Former Nova Scotia cabinet minister Ernie Fage was convicted and fined for leaving the scene of a minor traffic accident. Judge Bill Digby says he was satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Fage left the scene of the accident to escape criminal liability. Fage was asked what he thought of the verdict. (Fage was involved in the fender bender in downtown Halifax just after midnight on November 24th of 2006. During trial, Fage maintained he fled the scene out of fear for his safety.)
