Even a "mass murderer", as one Vancouver lawyer has described him, can sell out a dinner.
That's right. Vancouver's Bon Mot Book Club says its Dick Cheney speaking event is full.
However, an email sent out today (September 19) by club organizer Leah Costello noted eight tickets had been "released" and were available for the taking. The price of admission? $500.
Cheney is coming to the Vancouver Club (915 West Hastings Street) next Monday (September 26) to promote his book In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir. The event gets underway at 6 p.m.
Gail Davidson, cofounder of the group Lawyers Against the War, has called on the Canadian government to either keep the former U.S. vice president out of the country or to arrest and prosecute him for crimes against humanity.
