Targeted professionally on numerous occasions with spurious charges of “unprofessional conduct” lodged with law societies in Canada.
Background and contribution:
Undoubtedly the finest constitutional and civil rights lawyer of his generation in Canada, Christie is known for his exceptional defenses of Ernst ZÃ¼ndel, Jim Keegstra, Malcolm Ross, Imre Finta and many other persecuted dissidents in Canada – and even the octogenarian, aristocratic Lady Birdwood in England. Under constant threat by busybodies in various law societies, usually the target of Jewish Holocaust Lobbyist complaints, Christie has frequently been intimidated during the ZÃ¼ndel trials by judges who threatened him with contempt of court when he called their arbitrary decisions into question. He is hated by all enemies of freedom, by many groveling politicians and the intellectual prostitutes in the Canadian media establishment. Christie has headed the ZÃ¼ndel legal defense team for over 15 years.
