    My fantasy would be to have him as my next PM. But I'll probably have to settle for Trudeau.

    Recognizing the party leaders is a reflection on how well the guard does his job.

    This is embarassing for the Party leader but worse for the guard involved (who will likely not be back on Parliament Hill. It is not good for an officer's career prospects to not know the respective party leaders on sight when he was assigned to the Hill. "embarassing the higher ups" is an unforgiveable crime in a heirarchical organization.

    I can attest that he is indeed a classy guy who is a compelling speaker, intellectual and tough as nails.

    He is also honest and fiercely incorruptible (unlike Harper and his cronies who:

    lost 3.1 billion dollars;
    who are gutting the cbc;
    who paid off a conservative's senator's ill gotten gains that he was required to pay back:


    Pamela Wallin (Condservative)
    Mike Duffy (Conservative - does not even live in the province he is appointed to represent)
    Patrick Brazeau (Conservative)
    Mac Harb (Liberal)

    These are scandals where each individual owes over $200,000 each personally and has been given 30 days to pay back the money they wrongfully took ()STOLE). And you compare this? wow, just wow.

    No reasonable person would see any equvalence between stealing hundreds of thousands of public money for personal use and having a security guard (whose JOB it is to know you) chase you down. one time out of a hundred that you have passed by the exact same way.

    Figures that you would excuse the fact the arrogance of the man who just tore through security and blamed others for it. Ironic that it's coming from the NDP that supposedly fights for the little guy. But that's pretty par for the course I suppose.

    Pathetic. But then again, it's incidences like this that show that those like Mulcair are not fit to lead demonstrating the character of those like him and you who defend his bewildering actions.

    Shouldn't they have some sort of physical control-of-entry barrier at the checkpoint? A stop hand signal can look very much like a wave, especially if a wave is what you're used to getting. If the officer didn't give any stop signal, then I'd say it's his/her fault the guy didn't stop. Running the stop signs afterwards is naughty, but hardly the crime of the century, especially on a private road.

    As for what was said subsequently, isn't that in dispute?
