Liberal MP Scott Brison has officially apologized for the malicious and false statements he made about the National Citizens Coalition.
See below a letter he emailed me late Friday after I demanded an apology and retraction:
Dear Mr. Nicholls:
Thank you for your letter dated today concerning my statement regardingthe NCC.
I wish to acknowledge that my statement was factually incorrect in two ways:
* I was in error to say that the NCC was charged six times with violations of the Elections Act.
* It was premature to say that there was a contravention ofthe Lobbyist Registration Act. In order to resolve and clarify thenature of these activities, I have asked the Registrar of Lobbyists toinvestigate. I was provided with incorrect information, but I accept responsibilityfor my statements. I regret my errors, and I withdraw those statements categorically.
Please accept my apology.
Sincerely, Scott Brison
