    Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedez Benz

    Stardate 5153.3

    "Sauce for the goose Mr. Saavik." This is something Spock said to Saavik in Star Trek II...

    My latest post on the CBC Roundtable happens to be about the BC Conservative candidate Derek Zeisman, who failed to inform his party about the fact he was charged in 2004 with smuggling a Mercedes-Benz and 112 containers of booze across the US-Canada border, and then lying to customs about it and is now headed to trial next month. He is of course, innocent until proven guilty.

    I find it very interesting however, that the Conservatives are backing him up 110% on this, and yet, even though the RCMP have specifically stated they are NOT investigating Goodale in the Income Trust affair, they demanded he step down! Maybe we will get a chance to see the new Conservative crackdown on Criminal Justice in action... Oh wait. Derek isn't 14 and he didn't have guns.

    It would also seem as though border security is doing a pretty bang up job, something the Conservatives say needs a thorough working over.

    Stand up for Canada! Yeah...

    As if hearing the tolling bells, Stephen Harper has now said that they will be dumping Derek Zeisman. He cannot be replaced as a candidate, but he will not be sitting on caucus.
    "Mr. Zeisman will not be sitting as a Conservative should he be elected," Harper said. "He'll have to get this matter resolved."

    The NDP candidate, Alex Atamanenko was surprised nobody knew anything about this until now.
