"Voting for convicted criminals may be hazardous to your health," reads hundreds of posters on display in two ridings on Vancouver's Westside. Featured on the posters is British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell's mugshot. Some of the posters also have the words "Convicted Criminal
" stamped across Gordon's forehead.
The mugshot originated two years ago when Campbell was arrested in Maui for drinking and driving
. As a result of the incident, Campell was ordered to pay pay fines and fees totaling $913 US ($1,350 Cdn), complete a 14-hour alcohol assessment program, and have a substance abuse assessment. He also became the subject of public criticism and faced calls for his resignation.
Looking at the posters, one can only wonder if things would have been different had there been posters that read "Voting for the Liberals is Hazardous to the Health of the Nation" with a picture of Jean Chrétien
with the words "Will Reward Payoffs, Kickbacks, and Secret Donations with Hefty Federal Contracts" stamped across his forehead during the 1993, 1997, and 2000 federal elections.For Fun:
