Dar Heatherington Wants Taxpayers to Pay for Her Appeal

As reported in today's National Post, Dar Heatherington, the former Lethbridge alderwoman convicted of public mischief for lying about a stalker is requesting taxpayers fund her appeal. The appeal is scheduled for September.

Why? Apparently Dar is broke. Legal aid turned down an earlier request for funding, but a hearing on the funding request will take place on June 23. To date no price tag has been provided for what it could potentially cost taxpayers.

What do you think? Should taxpayers pay for Dar Heatherington's Appeal? Post your comments here:

How about the CTF taking up a collection to help her?
