UCP to potentially sue CBC?

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith says she will no longer speak about her involvement in how COVID-19 court cases are being prosecuted. Smith says the UCP is considering a defamation lawsuit against the public broadcaster. Smith wants the CBC to retract its story in January that stated a member of her staff sent emails to the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service challenging how it was handling cases from COVID-19 protests at the Coutts border crossing.  Political reporter Brian Lilley tells BCN’s Hal Roberts that both the CBC and Premier Smith need to get their ducks in a row.
