canadaconstitutionA rather odd dispute broke out recently between me and a Canadian Blogger who seems to like to write blogs where she mentions people by name but does not like it when her name is mentioned in small blogs such as this one. In it’s face that would seem to be counterintuitive since mentioning her name would generate more readers to her blog to see what all the fuss is about.

Apparently, the Canadian blogger did not realize that Canada does have freedom of speech. While not exactly the same as the USA first amendment, it does address that right:

Fundamental freedoms

2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

  • (a) freedom of conscience and religion;
  • (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
  • (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
  • (d) freedom of association.

The blogger in question decided to threaten me by stating that if I did not remove her name off of my blog she would report me to Canadian authorities for harassment or invasion if privacy. Again this is rather odd since the bulk of her writing is about both public and non public figures that she feels like gossiping about. The bulk of her writings are of a negative nature concerning an Ohio blogger that I have also had issues with in the past.

The Ohio blogger and I worked out a simple solution to our problem. We simply quit arguing with each other and agreed to disagree when it came to certain points of view we have.

It is an option the Canadian blogger might choose to consider.
