  • The taxpayer-funded CBC, which is tasked with covering this election fairly and objectively, is suing the Conservative Party of Canada.

    We put out a video which featured a total of approximately 17 seconds of CBC footage.

    17 seconds in which Andrew Coyne highlights how Justin Trudeau broke the law, and in which Justin Trudeau tells a Canadian war veteran that he is “asking for more than we can give right now.”

    The other day, the CBC sent us a letter asking us to take down the video. Despite our reservations, we complied.

    But yesterday, they served us with a legal notice anyway.

    The CBC – our publicly-funded broadcaster – is taking us to court during an election.

    Statement from the Conservative Party regarding the lawsuit filed by CBC
    October 11, 2019

    Yesterday the Conservative Party received notice from lawyers representing the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) informing us they would be suing over the use of news clips in a Conservative Party social media video.

    The Conservative Party has grave concern that this decision was made on the eve of an election that CBC is to be covering fairly and objectively. The Conservative Party considers this a complete distraction in the final days of a tightly contested election, and we will dispute this lawsuit fully.

    The video in question was removed from our platforms well before CBC lawyers made the decision to file their lawsuit.

    The 17 seconds of CBC clips in the video included Andrew Coyne highlighting how Justin Trudeau broke the law, Justin Trudeau telling a Canadian war veteran that he is “asking for more than we can give right now”, and one CBC reporter questioning why the Liberals provided Loblaws with $12 million in tax dollars to install new refrigerators.

    CBC is a taxpayer-funded entity, tasked with covering this election fairly and objectively. Canadians pay the funding CBC receives. Canadians pay the salaries for those employed at CBC. Simply, Canadians own CBC.

    When you are funded entirely by taxpayer dollars, taxpayers should be able to use the footage.

    The Copyright Act provides for fair dealing.

    Elections Canada provided further clarification on a September 11th posting to their website, namely:

    Question 35. Can a political ad contain a “news clip” without the approval of the broadcaster?
    Answer: Prior to the election period, broadcasters can decline to run a political ad on any grounds they choose, provided they treat all parties on an equitable basis. However, during the election period, they are not entitled to decline an ad unless the broadcast would be in contravention of the law. If a news clip is relatively short and is not a substantial part of the audiovisual work from which it was taken, the broadcast of the news clip in a political ad would not infringe the copyright of the owner of the audiovisual work and would not require the permission of that owner to be broadcast.

    Instead, CBC is using taxpayer dollars to sue a major political party ten days before a national election in this country.

    CBC taking Conservative Party to court over online election ad
    Public broadcaster takes federal party to court over using its TV clips in campaign commercial

    CBC is taking the Conservative Party of Canada to court for what it says is the 'unauthorized use of copyright-protected material' in an online campaign ad. The party plans to 'dispute' the action. (Nathan Denette/Canadian Press)

    The CBC is taking the Conservative Party of Canada to court for using the broadcaster's footage in an online advertisement.

    In a legal application to the Federal Court of Canada, the CBC served notice it wants the Conservative Party of Canada and its executive director, Dustin Van Vugt, to acknowledge the party "engaged in the unauthorized use of copyright-protected material."

    The court documents filed Thursday listed The National co-host Rosemary Barton and parliamentary bureau reporter John Paul Tasker as applicants in the filing, along with the CBC.

    In a statement Saturday, Jennifer McGuire, CBC News general manager and editor in chief, and Luce Julien, general director of information programming for Radio-Canada, said the court filing would be amended to remove the names of the journalists as applicants.

    "To be clear, CBC/Radio Canada was the driver of this process, not the journalists," the statement said. "CBC/Radio Canada named and added the journalists to the application because their images and content were used inappropriately. In order to avoid any confusion about the role of Rosemary Barton and John Paul Tasker, we intend to file an amendment to remove their names as applicants when the court opens on Tuesday."

    CBC-Radio Canada named the journalists in the lawsuit, according to the statement, "because their images and journalism were misused for partisan purposes negatively impacting perceptions of their independence."

    The application says the video, titled "Look at What We've Done," was published around Oct. 4 on a Conservative Party website (notasadvertised.ca), a Facebook page and a YouTube page.

    It says the video includes footage from The National, Power & Politics and a CBC Politics broadcast of a town hall attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It includes footage of Barton and Tasker, as well as "At Issue" panelist Andrew Coyne and commentator Rex Murphy.

    CBC/Radio-Canada holds the copyright on all those clips, the application says.

    It also says the clips were "taken out of context and are edited and relied on to make partisan points for the benefit" of the party.

    In response, the Conservatives used the lawsuit as a fundraising pitch, arguing in an email to supporters that CBC "footage should be usable by those who fund them."

    The party is asking for donations so that it can "hit back hard" against "this attack on free expression."

    As well, the Conservative Party says in a statement on its website that it plans to fight the CBC legal action.

    "The Conservative Party has grave concern that this decision was made on the eve of an election that CBC is to be covering fairly and objectively," the statement says. "The Conservative Party considers this a complete distraction in the final days of a tightly contested election, and we will dispute this lawsuit fully."

    The court document filed by CBC says several letters were sent to the Conservative Party to take down the ad in question on Oct. 7 and 8. It came down on Oct. 10.

    The application also says the Conservative Party has repeatedly made similar violations, both recently and in the run-up to the 2015 election.

    In their statement, McGuire and Julien said they received no assurance from the Conservative Party that it wouldn't happen again, so "it is therefore critical for us to provide clarity through the court to safeguard the integrity and professional independence of our journalism and our journalists."
