The Law Society of Ontario will take no further action against a lawyer who advertised in the pro-Nazi, Holocaust-denying and misogynist tabloid Your Ward News.

The lawyer, David Faed, participated in a Regulatory Meeting with the Law Society’s Proceedings Authorization Committee in November. The committee announced in December that while placement of the ad was not in the public interest and inconsistent with the professionalism standards under the Rules of Professional Conduct, the regulatory issue had been addressed and no further action would be taken.

In 2019, the editor and publisher of Your Ward News were convicted of wilful promotion of hatred against Jews and Women, contrary to s. 319(2) of the Criminal Code.

Back in 2016, Ottawa-based human rights lawyer Richard Warman brought the complaint against Faed. Warman argued his association with the publication violated a number of sections of the Rules of Professional Conduct, including s. 6.3.1-1: that lawyers have a “special responsibility to respect the requirements of human rights laws” and “honour the obligation not to discriminate.” 

Warman says Faed’s matter should not have taken so long to conclude and that the misconduct was “self-evident.”

“This is ludicrous both in terms of the delay and outcome,” he says. “… Whether a lawyer should advertise in a neo-Nazi tabloid that openly promotes hatred of women and Jews should not have been a difficult question.”

“This investigation by the Law Society of Ontario has been a failure from start to finish… There is no way under the sun, that an investigation of that nature should take four and a half years.” 

Law Times contacted Faed, but he declined to comment for this article.

Your Ward News was operated by editor James Sears and publisher Leroy St. Germaine, who were found guilty of wilful promotion of hatred by Justice Richard Blouin of the Ontario Court of Justice. The publication was found to have contained the glorification of Nazism and Adolph Hitler, Holocaust denial, the demonization of Jewish people and of women and the celebration and promotion of rape. In 2016 Canada Post stopped distributing Your Ward News after Warman filed a complaint to the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

At the Regulatory Meeting, Faed told the Law Society he had not read Your Ward News, was unaware of the nature of its content and that he does not share “any hateful views that may have been espoused by the publisher or editor.” The Law Society added that Faed had withdrawn the ad three years ago and was “unlikely to conduct himself similarly in the future.”

But despite Faed’s explanation to the Law Society, Warman says Faed continued advertising into 2017, after Warman had contacted him and explained his concerns with the publication’s content. He adds that Sears and St. Germaine were required under their release conditions to stop publishing – they were arrested in 2017 – so Faed cannot be credited for no longer advertising with them.  

“This idea that somehow of his own good graces, Mr. Faed stopped the advertising in Your Ward News is simply – I don’t believe that’s a credible explanation,” says Warman.

Faed’s ads also included a disclaimer stating: “Independent. I am not involved with the New Constitution Party of Canada,” which Faed believed would “distance himself” from the contents of the publication, said the Law Society.

According to its website, the New Constitution Party of Canada is “an all-inclusive federal party based on Libertarian doctrine, Christian values, and National Socialist ideology.” The party, which is led by Sears, “incorporates the intellect of Dr. Ron Paul, the heart of Chancellor Adolf Hitler, and the soul of Jesus Christ, into one powerful political Chimera that will crush the Marxist beast.”

Sears is representing himself on appeal. He seeks to have his conviction overturned on the basis his former lawyer was incompetent, partly for refusing to call a witness who would have testified that gas chambers were not used against Jews in the Holocaust.

Canada’s great free speech champion, the late Doug Christie, explained the vile method of prosecuting freethinkers thus:  “Demonize, isolate, then criminalize.” It works like this:An individual is targetted usually by the Zionist lobby or the radical homosexual lobby. The conformist mainstream media moves in like piranas on steroids. The victim is demonized in a series of  hyperventilating articles of “news” (actually opinion rants) reports filled with weaponized words or defamation: “neo-Nazi”, “racist,” “White supremacist”, “holocaust denier.” The public may not fully understand these words and the victim may not identify himself as such, but the public knows the words mean he’s “bad”.
Now demonized, the victim is isolated. Former friends slink away or distance themselves. Co-workers or employers  grow afraid and disown the victim or, often, fire him. People are afraid to support the victim let they too be demonized.
Now, virtually alone and isolated, publicly defamed and trashed, the victim can be safely prosecuted.
We see this evil pattern in the ongoing persecution of the satirical East End Toronto tabloid YOU WARD NEWS, It is proudly anti-ZioMarxist and most politically incorrect. It’s enemies have tried to shut if down by demanding that the Toronto Police thought police, “the hate squad”, charge it under Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code, Canada’s notorious “hate law”. Thus far, that hasn’t worked. In another move, advertisers were targetted with abuse and threats.Sleazy anti-racists striking by night have repeatedly smashed the windows of YOUR WARD NEWS and ruined its door locks. Leftist postal workers refused to deliver it but were compelled to by their employers, 
Champion Ottawa complainer Richard Warman then demanded that Canada Post cease delivering the newspaper as he disapproved of its contents — “racist, sexist” blah, blah, blah,
That didn’t work. So, off he went to the Canadian Human Rights Commission with a complaint against the Government of Canada and Canada Post for distributing YOUR WARD NEWS.
Then, in June, Public Services Minister Judy Foote arbitrarily cancelled the mailing rights of editor Dr. James Sears and publisher Leroy St. Germaine. Jackbooting English Common Law which does not inflict punishment until there has been a charge, followed by a trial, with evidence and argumentation, and then, and only then, if there is a finding of guilt. The minister asserted that she had reason to believe YOUR WARD NEWS was violating Sec. 319 (“the hate law”) and the law of criminal libel, although no charges have been laid and no conviction registered.
Part of the “isolate” tactic is to strip the victim of supporters. Should a friend or supporter prove recalcitrant, threats are now directed against him. That’s what is happening to one of the loyal advertisers in YOUR WARD NEWS. That infernal busybody Richard Warman is now seeking to damage one of the loyal advertisers professionally.

On his website, Warman reports: “Your Ward News update – There is a Toronto lawyer named David FAED who has been advertising for some time in the bigotry-filled tabloid called Your Ward News. Mr. Faed has chosen to continue advertising in this publication despite knowing of its contents given that I (and others apparently) have raised concerns with him directly.

The latest edition of Your Ward News includes material counselling the obstruction of justice by counselling male jurors to acquit men charged with sexual offences against women and girls without regard to the evidence before them.

I have expressed my concerns about a lawyer like Mr. Faed advertising alongside open bigotry to the Law Society of Upper Canada given my belief this constitutes unprofessional conduct and have asked that this latest information be added to the file.” (

Notice the admission that Warman has contacted advertisers seeking to get them to drop their ads and, thus, to inflict harm on YOUR WARD NEWS. As advertiser and lawyer Mr. David Faed has stuck with YOUR WARD NEWS, Warman now seeks to cause him professional harm with a complaint to the Law Society of Upper Canada, 
Could it really be that in constipated, Puritanical politically correct Canada advertising in a politically incorrect publication could actually constitute unprofessional conduct?
We’ll have to wait and see.
