In Dalton McGuinty’s Ontario…

March 9th, 2010
If daltons-ontarioGrandpa takes Grandma shopping and gets going more than 50KM over the speed limit, they take away his car and he faces fines in the thousands.

If an ex-MP gets drunk and has coke on his person, then hops in his car and drives 93 in a 50 zone, it’s a $500 fine for careless driving.

One wonders whether the table is now set for Michael Bryant’s “walking his dog without a leash,” plea bargain.


Correction. I originally stated Jaffer was found guilty of dangerous driving. It was actually careless driving.

    $500 dollar fine! That’s enough to make a person puke. Shows we are really living in a Banana Republic.

    Jaffer didn’t plead to dangerous driving but careless driving, big difference. Dangerous driving would have resulted in a criminal code violation but careless driving is not. Hence, not only does Jaffer beat the possession and dui charge but he walks out without a criminal record. Although, his car insurance might cost a little more.

    What the fu– does this have to do with McGuinty? You are seriously reaching dude.

    This has to do with MP privilege, and nothing more. No one else in the province that wasn’t an MP would get off with this crap.

    Umm, you mean a friend of the liberal party would not get a ‘by’ on charges like this? But it is true that pols get special treatment, god only knows how many times the libs have waved their own through the gates. I still think this is bad optics for conservatives and frankly somebody needs to talk to these two and get them under control or else turf them from the party. I say both because I assume they still have influence over each other. I know Jaffer, is officially not an MP.
