Defamation law can't be fixed. It is the only common law tort (cause of action) that presumes guilt. It is a legal abomination, a persistent residue from Star-Chamber England.
Other torts are enough. This one must go.
Read this report published by the Ontario Civil Liberties Association:
OCLA position paper on Bill 83 – The tort of defamation must be abolished in Ontario
Listen to this radio interview on The Corbett Report:
Interview 862 – Denis Rancourt Dissects the Tort of Defamation
Public pressure and civil society can cause governments to legislate this abhorrent stain out of the courtrooms of free and democratic nations.
For a start, join OCLA, and join the OCLA Facebook group and follow OCLA on Twitter.
Thanks for this. I've consolidated a few other points here: https://www.sabhlokcity.com/2018/02/defamation-law-has-no-place-in-a-free-society/. Would appreciate your comments to simplify and improve the argument.
