Judge Dismisses $104-million Class Action Suit to Silence Christian Preacher Bill Whatcott but Then Orders He Reveal Names of Supporters

Judge Dismisses $104-million Class Action Suit to Silence Christian Preacher Bill Whatcott but Then Orders He Reveal Names of Supporters

After Canada’s Jewish lobby, the most mortal enemies of free speech in Canada are the activists the the LGBTQ homosexual/lesbian/transgendered and sexually disfunctional crowd. Irrepressible evangelist Bill Whatcott keeps finding ways to bring his hard Gospel admonitions to the LGBTQ crowd. Last summer, he and some supporters infiltrated Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade as Gay Zombies. He handed out tracts and condoms. The hideous revenge planned for him was a $104-million class action suit launched by homosexual activists and lawyers. The idea was to saddle Mr. Whatcott and those who joined or financially supported him with a horrific judgement (and costs). The clear point of this intimidation was to warn potential supporters: “You could be on the hook for huge costs. Nightmares of losing one’s home or bank account were the clear threat. Some of Mr. Whatcott’s more timid supporters have already backed off.

From the start, the claim was preposterous, but with Canada’s courts deeply infiltrated by homo-friendly elements and the Cultural Marxist creed of victimology, one never knows. As the LifeSiteNews report below explains, the judge threw out the class action suit BUT preached that the plaintiffs might pursue other civil actions against Bill and his band. To that end, he ordered Bill to reveal the names of his supporters. Bill announced he’d rather go to prison. His lawyers are appealing the judge’s extraordinary order.

In the never ending battle to secure our ancient liberties of free speech from the demonic clutches of the thought control freaks, this is definiItely a case to watch.

ONTARIO, April 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – An Ontario judge has ordered a Christian who evangelizes homosexuals to identify his financial backers and anonymous friends who helped him hand out info packets about the physical and spiritual dangers of anal sex at Toronto’s [Gay] Pride Parade last year. “There could be serious repercussions for me, including prolonged jail time if I don’t comply with the order to disclose the names of my supporters,” said Christian activist Bill Whatcott.  “Generally, Christians should comply with secular courts, but not when complying harms the innocent or when the order is unjust in the eyes of God,” he added.  Homosexual activists last year launched a $104 million class-action lawsuit against Whatcott for defamation after he and a handful of friends infiltrated the [Toronto Gay] Pride Parade dressed as green “gay zombies.” They handed out what looked to be free condoms in packets that said “Zombie Safe Sex” but which contained messages about the physical and spiritual dangers of homosexual practices. The messages encouraged active homosexuals to change their lifestyle and accept the Christian faith. 


Last month, Justice Paul Perell dismissed the lawsuit on a technicality, ruling in Hudspeth v. Whatcott that the homosexual activists George Smitherman and Christopher Hudspeth could not claim defamation of an entire group, such as the Pride Parade participants or the “LGTBTQ2SI Community,” but only of individuals. [You need a politically correct guidebook to keep track of the growing number of sexually weird privileged groups.]

But then in a surprise move in the same ruling, the judge ordered Whatcott to deliver the names of a half a dozen anonymous “zombies” who helped hand out the info packets as well as the “unidentified financial backers” who funded the group’s expenses.  The judge argued that knowing the identities of the individuals who helped Whatcott was “necessary” to the homosexual activists if they were to decide in the future to go ahead with further legal action on grounds that the judge himself suggested.
But Whatcott said he would rather go to jail than betray his friends and supporters to homosexual activists who have publicly promised to “punish them” with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit.

Instead of letting Whatcott face jail time for being in contempt of court in not handing over the names of his friends and supporters, Whatcott’s lawyers are appealing the ruling.

In the appeal, Charles Lugosi and Findlay McCarthy argue that Judge Perell “erred” in ordering Whatcott to reveal the identities of the members of his group after having dismissed the case.  “Once it was determined that the action could not proceed as a class proceeding and that the representative plaintiffs [Smitherman and Hudspeth] had no cause of action, then the action should [have] been dismissed, as the plaintiffs were no longer capable of representing members of the classes,” they argued in the appeal.

Whatcott said that the judge ordering him to betray his friends so that homosexual activists can bring legal action against them shows how far the nation has “turn[ed] its back on God” as it “embraces sexual libertinism as its new idol.
Indeed, a judge helping the losing party to refile its claim and ordering the winning party to reveal the identities of friends and helpers to the losers so the helpers of the winning side can be sued is unheard of in property, divorce, criminal, or injury cases,” he said. “Only in a case involving homosexual activism where the homosexual activists are seeking to silence the voice of Christians could such a deviation from established legal norms be contemplated,” he added.

