"I Don't Like Bush Either": Splitting-the-Sky trial ends favorably! Posted by Kevin Barrett 08 Jun 2010 The Calgary Herald reports: A Chase, B.C., man will not go to jail after being convicted on Monday of obstructing a peace officer while protesting former U.S. president [sic] George W. Bush's visit to Calgary last year. Provincial court Judge Manfred Delong handed a conditional discharge to John Pasquale Boncore, 58, and placed him on probation for a year. Boncore, who uses the name Splitting the Sky, must make a $1,000 donation to a charity of his choice and pay a $50 victim fine surcharge as conditions of his probation. Trial observer and Splitting-the-Sky supporter John Duddy reports: I spent the afternoon in court listening to the Splitting-the-Sky case. He won. No criminal record, he has to make a donation to his favourite charity. Ramsey Clark spoke on behalf of the defendant; the Crown did not object. Overheard the Crown lawyer in the elevator say "I don't like Bush either".
