The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has announced that John Carpay has been reinstated as president, after a leave of absence resulting from Carpay hiring a private investigator to surveil a Manitoba judge presiding over a case the JCCF had brought.

Interim president Lisa Bildy, a Justice Centre staff lawyer, will be leaving the Calgary-based organization as of Sept. 10, and six of the JCCF's nine directors also appear to have resigned, according to its updated board members webpage, including Queen's University law professor Bruce Pardy, former British Columbia attorney general Bud Smith, and journalist Barbara Kay.

The "Board recognizes that the organization needs to end the uncertainty that comes with temporary leadership, to enable the Justice Centre to work more effectively in dealing with unprecedented challenges in our society," the JCFF said in a statement, which also thanked Bildy for her work in leading the organization on an interim basis.
