A little help for some friends....

Most of my readers are probably already familiar with Blazing Cat Fur, an intrepid blogger based in Canada. BCF is someone who "gets it" and who is constantly churning out new and interesting stories that other media outlets are not covering (that is of course until they read it on his website and then decide that maybe it is something they should be covering themselves). BCF is one of several bloggers who worked tirelessly to expose the ties between MasterCard and the recent terror related arrests in Canada.

BCF is currently facing a $500,000 SLAPP suit from someone who clearly has too much time on their hands and who takes perverse pleasure in trying to stifle freedom of expression:
Warman is also suing for comments made by multiple readers. In one instance for the heinous crime of calling him a "Bully". We all know what this SLAPP suit is really all about. Warman is using every lawfare tactic he can to prevent a discussion in the public interest of Section 13 (1) and the CHRC. A discussion in which he must feature prominently.

Warman is suing me for $500,000.00 Dollars. A ridiculous amount for an equally ridiculous lawsuit. Nonetheless even nuisance suits such as this must be defended against. To date legal fees have run me about 10K. I've covered that from my own pocket. I am now asking for your help. I know times are hard for many of us but if every reader who visited daily were to contribute 5 or 10 dollars then that would go a long way to helping all of us out.

Here at SMW we do not ask for donations - and it is so in times like these I can refer to a friend in need of our support. Today I am asking you to put your money where your mouth (or eyes) are and show Blazing Cat Fur your support. Feed the kitty. Every little bit helps.