Whatcott has launched a GoGetFunding page to raise $50,000 to help cover his legal costs. So far, he has raised $10,706 (21 percent) of his goal. “If you agree with me this lawsuit is unjust and if you would like to help, please do so,” he wrote on his funding page titled “Help Bill protect his friends and stay out of jail!”

https://gogetfunding.com/help-christian … n-lawsuit/

Whatcott’s lawyers are also arguing that the judge erred in denying costs to Whatcott despite having thrown out the case.
“It would be wrong to put a defendant [Whatcott] to the expense of the litigation process if there is no reasonable cause of action against that defendant on the face of the pleading,” they argued.


“Justice Perell, in striking the Statement of Claim as disclosing no reasonable causes of action, should have awarded the defendant to recover the full legal costs of the motion to strike,” they added.

Biased and unprofessional court clerk calls police and lies to get two quiet and well behaved Whatcott supporters removed from the courtroom.

Dear Friends,

Today was the second day of the hearing into the merits of the $104 million dollar lawsuit against me for infiltrating the Toronto homosexual pride parade with accurate information about the downside of homosexuality and the life saving Gospel while disguised as a “gay” zombie.

To see the redemptive work that got Bill Whatcott and his zombies sued for $104 million dollars go here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10526

The hearing didn’t have the most pleasant beginning. The court clerk who was not very pleasant on the first day of the hearing began the second day by warning my supporters that if they made any noise the would be thrown out of the courtroom. No one was making any noise and no one argued with her. My side was well attended with around ten supporters. The homosexual side only had Christopher Hudspeth and no supporters in attendance.

The homosexuals’ lawyer Doug Elliot started his arguments with his false allegation that I accuse all Liberals of child sexual abuse. Elliot also made much use of testimony from one of my zombies who decided to identify himself and agreed to submit himself to cross examination by the homosexuals’ lawyers without a lawyer of his own. Elliot used my zombie’s testimony to bolster his argument that my material was extreme hate speech. Unkown to me, I guess my zombie was passing out flyers of his own, as according to Elliot my zombie “found my flyer to be too extreme.” I guess in an earlier exchange with my zombie in Quebec according to Elliot, I commented my zombie’s flyer was “too boring as it lacked a picture of an anal wart.” At that point I nearly gagged on some water as I tried not to laugh.

On a more serious note Elliot used my zombie’s testimony to build a case for conspiracy, reading excerpts from the zombie’s testimony that I swore them to secrecy and engaged in a long period of planning. Elliot argued my zombie’s testimony regarding my planning and secrecy was compelling evidence in favour of an order to compel me under threat of contempt of court to divulge the rest of the names of my other zombies, financial supporters and friends who helped in other ways. Elliot argued I had no respect for the law, parade rules or the welfare of homosexuals. Elliot also accused me of not mentioning the mass murder of homosexuals in Orlando three weeks earlier, unlike the other parade participants who Elliot alleged were mourning the mass murder.

Image
Maybe Elliot was mourning the mass murder in Orlando three weeks earlier while marching in the homosexual pride parade. All of the homosexuals around us where partying and having a good time. Not a word about the victims of the Orlando massacre was spoken within our hearing range by the homosexual pride participants. We only heard complaints about the hot weather, about Black Lives Matter holding us up, and of course happy talk about drugs, sex and partying.

According to Elliot because my flyers were hate speech and because I used deception to gain access to the parade my supporters had no right to privacy.

During these arguments I actually noticed the court clerk was staring at one of my female supporters an awful lot. After awhile the court clerk got up and went to my female supporter who was quietly texting and ordered her to put away her smartphone or she would be immediately ejected from the courtroom. I noted the clerk never asked me or George Smitherman to put away our phones and we both used ours to text quietly. Nor did the clerk ask the Lifesite News journalist to put away her phone that could have been used for texting and tweeting (which journalists routinely do during hearings and trials). An articling student (I think) was taking notes and used her phone to quietly text or google something and she was not harrassed either. Inspite of the double standard my supporter immediately apologized and put away her smartphone.

Half an hour later I saw three police officers arrive and then two of my supporters were removed from the courtroom. I wondered what was happening so I quietly left the hearing to see why my supporters were being removed from the courtroom. When I discovered the court clerk (who was needlessly hostile for two days) called the police to remove my two supporters I immediately pulled out my camera to record the event and get it on the public record that my supporters did nothing wrong to merit having their right to observe an open court proceeding violated. I vouched for their character and behaviour and demanded they be let back in but to no avail. The police ordered me to put away my smartphone and the court clerk was belligerent and out and out lied that my supporters received multiple warnings and dirsrupted the court multiple times.

When it was obvious we would get nowhere with the court clerk or police I asked my unjustly expelled supporters to wait around until lunch. During lunch I told my lawyers what happened and then two of my male supporters and I accompanied the two expelled ladies to the court office where the women made the case they should be reinstated. After lunch my two ladies went back into the court and the court clerk ignored us.

My lawyer argued the Saskatchewan Human Rights prosecution of my speech was not relevant to this case as Saskatchewan Human Rights law is different from Ontario civil litigation law and the context and content of my flyers delivered in the homosexual pride parade is different from Saskatchewan. Dr Lugosi made strong arguments in favour of free speech and the need to follow the law and not prosecute speech, rather than make new law to restrict speech even further.

