BATTLECRESTER, N.H. — For some of the first time, Canada’s largest newspaper has been put on notice.
A Canadian newspaper, the Financial Post, is on trial in the United States over an allegation that it lied to readers about the impact of the federal election campaign on its print advertising business.
The paper filed for bankruptcy in the U-S.
on Thursday after an investigation found the newspaper lied about the election’s impact.
The Canadian Press has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which allows creditors to recover assets.
“The Financial Post is a tabloid and has no place in a free society,” the newspaper’s president, Kevin Murphy, said in a statement.
The federal election has been a hot-button issue in the Conservative party’s election campaign, with Mr. Harper trying to court blue-collar voters by emphasizing his business background.
It has been seen as a major setback for Mr. Mulcair, whose campaign has focused heavily on the economy.
The newspaper is accused of telling readers that its print business would suffer if the election result was different, but that its ad revenues would rise because of the change.
In fact, it would rise at a faster pace than the economy, according to the investigation by the National Arbitration Centre in Halifax, which is run by the U,S.
The investigation found that the financial newspaper did not actually have any advertising revenues that it claimed in its November 11 release.
The newspaper’s statement on Friday accused the Justice Department of using the bankruptcy filing as a political weapon.
It said the paper had been operating a newspaper in the UK for over a decade.
It was established in 2001, the statement said, and has been operating for more than 20 years.
It said in its statement that it would be filing for bankruptcy protection and seeking a court order to stop any actions that would have an adverse effect on its operations.
Mr. Murphy said the financial paper was not a threat to Canadian media.
“It’s just a tabloid, but it’s a tabloid.
It’s a newspaper that publishes a daily newspaper, but is also a political newspaper,” he said.
On Thursday, the Justice department filed a lawsuit in U.K. federal court in London against the Financial Press, alleging it “published false and defamatory articles” in November.
The lawsuit says the Financial Review “published and distributed false and misleading information to the British public about the costs of its political advertisements and its relationship with its advertisers and distributors.”
The case is still pending.
In its lawsuit, the government said the Financial Times’ articles, which were published in newspapers including the Financial Express, The Sun and the Sun-Herald, had “incited hatred, violence and racial vilification against the Canadian people, and threatened their safety and security.”
It said a similar case was filed in Canada in 2016 against the Montreal Gazette, but the case was thrown out after it was found the government had not proved any actual harm to the paper.
The Canadian Press said it was not affected by the newsprint case.
