Saskatchewan Party MLA Bill Boyd has filed a lawsuit against the CBC and one of its reporters.
 
It is in regard to the recent stories about a $21 million land deal by the Global Transportation Hub of which Boyd was chair.
 
The provincial auditor is now investigating the land sale and any other transactions related to it.
 
The lawsuit argues the stories are misleading and allege the MLA acted unlawfully.
 
"The Defendants' allegations in the Stories were untrue, misleading and incorrect, and were intended to convey, and did convey by the plain meaning of the words and by innuendo, that Boyd had committed or was involved in unlawful conduct."
 
Aaron Fox is the lawyer representing Boyd in this matter.
 
The CBC has not yet filed any defence.
