Statement regarding legal action by Kerry Diotte

The Gateway confirms that its legal counsel has received a Statement of Claim from Mr. Diotte’s legal counsel regarding two articles. Following the receipt of a Defamation Act notice from Mr. Diotte, an editor’s note was added to both articles on November 15, retracting the statements and apologizing. The Gateway is in the process of reviewing the Statement of Claim, and will be filing a Statement of Defence in due course. Pending the filing of that Statement of Defence, the Gateway is not able to provide any additional comment on this matter.
