We talk about The Justice Centre’s Charter Analysis on British Columbia’s COVID-19 response and also about the province’s health officer Bonnie Henry who has become something of a media star.

This episode leads off with a discussion about the Charter freedom implications of mandatory mask policies. Later, John explains how the Law Society of Alberta disregards the Charter freedoms of Leighton Grey, a lawyer who’s been cancel-cultured because he criticized Black Lives Matter.
