Travesty

No justice has been done. This is a complete insult to law and order.

This degenerate of society was someone who willingly violated the law and put people in direct danger directly due to her actions and disregard for the law. As a result she took the life of an innocent person who was taking every precaution to be safe and uphold the law.

I feel sorry for her for her past and the things she had to endure as a child, however, she has been an adult for some time now and must realize what is right and wrong. My father was an alcoholic and I never use that as an excuse for my behaviour. I know what is right and what is wrong. Her behaviour is completely unacceptable for an adult in a 1st world nation. We must hold EVERY adult to the same legal standard when it comes to the choices they have made.

I don't know of any place in Canada that would let off an intoxicated driver that has murdered someone. Why has it happened here??? Pity????

What can we do to change this result and prevent it from happening again?

They should make her pole dance for a year in a raunchy biker bar.

An unspeakably tragic incident. There's no question about that. As I understand the court's decision, there was nothing particularly positive to be gained by incarcertating a mother of three children for a lengthy jail term.

Justice and vengence are very different issues.

Having read the report linked by the OP I'd say they did the right thing.

It began with Trophy Kids

Today's culture is that of entitlements and excuses.

Everything is wanted as an entitlement with no effort or sacrifice to obtain.

An excuse is made for unacceptable behaviors and is an accepted practice.

Sad state of out North American Culture that began on ball fields and classrooms with everyone getting a trophy just for participating and has evolved into excuses and entitlements..........

It's not about Justice and Vengeance, it about being and taking responsibility for ones actions

It's about being accountable.

It's about projecting the rest of the world that its not acceptable to get wiped up on booze and drugs and then go for a drive

It's about the rider not having the right to live because she had the right to drive high, without recourse
