Help Arthur Topham Challenge Canada’s Repressive “Hate” Laws

(GLARING Hypocrisy) Below is a post from Arthur Topham’s Radical Press site. We’re republishing it here on GLARING Hypocrisy in support of Arthur’s upcoming Supreme Court challenge to Canada’s infamous “Hate Propaganda” laws. It’s crucial, however, to remember that this isn’t merely of concern to Canadians. For we must always keep fresh in our minds that the Jew World Order has all of humanity in its crosshairs. And they’re increasingly desperate to snuff out the flames of truth which are raging like an act of God wildfire worldwide.

Freedom of Speech

Dear Supporters of Freedom of Speech,

The time quickly draws nigh when I will be attending Supreme Court in Quesnel once again to challenge the federal government’s “Hate Propaganda” legislation contained in Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

The Constitutional Challenge will take place during the week of October 3 to 7, 2016 and will mark the final effort by myself to have this specious law shown to be unconstitutional and eventually removed from Canada’s statutes.

Should my efforts fail then I will be facing Sentencing on October 31st, 2016 for the Guilty verdict in Count 1 of the alleged offence that I did “willfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.”

In order to meet this challenge I need to appeal once again to supporters for additional funding in order to pay the additional costs incurred by this Charter challenge. Please read the information contained in the GoGetFunding page shown below for further details.

This may be my last opportunity to accomplish what I set out to do, i.e. get rid of this censorship legislation once and for all so that ALL Canadians will be free to express their opinions and views and thoughts without fear of the Zionist Jew lobbyists filing these nefarious Sec. 319(2) criminal charges against everyone who stands up for Canada and their Constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms.

HELP ARTHUR TOPHAM CHALLENGE CANADA’S REPRESSIVE SEC. 319(2) “HATE PROPAGANDA” LAWS AND DEFEND FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN CANADA

CANADIAN PUBLISHER FACING JAIL FOR POLITICAL WRITINGS NOW PURSUING A CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 3RD, 2016

Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms under Sec. 2b of the Charter states:

Fundamental Freedoms

2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;

Dear Free Speech Supporters,

My name is Arthur Topham and I am the owner, publisher and editor of the online alternative News site RadicalPress.com which has been operating in Canada since 1998. Since 2007 I have been involved in legal battles with the Canadian government – first the Canadian Human Rights Commission (2007) and now the federal legal system (2012) over alleged offences that purportedly violate Canada’s “Hate Propaganda” laws (Sections 318 – 320) of the Canadian Criminal Code (CCC).

On May 16th, 2012 I was charged with a Sec. 319(2) ccc “Hate Propaganda” violation. I was arrested and jailed and my home was entered illegally by the RCMP’s “Hate Crime Team” who proceeded to steal all of my computers and electronic files. Since that date I have been involved in a protracted and onerous legal battle, first with the British Columbia provincial court and now with the British Columbia Supreme Court.

My trial, known as R v Roy Arthur Topham, finally got underway Monday, October 26, 2015 in Quesnel, B.C., twelve hundred and fifty-eight days (1258) after my arrest on May 16, 2012. The Indictment stated that I, Arthur Topham, did “willfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.” The trial was presided over by Supreme Court Justice, Mr. Bruce Butler and consisting of a 12-member jury of my peers (8 women and 4 men).

Of primary importance in understanding the nature and outcome of the trial is the fact that I was charged TWICE with the same Sec. 319(2) criminal offence. The first time was the day of my arrest on May 16, 2012 and the second time was January 14, 2014. The wording of the second Indictment was identical to that of the first. The reason for the second charge, like that of the first, was so that Crown might try again to have my bail conditions altered in order to prevent me from publishing. These additional attempts (there were three in all) to increase the severity of the bail conditions were buttressed upon the questionable pretext by Crown that the police investigation was “ongoing” and therefore the second Indictment (Count 2) was merely a result of additional evidence gleaned from posts I had added to my website after my initial bail conditions ended on October 9, 2012.

Throughout the whole of the 14-day trial what stood out most for the defence (as well as many observers in the gallery) was the overwhelming volume of documentary evidence (all taken from the RadicalPress.com website) which the Crown downloaded on to the jury. Coupled with that fact was the additionally onerous presence of two bulky Binders which were of such poor quality they were virtually unreadable, thus making the task of comprehending the details of the evidence not only formidable but in all likelihood an impossibility for the jury to comprehend. In fact it wasn’t until the morning of Friday, November 6th, ten days into the trial, that new exhibits of Binders 3 & 4 were finally made available to jury members.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 Supreme Court Justice Bruce Butler read out his Charge to the jury. On top of the other thousands of pages of online books and articles the jury was now given an additional 62-page document instructing them on how to go about deliberating on all of the evidence presented over the previous 12 days of the trial. After reading out the document to the jury Justice Butler then instructed them to retire and seek a decision on the two counts.

The decision was rendered on the morning of Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 11:27 a.m.

Count 1: Guilty
Count 2: Not Guilty

Once the initial shock of the guilty verdict in Count 1 had subsided and time allowed for a reconsideration of all of the events surrounding the trial it became apparent that the verdict of “Guilty” in Count 1 was, in reality, the key to opening the door for my (the Defence’s) ultimate objective which was to challenge the Constitutional legitimacy of the actual section of the Canadian Criminal Code Sec. 319(2) now containing the infamous “Hate Propaganda” legislation which threatens freedom of expression for all Canadians.

After numerous delays on July 11th, 2016 a date was finally fixed for the hearing to be heard in Quesnel Supreme Court beginning the week of October 3rd to October 7th, 2016. As well, at that time the date of October 31st, 2016 was set by Crown for Sentencing should my challenge to this specious legislation fail to be overturned during the upcoming hearing.

As of this update (September 6th, 2016) there remains less than a month before the Charter challenge is set to begin and there is still a dire need to raise additional funding in order to cover the costs of having three Expert Witnesses appear via video during the hearing. Also, it is necessary for me to procure funding to provide airfare and hotel accommodations for my assistant legal counsel (Mr. Jeremy Maddock) to be present in court during the week of the hearing. Mr. Maddock lives in Victoria, B.C. and has played a vital role in my court case over the past four years of ongoing litigation. The estimated additional costs will be approximately $3000.00 to $4000.00 in total.

Should the challenge to Sec. 319(2) fail then my next and final option will take place during Sentencing on October 31st, 2016 when I will have to decide whether or not to appeal the guilty verdict in Count 1 or accept my fate.

The future of Sec. 319(2) of Canada’s Criminal Code will depend in part on the outcome of the planned Constitutional challenge now scheduled to take place during the week of October 3-7, 2016. Please try to assist me in making this challenge a success for the future of freedom of speech in Canada. It’s vital that we win this battle to protect Canada’s Constitutional Right to Freedom of Speech.

I continue to have the support of the Ontario Civil Liberties Association. Also see this article from the OCLA’s website, and OCLA writes to Attorney General Anton on September 24, 2014.
