A good lawyer would have advised plea- bargaining. Oh wait! He did, but his client insisted on taking full responsibilty for his carelessness. Maybe he's hoping for leniancy from the Judge, but his lawyer would have told him there's no guarantee of that. Without plea-bargaining he has thrown himself at the complete mercy of the Court, seemingly in the interest of not putting the families through any more grief. All people should be so accountable. What a sad story for all involved.


or hoping to get less time, sad story for his victims, not him, he ran a stop sign and killed 16 people

Sad for the truck driver too and his family. A horrible horrible tragedy for everyone concerned. Maybe point fingers at the trucking company - aren't charges still pending?

I'd take it farther and look at Federalizing the Commercial Driving Programs so its the same standard across the Country.

:135: So what you're saying is that if in a moment of carelessness you killed someone (maybe didn't see a stop sign or slid on some ice?) we should have no concern for how you fell about it and just assume you have no remorse? Seriously, I bet you would have been all over the plea-bargaining thing in an attempt to do anything to save some of your butt.
You know our educational system is failing us when we have posters who
think liberals are “far left”, and conservatives are “kind of in the middle”

No, I don't know him personally. Do you?
Earlier in this thread you stated he should be charged with murder. That means he hit the road that day intent on killing someone. You also claimed he is just faking remorse to get a lighter sentence. Care to enlighten us on how you came to these conclusions?

Mmmm - you do know how that sounds? Don't think anyone involved believes it was his intention.

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


Bingo !!

How is one to know whether they have been trained properly or not ?

He aquired a licence, stamped by the Government.

The age old method of "you'll pick it up as you go" mentality of
most licencing programs.
