Man sen­tenced to 13 years for ar­sons, shoot­ings

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A man who tar­geted 15 fam­i­lies with fire­bomb­ings and shoot­ings be­cause he thought they had links to a train­ing cen­tre for emer­gency re­spon­ders in Bri­tish Columbia has been sen­tenced to 13 years and six months in prison. Vin­cent Che­ung, 43, of Lan­g­ley, pleaded guilty last week to 18 of 23 charges stem­ming from at­tacks in 2011 and 2012. As­so­ciate Chief Jus­tice Austin Cullen said from the bench on Wed­nes­day that, while Che­ung’s mo­tives were rooted in delu­sions, his re­sponse was “very real and very dan­ger­ous.”
