Lawyer, Douglas Judson — The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project

True North Eager Beaver

About the Episode

Hey Kits!

Weekdays at 7-ish Eastern, we livestream a (sometimes) quick take on the news, in addition to our usual formats.

When we have the privilege of welcoming a guest to The Beaver Lodge, we offer them an opportunity for an extended chat, to get to know a bit more about that which makes them tick.

When they agree, we present the discussion to you.

Our guest today hails from Northern Ontario, and is a partner with Judson Howie LLP. He has been representing Rainbow Alliance Dryden in a defamation action in which the defendant filed an anti-SLAPP (strategic litigation against public participation) motion, which was denied by the presiding judge. The precedent-setting ruling makes it such that “groomer” slurs targeting members of the 2SLGBTQI and drag community “do not attract the protection of Ontario’s anti-SLAPP laws.

TODAY MR. BEAVER DISCUSSES ANTI-SLAPP LAWS WITH LAWYER DOUGLAS W. JUDSON

Our morning show is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go, but still want to stay engaged.

This is episode 40 of The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project and

Episode 280 of the Daily Beaver Morning Show.

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.

Because #DemocracyIsSomethingYouDo…

Write to your MP, MPP, MLA, MNA, Senator, or preferred local media outlet to tell them you expect them to dig deep into the Doug Ford corruption story as well as indicted-in-the-USA-for-trying-to-steal-an-election Mike Roman’s links to Stephen Harper and Andrew Scheer.

Be a good neighbour: Make sure to get your XBB, flu, pneumonia, and / or RSV shots, to be sure you’re ready for both the respiratory virus and holiday gathering seasons. Let’s all do our bit to keep our hospitals unclogged

Finally, support your fellow Canadians by donating to the Red Cross Wildfire Response. To do some good around the world, the Red Cross also has an appeal to help those devastated by the recent earthquake in Morocco.
