Burnaby Dentist Sues Over ‘Defamatory’ Google Review


A lawsuit over a scathing Google review aimed at a Burnaby dentist will go ahead after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled the online post was “capable of defamatory meaning.”

Dr. Edward Chin, director of Smiley Kids Dental at 4233 Hastings St., launched a lawsuit in February 2021 against two people he alleges were behind a negative online review posted on Oct. 20, 2020.
