December 5, 2006

Details are being kept quiet about a settlement in a lawsuit involving the Memeger of Parliament for Okanagan Shuswap.

Greg Husband was suing Colin Mayes for libel dating back to last year when Husband wasrunning for mayor of Salmon Arm.

Husband claimed he was defamed by Mayes in a letter that was published in a Salmon Arm newspaper. Mayes tells KISS FM, he found out the suit had been finalized through a media report.

"It was actually news to me. I didn't realize it had been settled. I was told it was going to besigned off but I didn't know when."

Mayes says he doesn't know the terms of the agreement because it was handled by the BCMunicipal Insurance Corporation."He (an official with the Corporation) phoned me to tell me they had come to a resolve and he didn't tell me what the terms were. He just said its best that you don't comment on any of the accusations."

Husband is also not releasing details.

The owner of the Lakeshore News was also named in the suit. (Pete McIntyre)
