Danielle Smith - Featuring Justice Centre Lawyer Jay Cameron

Justice with John

We talk about an open letter from a doctor to British Columbia's provincial health officer calling for more scientific honesty, and we also look at a couple of lawsuits overseas taking aim at the extent of the pandemic and the origins of the lockdowns.

Justice with John

With W.H.O. no longer recommending lockdowns and the issuing of the Great Barrington Declaration, we let our host say "I told you so" because he's been advocating these positions since the beginning of the pandemic.


The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has released a Charter analysis of Saskatchewan's COVID-19 lockdown measures, and found they violated the Charter freedoms of citizens to travel, move, associate, assemble, and worship freely "all while crippling society and the economy." Marty Moore, a lawyer with the Justice Centre, says Saskatchewan's government didn't justify the restrictions it imposed on residents, and he joins Gormley to tell us more.

Justice with John

John returns to the show to help us catch up on the COVID file as we look at the second wave situation in Quebec and Ontario, with the former bringing in strict lockdown measures based on the number of cases, not deaths. And we also discuss John's Post Millennial column about the impact of lockdown measures in developing nations.

Justice with John

Lindsay Shepherd, free speech fellow with the Justice Centre, joins us to talk about the 2020 Campus Freedom Index, on which she was the lead author. She tells us about her findings--some good, a lot bad--and shares a few interesting anecdotes of things she found along the way.

Justice with John

Justice Centre litigation manager Jay Cameron talks about the 2-week mandatory quarantine orders across Canada for travelers arriving from abroad. The Centre has sent a legal warning letter to the Alberta Health Minister on behalf of a client who is trying to get the government to ease up on the restrictions.

Justice with John

Lawyer Marty Moore joins us to go over the latest Justice Centre report, which is on the Saskatchewan government's response to COVID-19. Entitled "The Unjustified Persistence of Lockdowns," much of this work can be applied to other provinces as well.

Justice with John

We look back at a pre-COVID controversy in which nurses' unions fought against mandatory mask policies and won. Everyone seems to have forgotten about this, but obviously it is relevant to the situation today. Also, we talk about the growing body of evidence showing the lockdowns were ineffective.

Justice with John

Will the loss of freedom in Canada become permanent following the pandemic? Is it already permanent? We discuss possible remedies to this reduction of Charter rights and freedoms which is based on fear of COVID, a fear that governments and the media have stoked for months. Perhaps change will come when society fears the lockdown measures more than the virus.

Lisa Bildy

Lawyer Lisa Bildy joins us to talk about the Justice Centre's recent action filed against the Ontario government over lockdown rules restricting relatives from visiting family members in long-term care.

Justice with John

Our guest law professor Bruce Pardy discusses his article "Public Universities, Speech Policies, and the Law: Fourteen Maxims." He defines the issues and clears up some common misconceptions about free speech and freedom in general for academics, administrators and students on campuses in Canada.

Justice with John

Columnist and social commentator Barbara Kay discusses the situation that led to her resignation from the National Post, circumstances that parallel problems in legacy media newsrooms everywhere. She also speaks about some of the issues she continues to write about in new media, like the transgender movement and its impact on women.

Justice with John

Why are mask laws being brought in now, after we've flattened the curve, and after the pandemic has turned out to be far less deadly than originally projected? We talk about this and other COVID-19 matters. Also, the Albertan John provides a short report on his holiday to British Columbia during which, he's happy to say, his vehicle did not get vandalized by those who believe people should stay home during the pandemic.

Justice with John

Jay Cameron, lawyer and litigation manager with the Justice Centre, is featured on the show talking about the federal Liberal gun ban passed on May 1 without Parliamentary oversight. It's going to court and it will be a landmark case.

Justice with John

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.

Justice with John

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.

Justice with John

Our guest this week is law professor Bruce Pardy, discussing his recent column in the Financial Post where he identifies Critical Theory as one of the causes of the current social upheaval. Knowing the basics of Critical Theory will help you understand why it's often impossible to succeed by using reason and logic when arguing with the radicals.

Justice with John

We discuss the Alberta government's Bills 10 and 24, the latter coming into force just last week. These new laws give even more sweeping powers to the government, in times of medical emergencies and beyond. John also describes the sad case of Jerry Dunham, who died because of the lockdown. And finally, we talk about the current cancel culture frenzy.

Justice with John

We discuss the latest report from the Justice Centre, called "Unprecedented and Unjustified," which provides a Charter analysis of Ontario’s Response to COVID-19. John urges everyone to let their elected representatives know what they think of the lockdown measures that have caused so much harm, and demand they be lifted immediately.

Justice with John

John calls upon Canada's religious leaders to stop blindly accepting government restrictions on religious freedom. The claims made in March 2020 about COVID-19 have now proven to be false, and those who love truth need to look at the facts, rather than be governed by fear. We then speak about ending the neglect and abuse of the elderly in long-term care homes.

Justice with John

Justice Centre lawyer Lisa Bildy talks about her legal work in Ontario during the last few weeks of the pandemic, including peaceful assembly and freedom of religion cases. We also talk about the mistreatment of seniors in long term care facilities, and get some background on Lisa herself as she tells us what motivates her to work with the Justice Centre.

Justice with John

A short while ago, police were handing out tickets with enormous fines to those who violated lockdown orders and encroached on social distancing regulations. But in recent protests against racism, it's like the social distancing thing never happened, and Canada’s politicians are perfectly fine with that. This double standard is a dangerous rejection of the rule of law. We also discuss freedom of the press after Rebel Media reporter Keean Bexte gets tossed from a Trudeau press conference.

Justice with John

John reports on a conference call he participated in with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and Chief Medical Officer Deena Hinshaw, along with faith leaders from around the province. He wonders why the government relaunch and re-opening rules allow restaurants so much more freedom than houses of worship.
