The Sentencing of James Sears

the sentencing of james sears, promoter of violence against women

In April  2019, we attended the sentencing hearing of James Sears, editor of ‘Your Ward News’, which propagates misogyny and violence against women, among other hate crimes.

James was ultimately sentenced to the maximum one year in prison for promoting hatred against women. Our team was interviewed by Global News and other media channels.

Court support and solidarity for cases of gender-based violence is powerful.
