    S03E24 Keeping the Heat On

    The federal government has merely suspended its vaccine mandates for travelers, and these measures can be re-imposed at any time without warning. John explains why the Justice Centre will press on with court challenges against these mandates. He then describes the good time he had at the Justice Centre's George Jonas Freedom Award dinner in Toronto on June 16th. And we discuss two new court cases; one in which a retired teacher was kicked out of a public school board meeting for raising concerns about inappropriate sexual material aimed at children, and another where EI benefits are being denied to those who lost their jobs over refusing to take the Covid shots.
