Svend Out

Admitting he 'pocketed' jewelry at a recent public sale, veteran NDP MP Svend Robinson has announced that he's taking a leave of absence from his political duties.

Struggling to choke back tears at a Vancouver news conference, Robinson told reporters that he has been suffering from "severe stress and emotional pain" since a near-fatal hiking accident in late 1997.

Politically I have less than no time for Svend. But this is a tragic way to be leaving politics and I am sorry to see anyone who has devoted twenty five years to public service go out on such a sad note.
