It's the Greybar Hotel for Deano Del
Dean del Mastro won't have to worry about buying groceries for the next month. He's been given a month-long, all expenses paid visit, probably to some minimum-security guest ranch followed by four months house arrest. That's Harper's former spokesman and ex-MP's reward for fiddling with his election expenses in the last runoff.
DdM has also been given 18-months probation.
It's hard to say what Deano will do once he's paid for his crimes. In the Tory camp there's not a lot open to jailbirds except a tour in the PMO. Then again, consorting with slumlords, low rent drifters and shady characters like Steve Harper might be a breach of his parole.
Apparently DdM will only be spending one week in the slammer. That's about how long he'll need just to get his lard ass in and out of a hammock.
