Disgraced Tory Candidate Fined $5000 And Loses His Car For Booze Smuggling

Derek Zeisman, who was the candidate in the riding of British Columbia Southern Interior, pleaded guilty to the smuggling charge Monday in Surrey provincial court.

He was fined $5,000 and forfeits his car.


Umm, he was the nominated candidate until he got in trouble. Then he was the formerly nominated candidate.

He didn't run.


You're correct - the article points out that Harper would not let him run and as a result there was no tory candidate - the NDP took the seat.

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you! How could Mr. Harper possibly look down his nose on such an enterprising entrepreneur?


YEAH ... what kind of socialist nonsense is going on here when a self respecting Conservative candidate cannot make a few bucks of profit from a business venture!!!


Maybe you should ask Mr. Dion and Mr. Curran. (The What Do I Know Grit).

I'm sure you've heard about that by now.


Thanks Lance ... I went and found the story and just noted that on Progressive Bloggers, one of my dipper colleagues is blogging the story right now.

I will post there!
