Marc Lemire’s Constitutional Challenge

 of Internet Censorship and Repression  Continues

 

    June 25-27, 2007 Oakville 

Holiday Inn Select Hotel & Suites Oakville

Oakville , Ontario


The Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) are attempting to have a fine issued and a LIFETIME speech ban placed on Internet webmaster Marc Lemire for content placed onto his website – The Freedomsite. The CHRC and Richard Warman allege a violation of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, Canada ’s notorious internet censorship legislation, which has so far ensnared 100 victims and raked in close to $100,000 in fines.

 

This is a classic freedom of speech case, as none of the complained of material, is a single word that Mr. Lemire has said or written, but rather mostly revolves around a public Internet message board, hosted on the Freedomsite, where any internet user could debate and join virtual conversations on a variety of topics.

 

As part of Marc Lemire’s vigorous defence to these allegations, he has launched a Constitutional challenge of the Canadian Human Rights Act, specifically Section 13 and 54.

 

The Canadian Human Rights Commission have now been put on trial!

 

There has already been over a month and a half of hearings into this case, spanning 22 hearing days across three cities and included history making testimony from numerous world-renowned expert witnesses called by the defence. The Lemire Defence Team is headed up by courageous Section 13 expert and lawyer, Barbara Kulaszka who, with amazingly in-depth research spanning over 20 years, has thoroughly exposed this law to be politically motivated and a clear violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Bill of Rights.

 

At the beginning of the hearing, Barbara Kulaszka successfully argued and received from the Tribunal, three subpoenas against employees of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. This is the first time in a Section 13 case that a subpoena has ever been issued. The CHRC is in complete disarray over the Constitutional Challenge. It appears the complainant, Richard Warman has largely abandoned the case (Warman left in the middle of the second week of hearings, and has never returned). The CHRC’s counsel has claimed he has no “mental serenity” and apparently withdrawn from the case. The CHRC has now hired outside legal counsel to represent them, which will cost taxpayers a small fortune.

 

On the first day of the Marc Lemire hearing, those seeking to uphold Internet censorship basically laughed at the defence team. After 22 hearing days, nine witnesses, dozens of Section 37 invocations, four exposed infiltrators, numerous motions won and over 2,000 pages of documents submitted by the defence - they are NOT laughing any longer!