Justice Perrell expressed concerns about the rights of Whatcott supporters being exposed to such a massive financial liability as a $104 million lawsuit for the simple “crime” of donating a few bucks to my cause or offering me a bed during my travels. By the afternoon the arguments were wrapped up and me and my supporters went out for a coffee. We all pray that God will help Justice Perrell to arrive at a just judgment. The decision is reserved for a later date.

WHATCOTT $104 MILLION HEARING UPDATE

Whatcott $104 million hearing update

Some Christian supporters standing outside the Ontario Superior Court and Ontario Law Society building in downtown Toronto, protesting against the $104 million dollar lawsuit and in support of religious liberty and free speech. I didn’t join them in the protest (as I was asked by my counsel not to) but I did thank them for coming out and publicly standing with us and let them know that I appreciated them being there.

Dear Friends,

My first day at Ontario Superior Court got off to a bit of a raucous start. I noticed on the homosexual side no actual supporters came out to support the litigants. Only the two homosexual activists George Smitherman and Christopher Hudspeth who are suing me for $104 million dollars and their rather bloated legal team of two lawyers Dr. Scott Fairley, Doug Elliott and three articling students/ paralegals came out to the hearing. On my side a dozen or so supporters came out, along with me and my two lawyers, Dr. John Findlay and Dr. Charles Lugosi. The courtroom that was reserved for us was rather small and could not fit all of us. The court clerk (who seemed hostile to my side) announced some of the people who wanted to see the court proceedings were going to have to leave.

A few rabble rousers who I did not really know showed up to support me and they started arguing with the court clerk that everyone should be accomodated and no one should have to leave as people have a right to an open court and that means being able to see the proceedings. The court clerk became visibly angry and an argument broke out between her and the rabble rousers. I cringed and encouraged people to be gracious when in court, but I must note if the rabble rousers did not speak up some people would have missed the court proceedings. As it was the court clerk after arguing with the rabble rousers was able to find a couple more chairs and everyone who came out to support me was able to see the proceedings.

Unfortunately, once people were seated one of the ladies who was with the rabble rousers decided to use her smart phone to start recording the court proceedings. The homosexuals’ lawyer Doug Elliott noticed her doing this and alerted the court and insinuated I was known to do things like that. The judge ordered her to shut off her phone immediately. In actual fact I was rather annoyed with her and rebuked her when the court recessed and my lawyer expressed his displeasure with her as well. The lady left shortly afterwards. One of her friends who left with her had his own experience with Canadian censorship as he spent two years in prison for criticizing the Islamicization of Canada.

Much of the oral arguments made by the lawyers centred around technical issues as to whether or not a class action lawsuit was an appropriate vehicle to sue me and my supporters for infiltrating the homosexual pride parade with my truthful and accurate Gospel flyers (disguised as “zombie safe sex packages) that warned of the health, social and spiritual harms related to the homosexual lifestyle.

Image

The homosexual side argued my flyers were “hate speech,” that they were prima facie illegal, that they deserved no legal protection, and that they harmed the marchers and Liberal Party members who marched in the Toronto homosexual pride parade. Conversely, the homosexuals’ lawyers called the Toronto homosexual pride parade an “advancement of democracy.” While the homosexuals’ lawyers cited my Whatcott Supreme Court decision as evidence my flyers are “hate speech” that hurts homosexuals and Liberals. I note neither the Whatcott Supreme Court decision, nor the two lawyers arguing this case produced so much as a shred of evidence that anyone was seriously harmed by my flyers. They simply parrot this falsehood as if it is fact. At one point the homosexual side compared my flyers attacking the Liberal Party members who support homosexual pride to the Ku Klux Klan’s murder of white people who were supportive of black rights and ending segregation.

In the afternoon the court clerk yelled at my supporters that they would be removed from the courtroom if they made anymore noise. In actual fact my supporters were very quiet and I heard no noise at all. During the afternoon break I found out two of my supporters brought on the court clerk’s wrath because they quietly exchanged a note between them that was written on paper expressing a thought about what was said in the court case. In noted George Smitherman played on his phone during court quite a bit, but the court clerk said nothing to him.

The lawyers for my side argued (in my opinion effectively) that the class action was not an appropriate vehicle to sue me for alleged defamtion and hate speech at the Toronto homosexual pride parade. My side also did a good job in arguing my flyers are not ‘hate speech’ and are in fact a legitimate part of the democratic debate in Canada. I would love to show you my flyers that were disguised as “Zombie Safe Sex” packages, but I won’t be able to until these proceedings are over, I suspect.The flyers contained pictures of diseases that are common afflictions related to the homosexual lifestyle, statistics related to diseases that ravage the homosexual subculture, accurate information on the complicity of Liberals in child sexual abuse, and the Gospel. Not surprisingly the homofascist side regurgitated the error in fact promulgated by the Supreme Court of Canada that I call all homosexuals pedophiles. In actual fact I never said that, nor do I believe that to be true. But my flyers do articulate correctly that the homosexual subculture is more tolerant of sex with children than the mainstream culture and the Liberals, just like their LGBT allies appear to be more tolerant of child sexual abuse than they ought to be. Liberals and homofascist lawyers might not like hearing that, but truth while no defense in so-called Canadian human rights law, is a defense in defamtion and if the shoe fits one should wear it.

