Now, that was a weird way to promote a mayoral campaign.
Kennedy Stewart pleaded guilty Monday to criminal contempt and was fined $500 for violating a court injunction at the Kinder Morgan protest site.
He’s the federal NDP MP from Burnaby South who plans to run for mayor of Vancouver in the fall.
Kennedy is one of several federal New Democrats who won’t promise to honour even a Supreme Court ruling on the pipeline.
It’s hardly shocking, I suppose, that a politician who flouts an order from one court won’t promise to respect the ruling of another — even the highest court in the land.
