A Winnipeg activist plans to sue the People's Party of Canada and its candidates for defamation over social media posts made by party members, unless they apologize and retract their statements.

A Sept. 17 letter from Omar Kinnarath's lawyer, Benjamin Tinholt, says on July 23, the party's Winnipeg Twitter account tweeted a photo of the activist with "TERRORIST" beneath it, along with his full name, home address and phone number.

"This terrorist shut down our Rally to introduce our PPC Candidate by ruining online the little woman who was renting us our venue," the tweet read, according to the letter from the lawyer.
