An article from

Rahim Jaffer

The name used to stand for fighting substance abuse and a good young MP.

No longer though

Now I, unlike so many others, actually read the article in depth to surmise what happened in this case. The problem is that too many readers read the headline and not the substance of the article. The comments section was rife with people who did just that.

If the cocaine possession is true, then it is absolutely true that Mr. Jaffer caught a break. The question is, what did the officer do to him in order to give him that break? What happened that the prosecutor, after meeting with the defendant and his lawyer, decided not to pursue the charges?

If the full story is released, then we will know what happened, but we can certainly be sure of one thing - the federal Conservatives weren't involved in this decision.
