The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was ordered to pay just under $300,000 in legal fees on top of the near $1.7 million it owes after a successful defamation lawsuit was filed by a man that claims CBC ruined his life by defaming him. This is the costliest defamation case in Manitoba’s history, according to Blacklock’s reporter.
CBC was caught spreading fake news again. However, this time it cost them, and ultimately the taxpayers, heavily. After a successful defamation lawsuit was filed by an investment advisor due to CBC’s inaccurate and defamatory coverage, the company is being forced to pay just below $2 million. The initial judgement was $1,659,403, with the judge recently awarding costs at $295,017.15. The judgement on costs was delivered on Mar. 4, 2022.
