Aurora Mayor Sues Local Bloggers For Defamation

by Toronto Defamation Lawyer, Gil Zvulony

The Toronto Star is reporting that Aurora mayor sues local bloggers.  Apparently, the lawsuit revolves around comments made on auroracitizen.ca that criticize the mayor.
I am always concerned when I hear of a politician suing for defamation.  I expect our politicians to have thicker skin than the average person.     When they enter public life they should be prepared to accept harsh criticism.  I think politicians should sue the electorate in the rarest of cases.  This cannot be good politics. Suing the citizenry does nothing to advance democracy.
