Where Is Jan Vahey? Where Is The Canadian Press

It has been twelve days since the Calgary Police Chif, Jack Beaton, used an Anton Piller order from a local court to silence an internal critic under the guise of a slander civil case. Beaton conducted a raid on her and her husband's house, confiscated computer equipment, and most chillingly has forced her to remain silent about her own case under threat of imprisonment. Vahey could go to prison indefinitely because she dared to air critisim about the police chief on the Internet.

The Canadian media rightfully complained about the publication ban on the Jean Brault testimony at the Gomery Inquiry. Why have we not seen any follow-up reporting on Vahey's oppressed status since the raid on her house? Have Canadian journalists reconciled themselves to Calgary's police state?
