Ex-Tory MP Jaffer charged with cocaine possession

17/09/2009 11:07:52 AM

CTV.ca News Staff
Former Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer, who ran anti-drugs ads against the NDP in the last federal election, is facing charges for drunk driving and cocaine possession.


Jaffer, who is married to Conservative cabinet minister Helena Guergis, was arrested early Friday morning by Ontario Provincial police in Palgrave, northwest of Toronto.

OPP say the officer stopped a speeding SUV at about 12:45, and reported the driver smelled of alcohol.

Jaffer faces charges of driving while over the legal blood-alcohol limit, and with possession of cocaine.

His licence has been suspended for 90 days and he is to appear in court Oct. 19.

Jaffer, 37, was MP for Edmonton-Strathcona from 1997 to his surprising defeat in 2008. He was the only Tory to lose in Alberta in the most recent federal election and has been said to have taken his defeat hard.

Days before the election, Jaffer launched attack ads criticizing NDP Leader Jack Layton as soft on drugs.

Part of the radio ads said: "Edmontonians understand how difficult it is to make sure our children make the right choices, especially on serious issues like drug use. The Conservative Party supports drug-free schools and getting tough with drug dealers who sell illegal drugs to children. Don't let our schools go up in smoke. On October 14th vote Conservative."

Jaffer was first elected to the House of Commons at the tender age of 25.

In 2001, he made an emotional apology in Parliament after it was discovered one of his staff impersonated him on a radio show while the MP was busy.

He was born in Kampala, Uganda, and immigrated to Edmonton as a boy.

Jaffer was arrested near his wife's riding of Simcoe-Grey. They were married Oct. 15 last year, one day before the federal election.

its awesome isn't it?

Convervatives, Republicans are the best when it comes to being hipocrits.. They always want to take the hard line in politics, then when you catch them with their pants down they cry and usualy get the easy way out because of their connections.

Meanwhile if a liberal or a democrat talks about how, well, drugs aren't that bad, we should focus more on the problem of the addicts cleaning themselves, the libs. are viewed as un-patriotic and socialist/communist, and everything else under the sun.

Its good though, the more of these thigns that happen, hopefully more and more people will rise up - specially our generation - in protest over the hipocrissy. Get tough on drugs, get tough on DUI's and then low and behold, Mr Above the law is drinking and driving. ****ing fantastic.

Meanwhile, if you blow a .06 they take your car away for the night, you get a warning because YOURE CLOSE TO THE legal LIMIT but not quite there yet. Oh watch the argument be, well he only blew a 0.09 .01 over the legal limit, so will let this slide because he was having a bad break since he didn't win his las election... amirght?

****enfantastic isn'tit?

Having lived in the States, I have to say the Republicans are much worse than this. Jaffer was a relative nobody on the political scene, whereas in the U.S you have guys like Sanford and Ensign who were considered potential "Presidential" candidates in 2012 and actually tried to apply their "morality" via legislation and rhetoric.

Either way, I love when hypocrites get caught out.

Thankfully he wasn't elected, and hopefully he goes to jail for life.

Please...This is hardly a conservative only domain. In recent memory I can think of more than a couple of liberals or ndp members doing plenty bad.

Liberal attorney general, the "father" of the unconstitutional street racing law, road raging and running over a cyclist and into a bus stop.

NDP MP Svend Robinson in BC stealing something like a $10,000 diamond ring from a jewelry store.

Manitoba Liberal candidate lost his license for DUI during the last election

And lets not even start on all the liberal spending scandals in the news recently

At least the guy in this story wasn't an elected official.
