Newspaper falsely suggestive

I was arrested the same night for drug possession as my dealer was for multiple drug offences including possession for the purpose of trafficking. In the newspaper the article was written in such a way that suggested I was involved with the investigation and trafficking. Is this against my Charter rights?

Your concern appears to be more with defamation and libel.  Have you contacted the newspaper and requested they print a clarification or retraction?  Should you wish some assistance with this, please contact my office at and one of my colleagues can assist you with this matter.
