A former member of Parliament and leader of a fringe federal political party is suing a prominent political commentator and strategist for defamation.
Maxime Bernier alleges Warren Kinsella repeatedly branded him as a racist on social media and blog posts before, during and after the federal election campaign last year.
In his statement of claim, Bernier says those descriptions damaged his reputation and subjected him to public scandal and embarrassment.
A lawyer representing Kinsella says neither he nor his client has yet seen the statement of claim.
