Quebec businessman Tony Accurso sues CBC/Radio-Canada over Mafia-wake reports

Quebec construction mogul Antonio Accurso is suing the CBC and Radio-Canada, saying they incorrectly reported he attended the viewing for the eldest son of the reputed head of Montreal's Italian Mafia. Accurso says CBC and Radio-Canada reported Dec. 31 he was present at a funeral home where mourners were paying their last respects to Nick Rizzuto Jr. His statement of claim says journalists Kai Nagata and Yvan Cote repeatedly reported Accurso was present at the funeral home. Accurso says he was "thousands of kilometres" away.
