- Jewish Billionaire Garth Drabinsky was sentenced to seven years. Some of the stories produced by the prosecutors of how he and his partner stiffed any and all creditors were hilarious, in a sick way (with the mass of evidence, how long will the slur be enough to prevent people realizing there is a Jewish propensity to this kind of behavior?). Drabinsky made exactly the same mistake as Conrad Black: you can spend a lifetime screwing over Canadians and if you are rich enough the Canadian courts and legal system will look the other way. Screw some big American financiers and its off to the hoosegow with you. Note how they are already playing the 'gimp card' - we'll certainly soon be finding out how many relatives he lost in the 1940s - and I doubt he'll actually spend a minute in jail.

He had to set aside the testimony of two separate people, each with no motive to lie and with no connections between them, plus ignore a mass of supporting circumstantial evidence. He must be so proud to go down in history as the judge who ruined democracy in Canada.
