by

Former Edmonton MP Rahim Jaffer pleaded guilty to careless driving in an Ontario court on Tuesday and was fined $500 for the offence. Jaffer, who is married to federal Minister of State for the Status of Women Helena Guergis, was stopped for speeding in Palgrave, Ont. last September and charged with cocaine possession and drunk drinking. The speeding, drunk driving and drug charges were withdrawn. “I’m sure you can recognize a break when you see one,” Judge Doug Maund told Jaffer.