The hearing will continue tomorrow. Those who wish to witness in favour of religious liberty will be doing so at the corner of Queen St and University at 9:00 am.

The hearing will continue from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in courtroom 9….

Bill Whatcott fights $104 million lawsuit over ‘gay zombies’ Pride protest
Steve Weatherbe
LifeSiteNews
Fri Nov 11, 2016 – 4:18 pm EST
https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/gay-z … ation-suit

TORONTO, November 11, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Anti-homosexuality campaigner Bill Whatcott is using a hearing called by the homosexual activists suing him for $104 million to get their defamation suit dismissed as a violation of his Charter rights.

According to the argument submitted by Whatcott:

The class action lacks bona fides. It is not brought in good faith. It is a political tool designed to ‘smoke out’ political opponents. It is designed to punish political opponents and to suppress constitutional freedoms. It is designed to intimidate, bully Whatcott, chill free speech, and financially ruin his supporters. Its stated purpose is to crush and “stamp out” anyone opposed to the gay agenda. It is a politically motivated action done in concert with the Liberal federal and provincial governments of Canada and Ontario and supported by the Liberal subclass.

Whatcott and several named and unnamed supporters are being sued in a class action by several Ontario public homosexuals such as one-time Liberal MPP George Smitherman and gay bar owner Christopher Hudspeth for defaming them and all 500,000 participants in Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade. Whatcott led a small group of so-called “gay zombies,” who distributed approximately 3,000 information kits warning against the immorality and health risks of homosexual practices and urging a spiritual and religious conversion to Christianity.

The plaintiffs, who claim to be acting for both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne as members of a defamed “class” of Liberal politicians, have secured a November 15 hearing to seek a court order forcing Whatcott to identify several supporters who joined him in the parade effectively disguised in green body suits.

Hudspeth has said the lawsuit was intended to “smoke out” all who helped Whatcott in any way — with funds, with preparation of the kits, and by donning the green suits and handing out kits.

But Whatcott’s lawyer, Charles Lugosi, has prepared an exhaustive factum urging protection of the anonymous participants and dismissal of the lawsuit as an attack on Charter freedoms of speech, thought, expression, religion, and association.

The Lugosi/Whatcott argument is basically: What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. The factum cites statements by organizers showing the Gay Pride Parade is, as the factum puts it, a “significant political event” providing a “golden opportunity” for the Ontario homosexual community to push for expanded rights and status. The defendants’ factum argues that it ought to be a golden opportunity for those who oppose this agenda too.

The factum also notes the parade was funded by more than $800,000 in grants from federal, provincial, and municipal governments and $729,000 in services. In addition, it claims that the official participation by Trudeau, Wynne and hundreds of other Liberal politicians was intended to “strengthen their alliance with the gay community.”

Whatcott’s factum argues:

This makes the parade a public and political event where, the defendants claim, they should be entitled under the Charter to express an opposing viewpoint. It is difficult to imagine a guaranteed right more important to a democratic society than freedom of expression. Indeed, a democracy cannot exist without that freedom to express new ideas and to put forward opinions about the functioning of public institutions. The concept of free and uninhibited speech permeates all democratic societies and institutions. The vital importance of the concept cannot be overemphasized. No doubt that was the reason why the framers of the Charter set forth s. 2(b) in absolute terms.” Section 2(b) guarantees freedom of expression.

As for defamation, they rely on the defense of truth for their claims about the health risks and costs of homosexual activities and on their religious and free speech rights for their claims of immorality.

The defendants also argue that the plaintiffs are disqualified because they do not have legally “clean hands.” The parade, the defendants say, “was a display of immoral, indecent public nudity, uninhibited obscene lewd erotic behavior, blasphemous costumes, which were obscene and insulted Christians and other people of faith, and biased free speech extolling the hedonistic gay lifestyle … ”

The defendants also claim that there were men and women paraders “exposing their sexual organs to children” and breaking the Criminal Code in other ways.

Such illegal behavior provoked the protest by the “gay zombies,” the factum asserts, adding, “Equity in these circumstances does not entitle the plaintiffs to equitable remedies.”

The defendants also address the plaintiffs’ demand that Whatcott reveal the names of his supporters, arguing their Charter freedoms would be endangered if their identities were exposed, especially given the plaintiff’s expressed intent to “stamp” them “out. ” The factum recounts the historic importance of anonymous pamphleteers in the cause of civil and religious rights in Great Britain and America, at times when publication of certain arguments could draw the death penalty. The factum states:

Freedom of expression is constitutionally protected even when done anonymously. The disclosure of identity is the choice of the individual who has chosen to remain anonymous. The freedom to remain anonymous is an integral part of the right to freedom of expression.
The factum concludes by charging the plaintiffs with “abuse of process” and calling for the suit’s dismissal with all costs awarded to Whatcott.

