Talk show guest sues for online defamation

A Muslim woman is suing for defamatory statements after speaking out against the Quebec Charter on a local talk show.

According to The Gazette, Dalila Awada is suing two people and a website for $120,000.00

She says several hateful messages were posted after she appeared on ICI Radio-Canada's Tout le monde en parle in September 2013. 

Awada says she has become depressed, had to drop out of school, and had since been suffering from insomnia. 

In her lawsuit, she says she will donate any money she recieves from the case to the non-profit organization Fondation Paroles De femmes.
