Sunshine Village Sues Former EmployeesBy Steve Casimiro on November 27th, 2012
You just knew the whole nasty business about firing a ski patroller who ratted out the owner’s boy for allegedly skiing out of bounds wouldn’t go away quietly. Now Banff’s Sunshine is suing two of the four terminated employees it says are behind a flyer, t-shirt sales, and online boycott that caused “significantly lower” sales of day and season passes. Sunshine alleges former mountain manager Chris Chevalier and ex-patroller Christopher Conway organized a campaign that falsely represented why they were fired because of the incident two years ago. The action alleges that more than 8,000 Facebook visitors, including ski professionals and writers, “liked” a support page for the dismissed workers. In its defamation action, Sunshine is seeking $300,000 and other damages. Via Edmonton Journal.
