Under a week after NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair was spoken to by an RCMP officer for failing to stop at a check point, a Conservative MP has been ticketed for talking on her phone and failing to stop. Eve Adams was fined $155.
Adams was talking on her cell phone as she drove and did not come to a full stop and her fine was for distracted driving. She admitted to the ticket on twitter but did not reveal that she had been talking on her cell phone while driving.
In his incident, Mulcair asked the officer "Do you know who I am?" The officer had followed Mulcair to get him to stop but Mulcair kept going to his parking spot. When the officer approached, Mulcair reportedly told him he was in trouble for following him. Mulcair's office later said their talk was cordial and pointed out that no ticket was issued.
In question period on Thursday of last week, Conservative MP's badgered Mulcair about his transgressions, and Adams took the opportunity to do the same. Her tweet concerning her ticket spent more time on Mulcair's incident than hers'.
"I recently received a traffic ticket outside the main precinct for not coming to a complete stop," Adams tweeted. "Unlike Mr. Thomas Mulcair, I immediately stopped. Unlike Mr. Mulcair, I did not intimidate the officer."
