Woman charged with impaired driving causing death in triple fatal crash

  1. How many more innocent people have to die at the hands of drunk drivers? When will the Canadian Judicial System start to convict and sentence drunk drivers who are responsible for the loss of life?
    There is no reason why a person who has been drinking should get behind the wheel of a vehicle. This woman took the lives of four people. She gets to live, drink and continue her merry way while the victims have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Drunk drivers are the scum of the earth.

    • Government only cares about tax greed and its bloated bureaucracy and Orwellian state. We trivialize loss of life, 16 months for DUI murder of two parents, orphaning 5 kids… made me sick to see such injustice, yet it happens time and again where drunks get off so light.

      Bet if the victims were relatives of MPs, MLAs, judges, they would get more time.

  2. Sad, she will get so little time for killing 4 people, ruining so many lives….and like others, get off so light. Our injustice system needs to be changed.

    RIP victims, condolence to survivors.
