An attempt to strike Premier Ed Stelmach with a cream pie at a Calgary Stampede breakfast two years ago has led to a 30-day jail sentence for a Calgary woman.
In handing down the sentence Monday, the judge noted Lily Phan was unrepentant.
"She expresses no remorse, offers no apology," said Judge William Cummings.
Outside of court, Phan, 32, said that had she actually managed to get pie filling on Stelmach, the damage would have amounted to no more than "injured pride and a dry-cleaning bill."
"The judge is right. I'm not remorseful," Phan told reporters.
Phan was convicted of assaulting a police officer and assault with intent of resisting arrest.
Stelmach had been hosting the premier's Stampede breakfast on July 9, 2007, when Phan approached with a boxed, cream-filled pie in her bag.
She was able to grab a handful of filling and was making a "throwing motion" when sheriffs intervened. One officer took a pastry 'bullet' for the premier, ending up with dessert on his clothing.
