  1. * Bob LeDrew says:

    Great interview with Omar Ha-redeye in this episode, especially that last question, about what the industry should or could change from his perspective.

    I wanted to add to that with this link to the excellent (even for non-lawyers) blog SLAW:

    The story here is that The Coast, a Halifax newsweekly, published a story about discrimination allegations in the Halifax Fire Department ( That story garnered a number of anonymous comments which were apparently insulting to the chief and deputy chief.

    The chief and deputy went to the Supreme Court to discover the identity of the anonymous commenters and were given the ability to get that information.

    However, I’m not sure what this means for PR practice. Ethical PR practitioners wouldn’t leave anonymous defamatory comments, I think. So … what’s it mean? I don’t see any implications for we flacks, except that in Nova Scotia, there may be fewer trolls online.
