WINNIPEG - The head of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is facing charges including attempted obstruction of justice after an investigation into the possible intimidation of a Manitoba judge.
Winnipeg police say John Carpay was arrested with the help of Calgary Police.
Carpay is a lawyer who temporarily stepped down as president of the Justice Centre after he admitted in court in July of 2021 to hiring private investigators to track Chief Justice Glenn Joyal.
At the time, Joyal was hearing a case involving seven churches which were represented by the Justice Centre.
The churches were challenging COVID-19 public health orders.
