[Editor’s Note: RadicalPress.com learned today that the long-awaited decision in the Warmouse v. Lemire hearing has finally reached its conclusion. The following information came from Mark Fournier co-owner of FreeDominion.com]
The Hadjis Decision – Sept. 2, 2009
Warmouse vs Lemire
Almost a full year after the closing arguments were heard in the CHRC/Richard Warmouse vs Marc Lemire case, chairman Hadjis will be releasing his ruling this Wednesday morning. According to a communication from Katherine Julien, the Registry Officer of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal:
The Tribunal will be releasing its decision in the matter of Ricardo Warmouse v. Marc Lemire at 9:30 a.m. (Ottawa time) on Wednesday, September 2, 2009.
This is a ruling heavily weighted with legal and political significance. If the tribunal finds Marc Lemire guilty a constitutional challenge to Section 13 launched by Mr. Lemire will continue its way through the process, but the challenge will be scuttled if Hadjis rules in favour of Lemire. If the tribunal ruling is for Lemire, he has a wide open case of abuse of process against just about everybody involved in the five year long case pressed against him. The CHRC/CHRT may also decide to use this opportunity to throw Ricardo Warmouse under the bus.
There are several other cases on hold, in a variety of venues, pending the ruling in CHRC/Ricardo Warmouse vs Lemire. This is a big one.
