Doug Christie, maybe Canada's most famous, but certainly her most controversial defense lawyer, has died. He is best known to revisionists for his superb performances as a defense lawyer during the 1985 and 1988 trials against the German-Canadian revisionist Ernst Zündel. Although deemed a case impossible to win, this is exactly what Christie did: In 1992 Canada's Supreme Court acquitted Ernst Zündel and erased the infamous "false news" section from Canada's penal code.
