The divorce between former federal cabinet minister Steven Fletcher and his old party has taken another turn, with the People's Party candidate saying he will sue the Conservative Electoral District Association of Charleswood-St. James-Assiniboia-Headingley.

The former Conservative MP is alleging defamation after a letter from the district association accusing him of appropriating property ended up being posted to Twitter.

The electoral district association sent Fletcher the legal notice on Sept. 14 through its attorney, George Orle, alleging that when Fletcher left the Conservative Party, he took electronic voter data and campaign material that was not his property.
