CTV Moonbat Moment

Apparently, it's okay to perjure yourself as long as you're a hockey legend. Guy Lafleur walks away with a slap on the wrist and Lloyd and company seem to be pleased.

In February, his son received a 15-month conditional sentence for more than 20 charges, which included assault, dangerous driving and cannabis production.
But hang on, folks... that's not the whole story. One of the charges was actually sexual assault of a minor... and that's not all. CTV seems to have played down a couple of other small details.
Mark Lafleur was first arrested last January. He faces 22 charges that include uttering death threats and sexual assault of a 17-year-old.

Mark Lafleur is also accused of kidnapping, forcible confinement, mischief, theft, possession of crack cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, threatening to kill a Montreal bus driver, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and damaging a bus.
The best part had to be when CTV's reporter threw in a thread about Lafleuer Senior being treated too harshly.

It seems pretty obvious that Lafleur was aiding and abetting a dangerous criminal... who had himself been slapped on the wrist.
At a bail hearing that fall, Lafleur told the court that his son had not violated his curfew, nor consumed drugs or alcohol.

But a subsequent court hearing revealed that Lafleur had twice driven his son to a hotel so Mark Lafleur could spend time with his teenage girlfriend.
That'd be his 16 year-old girlfriend... 6 years his junior.

Apparently, in Quebec, much like socialist Ontario... there's no longer any such thing as a bad boy.

Unbelievable.

Arrest warrant issued for Guy Lafleur
Ex-Canadien 'devastated': lawyer. Hockey legend is accused of giving contradictory evidence in son's court case

Guy Lafleur plans to surrender to Montreal police tomorrow morning, after an arrest warrant was issued yesterday for the Hockey Hall of Famer.

Lafleur, 56, is to be arrested for giving contradictory evidence last fall in the court case of his son, Mark Lafleur, 23, who faces a range of charges, including sexual assault.

After the hockey legend is arrested at a police operations centre in St. Léonard at 10 a.m., he is expected to be released immediately on a promise to appear in court later, probably at the end of February, his lawyer, Jean-Pierre Rancourt, said last night.

Lafleur, a five-time Stanley Cup champion, is "devastated" by the arrest warrant, Rancourt said.

The former Canadiens right-winger is innocent of the charge, he added.

The maximum penalty for a conviction of contradictory testimony is 14 years in prison.

The type of warrant issued for Lafleur is unusual, Rancourt said, as it is generally for people considered dangerous or a flight risk.

"Why didn't they just issue a summons?

"He is a well-known public figure. He has been co-operating with the court."

Montreal police Constable Laurent Gingras confirmed the existence of the arrest warrant for Guy Lafleur. He would not explain why this type of warrant was issued, however.

The warrant states Lafleur testified in September that his son came back to the family's Île Bizard home every night in August while the younger Lafleur was under a court-ordered 12:30 a.m. curfew.

But in testimony he gave in October, Lafleur said his son actually spent two nights at a hotel.

Quebec Superior Court Justice Carol Cohen noted then that, with his father's authorization, Mark Lafleur spent nights with a 16-year-old girl in two hotels.

Lafleur brushed off his son's misbehaviour.

"He respected (the curfew) except for twice, when he asked if he could go to a hotel," Guy Lafleur said in court.

"I thought that at 22 he had a right to some intimacy."

The elder Lafleur testified he hadn't revealed the information at the earlier hearing because prosecutor Sylvie Lavergne had not asked about it.

"So why are you mentioning it today?" Lavergne asked.

"Because I know you have proof that he went there and I didn't want to hide it," the former hockey star said.

Mark Lafleur was first arrested last January. He faces 22 charges that include uttering death threats and sexual assault of a 17-year-old.

Mark Lafleur is also accused of kidnapping, forcible confinement, mischief, theft, possession of crack cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, threatening to kill a Montreal bus driver, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and damaging a bus.


The younger Lafleur's preliminary hearing is set for March.

In a separate case in Joliette, he faces charges of assault and uttering death threats against a man in February 2006.

Fits with the topic in general-and it makes me want to scream with rage.