$104 MILLION LAWSUIT UPDATE, WHATCOTT & HOMOFASCISTS FACTUMS

$104 million lawsuit update, Whatcott & homofascists factums

Postby Bill Whatcott » Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:21 pm


“The crime?” Depending on who you talk to different people are perceived as criminals and wrong doers in this video. When Smitherman, Hudspeth and their homofascist lawyer Doug Elliott look at this video they think the Christian activists disguised as “gay zombies,” are committing the crime by handing out truthful Gospel literature condemning the homosexual shame parade, the homosexual lifestyle, and charitably offering a way out of it. In fact they believe Bill Whatcott and his supporters should be forced to pay $104 million in damages to the Prime Minister of Canada, the Premier of Ontario, and everyone who marched in the parade or who received the Gospel package cleverly disguised as a “zombie safe sex package.” pray1

On the other hand if you ask Bill Whatcott who the criminals are, he will tell you it is the naked homosexuals exposing their genitals to adults and children on the parade route. Bill will also tell you the Liberal politicians who are in power are criminals for pushing the homosexual agenda, voting to lower the age of consent laws, and because all of the taxpayer’s money they have stolen from hard working citizens to fund this exercise in debauchery, perversion, self indulgence and anti-Christian hate speech. angry4

The hearing that will determine if the courts will order Bill Whatcott to give up the names of his friends and supporters in an effort to financially ruin them and intimidate anyone else from ever speaking out against the homosexual shame parade and lifestyle again will be Tuesday, November 15th at the Ontario Superior Court on 393 University Ave, Toronto. Keep this day in your prayers!!!!

Dear Friends,

I have been hit with a $104 million dollar lawsuit seeking to destroy, intimidate, and silence me, my wife, and any friend who helped me with my subversive, charitable, health and truth promoting Gospel ministry to the Toronto Homosexual (unGodly) Pride Parade.

Rather than give too much of my own commentary I will let you the audience look at the lawsuit (Statement of Claim), my own account of my charitable and truthful activism. You can look at the photos of my “Crack Christian Top Secret Commandos” disguised as “gay” zombies. You can listen to the homosexual activists and their lawyer accuse me of lying and talk about my alleged malice and all the harm I allegedly caused them. You can see our literature and photos of the “gay” pride participants who Were allegedly victimized by us and you can see the media coverage and decide for yourself if this lawsuit is anything close to just, meritorious, or proportional to any alleged offense that we committed.

If you agree with me this lawsuit is unjust and if you would like to help please do so. We seriously need a lawyer to help defend ourselves against these well funded and tyrannical homosexual activists and their army of lawyers……

 Whatcott hit with $104 million lawsuit by sodomite activists
The homosexual agenda has never been about “rights”. It traces itself back to the Frankfurt School of Cultural Communists who sought to destroy Western society and pave the way for a new order of mixed race, rootless confused people — easy to manipulate and control. [Interestingly, we see this agenda at work in the fact that the recent Gay Pride parade in Toronto invited as its special guests the radical anti-White Black Lives Matter group, who promptly turned on them, sat down and blocked the parade until a blackmail list of demands were agreed to. Serves the homosexuals right.] A key target has been the family. Two prongs of the attack on the family are radical (mostly Jewish-led) feminism and the homosexual movement, with its ever changing names  —  Gay Pride, Pride, LGBTQ. The homosexual agenda involves suppression and destruction of freedom of speech and all opposition. Notice that the clear intention is the destruction and silencing of the persistent Mr. Whatcott. He uses humour in trying to win over and confront homosexuals. The politically correct are bereft of humour and HATE Whatcott’s zany promotion of Christianity.
 
George Smitherman, a former Liberal provincial politician, cabinet minister and failed mayoralty candidate (2010), makes it quite clear that the goal is to destroy Mr. Whatcott. No “inclusiveness” or “diversity” for Christian believers. Daily XTRA (August 12, 2106) quotes Smitherman as joining the lawsuit as a way  “to stamp this hateful individual out.” The lawsuit seeks, as well, to expose and potentially beggar Whatcott’s supporters:  “The lawsuit seeks in part to determine the identities of those who marched with Whatcott and those who financially supported the political stunt through subpoenaed documents.

‘Those who paid for his airfare or donated Aeroplan miles to get him to Toronto, those who put him up in Toronto, the people who paid to print the pamphlets: anyone who helped him in any way could be on the hook for $100 million dollars.” says [homosexual lawyer Douglas] Elliott, whose firm Cambridge LLP is handling the lawsuit.

 
Christians had better pay attention. The homosexual agenda is totalitarian and intent on silencing its critics. Free speech IS the issue.

