In its statement of claim, filed in Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench, True North says it has repeatedly asked the CBC to remove from the Internet what it says are inaccurate articles.
“Pure North’s reputation and work has been severely damaged as the result of an unrelenting broadcast campaign by the CBC and the reporters through various media which has had the result of damage to Pure North by spreading disinformation and mistruths about Pure North’s operation and practices,” it states
“Pure North has repeatedly requested that the CBC change its reporting to publicize accurate facts, and Pure North has supported its request with multiple pieces of scientific research and practice guidelines for medical practitioners which supports Pure North’s practices and operations.
“But CBC has refused to retract, correct, or apologize for its inaccurate reporting which it continues to publish on the Internet.”
The lawsuit details 28 separate paragraphs it says point to defamatory content published by the broadcaster.
