    IBEW president Hill upholds Canadian member's rights - By Matt Noyes, Union Democracy Review #167
    In March, IBEW International President Ed Hill overturned discipline imposed on Perry Speranza, a member of Toronto Local 353, and ordered the local to refund his fines. Speranza had been found guilty 'of posting or permitting to be posted on the OurLocal353.ca web site material that he knew or should have known to be untrue, that would affect the reputation of Local 353.' Speranza owns and operates the independent, open forum site. The disciplinary charges had been brought by the local's business manager, Joe Fashion, in an effort to shut down the site. Speranza was fined $1,000, with an additional $5,000 held in abeyance pending good behavior; he was ordered to remove the offensive material and not allow 'untrue' statements to be posted in the future.
