‘Exceedingly political’ libel case pits free speech advocate Ezra Levant against ‘master of lawfare’
In his defence, Mr. Levant stands by the “liar” claim, which hinges on Mr. Awan’s statement that he offered to drop the complaints ifÂ Maclean’sÂ would publish a rebuttal piece by a “mutually acceptable” author, and also whether he and his fellow complainants asked for money, or a charitable donation. He also states in his defence that the Canadian Islamic Congress is “an anti-Semitic organization.”
