The May 2015 issue of Toronto Life is getting lots of buzz on the radio and social media regarding a feature this month on Michael Elder. See press release below:

April 21, 2015 (TORONTO) – Yesterday in Ontario Superior Court, Michael J. Elder, chair of WorkOnce Wireless Corporation, failed in his attempt to receive an emergency injunction preventing the publication of the May issue of Toronto Life.

Mr. Elder is the subject of a feature profile in the May issue of the book, entitled “The Charming Mr. Elder,” written by veteran reporter Michael Posner. Mr. Elder has raised millions from prominent Toronto investors for the development of a device called the Quillmate and is now the subject of a group action from investors seeking $12 million in damages, as well as Mr. Elder’s removal from the company as sole director.

“I’m satisfied with the outcome of yesterday’s proceeding,” said Ken Hunt, Publisher of Toronto Life. “I’m pleased that the hard work of our editors, writers and designers will reach our readers as usual.”

Peter Jacobsen, a founding partner of Bersenas Jacobsen Chouest Thomson Blackburn and an experienced litigator in defamation and media law, represented Toronto Life in court.

The May issue of Toronto Life will be available to subscribers today and on newsstands Thursday, April 23.

The cover feature also looks like it will generate some heat as well!  Perfect timing given the hiring of our new Police Chieff, and all the outrageous stories of police brutality in the USA.
