Arthur Topham Update

The latest update on the saga of Arthur Topham can be found here.  For those unfamiliar with his story, a hate speech complaint (criminal code section 319) was recently  filed against him after the repeal of section 13 made it impossible to deal with his wildly antisemitic writings via the HRC/tribunal process.

While Mr. Topham still cannot post to his Radical Press site he is being allowed to use email.  The most important bit from his email to the gang at FreeD is:

Just prior to the Thanksgiving weekend the local Crown Council Jennifer Johnson sent Doug Christie an email saying that she had recommended the laying of the charge against me but that it still had to go further up the legal ladder before final approval from the BC Assistant Deputy Attorney General. Only then would the indictment be approved. 

So there you have it.  We are now officially in the world post S13.  Hatemongers may enjoy it even less.
