Nova Scotia lawyer David Fraser’s blog: “The publication ban that makes no sense“… highlights the legal and appropriate way to deal with the ban. In upholding the ban, the judge was very clear who has the authority make it a non-offense to break the ban in this case. It is the Public Prosecution Service of Nova Scotia.
So, contact them!
The existence of the ban and police/prosecution discretion is having a chilling effect on discussion of this important issue. In my view, it is in the public interest that people be able to tell the whole story of the victim in this case.
