“I previously published material here that attacked the personal reputation of Mr. Kinsella. Those allegations were false and I retract and apologize for them without reservation. I have no information at all that Mr. Kinsella is anything but a good father and my publication of facts to the contrary was mean-spirited and unacceptable.

His comments concerned Jack Layton. The matter has now been settled, with Sears making a substantial donation to a charity of my choice.

“On this web site, I have repeatedly published statements which suggest that Warren Kinsella is dishonest and disreputable.

Statement by Office of the Prime Minister to Warren Kinsella
TORONTO, June 30, 2005/CNW/ – “In an interview on CTV National News on April 18, 2005, in reference to claims made by Mr. Kinsella before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations – including, and in particular, the implication that a member of the Prime Minister’s Office had contacted Mr. Kinsella minutes before testifying – I made an intemperate remark that I regret and apologize for suggesting that Mr. Kinsella was a liar. Even in the heat of the moment basic civility dictates that such terms are inappropriate and unfair. I wish to withdraw the remark without qualification.” Scott Reid, Director of Communications, Office of the Prime Minister

“On January 18, 2012 I made allegations that Warren Kinsella was fired from Sandra Pupatello’s campaign for leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. The allegations were false. Mr. Kinsella was not fired from the campaign. I retract those allegations and I sincerely apologize to Mr. Kinsella.”

Unacceptable Comments: Someone going by the name of Levesque posted an utterly unacceptable and deeply hurtful comment regarding Warren Kinsella’s family. It has been removed, and I’m also posting this to make it clear that I am taking responsibility for the comment and for its removal:
APOLOGY AND RETRACTION
I wish to sincerely apologize to Mr. and Mrs. Warren Kinsella for comments I permitted on this web site. While partisan differences are acceptable, the words in question were completely false and defamatory. I retract those words and I unreservedly apologize for them.
8. Pierre Bourque, a.k.a. Bourque Newswatch
Yesterday, Bourque Newswatch headlined a link to an Ottawa Sun story suggesting a ‘scandal’ involving the Ontario Wheat Board and Warren Kinsella. Today, the Ottawa Sun has issued a correction to its story, stating that “In fact, Mr. Kinsella’s firm, Daisy Consulting Group, is lobbying the federal government on behalf of the Ontario-Quebec Grain Farmers Coalition, of which the marketing board is a member. Also, Mr. Kinsella himself does not lobby on behalf of the coalition at the federal level. The Sun regrets these errors.” Bourque Newswatch wishes to correct its headline suggesting a scandal at the Ontario Wheat Board relating to this issue and regrets and apologizes for this error. Jan Wong, Globe and Mail
In a recent column about Warren Kinsella, a reader might have drawn the conclusion that Mr. Kinsella used a near-tragedy concerning his child in order to sell books. The Globe and Mail accepts that this was not so.
