Ed Byrne Finally Receives a Sentence
17 Apr, 2009
After years of digging through receipts and paperwork and endless hearings and press Ed Byrne has finally been found guilty and given a sentence.
For stealing more than $117,000 from the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and misrepresenting his colleagues and in fact all Newfoundland politicians, Byrne has been handed a jail sentence of two years less one day.
Can you believe that? The maximum sentence the judge would give him was two years. I feel like commiting a crime in Canada is no big deal.
