Re: Sgt Steven Desjourdy

Canadian justice has been served and Steve will work a little overtime to make up for this minor setback. As for the victim, who cares? No one. Great and fair system, we should all be very proud of ourselves. Sorry that the last six years have been hard on this mans family as a result of his “discreditable conduct”.

Just heard that legislation has been passed increasing fines for distracted drivers up to 1,000.00 dollars. Our system continues to be based on increasing revenue for offenses rather than dealing with the cause itself.

And they say Cornwall is the only place with weird happenings. Proof once again weird things happen in other locales besides Cornwall.

David Oldham re: distracted driving. It may seem weird, but I agree 100%. I was thinking this last night. But have the increased penalties eliminated drunk driving? Nope, but I do think it has helped. Perhaps the same type of penalties are needed for distracted drivers. A $100 fine and 3 demerit points will not deter drivers intent on driving distracted.

Agreed Hugger1. Sometimes, not every time a slap on the hand of a four year old works but after the age of reason kicks in you need to deliver the message in an alternate way.
