Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault still owes Rebel News $20,000 as a court-ordered December 12 deadline looms. As the date draws near, Guilbeault's lawyer told Ezra Levant the cheque was simply lost in the mail.
“We just got an email from (Steven Guilbeault's) lawyer. He says Guilbeault's $20,000 cheque was lost in the mail,” the Rebel News boss wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
“We told him to send it again by courier but he's refusing to comply. The court-ordered deadline is Dec. 12. PAY YOUR DEBT YOU CREEPY LITTLE WEIRDO,” he added.
The debt stems from a then-Twitter lawsuit filed by Ezra Levant and Rebel News against Guilbeault for blocking him on the social media platform.
Earlier this year, Justice Russel Zinn found the minister's account was providing a public service, ordering Guilbeault to unblock Levant until his account was for personal use as a private citizen, reported True North.
