Eye Opener defames Municipal Affairs Minister - apology delayed in lawyer's office

The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
Shakespeare's Dick the Butcher in King Henry VI

Last weeks article The Aftergood Scandal triggers an Alberta revolution made the following unprovoked statement:

Justice Minister Stevens and Municipal Affairs Minister Rob Renner of Medicine Hat are both highly skilled, honest trial lawyers.
We libeled Renner. He is a florist not a lawyer.

Jonathan Swift said of lawyers that they are:

... men (the Eye Opener finds she lawyers every bit as bad) bred up from their youth in the art of proving, by words multiplied for the purpose, that white is black and black is white, according as they are paid.
Down through the ages, humankind has said many nasty things about lawyers (by way of examples click here).

We have clearly libeled and defamed Mr. Renner. We have instructed our lawyer to come up with a suitable apology. When she graduated in 1905, her law school awarded her the gold medal in Procrastination 301. We are still waiting. Perhaps one of our lawyer readers can help us by clicking here and then sending us an appropriate apology.

Meantime, in lieu of a legal apology, flowers are clearly inappropriate. So, Mr. Renner:

We're sorry, we're sorry, we're sorry.
