VICTORY - Two Tribunal Rulings in Lemire Favour!

 


See Complete Tribunal Ruling here

 

 

 

 

On January 3, 2007, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal issued two rulings on two issues brought by Marc Lemire. 

 

In both Marc Lemire was victorious!

 

 

 

1: Marc Lemire is seeking to add Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience, Dr. Michael Persinger as an expert witness for the Constitutional Motion brought by Marc Lemire.

 

The tribunal ruled in Marc Lemire’s favour, despite the howls from the Canadian Human Rights Commission who think that the “Cohen Committee on Hate Propaganda” is somehow untouchable.  The Cohen Committee provided the nonsense that the CHRC has been spouting for years that non-violent speech must be censored because of the damage it can do to the privileged minorities.  Dr. Persingers testimony and expert report blow the doors off the techno jargon and faulty research that the Cohen Committee foisted on the Canadian population.  Out of the Cohen Committee came Canada’s notorious criminal “Hate” Law, as well as being used to justify the Canadian Human Rights Act severe limitation of freedom of speech.  Thanks to the Cohen Committee, Canadians have to suffer under a tribunal system that rules things such as “truth is no defence” and “intent is no defence”

 

This is the first time ever the Cohen Committee has been directly challenged by such an expert witness, the caliber of Dr. Persinger. During the tribunal hearing, Dr. Persinger will review, inter alia, the effect of hate laws on society, particularly creativity and cognitive adaptability; the effect of the Internet and other technological advances on the gullibility of the present population; the effect of punishment of verbal behavior; the effect on dignity and self-esteem, as alleged by the Cohen Committee.

 

The tribunal ruled: "Mr. Lemire is therefore authorized to file the expert's report of Dr. Persinger ...  This will enable Mr. Lemire to call Dr. Persinger to testify as an expert witness (In February, 2007)..."

 

 

2: Marc Lemire is seeking to file an Amended Statement of Particulars (Defence)

 

The tribunal also ruled that Marc Lemire can file his Amended statement of Particulars, which now covered 108 separate points, backed up by five fact witnesses and three expert witnesses, backed up with over 2000 pages of documentation! The CHRC and complainant combined have a mere 2 page document with around 10 points, backed up by a few pages of documentation.

 

Marc Lemire’s new and updated defence is devastating to the CHRC and the constitutionality of the Canadian Human Rights Act.  See the new defence online at: http://www.freedomsite.org/legal/statement_of_defence-updated.html
