The Canadian Association of Journalists is speaking out against court rulings that could compel journalists in Quebec and Ontario to reveal their sources. On Jan. 22, 2008 a federal court judge ordered two La Presse reporters to reveal the source of a document leaked about a suspect being held on a security certificate. CAJ president Mary Agnes Welch warns the order could have “a chilling effect” on sources. The association also announced it will intervene in an appeal that could overturn a 2004 finding that Hamilton Spectator reporter Ken Peters was in contemopt of court when he refused to name a source.
