The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear an appeal filed by outspoken political commentator Ezra Levant over a 2014 libel judgment against him.

Levant was found to have libelled Saskatchwan lawyer Khurrum Awan in nine posts to his online blog.

An Ontario trial judge awarded Awan $50,000 in general damages and $30,000 in aggravated damages and ordered the libellous posts taken down.
