I can't imagine anything more stupid than this. This is politics, not a tort. Misrepresentation of reality is what Question Period is based on. Surely the Tories remember when they spun stories about Shawinigate, billion dollar boondoggles, etc. that were super-torqued. Hell, I wish someone would make these idiots take their case into court.
Never has a government with so much room to grow self-destructed so publicly. Never has a Canadian government been so thin-skinned, so paranoid and so quick to kill off any good will shown by the press and the public.
I know what Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien would have told them to do with their libel notice.
