Ezra Levant

The Justice Centre is thrilled to present Ezra Levant with the 2024 George Jonas Freedom Award. Mr. Levant is a fearless advocate for free speech and individual rights, embodying the spirit of liberty. As founder of the Western Standard print magazine and Rebel News, Mr. Levant has stood for decades against censorship and the right of Canadians to access information about their governments. Mr. Levant was also instrumental in the fight to repeal section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act - a significant victory for freedom of expression. Author, advocate, and visionary, Mr. Levant embodies the spirit of the George Jonas Freedom Award.

"It is a great honour to receive an award that has been given to leaders like Dr. Jordan Peterson, Tamara Lich and Mark Steyn. I look forward to attending the George Jonas Freedom Award dinners in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver to meet freedom-oriented Canadians across the country!" - Ezra Levant
