of his penchant for telling the most brazen of lies when he published
this gem:

Crusader wins round in fight against a family's $700-million tax break

By CP
WINNIPEG --  A Winnipeg man is delighted a court ruling has cleared
the way for his lawsuit aimed at forcing a prominent Canadian family
to pay $700 million in income tax.

"I hope the government won't appeal this," George Harris said
yesterday. "When people, who spent many years paying taxes because
they felt it was their civic duty, see people much better able to pay
taxes are not, it bothers them, to put it mildly."

Justice Francis Muldoon of the Federal Court ruled that Revenue
Canada's decision to allow two family trusts to transfer $2 billion in
assets to the U.S. without paying taxes "smells" of "grave
maladministration" and favouritism.

The family has not been identified under confidentiality rules, but
published reports say it's the Bronfmans, who control the
Montreal-based Seagram Co. distilling and entertainment empire.

Harris's suit is aimed at forcing Ottawa to collect capital-gains
taxes on the transferred assets.

Muldoon's ruling comes a week after Finance Minister Paul Martin
released proposals to ensure an end to similar transfer deals.

Last year the courts agreed with government lawyers who argued that
Harris's suit, started in 1996, should not proceed because he was not
directly affected by the 1991 Revenue Canada decision allowing the
transfer. But Muldoon ruled that Harris has a legitimate suit "on
behalf of all fellow taxpayers, except the favoured few."

Lawyer Arne Peltz agrees his client has a public interest.

"He's just a guy who goes to work every day, pays his taxes and thinks
everyone should pay their fair share."

Muldoon gave Ottawa 35 days to respond to Harris's allegations.
