A Vaughan protest group has become the target of a $100,000 libel suit after it made allegations of corruption during the municipal election campaign.

Time For Change Vaughan took out newspaper ads attacking certain candidates and endorsing others, and suggesting a condominium development had been secretly approved for part of the lands purchased for a hospital.

“The accomplishments (of the hospital corporation) achieved to date have been jeopardized,” says the statement of claim filed two weeks ago in Superior Court.

Time For Change Vaughan has yet to file a statement of defence.

Defendants

Time For Change Vaughan and its founder, Antony Niro, are named as defendants in the suit brought by the non-profit corporation formed to build the hospital and provide health services.

Municipal, regional, provincial and federal governments have committed significant funds toward the project.
