In what appears to be Liberal Senator Romeo Dallaire driving when he was in no condition to do so:
“He was very tired, he had a hard week last week,” Sylvie Biard, an assistant at Dallaire’s office, told QMI Agency. “He was travelling a lot. Yesterday he had a 16-hour workday.”
Also comes a report that the RCMP removed his Senate parking pass after he got in an accident:
Sen. Romeo Dallaire crashed his BMW 328 into a stop sign on Parliament Hill Tuesday morning, knocking it over and causing some damage to his car.
The BMW 328 was sitting on the sidewalk outside of East Block around 10 a.m. Tuesday. RCMP officers on the scene offered little comment but did remove the Senate parking pass that could have identified which senator was behind the wheel. (see here)
When did it become RCMP policy to cover-up the identity of a politician involved in a driving incident?
Update: Dallaire admits to falling asleep while driving:
He says he simply did not monitor his fatigue level and feel asleep at the wheel. (see here)
Also notice that the CP reporter doesn’t mention the RCMP covering-up for Dallaire and takes an anonymous source’s word that he wasn’t drinking.
