  1. Richard Rieger says:

    Three Points:

    A) Two Years is insufficient time for him to re-consider his actions,and what potential there was for further disaster.

    B) How to make the Lifetime Ban stick. Does this mean he can relocate to another province or state and apply for a Drivers Licence there? or does it just mean that with ‘good behaviour’, the offender will have the ability to re-apply in say 3 to 5 years again.

    C) After his time in prison, will he be able to find suitable employment, and then be able to pick his life back up,or will he now be a further drain on the collective GDP. Time will only tell.
