Joining us for this week’s EMPOWER HOUR is Leighton Grey. Leighton is the Senior Managing Partner & Head of Civil Litigation with Grey Wowk Spencer LLP, based in Calgary, Edmonton, and Cold Lake, Alberta. Leighton’s focus is on criminal law, child welfare proceedings, personal injury, and other forms of civil litigation.
Since 2020, Leighton has acted as lead counsel in several high profile Constitutional cases, including James Coates & Grace Life Church, Timothy Stephens and his Church in Calgary, the Lockdown challenge involving Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Alberta, and various vaccine mandate cases involving CN, CP, AHS, The University of Winnipeg, The University of Alberta, Mount Royal University, The Salvation Army, BDC, and others.
In 2020, Leighton also experienced a “cancel culture” attack which was orchestrated by the CBC and NDP Government, based on his conservative views. Leighton was appointed to the Provincial Court Nominating Committee in April of 2020 and due to the attack resigned from his position. The attack was in response to Leighton posting his opinions on-line regarding black lives matters, Soros, the ‘vaccine’ and other hot topics.
As part of the Committee to appoint Alberta judges, Leighton had the right attitude, stating, “I shall consider it my mission to help select the most qualified candidates, regardless of their race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation or political affiliation. In short, I pledge to have no regard for identity politics of any kind. Lady Justice does wear a blindfold after all.”
