    VANCOUVER -- The wife of a former Aryan Nations
leader has lost a defamation lawsuit against the CBC
over a TV news report aired almost six years ago.

    In the 1998 suit, Janice Miller claims the story
gave the impression she was responsible for the
political beliefs of her husband, Terry Long.

    Miller sued for damages, claiming the CBC falsely
and maliciously defamed her.

    But a Supreme Court Judge has ruled the sting of
libel was justified because of evidence which came
from Miller's own mouth.

    In her testimony, Miller admitted to attending
cross-burning gatherings with her husband and children
where people were wearing Ku Klux Klan robes.

    Terry Long is the former leader of the Aryan
Nations Canadian chapter.

    Long and his family moved from Alberta after a
Neo-Nazi cross-burning incident in the province in
1990.

    Justice Satanowe dismissed Miller's claim.
