Ontario cabinet minister Michael Chan to launch libel suit against Globe and Mail

Michael Chan says he will sue a Toronto newspaper for suggesting his ties to China make him a threat to national security.

Ontario’s minister of citizenship, immigration and international trade said Friday he is “proceeding with a libel suit against the Globe and Mail in connection with the recent front-page articles about me that attracted so much attention.”

“Under the court procedures, a technical document called a ‘libel notice’ must be served before a formal claim is filed. This was done on July 14, 2015. The Globe and Mail was given a 72-hour window to apologize and retract their stories,” the Chinese-born Chan said in a statement Friday.

“I regret that I have been compelled to turn to the courts to protect my reputation, but given the unjustified tone and content of the Globe’s articles I feel I have no other choice,” he said.

In the notice of libel, Chan’s lawyers called the articles “false, malicious and defamatory.”  (more...)
