"Full faith and credit" is a legal term of art that may apply to the enforcement of judgments by foreign governments. Without cooperation between governments, in enforcing the fair judgments of foreign courts, international business could collapse. Therefore there are built in procedures that enable the enforcement of judgments across borders.
The law tends to be very fact specific so it's difficult to say exactly how this will play ou
Facebook is going to get nothing from this guy, Canadian courts do not participate in these wacky judgements. As long as he stays away from the US, he will be fine.
<it really pains me to defend a spammer>
I belive in Alberta they can't take your house if you have less than $40,000 or so in equity. Other provinces, you are only allowed the tools of your trade up to $5000, so I guess he gets to keep his computer since this is the tool of his trade :)
