Stop the Litigation of Whistleblowers

I gave up my job as a police officer, my salary, and still the police service is coming after me for speaking up about what goes on inside a police service.  I never agreed to keep silent about my experiences working for the Waterloo Regional Police Service, yet they are litigating me to try to silence me.  They are litigating me for speaking up, although I did not agree to a non-disclosure clause when I resigned.  The police service has spent over $203,000 to prosecute me, and yet I am self-represented and doing everything on my own.

I am fighting to protect freedom of expression for all Ontarians by improving our Anti-SLAPP laws.  I filed a Notice of Constitutional Question and our Attorney General recently decided "not to intervene."  I am not giving up. Police services should not be able to use the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal to silence critics.

I am now in need of funds to continue to fight them.  I was ordered by Justice Micheal Doi to pay the legal bill of the WRPS ($5,500), and I am not giving up. 

Please help me to keep fighting and appeal the recent decision, as well as the ongoing case at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal to try to silence me.

UPDATE: I was successful in appeal court, so the cost order of Justice Doi has been set aside. THANK YOU! I could not have even filed the appeal without the financial support of people like you.  Now, I have a long fight ahead of me, but I am not giving up.

They are waiting for me to run out of money and support, but the fact that this movement is growing should be telling them something.

Any help is appreciated.
