Commentaire / Comment
Sun News Network repeatedly aired false and libelous information about me and my husband, even after being told that the information was false.
On Ezra Levant's show "The faces of Idle No More" on
January 24, 2013 (see: http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/video/2114639455001) Ezra Levant erroneously stated that me and my husband were at a Sun media protest, then accusing us of being professional protesters. In this newscast, Ezra clearly intends to demean me and my husband and ridicule us on air.
Neither me nor my husband was even in the country when that protest took place, nor have we been anywhere near Toronto since Jan. 1 of this year. After writing Sun to tell them that the information that they aired was false, demanding an apology, Sun actually aired the program again!
There has to be some accountability. This is the just tip of the iceberg in terms of their racist, misleading, and at times outright false programming.
Thank you for your consideration.
Raisons pour comparaitre / Reasons for appearance
I do not need to appear at the hearing, but I can present evidence that I was out of the country (from Jan 1 until Feb 28) and I can also attest to other programming that I have seen that is blatantly racist.
I am told she is considering legal action. Get in line, young lady.
