Waiiiiit a second....on a careful re-read, this does not jive...what exactly is being said here? Is he charged, or not?


Sounds like he is being charged with "dangerous driving" instead of "dangerous driving causing death".

Re: Ask a Sheriff

How safe is it to be a Sheriff in BC? Are there ever days when your actually going to need to use force or be in a threatening situation? They don't wear duty belts because they look cool... Of course they deal with high risk situations that require the use of force. Their 'clients' are criminals; ...

Re: A nation of $100,000 firefighters

I get the reason, and, to an extent, I agree with it. Maybe I am misinformed, but if there is a serious accident, say bad car crash, do the victims still have to pay? I don't know about the rest of Canada, but in BC they charge a flat rate of $80 per call regardless of the nature of the call and th...

Re: A nation of $100,000 firefighters

As much as I would like to see stupidity being fined, what is the point of the emergency service if they charge for it too. Same thing as being charged 200 bucks to ride in an ambulance. Part of the reason ambulances charge a fee is to discourage stupid calls. A lot of people will call an ambulance...

Re: A nation of $100,000 firefighters

So, I assume, the truck was pulled do to a standard that requires trucks of a certain age to be removed - which seems like a safety issue, the union grieves it and then the city coughs up, essentially, an all inclusive vacation to everyone. WTF I think where the article says "pull a truck out ...

Re: Transit Security in Winnipeg?

In regards to Transit Security on Buses.... does anyone here have any insight into how to improve bus policing/security? Not only for patrons but also for operator assault. Often times the offenders flee before police/transit security can even be called because the assaults arent very serious (spit...

Re: National or Manitoba Building Code for doorways

I'm not a building code expert, but I believe that both the building and fire codes would require stairs there since it would be an exit in the event of a fire.. Contact your municipality, they should have a building inspector on staff who can answer that. I don't think you would be able to "fo...

Re: Smoking on a plane

Flight attendand has delegated authority from the Captain, as does the rest of the crew. Sorry, but no, they don't. There is nothing in the Aeronautics Act or subordinate legislation (Acts, Measures) that allows the Pilot in Command, who is only a peace officer when an aircraft is "in flight&q...

Re: Armed Special Constables proposed for Toronto Island Air

Why not appoint the US Customs officers as special constables and restrict their appointments to whatever needs they have for the clearance area? Don't they already do this under the RCMP Act for Secret Service/FBI agents when the President visits Canada?
