VANCOUVER —      Two men convicted of perjury in the death of Robert Dziekanski  will have their appeals heard in the Supreme Court of Canada this morning.

    RCMP Const. Kwesi Millington and former corporal Benjamin ``Monty'' Robinson were both sentenced to jail terms for testimony they gave at the inquiry examining Dziekanski's death at Vancouver's airport in 2007.

    He had spent hours lost in the airport when he was jolted multiple times by a police Taser as officers responded to reports of a distraught man.

    Millington, who fired the Taser, and Robinson, who was the senior officer, were found guilty of colluding to make up testimony presented at the inquiry -- and the B-C Court of Appeal upheld those convictions.
