Donald Brodie has admitted that he was driving the car that struck and injured Steve Kania in December 2013.
In a hand written letter to Castanet dated June 16, Donald Maxwell Brodie expresses remorse for the events of Dec. 6, 2013 that saw Steve Kania forced into an induced coma with head trauma and several fractures to his lower back.
Brodie admits to being the driver, and accepts fault for running an RCMP roadblock that night, which initiated a “crazy high speed chase”.
However, he does not accept all blame and instead points a finger towards how the police reacted to the incident.
“The Kelowna RCMP are as much to blame as I am. They tried to ram me head on at 50 MPH I swerved to avoid a head on with police and ended up hitting Steve Kania. That’s why the IIO (Independent Investigations Office) have gotten involved to investigation the police. They should have called the chase off. I was purposely driving on the wrong side of the highway to get that chase called off. It ended in a residential St. With people standing on the sidewalks the police saw all these people and chose to ram me and re-directed me into Kania.”
Brodie then apologizes for what happened, but doesn’t specify where his sorrow is directed.
He also mentions his friend Nate Fahl, the man initially believed to be the driver.
Brodie says Fahl was passed out in the passenger seat during most of the chase, and asks the public to reconsider their perceptions of the man, now found innocent of this crime.

All sorts of credibility there. Only CBC and other national media would believe his story. let alone promote it for him.

NOT. What a piece of shit.
Wait for the media circus that calls for charges against the Mounties for doing their job.
Some days I really think this country is going to Hell in a hand basket.

There are probably more people that agree with him than you want to know about.
