Why Tories Shouldn't Hurry

From CBC News:

NEW GLASGOW, N.S. - Deputy Conservative leader Peter MacKay has been suspended from driving for two weeks after being caught speeding twice last year.

The Nova Scotia MP will begin his 14-day sentence May 21 and will not be able to drive in any jurisdiction.

MacKay was clocked going 134 km/h in a 100/km/h zone in Broadway N.S., on Nov. 11. He told the officer he was late for a function.

He was pulled over by the same officer on Dec. 23 in Caribou River, N.S., for going 109 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.

MacKay was fined a total of $430 for both offences. His lawyer, Craig Clarke, said MacKay will be in Australia at the time of his suspension.

Dang. I was hoping to find out how he feels about OC Transpo.
