The former talk show host wants the case to be heard by a jury in Oshawa

On Wednesday, comedian and former TV and radio host Mike Bullard served Rogers Media and Chatelaine senior writer Sarah Boesveld a statement of claim for defamation. The suit asks for $6 million from the defendants: $1 million in general damages and $5 million in punitive and/or aggravated damages.

“The position of Mike Bullard is his [defamation] case is one of the most egregious, he’s suffered harm. He’s lost his job, he’s having a difficult time finding alternative employment,” Bullard’s lawyer, Joseph Villeneuve, says in a phone interview.
