In his 2016 Statement of Claim and subsequent Reply, Ezra made a number of disturbing claims about me, insisting that I had accused him specifically and publicly of a number of illegal activities, including (but not limited to) "accounting fraud", "tax evasion", "embezzling donations", "cheating donors" ... the list goes on but, rather than bore you here with that list, I am going to save time and redirect you to a piece I wrote in 2019, wherein ... oh, just go read it and come on back, where we will summarize the jaw-dropping weirdness of what you just read. I'll wait.
Dum de dum dum ...
Now, let me summarize to make sure there is no confusion about what you just read:
- Ezra Levant specifically claimed that I accused him publicly of various flavours of criminal activity.
- In order to rebut these claims, I performed a savagely comprehensive search of my own Twitter timeline, not just for those exact phrases, but for any and all reasonable variations of those words, just so I could not be accused of cherry-picking.
- I documented the results of those searches, which proved incontrovertibly that I had never, at any time, made a single one of those accusations, and I presented that evidence to the motions judge.
- The motions judge ignored every bit of that evidence completely, and "found" that I had defamed Ezra by allegedly saying all of the things I had just established were utter fabrications from beginning to end.
There will be more posts on an occasional basis, and thanks for stopping by.
P.S. If you follow the GoFundMe page, you'll be notified when there is a new "Chronicles of Ezra" post. Or you can just drop by whenever you want. Either way works for me.
Is it possible that you might have made these accusations on some other social media and not Twitter? Did Ezra identify where he got these phrases from?
Anon: A reasonable question; at the time, my social media participation was exclusively through my CC Twitter account and nowhere else, so there is no way those phrases could have come from elsewhere.
More to the point, Ezra never provided a shred of evidence that I had published any of those phrases; his evidence did not include a single screenshot of any example. As I said, the motions judge was presented with my evidence, she clearly didn't give a shit, and simply copied and pasted from Ezra's submissions.
