Life­time ban

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - OPINION -

Did you read the ar­ti­cle Killer drunk driver eli­gi­ble for tem­po­rary ab­sence soon and feel an­gry and frus­trated over this de­ci­sion? I did. My thoughts im­me­di­ately went to the Neville-Lake fam­ily and the suf­fer­ing they al­ways will ex­pe­ri­ence.

Three young chil­dren and their grand­fa­ther are gone.

This was a sense­less tragedy caused by Marco Muzzo. a drunk driver, who had a “lengthy record of driv­ing in­frac­tions” noted dur­ing sen­tenc­ing.

How does Cor­rec­tional Ser­vice Canada over­ride a judge’s sen­tence of 10 years? He could be re­warded with day pa­role in Novem­ber 2018, full pa­role May 2019 and statu­tory re­lease June 2022 with a 12-year driv­ing ban.

No way; it should be a life ban. Giv­ing his li­cence back pro­vides him fur­ther op­por­tu­nity to dev­as­tate the lives of an­other fam­ily. Of­fend­ers rarely learn from past ex­pe­ri­ences. Pa­tri­cia Smith Lon­don
