Exclamation Oh No Canada!

Christie Blatchford: Ruling in Twitter harassment trial could have enormous fallout for free speech | National Post

Quote:

What’s believed to be the first case in Canada of alleged criminal harassment-via-Twitter is just a judge’s decision away from being over.

After hearing closing submissions Tuesday from Chris Murphy, who represents 54-year-old Gregory Alan Elliott, Ontario Court Judge Brent Knazan is expected to rule on Oct. 6.

In the balance rides enormous potential fallout for free speech online.

Elliott is charged with criminally harassing two Toronto female political activists, Steph Guthrie and Heather Reilly, in 2012.

Allegations involving a third woman were dropped.

The graphic artist and father of four lost his job shortly after his arrest, which was well-publicized online, and if convicted, could go to jail for six months.

These are astonishing repercussions given that it’s not alleged he ever threatened either woman (or any other, according to the testimony of the Toronto Police officer, Detective Jeff Bangild, who was in charge) or that he ever sexually harassed them.

Twitter found no problems worthy of their taking action. The entire thing is farce, except for its implications. No wonder we fined the Progressives attacking the article.

I used to fish there but now it takes too long to cross the border, so *uck it. It's easier for a Mexican with a back pack of drugs to cross into Texas or Arizona than it is for a tax paying citizen to cross into and return form Canada with a ice chest full of fish.

Ah, so don't go there. You don't seem to be understanding my message.

This has already been debunked on another thread. Batchford left key details out of her story.franklin already started a thread on this court case. These two threads should be merged. I won't duplicate the evidence I posted on the other thread about how Blatchford pathetically slanted this story.

Nothing has been debunked. Twitter did not feel it was a problem as they did not close his account.

The article I posted on Franklin's thread told THE WHOLE story and not your slanted, politically biased version. These duplicate threads are further evidence that you Right wing nuts allow Right wing websites to do your thinking for you. You're no more than puppets.
