I’ll take it from here and continue on from the last post “Ontario government lawyers join the SLAPP suit game”
You may wonder why this motion by the Ministry of Environment (demanding costs) was thrown at us in Adelaide in the first place. The MOE was demanding that I disclose the following information about the one witness on my list who has had the horrid experience of living with wind turbines.
Ask yourself, would you freely give this information, make it PUBLIC, for the sole benefit of your own government, and a foreign corporation like NextEra, to try and tell you , “it’s all in your head”? Notice that they really want specialist documents and notes from your… shrink. Like really, go to hell.
But that’s not it. You better hand all of this over too:
Feeling a little exposed? Well, if you don’t do it, a) we’ll hit the appellant with costs, and b) prohibit you from testifying!
Hmm. But this is our government, don’t they have a smidgen of a conscience? Don’t they… care about our rights to privacy? Just a little??
This is our government lawyers in action, people.
Now, I’m going to ask you:
If YOU were served with this motion, would you ‘obey’, ‘comply’, ‘bow down’ to these demands and threats?
