I'm not in the mood for a contempt charge. The Gomery Commission has imposed a publication ban on the testimony received from Jean S. Brault, Paul Coffin and Joseph Charles Guité and this publication ban has been violated by an American blogger. The original intent of this entry was to link to this blog that's sharing details of this testimony, but apparently I can be charged with contempt of court for doing such a thing. Instead, I'm going to link to this Globe & Mail story and let you Google your own way there.
In this age of blogging, is a true publication ban even possible? This American blogger that is posting the details feels safe in doing so because he's not on Canadian soil. Yet, the Internet is borderless and I'm able to read every word as easily from Toronto as I could from his next door neighbour's home in Minnesota. Information is so easily shared I'm not sure how you'd even police such a publication ban. It's easy to monitor the releases from the main stream media, but is there really someone monitoring what appears on torontomike.com?
As I said off the top, I'm not in the mood to find out.
