    From Niagara This Week:

    An animal rights activist who filed a complaint with Niagara Regional Police after a confrontation with Marineland owner John Holer has dismissed a lawsuit filed against him by the park.

    “Their Statement of Claim is frivolous and has almost nothing to do with me, personally,” Mike Garrett said after he was served with court documents informing him the 52-year-old theme park is seeking $1.5 million — general damages of $1 million and punitive damages of $500,000. “In their claim, Marineland makes numerous absurd and false allegations about myself.”

    From Sun News:

    Marineland has filed its second lawsuit in less than a month.

    This time the marine-animal theme park is taking aim at Marineland Animal Defense founder Dylan Powell.

    The statement of claim was filed at the St. Catharines courthouse Friday afternoon.

    It asks for a permanent restraint from Powell and his company from trespassing on Marineland’s property, the Niagara Falls Animal Medical Centre’s property, Marineland owner John Holer’s property, Marineland veterinarian June Mergl’s property and any residence or private property owned by a Marineland employee.

    It also says Powell can’t protest within 500 metres of any of those properties.

    In addition, Powell is being sued for $1.5 million for general damages.
