Who will be the 1st Midhurst citizen to be sued; to be made an example of?

All 4 local PC MPPs are solidly in favour of having Midhurst swell by 9 times 2011 levels.

The Township is resolutely stuck in neutral (which everyone knows is a position, btw).

Quebec has their anti-SLAPP legislation and is moving ahead defining it (see Acadia Subaru v. Michaud: Supreme Court of Canada to rule on Quebec’s anti-SLAPP legislation).

It’d be nice if the Ontario government dusted off its 2010 report: Anti-SLAPP Advisory Panel: Report to the Attorney General.

Democracy suffers when the high cost and stress of lawsuits are used to defeat free speech in a representative democracy.

SLAPP = Strategic lawsuit against public participation
