Canadian Woman Owes Neighbor $65,000 over Facebook Post

A Canadian woman has been ordered to pay more than £45,000 after making unfounded accusations on Facebook suggesting her neighbour was a paedophile who set up mirrors and cameras in his backyard to spy on her children.

A judge has ruled that Katherine Van Nes' online posts were 'completely false and unjustified' and had a devastating effect on Douglas Pritchard and his career as a music teacher.
