According to multiple sources, British Columbia’s (B.C.) former LNG advocate is seeking US$5 million in a defamation lawsuit from Premier John Horgan, Jobs Minister Bruce Ralston and a federal NDP MP over false allegations that he completed little work before he was recently fired after four years on the job.
