Re: [APD] [Redacted]
Maybe; maybe not. It's hard to interpret the ramifications
of court decisions involving torts. I'm not sure about
Canada but British tort law re libel is diff than the US.
In the one, the person suing for libel must prove that
claims about her or him are not true. In the other, the
person that made the claims must prove that they are true.
This Canadaian case, in any event, appears to involve
claims that no person is likely to be able to prove.
In the US, it isn't lible unless it's not true.
In the US, anybody can file suit against almost anyone.
Generally, stating mere opinions cannot be false. Anyway,
it would be terribly difficult for anyone to prove that
your opinions are not what your say they are. Stating
matters of purported fact is another matter; such
statements must bear a strong resemblance to the facts.

Tired of filling that aquarium all the way to the top? Ready to try something a little different? Think less water, more options. Think paludarium.
