Funding FAQ

Help us make a stand for free speech in Canada, and set a precedent for the world!  We have a GoFundMe page to collect donations.

Wondering where the money will go?

Monies raised by this campaign will be used to cover non-lawyer-fee expenses associated with the case (such as research, expert witnesses, office and filing expenses), and also communications expenses. To that end, we need to raise around $100,000 – roughly 80% for legal expenses and 20% for communications.

Will donated monies be used to pay lawyers’ fees?

No. The lawyers arguing this case (Sujit Choudhry and Joel Bakan) will only be paid out of costs awards in the plaintiffs’ favour (if we win), and/or grant monies applied for to cover such fees.

Why are we seeking more than $100,000?

To cover the risk of adverse cost awards against the plaintiffs. That will only be a problem if we lose, and even then it’s uncertain how much will be at stake – it could range from a token amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. But we need to be prepared, which explains why we’re asking for more than the bare expenses.

What happens if there is no adverse cost award?

If, after all proceedings are complete, the plaintiffs have no costs liabilities, and other expenses (excluding lawyers’ fees) have been covered, any remaining monies raised by this campaign will be returned to donors in allotments proportionate to their original donations.
