"GOVERNMENT BODIES CANNOT SUE FOR DEFAMATION"

Minutes of the Town of halton Hills Council Meeting held on Monday, September 18, 2006, at 7:05 p.m. in the Town's Council Chamber, section 15-H of the minutes reflected the true sentiments of the community; Councillor M. Davis of the Town of Halton Hills advised that citizens have approached him regarding bullying on this Council and referred to an article titled “Why are bullies admired?”. Councillor Davis believes that members of Council need to set an example as this is not an arena. Councillor Davis suggested that the Mayor should discourage this type of behaviour, and read several quotes from the newspaper article such as “the sad truth about bullying is that it achieves your aim to dominate“,“they’re more popular than the victims”, Councillor Davis also read the following except from the decision issued by Justice David Corbett in the Town of Halton Hills vs. Kirouac,“The government may not imprison, or fine, or sue those who criticize it...litigation is a form of force, and the government must not silence the critics by force.”
