Marineland has a right to deny some people entry to its park and to try to ensure that those who want to visit the park can access it safely. However, the steps that it has taken in court to date, and those that are threatened by its legal team, go well beyond these rights. We should all be allowed to protest on issues that we believe in without fearing a lawsuit and without being told which words we can use to make our point. And we should all be concerned when our courts, already overburdened and inaccessible to so many with pressing legal needs, are used by a corporate actor to silence its critics.

By now, you know all you need to about Marineland. You know that it's a house of horrors for the animals that live there. Some time has elapsed since the initial uproar, and much of it has been spent sending kids back to school or catching a TIFF film or two. We now find ourselves in a scary limbo.
