HERE is a little known fact about Canada. It is today a country where you can say or write things that are true and yet still be brought before a tribunal.
That tribunal can fine you; it can order you to pay money to the people who complained about your words; it can force you to issue an apology; it can do all three.
That’s not all, though. The people who complained will not need to hire a lawyer.
Their costs will be picked up by the state, by the taxpayers.
You, on the other hand, will have to hire a lawyer to defend yourself. And there will be no award of costs at the end, so that even if you win, you will still be out of pocket to your lawyers tens of thousands of dollars.
Of course, you will not win….(Source)
The Australians are now looking at us and telling their citizens to watch out for the Star Chamber Tribunals who are pushing their way into the Land Down Under.
The title of this piece really hits it off too: Canada’s deadly tongue trap. That’s so on.
While the Star Chambers are setting tongue traps for us all over the country, they’re giving the perpetually aggrieved tongue baths.