I hope this class action lawsuit against me and those who choose to stand with me wakes Christians and others up to the reality of what is happening in the west. As homosexual activism and other libertine and anti-Christian movements gain power in Canada, freedom and truth are dying and those cherished principles are being replaced with falsehood, censorship and tyranny.

I have no intention of divulging the identities of anyone who has chosen to help me. My advice for my Christian friends is be wise and courageous. Pray and do what you can to stand against this tyranny. Also if you sent me some some cash, offered me a bed, or helped make a Gospel condom, keep your mouths shut if these vengeful homosexual activists come snooping. Ask your friends to keep their yaps shut too. If the Ontario courts are corrupt enough to go along with this and if they put me in jail for not cooperating with this witch hunt, just send me the occassional $20 for prison canteen, so I can enjoy some potato chips and continue to write God pleasing commentaries from my jail cell. As much as possible, I don’t want anyone to make it easy for these homosexual activists and lawyers to silence debate or attain any sort of a financial reward at my or my friend’s expense.

Sincerely,
Bill Whatcott

$104-million lawsuit filed against Toronto Pride parade crashers
Bill Whatcott and his ‘gay zombies’ face possible legal injunction

Prominent gay lawyer Douglas Elliott has filed a $104-million class action lawsuit against anti-gay activist Bill Whatcott for crashing the 2016 Toronto Pride parade.

Elliott is also seeking an injunction from the court to prevent Whatcott and his associates from crashing anymore Pride parades in Canada.

Whatcott and several unidentified allies suited up in neon green body suits and disseminated anti-gay literature at the July 3 Toronto parade, calling themselves “gay zombies.”

The lawsuit seeks in part to determine the identities of those who marched with Whatcott and those who financially supported the political stunt through subpoenaed documents.

“Those who paid for his airfare or donated Aeroplan miles to get him to Toronto, those who put him up in Toronto, the people who paid to print the pamphlets: anyone who helped him in any way could be on the hook for $100 million dollars.” says Elliott, whose firm Cambridge LLP is handling the lawsuit.

The two main representatives of the class action suit are well known in the gay community, Christopher Hudspeth, who owns Pegasus Bar in Toronto’s gay village, and former MPP George Smitherman, Ontario’s first openly gay provincial representative and first openly gay cabinet minister.

Both marched in the parade on July 3, 2016 — and in the case of Smitherman have marched in every parade dating back to 1986. Smitherman says he joined the suit to “do all we can to stamp this hateful individual out.”

“Too often, religion is used as the justification for the vilest of homophobia. From my life on the inside of the fundamentalist movement, I know that promoting homophobia is a great way to raise money from other fundamentalists,” explains Hudspeth, who was raised in a fundamentalist Pentecostal home and spoke of the experience at the Aug 12 press conference in Ottawa announcing the lawsuit.

“There is no doubt in my mind that some fundamentalist group, either here or in the United States, is backing these activities. We need to smoke them out.”

As a gay father, Smitherman says he is deeply offended that Whatcott is once again equating homosexuality with pedophilia.

“My outrage and disgust at the duplicitous means by which Whatcott and his so-called zombies will go to to interrupt this place where love is supposed to be safe and to use the most defamatory statements possible, to regurgitate the most untruthful and disgusting stereotypes with respect to gay and lesbian people, means this [lawsuit] is the right thing to do,” Smitherman says.

falsehoods and stereotypes, yet the Toronto shame parades prove what Bill is saying is true!

“We need to get right to the heart of the matter, which is the financial resources that allow for this disgraceful person to continue his act, which is hurtful to the thousands and thousands that it has impacted.”

When reached by Facebook, Whatcott tells Daily Xtra that he should have been welcomed into the Pride parade, not sued for participating.

“I just read the statement of claim. It seems to me the poor homosexuals are angry at God and the Gospel. They should have welcomed me in their parade as a much needed truth teller and indeed I was far less disruptive than BLM [Black Lives Matter]. Not sure why the homosexual activists aren’t suing them,” Whatcott writes.

If the class action is certified, Elliott says he intends to ask for a summary judgment.

“Where a case is clear cut, there is no point in going through the expense and delay associated with a trial, [so we can] bring a motion to the court for a summary judgment and get it over with, quickly and inexpensively,” Elliott says.

However, they still need to serve Whatcott who, without a permanent address, has been difficult for them to track down, the plaintiffs say.

Whatcott is well known to courts and tribunals in Ontario, Saskatchewan and British Columbia as an anti-gay activist for previous protests, both at parades and on university campuses.

In 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld part of a 2005 Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal against Whatcott, for distributing flyers targeting gay and lesbian Canadians.

Before infiltrating the Toronto Pride parade in 2016, Whatcott had similarly faked his identity in 2014 to march along with the Vancouver Pride parade, that time under the disguise of fictitious Calgary Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, to distribute anti-gay leaflets disguised as condoms.

delivering thousands of desperately needed Gospel condoms to homosexuals and their messed up allies, telling them to keep their pants
on and turn their lives over to Jesus so they can have their sins forgiven

Whatcott told Daily Xtra that he and six of his supporters distributed 3,000 flyers at the Toronto Pride parade, including to parade goers, that warned of risks allegedly associated with gay sex.

