It was his mental issues that caused it in the first place, which he has no control over. I assume he still has mental issues. He will likely steal again under stress due to his bipolar affliction. Or do something worse now that he is getting older. Politics is very stressful.

He was in the market for a diamond at the time he stole it.

No, because I need my car. Silly analogy. So anyone (including a child) who took something that didn't belong to them but returned it and made amends will always be known as a thief? Don't think so. People are given second chances.

2 things come to mind for me.

1. Once a Thief always a Thief

2. He who is without sin to cast the first stone.

Only thing that comes to mind for me.
Once a left wing lunatic eco terrorist thief always a left wing lunatic eco terrorist thief.

From his own book:
(eco terrorist)
Robinson was sentenced to a 14-day jail term at Ford Mountain Correctional Centre in Chilliwack.

(thief)
Robinson, who (pled guilty) and was sentenced to probation and 100 hours of community service,
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

If the guy is so mentally unstable he should be looking for a different career.

Have to go to any school that has had a child take something that doesn't belong to them. Doesn't matter age, doesn't matter gender, just matters people make mistakes.

Just to show he is not a "one issue" guy as mentioned previously. He does speak up unlike many of the politicians who just sit and wait for their fat pensions to kick in.

One of his earliest political activities was leading a group of NDP MPs who heckled former US President Ronald Reagan while he was speaking at the House of Commons in support of the Strategic Defense Initiative and aid to the Contras. He was a long-time activist in the anti-apartheid movement and was a member of the official Canadian delegation to the 1994 South African election. Robinson has also been critical of the Chinese government for its treatment of political dissidents and for its policies in Tibet. He was a founder of the Canadian wing of Parliamentarians for East Timor. He was active in international parliamentary groups, including serving as rapporteur and chair of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's Parliamentary Assembly Human Rights and Development Committee.[2]

Robinson was a leader in the movement for the right to physician-assisted death, fighting for the right of well-known ALS patient Sue Rodriguez to choose when to end her life with the assistance of a physician. He was ultimately present at her bedside at the time of her physician-assisted death.[4]

The riding he is contemplating in running is currently Liberal. The new boundaries have taken in part of North Van and I don't know just how many NDPers live that side of the inlet. Might be for naught anyway if he gets the NDP nod.

If he can get a part time job at a jewelry store in the Lower Mainland, then maybe he can be considered for a vote or two [icon_lol2.gif]

Question though,
If he's steals a ring during times of stress, how does he react during times of real crisis for constituents. Troubles come up, natural disasters, violence, tragic accidents involving multiple deaths, etc. just use your imagination.
I say he's been tested and failed

I imagine he has his medical condition under control.

1994: A judge sentences the MP to 14 days in jail after he is found in criminal contempt for defying a court order prohibiting the obstruction of logging at Clayoquot Sound.
Was there violence there?

With his experience there are many ways he could influence politics or certain causes without actually having the job of MP.
I just don't get how anyone can essentially ask for their job back like this as though he's somehow entitled to the job.
Is there no one else without the baggage? Is the pool that shallow??
People will judge i guess.

I believe there are many people out there who would make excellent politicians. Of course they are also smart enough to know that politics is one slime pit, they are not willing to touch.

So we are left with the bottom of the barrel choices in politicians.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.
