Well, Evelyn Beatrice Hall, actually.
Up in the Great White Up, a pastor has been found guilty of wrongspeak, fined $5000 (payable to the person who’d filed a writ against him, but whom the “court” admitted could prove no personal harm – a fact which, in an actual court, with, you know: actual rules – might have gone to standing), has been required to publish an apology for a “crime” he feels no contrition over and denied the right to “disparage” a protected class of citizen – a prior restraint on his freedom of speech.
To re-cap: A man’s property is held forfeit by the state because he spoke his conscience.
Natalie Solent: “Canada is no longer a free country.”
Well, not until they change the law.
Not with a bang…
