Justin Trudeau and his Ontario campaign co-chair, David MacNaughton, are facing a $1.5 million libel suit from a would-be candidate who was barred from running for the Liberal party.

In a statement of claim filed in court today, lawyers for Christine Innes say the Liberal leader and MacNaughton slandered her by falsely claiming she’d been blocked because of bullying and intimidation tactics used by her campaign.

The statement of claim contains allegations not proven in court.
