The very first Canadian to be hit with a cease and desist order under section 13 (back before the Internet, when it only applied to telephone answering machines) refused to comply, and was thus served nine months in jail. Seriously:
for not unplugging his rude answering machine message, he served more time in jail than most Canadian rapists do.
P.S. I know the PMO staffer who selected Lynch; and I know the Conservative lobbyist who recommended her. Both are sheepish about their decision; I’m sure both regret it, and if they knew then what they know now, they’d never have greenlit this little fascist. What’s so funny, though, is that both of these men tell me that Lynch lusted for the job precisely for the foreign junketeering — she wanted to schmooze with human rights bureaucrats dictatorships around the world.
I’m sure my friends thought what she had in mind — besides spending six figures a year in first-class travel — was that Lynch’s incessant conferences would bring godforsaken countries like Cameroon up a few notches in freedom. I don’t think they ever thought it would mean Canada would be dragged down to their level.
