    Hi, Jennifer!

    Personally, I think the conditional sentence is too light in this case. I’m often surprised that many defence lawyers try to take up racial matters in order to get lighter sentence in Canada or the US. I’m just sorry for the bus driver.
    Thank you for giving me a good opportunity to watch and think about the news because I didn’t pay attention to it.

      Noriko, thanks for commenting on this story. In Canada, not only do defence lawyers argue in favour of considering Aboriginal ancestry for their clients, but judges also must consider this before they give their sentence. I don’t know if you’ve read some of the comments around this news story, but there has been a lot of disagreement about this particular case.
