John Carpay

John is a lawyer with a passion for freedom, and for defending the free society.  As head of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, he has devoted his legal career to helping individuals when their rights and freedoms are violated by government.  The fight to preserve Canada’s proud tradition of freedom makes for interesting stories, some involving controversial clients.  In the court of law, and in the court of public opinion, John makes the principled case for true tolerance: the free society allows unpopular speech and unpopular associations. He considers it a privilege to advocate for courageous and principled clients who take great risks – and make tremendous personal sacrifices – by resisting the unjust demands of intolerant government authorities.
