    Being arrested and charged doesn't prohibit one from running for office. Being convicted of a felony would mean he automatically loses his seat, but being charged has no impact on his legal right to run or serve.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world - Jack Layton
