Because he's a murderer, not with a gun... with a transport truck.

Vehicular homicide maximum sentence is 14 years × number of victims = he should die in prison.
Unfortunately not in our current justice system of pampering of criminals.

That is the $1,000 bail he needed to stay out of prison for the last 6 months ( minus 3 days )
Divided by the 16 people he killed.

What a joke.


You clearly don’t understand what bail means.

What sort of idiot do you think we are here,
Its a jet out of jail and enjoy the holidays with your family while everyone else involved with the accident is in morning fund.

Why not try driving for a living and see how you feel in 10 years.
You will probably start to say the bail was a joke and calling him a murderer too.

Some of the comments in here are hilarious.

1. he will not get 14 years
2. It was 1 incident not 16
3. It was not murder
4. It was an accident
5. We don't know the full details of the accident.

Its a good thing we don't let personal emotions take place over law and logic.

Then that would make Transport Canada the true "murderer". He had the required training, he was legal.

So, you get to decide how the law should or should not work? FYI, laws are there for a reason.

Alright Mr. Matlock. Where is the evidence that his act was intentional to deliberately cause death?

10 points to OKKayak for applying logic and rationale thought. That is how laws are improved and the safety of the industry can be improved as a whole, for the better

By not stopping at the clearly marked stop sign, he committed vehicular homicide (many counts).

Which:

A) is not murder.
B) is not a legal definition in Canada. One of the correct legal definitions in Canada is Dangerous Driving Causing Death which is what he is being charged under.

It's safe to say the driver is a killer, not a murderer.
Remember former Boston Bruin / Edmonton Oiler Craig McTavish? He was charged and convicted of vehicular homicide in the states and he served time.

The big question is why did he run the stop sign. I believe this will be a huge factor come sentencing

No one is questioning whether he was driving the truck, and right up to the exact second he plead guilty, that's all we knew for sure.

I believe what Vegas1500 was referring to is the fact that your figures don't make sense because even if he paid cash bail, when he showed up for court he'd get it all back. So bail is net zero.
