Barry Neufeld Legal Fund

$33,405 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 128 people in 6 months
Created July 19, 2018
Coalition of Concerned Canadians
on behalf of Paul Jaffe
Barry Neufeld, a Board of Education Trustee in Chilliwack, was democratically elected and has been respectfully speaking to very challenging issues regarding curriculum on behalf of his constituency. 

Earlier this year complaints on behalf of unnamed complainants were made under human rights legislation by two unions. Regardless of one’s beliefs of the merits on either side of the ongoing discussions regarding SOGI, these complaints appear to be made to undermine the democratic process, shut down valid public debate and to silence free speech.  

Insurance assigned a lawyer for these human rights complaints. We are concerned this will not be sufficient, given that fundamental Canadian values are at stake. With this being the case, we believe Barry Neufeld will need as much support as he can get. 

Help fight for the purity of the democratic process,  free speech, and legitimate scientific inquiry.

TLDR: Barry Neufeld is a democratically elected official and has a right to free speech.  All proceeds will go directly to Barry’s legal fund.

Free speech, use it or lose it.

September Update:  A panel review including Dr. Debrah Soh, Barbara Kay, Lindsay Shepherd, and Jared Brown, titled Bill C-16: A Year Later is linked below. Barry Neufeld's situation was discussed in connection with the challenges surrounding free speech in our country.

Dear supporters,

With your support and donations, Barry has, through his lawyer, demanded an apology for and a retraction of the defamatory statements made by Mr. Hansman. Unfortunately, (but not surprisingly) Mr. Hansman has refused to apologize for or retract any aspect of his protracted character assassination of Barry. Sadly, this decision by Mr. Hansman means that litigation will be the way to stop Mr. Hansman’s continuing defamation and to vindicate Barry’s reputation.

Regardless of your views on SOGI, valid public debate, and not character assassination, is the appropriate venue for conversation on important social issues. Barry, as an elected public official, is representing his constituency and exercising his right to free speech. If you believe in the fundamental right of democratically elected officials, or even ordinary citizens, to respectfully discuss issues in our country without being called racist, homophobic, hateful and other such vile insults by others, we hope that you will consider continuing to support Barry’s fight against this smear campaign which now must be headed into court.

Dear Supporters,

Barry Neufeld has decided to hire Paul Jaffe as legal counsel. Mr. Jaffe will be providing Barry with proactive legal advice and support. Note that all money donated to this campaign will go solely towards this purpose.

For ease of logistics and reporting, please donate here (not to Mr. Jaffe directly), as the contributions to this fund will be sent to him in trust.

We will be posting more updates as things continue to develop. Thank you for your support of Barry and of free speech.
