CHRC Spent Close to $85,000 to Uphold Internet Censorship Legislation

 

Recent documents posted on the Canadian Human Rights Commission’s website show that they have spent close to $85,000 of tax-payers money to uphold their censorship franchise.

 

The money went to a lawyer representing the CHRC in the Marc Lemire case.   A lawyer aptly named Margot BLIGHT, who is a lawyer with Borden Lander Gervais LLP.

 

Blight has represented the CHRC, dating back to Giacomo Vigna’s mental serenity issues on May 10, 2007.
