INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED CANADIAN FREE SPEECH LAWYER DOUGLAS CHRISTIE INTERVENES IN ABRAMS/B’NAI BRITH V. RADICALPRESS.COM HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL HEARING

QUESNEL, B.C. – Arthur Topham, Publisher and Editor of RadicalPress.com, says he received an email from the Victoria, B.C. Law Office of Douglas Christie on Friday, February 20th, 2009 confirming Mr. Christie’s interest in the current Canadian Human Rights Tribunal hearing process involving the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada v. Topham and his website RadicalPress.com (Complaint No.: 20071016).

In an email letter to Registry Officer Nancy LaFontant and Tribunal member Karen Jensen of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal in Ottawa, Ontario Mr. Christie stated:

“I am general counsel of the Canadian Free Speech League, and as such I am interested in the case of Arthur Topham. I would like the opportunity to intervene on behalf of the free speech issues raised in this case.