The two-page flyer featured graphic photos of anal warts and a dead body described as an “AIDS fatality.” A second page criticizes the “homosexual activism” of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and former Liberal defence minister Bill Graham.

They, among other Liberals, are being listed as a subclass to the class action suit, as having been targeted by the content of the pamphlets and singled out for their political affiliations. The two main classes of the suit are those marchers who legitimately signed up and marched in the Pride parade, and those who received copies of the flyer at the parade.

CHRISTIAN COMMANDO BILL WHATCOTT & CO. EXPOSE TORONTO HOMOSEXUAL EXHIBITIONISM OF SHAME

CHRISTIAN COMMANDO BILL WHATCOTT & CO. EXPOSE TORONTO HOMOSEXUAL EXHIBITIONISM OF SHAME

 
Congratulations to the endlessly creative Christian missionary Bill Whatcott. He and his supporters infiltrated Toronto’s orgy of Homosexual Pride. Here are pictures of exhibitionist nudity and vulgarity — carefully screened out by Pravda West — the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Of course, the parade featured the first sitting Canadian Prime Minister marcher – Trust Fund Kid, Justin Trudeau — and  Ontario’s raging lesbian premier (forcing perverted indoctrination into the school curriculum for tots) and Toronto’s wimpy Red Tory Mayor John Tory.
 
The Trust Fund Kid — loud representative of Moslems, Sikhs, the transgendered, feminists and all manner of the sexually unusual but not Majority Canadians — will introduce more repressive anti-free speech legislation in Parliament to protect the transgendered from criticism.
Toronto’s “Pride” (pride in which orifice you penetrate?) march was heavily promoted by collaborationist banks. Would TD and BMO, gushing over “diversity”, “inclusion” and homosexual pride celebrate healthy heterosexual families or Christmas? Ask your bank manager.
 
Big laugh: Black Lives Matters, chronic protesters disrupted and blocked the Gay Pride Parade until they’d shaken down its organizers for some money and special privilege for sexually unusual Negroes and the banning of any police floats in the parade. [Actually, most  Blacks are not very receptive to the homosexual agenda. Most Negro Caribbean countries still consider buggery a criminal offence.]

Here we are still waiting to get moving. A Black Lives Matter protest erupted in front of the parade and delayed our march by about 2 hours.
It appears the Black Lives Matter activists held up the entire parade and demanded money, affirmative action for black sodomites, and a banning of
all police floats from future homosexual shame parades. Apparently Mathieu Chantelois , the Executive Director of the Toronto unGodly
Pride Committee decided all of the demands were “reasonable” and approved them on the spot.

Here is one of my commandos delivering Biblical, medical and sociological truth on the harms of homosexuality. Sadly,
in order to deliver this much needed truth he had to disguise himself as a “gay” zombie because the parade was too
intolerant to accept him as an “out of the closet” Christian man who speaks the truth about homosexuality.

The parade had a massive police and security presence this year. However, we had no problem with either police or
security. The “Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association” was embraced by the parade and police. We had no opposition
to our delivery of the much needed 3000 “Zombie Safe Sex” packages, which contained accurate truth on the harms of the
homosexual lifestyle and the good news that Jesus died for the redemption of homosexuals! At least until 11;00 pm Sunday
night when the first lesbian called and swore at Bill Whatcott after she read her “Zombie Safe Sex” package.

Here is some of what is wrong with the parade. The Toronto Pride mission statement says “Pride Toronto is a not-for-profit organization with a
mission to bring people together to celebrate the history, courage and diversity of our community.” Aside from biting the hand of their most
faithful supporters, the police; and getting rid of diversity amongst the ranks of the police by arbitrarily banning all police floats, I fail to see
any “courage” or “celebration of diversity” with this group of marchers. The one marcher on the left has a picture of our Lord painted on his crotch.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgance promote hate and show a level of disrespect towards Christians that would get Christians charged with a “hate
crime” if we were to emulate their nastiness and behave in a similar fashion towards homosexuals or any other minority.Image

NO JUSTICE FOR DISSIDENT WHATCOTT IN CBC LIBEL APPEAL

   NO JUSTICE FOR DISSIDENT WHATCOTT IN CBC     LIBEL APPEAL

Canada’s courts are dominated by judges holding to a Cultural Marxist ideology. In their world, people are divided into “vulnerable minorities” who must be protected from criticism and oppressors. Near the very top of their “vulnerable minority” hit parade are homosexuals and the whole LGBTQ-alphabet soup of the sexually unusual. A strong critic for over 20 years of the homosexual agenda is Bill Whatcott. Beggared, jailed, fined, ruined by a homosexual led boycott of his carpet cleaning business, Mr. Whatcot t is nothing if not a fighter.


