Daniel Dale Sue Rob Ford

Star reporter serves Rob Ford with libel notice

Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale has served Rob Ford with notice of libel for comments the Mayor made that suggested Dale might be a pedophile. "I am also serving Vision TV, which twice broadcast Ford's vile and defamatory remarks to Conrad Black even though their interview was filmed days before it aired," he writes in an article published on his paper's website. Although Dale had previously been torn about proceeding with legal action, he claims today that "enough's enough."

Dale explains that Ford's refusal to back down from his claims pushed the reporter over the edge. "I'm asking Ford to immediately retract the false insinuation that I am a pedophile and all of his false statements about my conduct on May 2, 2012," Dale explains. "I'm also asking Ford and Vision owner ZoomerMedia to apologize immediately "publicly, abjectly, unreservedly and completely."

So, Dale has given the Mayor an out. All he needs to do is apologize to make this suit go away. Will he?
