrested in AlbertaViva Frei on Youtube, Jun 28, 2022: Tamara Lich Arrested AGAIN!

S03E25 Dobbs v. Roe

S03E25 Dobbs v. Roe


John takes a look at the US Supreme Court's Dobbs decision which struck down Roe v. Wade. It has some interesting sections on 'stare decisis' (precedent), judicial hubris, and what is referred to in the judgment as "raw judicial power." We then comment on a couple of Justice Centre cases out of Saskatchewan; one in which a complaint against a law student for holding incorrect opinions is withdrawn, and another in which a doctor is suing for wrongful dismissal for expressing incorrect opinions about vaccines for children.Cornell Law School LLI: Dobbs v.

S03E24 Keeping the Heat On


The federal government has merely suspended its vaccine mandates for travelers, and these measures can be re-imposed at any time without warning. John explains why the Justice Centre will press on with court challenges against these mandates. He then describes the good time he had at the Justice Centre's George Jonas Freedom Award dinner in Toronto on June 16th. And we discuss two new court cases; one in which a retired teacher was kicked out of a public school board meeting for raising concerns about inappropriate sexual material aimed at children, and another where EI benefits are being denied to those who lost their jobs over refusing to take the Covid shots.Toronto City News, Jun 20, 2022: Vaccine mandates lift for Canadian travellers, federal workersJustice Centre, Jun 14, 2022: Justice Centre Statement on the suspension of vaccine travel mandatesGlobal News, Jun 14, 2022: Canada to update its 'fully-vaccinated' definitionRebel News, Jun 15, 2022: Top Public Health epidemiologist says vaccine mandates were 'never recommended' for air travelTrue North, Jun 17, 2022: Lawyer challenging mandates says government must be held accountableLarry Brock on Youtube, Jun 20, 2022: MP Brock questioning Deputy Prime Minister Freeland about the emergency declarationCTV, Jun 9, 2022: How delays at Pearson Airport got so bad: Aviation experts weigh inCTV News, Jun 13, 2022: Timeline unclear as to when passport delays could be resolved: ministerJustice Centre: The 2022 George Jonas Freedom AwardLive From The Shed on Youtube, Jun 20, 2022: Tamara Lich Delivers a Speech for the Ages - Freedom AwardJustice Centre, Jun 20, 2022: Legal action filed against school board that expelled teacher criticizing age-appropriateness of classroom booksJustice with John Carpay, May 21, 2020: Ep. 20 What is "Conversion Therapy"?Justice Centre, Jun 14, 2022: Justice Centre warns federal government it is illegally denying EI benefits based on vaccine statusThe Province, Jun 19, 2022: Strokes, blood clots, wheelchairs: B.C. patients describe rare reactions to COVID vaccinesYahoo News, Jun 13, 2022: Canadian PM Trudeau tests positive for COVID a second timeTheme Music "CarpaSupport the show
