|Never give up!
Free Dominion, as you know, is still closed to the public, but that doesn’t mean we have quit!
We are appealing the Warman decision that resulted in the site being closed, and we are currently fighting a very important test case for internet defamation. A win in this case, Baglow v Free Dominion, could result in a decision that site operators are not responsible for the posts of other people. That case law would mean it would be safe for us to re-open the doors of Free Dominion!
The case so far..
We reported last time we wrote you that the Baglow trial would be three days long. Not only did it take that entire week, but we have to go back again for two days in June, and for another whole week in September! That means we will be in court for a total of 13 days for a total of 7 little words!
On June 3rd and 4th we will be in Ottawa for the next phase of that Baglow trial. Connie is representing herself and Barbara Kulaszka is representing Mark. The CCLA is intervening on our behalf.
On June 3rd, Connie will be cross-examining John Baglow and we will hear from the CCLA on the 4th. It will be at the Courthouse at 161 Elgin St, as usual.
Drop by if you can, we would love to see you!
We are running a fundraiser to get our legal fund through the summer. We’ve decided not to use indiegogo this time because it costs a lot and we have to pay them their percentage on offline donations, too, if we want to keep the total current. Instead, we are running it on Free Dominion.
If you can help, we would really appreciate it!

Thank you so much to all of you for being there for us! Monetarily, but also through your thoughts, prayers and encouragement. We are not going to give up, and we hope that the result of our fight is more freedom for all of us!
