Ontario Cabinet Minister Launches Defamation Lawsuit against The Globe and Mail
Aug 8 15
An Ontario cabinet minister has launched a defamation lawsuit against the Globe and Mail over articles that said Canadian intelligence agents had expressed concerns about his unusually close ties to Chinese officials. The statement of claim by Michael Chan makes good on a libel notice he sent the paper last month after it refused to retract its stories or apologize. In the unproven claim filed with Superior Court this week, the minister for citizenship, immigration and international trade says the backdrop to the articles is five years old, when the then-director of Canada's spy service said, without naming names, that some Canadian politicians were under the influence of a foreign government. The story appeared to go away after the B.C. and Ontario governments said they had no concerns - until the Globe published its front-page story in mid-June. The suit, which names Globe publisher Phillip Crawley, its editor-in-chief David Walmsley, and reporter Craig Offman, seeks $4.5 million in general and punitive damages. It also seeks $50,000 from Charles Burton, a political science professor at Brock University, who wrote a column in the Globe in which Charles Burton said Chan was under the undue influence of the government of China.
Staff, Globe and Mail Reach Tentative Deal
Jul 9 14
Unionized employees of the Globe and Mail reached a tentative agreement with the national newspaper this afternoon mere minutes before a deadline for journalists, advertising sales reps and circulation staff to walk off the job. The recommended deal will be presented to the membership, represented by Unifor, for a ratification vote in short order. No details of the tentative agreement will be released before then. The Globe and Mail's 374 unionized employees have been in a legal strike position since July 1. They turned down a company offer on July 2 by 92.3 percent. Both sides returned to the bargaining table for two days with respected mediator Kevin Burkett to try to reach a deal.
