Canwest sues Tyee and columnist

Canwest is suing Vancouver-based online publication The Tyee
and columnist Raif Mair for libel. At issue is a Mair column published by
the Tyee on Dec. 24 that Canwest claims was defamatory and malicious. In an apology published
Jan. 17, Mair acknowledged the column contained errors. The column now
appears to have been removed from the Tyee site.

More information is available in a story published by the Vancouver Sun, a Canwest newspaper.
