Brian Lilley, from the Sun chain of newspapers, spoke with us a few days ago. He put together a piece entitled “Bureaucracy stomps on liberty seminar.”

Here’s an excerpt:

“They fled communist oppression in Poland in the 1980s, now the Jaworski family faces financial ruin over an anonymous complaint alleging they used their own land improperly.

Lech and Marta Jaworski came to Canada in the late ’80s after the Polish government began looking into the family’s pro-democracy activities.

They eventually settled in Orono, Ont., a small town between Oshawa and Peterborough. For the past nine years they’ve allowed their son Peter to host the Liberty Summer Seminar, a yearly gathering of people to listen to speeches about freedom. Now they face fines up to $50,000 because of a complaint about the event.

“I can’t tell you who filed the complaint,” said Clarington town clerk Pattie Barrie. “All of our complaints are kept confidential.” Lech and Marta have been summoned to appear in a Whitby court on Sept. 28 as a result of the complaint.”
