...and we're just gonna "shift" all over you.
-- OTTAWA -- Stéphane Dion's cross-country tour promoting his “green shift” hit a potentially embarrassing pothole Monday as a Toronto environmentalist took legal action over what she describes as “blatantly unethical” trademark infringement.Of course, when the shoe is on the other foot...
A firm already operating as Green Shift sent a cease and desist letter Monday afternoon to the Liberal Party and the company is considering whether to sue for damages.
Ms. Wright recalls being told by the senior Liberal aide: “I just want to let you know that you're going to be getting a lot of hits on the website.”
Ms. Wright said she warned Ms. Telford the Liberals could expect a lawsuit if they went ahead and used the name.
“I said, more importantly, why would you do that to a nice, friendly, environmental organization?”
FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Dion wants to shift the green from your wallet into the Liberal's wallet."**********

A Liberal spokesman discounted the company's protests that the Liberals mimicked Green Shift's web domain name, by adding the article "the" before Greenshift.ca.**********
"We rightly own the domain name," said Dunn.

CRAIG OLIVER: "However, they did offer us Jason Kenney, the Minister of Multiculturalism, to attack the government's green plan..."You mean the Fiberal tax grab, right Craig?
