Justice Ann Marie Smith has ordered community activist Mary John to pay $6,000 in compensation to the woman she spread false information about, plus an additional $2,000 to the state.

John was found guilty after a brief judge-alone trial for spreading false information electronically to cause insult and hatred.

The incident occurred on October 5, 2021, when John posted an image on social media falsely accusing the woman of being the suspected killer of Piccadilly resident Jane Finch.