He won a libel action against the CBC for their deliberate distortion of his words. Good for him. However, the short-lived victory, was substantially reversed with an additional punishing kick in the kidneys, saddling him with the CBC’s costs.


The Saskatchewan Court of Appeals upheld the finding of libel but slashed the $30,000 award to a measly $1,000 and essentially cancelled it by awarding costs against Whatcott. An appeal can run $10,000 – $40,000 easily. So, even in winning, partially, Mr. Whatcott, the real victim, loses.


The decision written by Neal Caldwell concluded: “There is simply no evidence upon which to quantify or begin to assess the level of damages in this case. For this reason, although the Chambers judge’s finding of defamation attracts a presumptive award of damages, the absence of evidence of the effect of the defamation that occurred here limits that to an award of nominal damages only. The appeal is allowed in part. The finding of defamation is not subject to appellate reversal. The judge’s findings with respect to the extent of publication and actual malice are set\ aside, as is the award of aggravated damages. The award of compensatory general damages is reduced to the nominal amount of $1,000. Since the CBC was substantially successful, it shall have its costs in this appeal in the usual manner.”


The Court of Appeals is advancing the novel proposition that it is hard to know how big an audience CBC News has or what influence, if any its stories, have. Thus, so the bowel twister of an argument goes, there is no proof Mr. Whatcott suffered any damage. If the CBC really has such a small audience and so little influence, this is a sad commentary on decades of taxpayer $billion+ annual subsidy for this leftist propaganda agency.


Interestingly, in the CAFE/Fromm’s libel case, where we were sued for defamation by Richard Warman for, among other things, calling him “the high priest of censorship”, the Court gladly awarded $40,000 in damages, even though our words were circulated on relatively obscure websites, not blared over Canada’s national news network. In that case, Judge Monique Metivier seemed convinced that Warman’s reputation had been damaged by our merely uttering these words. It’s flattering but not convincing to believe that our writings are more powerful than the multi-billion dollar foghorn of the CBC. Actually, this is just another case of our leftists courts beating up on a pesky Christian; namely, Bill Whatcott.


The National Post (February 26, 2016) provides more detail to the story: In Saskatchewan, “he province’s top court has significantly cut the amount of money the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has to pay for defaming anti-gay crusader Bill Whatcott. Originally ordered to pay Whatcott $30,000, the CBC is now on the hook for only $1,000 after a partial win before the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
“While I find no cogent basis to set aside the finding of defamation, I would nevertheless intervene and reduce the general damages awarded in this matter to a nominal amount,” Justice Neal Caldwell wrote on behalf of the court. ….

The issue dates back to October 2011 when the CBC published a report on The National and its website about a case involving Whatcott that was before the Supreme Court of Canada. It stemmed from a Saskatchewan Court of Appeal ruling regarding Whatcott’s battle with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission over anti-gay pamphlets he distributed in Saskatoon and Regina in 2001 and 2002.

The CBC report included a pan of one of Whatcott’s pamphlets — but not the one that was at issue in the human rights case. Rather, it was one Whatcott had distributed in Alberta in 2008. The CBC showed the side of the pamphlet with lyrics to a song that Whatcott had modified to read, “Kill the Homosexual.” On the reverse side, which the CBC didn’t show, “Whatcott had purported to disclaim or exculpate himself from liability for its inflammatory content, suggesting that he did not truly advocate the murder of homosexuals,” the decision notes.
(Don Healy / Leader-Post)Bill Whatcott handing out flyers at the University of Regina on March 6, 2013.

Whatcott sued, claiming that CBC’s depiction of the pamphlet would cause viewers to believe he advocated murdering homosexual people.
In January 2015 Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Richard Elson agreed, finding the CBC had misrepresented the pamphlet in its four-minute news segment. He awarded Whatcott $20,000 in general damages and an additional $10,000 in aggravated damages after finding the broadcaster had acted with malice.
The CBC appealed, arguing Elson had made several legal errors.

The mere fact the CBC had published a defamatory news segment does not serve to increase the measure of general damages or to justify an award of aggravated damages.

“While the defamatory nature of the news segment is open to some interpretation, I cannot conclude that the judge’s interpretation of it as defamatory was either unreasonable or borne of an error of law,” wrote Caldwell in a decision made unanimous by Justices Ralph Ottenbreit and Maurice Herauf. Elson had found the CBC’s focus on a single, offensive phrase conveyed the impression Whatcott’s activism was more extreme that it actually was and would “tend to lower the plaintiff’s reputation in the eyes of a reasonable person.”

However, the court did determine Elson erred in other findings.
Caldwell said the judge had no evidence about the scope of the publication so erred in assessing damages. The court said Whatcott was responsible for making his case, and “it was not for the judge to fill in the gaps with speculation.”

Whatcott had also failed to provide proof of actual malice, and Elson had made inferences based on “scant evidence,” said Caldwell.
“The mere fact the CBC had published a defamatory news segment does not serve to increase the measure of general damages or to justify an award of aggravated damages,” wrote Caldwell.”
