Ron Gray explains the rare circumstances that allow an appeal to a Supreme Court of Canada decision. Among the circumstances are if significant evidence was missed in the trial, and if justice was thwarted by or in the High Court. Both these circumstances exist in this case, and to ignore the proof would be to compound the injustice even further. Does Canada's highest court have the integrity to correct its own errors, or will they have to be forced by Parliamentary intervention to obey the law?
Ron Gray delves into the possible (probable?) motives of why the Supreme Court of Canada went out of its way to defame Kari Simpson and deny her right to a re-trial after changing the law in their decision in order to rule against her. Presented in this episode is more archival proof of why the judicial system has felt threatened by Simpson's long and public opposition of judicial corruption.
Ron Gray reviews the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in the matter of WIC vs. Simpson. Included is the actual recording of Kari Simpson's rally speech that Rafe Mair likened to Hitler and the KKK. Also, to illustrate how Justice Ian Binnie and Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin compounded Rafe Mair's defamation by repeating his lies as so-called facts, this episode has several historical video clips of how Kari Simpson actually stood up for the civil rights of gays, lesbians, and all Canadians.
Ron Gray takes us through the process of appealing a court decision to the Supreme Court of Canada. Citing historic and literary sources and case law, we learn how Canada's Supreme Court cherry picks the cases it will hear. In the case of Rafe Mair's proven defamation of Kari Simpson, we learn how Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin's ideology and warped perception of the Supreme Court's role in Canadian lawmaking made this particular case very tasty indeed.
Ron Gray steers Drive For Justice into the courtroom of the British Columbia Court of Appeal, where Rafe Mair's inexplicable exoneration by "Justice" M. Marvyn Koenigsberg was decidedly overturned by Justices Southin, Thackray, and Prowse. Kari Simpson wins her case against Rafe Mair, who was found guilty of malicious libel. While the Appeals decision itself repeated some of Mair's lies as apparent facts, the case was nonetheless settled. Or was it? Tune in to find out what happens next!
Ron Gray takes us point-by-point through "Justice" M. Marvyn Koenigsberg's schizophrenic verdict in Kari Simpson's defamation case against the liar Rafe Mair – a verdict that was so contradictory and contrary to the facts of the case that is begged the question: Was the judge being silly, stupid, or sinister? Tune in the hear why the appeals court had absolutely no problem tossing the verdict out.
Ron Gray interviews Kari Simpson about the closing of her first (yes, more follow!) defamation trial against the lying shock jock Rafe Mair, and the bizarre "settlement conference" that "Justice" M. Marvyn Koenigsberg called before she was forced to settle the case on her own (and once you hear her legal decision, you'll understand why she wanted somebody else to take it off her hands!). This "ending" is just the beginning…
Host Ron Gray continues taking us through the initial BC Supreme Court trial of Kari Simpson v. Rafe Mair et al in which Simpson accused Mair of defamation – and pulls back the curtain to reveal that the trial judge herself was on the defence side of her husband's own defamation case. This obvious conflict of interest should have resulted in the judge recusing herself, but listen to what shenanigans happened instead…
Ron Gray takes us into the original Supreme Court of British Columbia trial in which Kari Simpson's lawsuit against shock jock Rafe Mair and his radio station was heard by Justice Mary Marvyn Koenigsberg who – unbeknownst to Simpson at the time – was embroiled in her own anti-defamation lawsuit. You'll hear the arguments made in defence of Rafe Mair's outlandish lies and slanders against an innocent defender of family rights, and hear why "Justice" Koenigsberg might be inclined to look the other way.
Ron Gray interviews Kari Simpson about the "discovery" portion of her defamation lawsuit against Rafe Mair and his employer, CKNW (WIC Radio). As you will hear, the fix was already in; Rafe Mair's story changes from public venue to discovery to the actual trial as he and his lawyer take advantage of the court's willingness to bend in their direction.
