On a side note, I had a lovely conversation with Anita Bromberg, lawyer for the B'nai Brith. She keeps tabs on FD and she asked me if Harry was still banned. She is not a huge fan of Section 13, as it is written. This is good.

The young gal from the African Canadian Legal clinic (Moya Teklu) argued that there has been so little analysis of the CHRC's actual behavior that it would have been impossible for Athanasios D. Hadjis (the tribunal chair that had ruled for Lemire last go-round) to know whether this behavior had changed over time--and thus whether it had become less conciliatory, more litiguous
Another point that was harped on was about JR Books online. This was apparently because Lemire had the domain name under his name.
(ii) Bernard Klatt's evidence regarding who-is searches and JRBooksonline.com
. . .
 To demonstrate how unreliable this information can be, two who-is searches were entered into evidence containing
information about the domain name registrations of two websites. The who-is searches indicated that Mr. Warman was the registrant of both of these websites. Mr. Warman testified that he had never heard of these websites before. Indeed, as Mr. Klatt explained in his testimony, he witnessed Mr. Lemire create both registrations. Thus, while the who-is searches were indicating that Mr. Warman was the registrant for the domain names of both websites, he was, in fact, not associated with any of them.

(iii) Conclusions regarding JRBooksonline.com
 In sum, I find that there is insufficient evidence to establish, even on a prima facie basis, that Mr. Lemire or a
group of persons that includes him, communicated or caused to be communicated, the material found on JRBooksonline.com, within the meaning of s. 13. There is no evidence linking him to this website, other than a who-is search, the content of which is inherently unreliable. The evidence, even if believed, is insufficient to cover the allegations made. Besides, I find that a reasonable and non-pretextual explanation has been advanced to explain the presence of Mr. Lemire's name on the 2004 who-is search. I am therefore convinced that Mr. Lemire did not engage in the discriminatory practice alleged by Mr. Warman, with respect to JRBooksonline.com.

Well, perhaps I should not be so critical of a person obviously so madly in love. His picture of himself with Richard Warman is actually just, umm, Richard Warman and a Toronto streetcar? BCL is a Toronto streetcar? That would not surprise me -- middle of the road, reminds one of Leningrad, goes nowhere.
