Legal Actions against Global News and Sam Cooper
We are a group of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. We were shocked by Mr. Sam Cooper’s report on April 30th aired on Global News titled “United Front groups in Canada helped Beijing stockpile coronavirus safety supplies”. In the report, Chinese-Canadian humanitarian efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic were falsely portrayed as acts of espionage. In fact, on the same day, before Global News published Mr. Sam Cooper’s piece, there was another report named “Coronavirus outbreak: “How a secretive organization helped China hoard PPE.”
As Canadians of Chinese descent, we believe Mr. Cooper’s reporting in so far as relating to the portrayal of the Chinese-Canadian community is inaccurate, unbalanced, and was written to intentionally cause harm to the character of the Chinese-Canadian community. In fact, it has likely already caused harm to the Asian-Canadian community and the First Nation community in light of the recent increase of physical attacks to members of the community.
In order to right a wrong, we are exploring the feasibility of mounting a class action lawsuit against Mr. Sam Cooper and Global News for the inaccurate and unbalanced reporting that targets a specific minority group. Our aim is to demand an apology from Mr. Sam Cooper and Global News to the Canadian-Chinese community as well as compensation for damages.
