Communicating responsibly

Session hashtag: #CAJ16commsThanks to Grant v. Torstar Corp. and Quan v. Cusson, responsible communication was brought into Canadian jurisprudence.It’s become case law that reinforced journalistic best practices when dealing with subjects facing potentially libelous allegations — so that the publication or broadcast of material in the public interest is not held up by that same subject’s refusal to address the allegations.Kathy Tomlinson has first-hand experience with this defence against prosecution for libel, based on work she completed when part of the CBC Go Public team. Together with potential guests, she’ll lead a discussion based on her experiences that will give any journalist the information needed to use responsible communication to support their work.
