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.
