Earlier, we reported North Vancouver incumbent candidate Ted White had threatened legal action against an election commentary Website for posting defamatory emails. Those emails suggested the Conservative MP is a racist. The offending comments were removed by the site's moderator Milton Chan. But that might not be the end of the story. In a comment posted on Public Eye last night, Mr. White's parliamentary assistant George Pringle questioned Mr. Chan's political motivations. He then added his boss, "may have decided that it was a waste of time to take this Milton activist to court for now, but I've saved every post (on his Website)...and I feel very strongly that people like Milton have to be taken through the legal system as an example, so hopefully (the Internet) won't just be full of scumbags like him." The following are exerpts from Mr. Pringle's posting.
Name: George Pringle
For quite a while, Milton has "predicted" elections but his real agenda has been a project which attempts to shape the direction of the election through his selective approval of postings. He then changes his predictions at the last minute to claim a success rate and collect money through advertising.
A reporter would investigate Milton's con job rather than refer to and further misrepresent lies that he was legally forced to remove from his site due to his editing of Hansard transcripts.
Hmmm...you want a story...most serious people on the net know the special interest group (not just his federal Liberal connection) that Milton is involved with and thus his political bias and the game he is playing.
Ted may have decided for now that it was a waste of time to take this Milton activist to court but I've saved every post for this case, which includes his editing of Hansard, and I feel very strongly that people like Milton have to be taken through the legal system as an example, so hopefully this medium won't just be full of scumbags like him.
