N.B. judge rules affidavits inadmissible in Irving case
Last Updated: Friday, October 19, 2007 | 7:59 PM AT
A New Brunswick judge has thrown out affidavits meant to show the Irving media empire is using anti-competitive business practices to keep a former employee from starting a rival newspaper.
William Kenneth Langdon, former publisher of an Irving-owned weekly newspaper, filed the papers Thursday but Brunswick News Inc., owned by J.K. Irving, asked the Court of Queen's Bench on Friday to strike them from the record.
The affidavits were sworn by Ariane Whiting, a former employee of Irving's advertising flyer distribution company in Bathurst, and Gary Windsor, the owner of a flyer distribution business also in Bathurst.
Brunswick News lawyer Stephen Hutchison told Justice Peter Glennie that the affidavits contain extremely serious, unproven allegations that the company was engaging in anti-competitive business practices.
Hutchison characterized the affidavits as irrelevant, inflammatory and extremely prejudicial to the Irving company.
In Thailand? They parade the guy in front of all the media. They forced the guy to sit down while the Media is all around the table.
Would this system work in Canada?
How come we don't follow the same action?
