Pursuing the light of objective truth in subjective darkness.

Lisa Bildy, is a Canadian lawyer who graduated from Western Law school in 1993, and was called to the Ontario bar in 1995. She practiced as a trial lawyer for a number of years with a small litigation firm, before leaving her practice to focus on raising and homeschooling her two children. In 2017, Lisa was gearing up for a return to practice when she learned of the Law Society of Ontario’s new requirement that lawyers sign a Statement of Principles undertaking to promote Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in all aspects of their lives, as a condition of practicing law. Recognizing this as an affront to freedom of conscience, belief and expression, she led a successful campaign, known as StopSOP, to elect to the Law Society a slate of lawyers who were committed to repealing this requirement. Lisa believes that the protection of individual rights and freedoms is essential to human flourishing and was pleased to join the pro bono legal organization, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, in 2019 to engage full-time on defending those freedoms for Canadians.
