Gary McHale is suing me.
McHale, who you can read about here and here and here, is suing me because I wrote a Sun Media column describing him as “an Ontario anti-Native, anti-police activist who has spent time in jail for his misadventures.” He is also suing because I asked him why he did not bar racist Paul Fromm and the neo-Nazi Northern Alliance from attending his rallies.
I am vigorously defending the action, which will culminate in a trial in Hamilton sometime in the next few months. I will be posting details about the trial, so that those of you who wish to attend can do so. I fully expect the far right to be in attendance, too, as they have done so in various other such lawsuits against me in the past.
I am also seeking contributions for costs of defending McHale’s lawsuit. If you want to contribute, please click on the “donate” button to the left, under the blogroll. It’s going to be expensive, because we plan to fight McHale every step of the way. If you want to donate directly to my legal team, Ruby Shiller Chan Hasan, you can do so by contacting them here.
My web site’s readers are (I think) the smartest folks on the Internet. They have helped expose all kinds of things in the past. I’m asking for their help with some additional research once again, about these points:
- that McHale is anti-Native
- that McHale is anti-police
- that McHale has spent time in jail
- that Paul Fromm showed up to express support
- that the Northern Alliance showed up to show support
You can send whatever you find to me here, or in comments, below.
If you can help, in any way, I will be eternally grateful. I intend to fight McHale for as long as it takes (in the Ian V. Macdonald case, the litigation went on for sixteen years, and all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada). Every bit helps, as they say.
UPDATE: McHale has tried to post a comment on this web site, saying that he “loved this post.” Glad to hear it. So, to the many folks who have already made generous donations – and/or who have sent along kind words – let’s keep at it!
