Rathgeber Plays Dress Up

He's the Tory MP for Edmonton St. Albert, and this picture is from his website. But dressing like that is illegal if you're not a real soldier, and Brent is and always has been a lawyer, according to his bio:

419. Every one who without lawful authority, the proof of which lies on him,

(a) wears a uniform of the Canadian Forces or any other naval, army or air force or a uniform that is so similar to the
uniform of any of those forces that it is likely to be mistaken therefor,

(b) wears a distinctive mark relating to wounds received or service performed in war, or a military medal, ribbon, badge, chevron or any decoration or order that is awarded for war services, or any imitation thereof, or any mark or device or thing that is likely to be mistaken for any such mark, medal, ribbon, badge, chevron, decoration or order,

(c) has in his possession a certificate of discharge, certificate of release, statement of service or identity card from the Canadian Forces or any other naval, army or air force that has not been issued to and does not belong to him, or

(d) has in his possession a commission or warrant or a certificate of discharge, certificate of release, statement of service or identity card, issued to an officer or a person in or who has been in the Canadian Forces or any other naval, army or air force, that contains any alteration that is not verified by the initials of the officer who issued it, or by the initials of an officer thereto lawfully authorized,

is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction

Right up there with Iggy riding a bicycle without a helmet. Is this really the best Kinsella could do? What a has been.

Gotta agree with ridofbrain - Tory legal and ethical breaches are so routine they're hardly noteworthy.

Someone please correct me if events have changed, but last I heard Kinsella and Iggy's team don't see eye to eye.

You really need to keep up on these things ridofbrain.
