Ward has been ordered to pay a former child singer with disabilities $25,000 in moral damages and $10,000 in punitive damages.
He will also need to pay the boy's mother $5,000 for moral damages and $2,000 for punitive damages.
Though it may be the first freedom delineated in our Charter, it doesn’t seem to matter if a human rights tribunal considers those words “hateful.”
Not even truth is a defence.
Watch as I review some of the well known targets of human rights tribunals and keep in mind that Trudeau’s Liberals are talking about bringing back Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, otherwise known as the “hurt feelings on the internet provision.”
All in all, it’s a shameful day for Canada.
