Jesse Kline: No pity for spineless politicians who don’t respect free speech

“…In an Ontario Superior Court ruling handed down last week, Justice Carole Brown made the correct decision by ruling that “the public interest favouring disclosure clearly does not outweigh the legitimate interests in freedom of expression and the right to privacy of the persons sought to be identified.” And that the bloggers “had a reasonable expectation of anonymity in the particular circumstances, given that they were free to identify themselves, to write under a pseudonym or remain anonymous.”

Excellent decision.
