Exactly, I would complain to local news media about them saying how much was taken in stick up/robbery. They for most part now say undisclosed amount (I suspect I wasn't the only who complained).
I felt no sense giving want to be thieves an idea of what could be had.

Not at all, just playing devils advocate.
Chances are this 15 year friendship will be coming to an ugly end with lawsuits etc.

Also linked the Gofundme that includes her picture and the names of the 3 family members.
If they requested to remain anonymous then dont link to the GoFundme

Doesn't need to be complicated ... maybe something like this:



If you can't remember how to open it you are obviously too drunk to deserve your keys back ...

That's assuming people will surrender their keys. I wouldn't.

If a investigator put some effort into this one, I'm certain you would have sufficient evidence to lay the appropriate charge if what has been released is fact.

KEY is if they put effort into it, and of course people co-operated.

As a homeowner, you have potential liability for bodily injury or property damage arising out of the negligent serving or distribution of alcohol on your property.

http://www.ibc.ca/qc/home/risk-manageme ... -liability)

So does the injured person sue themselves as the homeowner? :130:
EDIT. Article says the couple planned to spend the night, which makes me think they were also guests and not the homeowners of the party location.

So does the injured woman also sue the homeowners who are potentially liable for the actions of the evening?

Referring to guests:

You may be responsible for your guests when you serve alcohol on your property


Since the hostess tried to intervene she would not be held liable. I'm assuming hostess because of what was stated in the update:

"female resident"

“My wife and I were planning on staying the night and (she) noticed one of her friends, who had been drinking, was saying he was going to leave,” the husband said. “She went out to prevent him from leaving because he was too drunk to drive.”

One would think if they were the residents of the house they wouldn't need to mention their plan of staying the night. Makes me think they were guests as well.
Story does indicate the injured person is a "west Kelowna woman", not a Summerland woman.

“Initial investigation revealed the female resident had attempted to stop the man from driving away intoxicated, and as a result, she was struck by his vehicle,”
So likely final investigation will reveal this may not have been the actual resident / homeowner, but also a guest.

I had the pleasure of meeting this woman and her husband at a party on the 27th, really nce, down to earth family with a young one at home. Heard this news and felt gutted. Terrible situation, I hope she heals up well but from experience those are some rough injuries. Wish them all the best.

The story is full of misinformation. There was also a mention of a newborn but I'm of the understanding the baby is 5 months old. Guess we will all have to wait for facts to come out.

Alcohol can make some people stupid. This is one of those cases. And yet others drink the same alcohol, night after night and not have any lack of judgement. It's a people problem, not an alcohol problem.

For sure. I'm a far better driver when ripped.
