Episode details

On Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new travel restrictions in Canada, including forcing Canadians returning home to quarantine in a government-designated hotel, on their own dime, which Trudeau promises will cost at least $2000. This is despite the fact that international travel accounts for just two per cent of COVID-19 cases in Canada. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) is fighting back, having already mounted a number of challenges in response to Covid-related restrictions, and recently announced that immediate legal action is being prepared against the Trudeau government over the declaration that Canadian residents will be subjected to mandatory quarantine, at their own expense, after returning from international travel, regardless of their negative COVID status.

In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Lisa Bildy about the Covid response in Canada and how the JCCF is fighting back. Lisa has worked with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms since 2019.
