  1. Piano, Good write up but what does the child benefits have to do with this incident. Do you have any proof that this woman used the child benefit to purchase drugs? Laura

  2. Itโ€™s so lucky for so many people she didnโ€™t do more harm. It was prime time going to school and going to work. Your a piece of shit. Have a good look at your life and figure out if killing someone is whatโ€™s you want and want you want to be known for.

  3. Why are the names of these creeps protected? Many other cities in Ontario are in fact publishing the names of these selfish areses who are charged even though they are not yet convicted. These turds have absolurtely no respect for the lives of other people. But then I imagine even publishing their name has no effect on such a wasted mind and poor excuse for a human. Too bad our laws are a sick joke. In the USA you can be charged with fraud and get life in prison and in Canada you can kill someone and get less than 5 years in jail time. WTF

  4. Why is her name being protected? She has been charged with an offence and even though she has not been convicted her name should be published. She should be charged with every offence they can possibly stick to her. I am very relieved that no one was hurt. This POS needs to be locked for a long time.
