Academic Petition

Threats Against Freedom of Expression and Academic Freedom
by Canadian Companies

Écosociété, a small publisher based in Quebec, and authors Alain Deneault, Delphine Abadie and William Sacher are facing two lawsuits over the publication of Noir Canada. Pillage, corruption et criminalité en Afrique, in the spring of 2008. The Canadian mining corporation Barrick Gold is suing them in Quebec for an amount of 6 M $ and Banro Corporation is suing them in Ontario for an amount of 5 M $. They alleged that the book is libellous and that the defendants have orchestrated an international campaign to harm their reputation.

Noir Canada is a book that surveys the claims that have been made concerning Canadian companies suggesting that they are partly responsible for crimes that have been committed in Africa for the sake of economic development. In particular, the book exposes the activities of Canadian mining and oil companies in Africa. As a result of rapidly rising raw material prices, these companies which are exploiting African land with the complicity of local authorities (but often to the detriment of local populations), have been recording colossal profits in the last few years. In 2003, 53% of the active mining companies in Africa were Canadian. Their levels of investment are forecast to reach 14 billion dollars by 2010.

In writing their book, the author and his collaborators used UN and government sources, the reports of respected NGOs (such as Human Rights Watch), and the writings of broadly recognized specialists in this area. Many reputable international media journals, such as Le Monde, Le Monde diplomatique, Le Devoir, À Bâbord and France Culture, have declared that Noir Canada was a necessary book. More than 60 publishers from 30 countries have declared their undivided support for the Quebec publisher and are calling on the protagonists of the Noir Canada affair to respect the rights of freedom of expression and publication.

Over 200 organisations have also showed their support, such as the Council of Canadians and the Canadian Labor Congress (CLC).

Noam Chomsky, Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein are among the public figures that support Écosociété and the authors in their battle for the freedom of expression and for academic freedom.

Strategic lawsuits against public participation

Strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPP) seriously threaten freedom of expression and weaken public debate. They most often take the form of a civil libel action, instigated against an individual or an organization taking a stand in the context of an issue of public interest. SLAPPs also include the threat of legal proceedings. In fact, their success results not so much from the prospect of legal victory in court but from the process itself, which aims to intimidate the defendant, by placing such a heavy financial burden on them that they are forced into silence. The plaintiff usually therefore attacks isolated individuals or small organisations, and will use the threat of damages which are completely excessive in relation to the harm that the plaintiff has allegedly suffered. If the threats do not have the desired effect, legal proceedings are instigated, with the result that a public issue is transformed into private litigation. All the financial and emotional resources of the defendants will therefore be monopolised in their defense, to the detriment of promoting the socio-economic, environmental or cultural cause they have been fighting for.

In Quebec, since the Barrick lawsuit has been launch in April of 2008, the authors and the publisher’s employees have already faced the burdens of the proceedings, through entire days of depositions and countless hours in the elaboration of their defense.

We are concerned about what is now taking place in Quebec and Ontario. This is a battle for the right to information and for freedom of expression. As university professors and concerned citizens, we are also worried with the fact that these lawsuits affect academic freedom. SLAPPs impose unacceptable limitations on freedom of expression, academic freedom and deliberative democracy. These lawsuits are brought in the absence of any meaningful public debate. They are filed by companies or institutions against individuals or activist groups, aimed at neutralizing or censuring public criticism of their activities.

One of the prejudicial effects of SLAPPs suits is to divert socially concerned intellectuals and academics from their main mission – publishing books of public interest and, in this specific case, provoking a debate on Canada’s responsibility in the pillaging of Africa- by mobilizing all of their financial and human resources to ensure their legal defense.

Throughout the summer of 2008, the Écosociété team and authors of Noir Canada have worked flat out to produce a defense document of many hundreds of pages that was submitted in Court on August 21st, as a part of their defense in the trial against Barrick. This document demonstrates the credibility of the abundant sources that underlie the book’s thesis, as well as the legitimacy and seriousness of the authors’ and editors’ approach.

As for Banro, they have recognized the right of the authors and Ecosociété to defend themselves in court, but may demand in advance the court fees that would be owed if they were to lose, which would most likely bring them to immediate bankruptcy. Pro bono lawyers from the uOttawa-Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic went to an Ontario court defending the authors and their small Quebec publisher arguing that Banro’s lawsuit does not belong in Ontario Courts, since “Noir Canada was written in French, by francophones, and targeted at Quebecers,” said lawyer Linda McCaffrey, Director of the Environmental Law Clinic, a partnership between the University of Ottawa and Ecojustice (formerly Sierra Legal Defence Fund).

Unfortunately, in a motion which ostensibly favored the company and its “reputation’s right”, the Ontario courts decided in February 2009 that the lawsuit could be filed in Ontario despite the fact that the book is in French and that only 83 copies are circulating in Ontario. This means that they must cover the legal costs involved (approximately 25000$). They decided to put the matter to the Ontario court of appeal, but if they lose again, they will be bankrupt. For Ecosociété et al., this is a nightmare. They can’t afford the financial and human costs of two legal procedures in different languages and in provinces that have two different legal codes.

An Anti-Slapp Law in Ontario?

Last June, in Quebec, Bill 9 (An Act to amend the Code of Civil Procedure to prevent abusive use of the courts and promote freedom of expression and citizen participation in public debate), aimed at constraining such lawsuits, was adopted. Quebec is the only Canadian province that protects freedom of expression against SLAPPS.

Canadian intellectuals are seldom read or understood, nor are they particularly influential, but in this case, the government must listen to them, since the matter directly affects freedom of expression and academic freedom.

We call on the mining companies such as Barrick Gold and Banro to immediately abandon the proceedings taken out against the publisher Écosociété, its board of directors and the authors of the book Noir Canada. These powerful companies are also harming themselves with such practices. Barrick has a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and a Social Responsibility Charter; their communications emphasize its exemplary approach in this area. How should we therefore understand the unjustified, aggressive and disproportionate legal attack that they have instigated? Might we not think, in light of their actions, that the values they lay claim to are nothing more than crude strategic posturing?

Freedom of expression is under threat everywhere; this is not something specific to Canada. Academics and intellectuals need to be able to contribute their critical viewpoints without having to do so in a climate of fear. Their professions are fragile; and their social and civic actions, which result from their role as “agitators and distributors of ideas”, often go unrecognized. They are, however, very real. One thing is certain : censorship and its new forms always end up doing disservice to those who implement them, who use and abuse them. And this also applies to those who simply turn a blind eye.

So we also call on the Ontario government to adopt an Anti-Slapp law immediately.
