Ben Levin's Wikipedia Entry Is Oddly Spotless. Why?

Ben Levin, the bloke who once served as Deputy Minister to then-Ontario Minister of Education Kathleen Wynne (and whose name, for obvious reasons, you will never hear now-Premier Wynne mentioning on the campaign hustings), is still facing some embarrassing charges related to an alleged fondness for kiddie porn. And even though none of this is new—or even news—Wikipedia, which prides itself on up-to-date entries, is apparently refusing to allow anything about the arrest or the charges onto its Ben Levin page.

What gives? Surely referencing news reports about an actual arrest on actual charges can't possibly be considered potentially "libelous".
