Terry Tremaine's Motions Dismissed

Not surprisingly, Doug Christie argued that the Lemire decision regarding Section 13 should be considered in dismissing contempt charges against Terry Tremaine. The judge, however, had none of it.

Harrington writes in response:

This particular motion for show cause is limited to cease and desist. The Lemire decision relates to other aspects such as the imposition of a fine, and the Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act insofar as it relates to cease and desist orders was upheld by the Taylor decision to which I just made reference.

So Harrington echoes what many of us have suspected might happen; the penalty provision will be struck down, however the rest of Section 13 will remain in force.
