On July 11, comedian and former talk show host Mike Bullard delivered a trio of libel notices to journalists who wrote about the fallout from his criminal case the prior month.
Through his lawyer, Bullard served notices regarding two articles and three tweets he believes defamed him, naming both individual journalists and the parent companies of their respective publications: Toronto Star columnist Heather Mallick and Torstar Corporation; HuffPost Canada editor-in-chief Andree Lau and AOL Canada; and Chatelaine senior writer Sarah Boesveld and Rogers Media.
