And the verdict is . . .

One more day before fate of Ottawa’s mayor revealed


 

Ottawa mayor Larry O’Brien will learn his fate tomorrow morning when Justice Douglas Cunningham delivers his verdict in what has been billed as the capital’s trial of the century—at least so far. The Ottawa Citizen provides a summary of the charges that the former tech mogul turned unlikely municipal politician is facing, including extensive analysis from local lawyer Michael Rankin, who says he’s “expecting an acquittal.” If he’s right, O’Brien will return to City Hall to finish out his term, but if he’s not, and O’Brien is convicted of either of the offences with which he’s accused, not only will he be obliged to step down immediately, but he could also be facing jail time.

  1. I SURE HOPE THIS JUDGE IN OTTAWA DOES THE RIGHT THING AND LET'S JUSTICE PREVAIL, UNLIKE THE OUTHER JUDGE IN THE POLICE OFFICER CASE WHOM WAS CHARGED WITH THREATING, WEAPON'S, ESCAPE CUSTODY…SUSPENDED SENTENCE, 2 YEAR'S PROBATION ? YES I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS…HE ASSULTED HIS FELLOW OFFICERS 4 OF THEM…! AND GOT PAID FOR DOING SO, HOW CRAZY IS THIS ? IF THIS WAS THE AVERAGE CITIZEN A JUDGE WOULD OF TROWN AWAY THE KEY FOR AT LEAST 3-4 YEAR'S OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM IS VERY POOR AND IS NOT GETTING MUCH BETTER OTTAWA NEED'S TO SET BETTER EXAMPLE…!
