The Georgia Straight has heard John Furlong’s statement this afternoon regarding an article in today’s newspaper. The story was backed up with eight sworn affidavits. Marvin Storrow, Furlong's lawyer, did not make his client available to respond to questions from the journalist, Laura Robinson. She also attempted without success to reach Mr. Furlong through his publisher, Douglas & McIntyre. Ms. Robinson was told that Mr. Furlong had “nothing more” to say to her.
