In early 2008, Canwest brought a lawsuit against activist Mordecai Briemberg, claiming that he was involved in creating a spoof of the Vancouver Sun produced in the summer of 2007.
Since then, Canwest has added to the writ the names of the two actual producers of the spoof, Gordon Murray and Carel Moiseiwitsch. In mid-November, Canwest dropped Briemberg's name from the suit.
Anne Roberts is with the Seriously Free Speech committee, set up to defend the three activists against what they are calling a SLAPP suit. She explains what the most recent developments mean.
