Bruce Pardy, professor of law at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada, and I talk about the current challenges to democracy and how the legal system in many cases has been used to benefit the current global covid-19 narrative. We also talk about his views on natural law and common law and what it means.
Interview and text by Aga Wilson, Aga Wilson Show
Bruce Pardy is executive director of Rights Probe, a Toronto-based law & liberty thinktank, and professor of law at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada. Bruce has long argued that Canada has become a country in peril, dominated by an expansive managerial state and a legal system perverted by progressive ideology.
He warned of dire consequences as soon as COVID lockdowns were imposed in spring 2020, and is one of the authors of the Free North Declaration, a call to arms to protect civil liberties from COVID irrationality and overreach.
He has written on a range of subjects at the front lines of the culture war inside the law, including human rights and freedoms, free speech, environmental governance, climate change, energy policy, professional and university governance, property and tort theory, free markets, and the rule of law.
He has taught at law schools in Canada, the United States and New Zealand, practiced civil litigation in Toronto, served as adjudicator and mediator on the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal, and is a senior fellow at the Fraser Institute.
