In one of those “are you kidding me” columns, Ethan Baron of the Province dragged one of the Conservative nomination candidates for Okanagan-Coquihalla through the mud.
Baron should have deleted this dirt-seeking story immediately after learning the facts but of course that would have been the ethical thing to do:
In a domestic case in 2009, Rusty Ensign was charged but never tried nor convicted with causing his then wife to fear for her personal safety:
“I didn’t do it, what was alleged — assault,” Ensign said. His quadriplegia makes him incapable of assault, and he didn’t deserve the charge laid against him, he said.
“I took a peace bond. I didn’t want to contest it,” Ensign said. “I’m human. I live in a relationship. I’ve got a 10-year old daughter and I think I’d better resolve my relationship issues than walk away.”
I don’t know Ensign from Adam but he looks to me like a someone with a tonne more credibility and honesty than the guy who wrote the article. (see here)
