Well, I told you so, in predicting that the Canadian gov’t. would surely appeal. Recall that the case was opened by a private individual, David Kattenburg, through his lawyer, Dimitri Lascaris.
Kattenburg is in for litigation that may outlive him, at a ruinous cost. In the US there is a law against what is called, “strategic lawsuit against public participation”, aka SLAPP.
Here we have the Canadian government employing the SLAPP gambit, entrapping a person or organization of limited means in costly litigation to destroy them. It happens similarly in the United States, where is IS against the law, employing the same corrupt technique, where the law is perverted by entities, both public and private, to inflict injustice.
