SYDNEY, N.S. A former Cape Breton car dealer has been sentenced to 26 months in prison after pleading guilty to a single count of fraud amounting to close to $2 million.

John Norman Wilson, 61, of Sydney, N.S., had been facing 23 counts of theft while his former company, Wilson Chrysler Plymouth, was charged with 84 counts of fraud.

The dealership folded in 2001 and the companys licence to conduct business in Nova Scotia was revoked in 2002 for non-payment of registration fees.

    What?!! A dishonest car dealer?!! Say it ain't so. Shoot, I'll believe that when pigs oink.
    Come to think of it, the last dealer we went to not only asked for my phone number and address, he also wanted my girlfriend Betsy-Lou's measurements and lists of fetishes. Is that wrong?
