Lemire submits Moon report for the Constitutional Challenge of Section 13
The Lemire case will be the direct beneficiary of the recent Moon Report commissioned by the Canadian Human Rights Commission to study Section 13 and “Hate laws” on the Internet.
The report by University of Windsor professor, Robert Moon, examined many of the same arguments that are in issue in the Lemire case. After a 29 day hearing, spread across 5 years, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is addressing the Constitutional Challenge filed by Lemire back in December of 2005. Closing arguments in the case were held in September, 2008.
The principle recommendation by Robert Moon was to repeal Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act and not allow the CHRC any ability to investigate cases relating to Section 13 (Canada’s internet censorship provision). Editorials in the mainstream media have reached across the country in a unison voice to repeal Section 13.
Earlier today, Barbara Kulaszka, legal counsel for Marc Lemire filed the Moon report before the Tribunal.

Re: Warman v. Lemire, Tribunal No. T1073/5405
To the Tribunal:
The Canadian Human Rights Commission released on November 24, 2008 a report by Professor
Richard Moon of the University of Windsor entitled “Report to the Canadian Human Rights
Commission Concerning Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Regulation of
Hate Speech on the Internet.”
The report was commissioned by the Canadian Human Rights Commission in June of this year.
The mandate given to Professor Moon was to study “the most appropriate mechanisms to address
hate messages” and more particularly those on the Internet, with specific emphasis on the role of
section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.
The primary recommendation of the report was that section 13 should be repealed for the reasons
outlined in the report.
The respondent is requesting that the Tribunal take judicial notice of this study, which is attached
hereto as a pdf file. While the respondent relies on his own statement of facts and submissions,
this study by Professor Moon is an important and unique examination of section 13 which bears
on the constitutional issues raised in this appeal.
It is submitted that the report would be useful in the determination of the constitutional issues
and should be considered by the Tribunal.
The Human Rights Industry's War on Freedom of Expression
The Fight for Freedom Continues
Fighting the fanatics at the Canadian "Human Rights" Commission and defending freedom of speech for ALL Canadians is not an easy task. In particular, the final submissions which we've just finished consumed the most time and resources. This has meant sacrificing a lot of cherished things in my life that I used to take for granted such as spending precious time with my children. It's also very costly and has incurred heavy debts given that I'm facing a "Human Rights" juggernaut that has a limitless budget. It has already spent millions and is prepared to spent a lot more of your tax dollars to keep their thought control machine running.
My courageous lawyer Barbara Kulaszka and myself have demonstrated what two dedicated researchers can accomplish against overwhelming odds. We have single-handedly and doggedly fought the System and exposed the corrupt underbelly of the "Human Rights" Commission's fanatics. Nothing ever comes easy when you are fighting such a racket. Our case is a seminal one, where the outcome will have serious implications on our right to think and speak freely in this country for generations to come. All Canadians will benefit if we manage to get this shameful law expunged from our legal books.
