Poor parking wasn’t the only vehicular sin committed by a Hamilton member of parliament. In the wake of reports published earlier this month by the Toronto Sun showing Hamilton Centre MP Matthew Green beating the pre-Christmas crunch at Lime Ridge Mall by parking his campaign van in a no-parking zone, court records show the rookie NDP backbencher has repeated convictions for driving while suspended — justice delivered in absentia as Green never showed up for any of his appearances. On Oct. 4 2012, Green’s driver’s licence was suspended for non-payment of fines when he was was pulled over by police in downtown Hamilton and handed a summons ordering him to appear in court Nov. 21.
