How did a Blackberry get into the Parliamentary gallery?

How did a BlackBerry get into the Parliamentary gallery?

If you have ever had the pleasure of viewing Parliament live, or even the legislature of your own province, you may have noticed a couple of things during that experience. They all have security, and they take away any electronics you are carrying. Be it a cellphone, Blackberry, camera, tape recorder etc, they all get taken away.

From Jane Taber at the Globe and Mail: "Mr. Kinsella was in the gallery, watching the proceedings. He quickly typed a letter on his BlackBerry to Mr. Baird, calling his answer “lame

From WK's blog to save you the trouble: "Dear John:

I am sitting above you in the House of Commons gallery as I write this.......

So how did this particular BlackBerry, owned by this particular "Liberal Strategist", make it into the Parliamentary gallery?

Perhaps certain "orfices" are not thoroughly checked?

he's entitled to his entitlements like he said.

These responses are the BEST, ANYWHERE today! Too funny, guys!

Why is it there, AA? Why is he permitted to communicate with an MP while in the gallery. That just slams of ignorant entitlement. Do these things get reported as a disruption and the individual penalized?

Nothing seems to be about classiness anymore but about how petulant and childish certain addicts of instant messaging have become.

I deleted the first comment posted here by anonymous as it made claims that may not be factual.

That and I don't need to be sued.

Perhaps Catsmeat should be barred from the gallery on a permanent basis for this transgression?
