Justice with John Carpay

Justice with John Carpay

John Carpay, founder and president of The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, talks about the issues--legal, political and cultural--that concern him most. The Justice Centre (website jccf.ca) has been going strong for ten years, so there is a lot to discuss. With facilitator and producer Kevin Steel, each week John will bring you up to date on the latest, as well as provide insights about the law and the fight for freedom.

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Centre cases out of Saskatchewan; one in which a complaint against a law student for holding incorrect opinions is withdrawn, and another i...

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...

We give an update on Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich's bail hearing by diving into the judge's ruling, which John sees as a mixed bag of victories and defeats. We then turn to John's latest column in The Post Millennial on Bill C-11, an Epoch Times story on Canada's PM calling on security agencies to tackle "extremism" (free speech) on the internet (to keep us safe, of course). Finally we discuss the po...

We compare the arrest of Ontario MPP Randy Hillier with similar arrests and detentions in Europe. We can't help but notice a pattern of government intimidation against high-profile opponents of medical tyranny. John then previews his next column where he examines the wild claims of Jody Thomas, Prime Minister Trudeau’s national security advisor, who claims that Freedom Convoy protestors wanted to "overthrow” the government....

John takes us through the Netflix series 'How to become a tyrant' and why it’s relevant for Canada today. This Netflix series provides many examples of how governments across Canada have followed the tyrant's playbook, from initial lockdowns through to recently crushed protests and the arrests of political opponents. We also note that the Alberta government has backed down from its plans to scrap traffic court and kill ...

The Justice Centre is funding the legal defence of Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich.

John once again gets to say, "I told you so" after it emerges that data used to support Neil Ferguson's modeling in March of 2020, back at the beginning of the pandemic and lockdowns, was faulty. Then we discuss how the lies that propped up the federal government's case for invoking the Emergencies Act are being exposed.

We discuss Trudeau's climbdown on the Emergencies Act after using it to pummel the Ottawa protest and freeze bank accounts, and why it's important to continue to pursue court cases against his actions.

The three days in Ottawa, from February 18th, as police attacked a peaceful protest, have revealed to the world the lack of democracy and freedom in Canada, even if our own propagandist media won't admit it. We put the events in some context, which, John says, demonstrate that our once free country has become "a banana republic with polar bears."

We review the Feb 11 speech by Ontario Premier Doug Ford in which he declares a State of Emergency to deal with the trucker vaccine mandate protests. Like the Prime Minister, Ford uses lies and threats to make his case against peaceful protestors while attempting to gaslight the Canadian public into thinking these truckers are criminals. Also, John exposes CBC bias in an article which claims to refute Saskatchewan Premier Moe's...

John and our guest, Theo Fleury, respond to a couple of audio clips, including one of the Ottawa police chief announcing new measures to end the truck convoy protest. Fleury believes the abuse of power that Canada has endured over the last two years with the government Covid crisis is similar to abuse he suffered in his youth, and he says that the convoy celebration is a first step to set ourselves free.
