Bill 52 was finally sent to committee last week and today was the first day of the hearing. I called in my appeal to reinstate the retroactive clause that the Liberals removed last December. The Liberals seem to be the only ones saying ‘no’ to this. Here’s what I said, (or what I wanted to say, I had to quickly cut a paragraph or two out to make it 5 minutes on the mark – I hate those hammers that tell you to stop speaking!)
As well, here’s a new video by another group that explains anti-SLAPP in Ontario quite well.
If you’d like to comment on the Bill you can still file a written statement – deadline 6 p.m. on October 1, 2015.
