The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

Correction: Canwest parody lawsuit

In a story posted March 5 on The Hook, The Tyee reported that B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elliott Myers described a defence argument in a lawsuit involving a parody issue of The Vancouver Sun as, “with respect, inept.”

The story was based on oral reasons for judgement delivered in chambers by Justice Myers.

A written version of those reasons made public today shows that, in fact, Justice Myers said the argument was, “with respect, inapt.”

The full text of the reasons can be found on the B.C. Supreme Court website.
