Supporting Freedom of Speech in Canada

If you live in Canada, do you think you have the Right to Free Speech? Steve Janke, an engineer and political blogger, thought he did too. Failed West Vancouver MP, Blair Wilson, has other ideas. As Jonathan Kay details, Wilson is suing Janke for something he posted on his blog; something truthful by the way.

Essentially Wilson has launched a SLAPP againt Janke, trying to shut him (and others) up. This is more than wrong. It's despicable.

If you're like me (and like most Canadians for that matter), you haven't ever had to do a thing to protect the enormous freedom you've enjoyed since birth. So you can shake your head and say, "Oh poor guy, that's too bad." Or you can actually do something tangible by donating a few bucks to Steve Janke's legal defense fund. Please read the details here and strongly consider helping him out. I just sent him $75.00. Help restore Canada once again to our claim of the True North, Strong and Free.

As an added bonus, if you make a donation I will be more than happy to send you the hi-res original of any photo of mine that you've ever seen on this blog or here or here. They're perfectly for enlargements to hang in your home or give as gifts. Here are a few minor examples.
