Conservative Party drops libel suit

CANADA - The Conservative Party of Canada has dropped its $3.5 million libel and defamation suit against the Liberal Party concerning the Chuck Cadman Affair.

In 2005 the Conservative Party tried to bribe Independent MP Chuck Cadman, who was dying from terminal cancer, with a $1 million life insurance policy which would have seen his wife Dona Cadman left with a lump sum payment.

According to recorded conversations Prime Minister Stephen Harper knew about the attempt to bribe Chuck Cadman (who is now dead) and sued the Liberal Party for defamation in an attempt to muzzle the controversy after the Liberal party accused the Prime Minister having knowledge of alleged unethical and even illegal behaviour by the Conservatives

Today the suit has ended and lawyers for both sides declined to discuss the reasons for the abrupt ending to the lawsuit launched March 2008.

So apparently the muzzle has worked.
