In this episode, Constitutional Lawyer Leighton Grey and Rights Advocate George Roche have a conversation about George’s historic contributions to the music industry, how he came to be involved in organizing protests during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the transition to his role as the President & CEO of Canadian Rights Watch.

Roche has a long-standing record in the music and performing arts industries. He is an accomplished drummer, notable event producer, and one who loves to inspire community and healthy team building. George has recently made a temporary departure from the music industry to pursue an activist role while orchestrating protests like the Freedom March in Dundas Square in Toronto. Roche & Grey explore the overwhelming support for the battle to regain our rights and freedoms, how George has used his transferrable skills developed in the music industry to orchestrate a massive legal action against the Canadian government, and what people can do to make a difference.
