Former Halifax firefighter Blair Cromwell, who was fired
from the job after he made comments about fire department management on The Coast website, was subsequently sued for libel
by fire chief Bill Mosher and deputy chief Steve Thurber. Today, Cromwell filed a defence to those charges, which basically argues that all of the postings on The Coast website are true.
Neither the libel charges nor the defence against them have been proven in a court of law.
The full defence is here.
