victim and to the wider community, the vindication of these fundamental,
although intangible, rights which have been violated by the wrongdoer”.53
 Stinson J. then reviewed the factors approved by the
Supreme Court of Canada in Blackwater v. Plint, a sexual abuse
case.54 The factors included:
— The age and vulnerability of the victim. When the video was
posted, the plaintiff was an 18-year-old university student.
— The number, frequency and nature of the assaults. Stinson J.
characterized the defendant’s actions in posting the video as
“very invasive and degrading”. There was no way to know
how many times it had been viewed, copied and downloaded.
The defendant showed the video to his friends, who were also
acquaintances of the plaintiff. The judge concluded that,
“Although there was no physical violence, in these circumstances, especially in light of the multiple times the video was
viewed by others and, more importantly, the potential for the
video still to be in circulation, it is appropriate to regard this as
tantamount to multiple assaults on the plaintiff’s dignity.”55
— The defendant’s age and whether he was in a position of
trust. The defendant was also 18 years old, and had been in
an intimate, and thus trusting relationship with the plaintiff
over a long period of time. He had specifically assured the
plaintiff that, if she sent him the video, he would not share
it with anyone else. The posting of the video was therefore
a breach of trust.
— The consequences of the wrongful behaviour on the victim,
including psychological injuries. Stinson J. described the
consequences to Jane Doe 464533 as “emotionally and psychologically devastating” and ongoing.
 Weighing these factors, Stinson J. awarded the plaintiff
$50,000 in general damages, $25,000 in aggravated damages and
$25,000 in punitive damages, for a total of $100,000. He did
not adhere to the $20,000 limit set in Jones v. Tsige because, in
