      Don, your rant is spoiled by a litany of spelling, punctuation and grammar errors … simply too illiterate to deserve serious attention.

    And tell me then, why are they NOT charging the 50 year old who they found injured behind the wheel of his car in Crapaud Very impaired. He seems to think that the RCMP aren't going to charge him. Next time maybe he'll kill himself, or someone you Love. Charge them all.

    Just look at this situation as one more Impaired Driver not on the road drunk. He may have been sleeping it off but lets not forget he drove there and would be on the road again after he woke up. Great work to whoever reported this to Police. This tool of calling 911 is the best thing we have to fight this epidemic of driving while drinking. This behaviour is unacceptable.

    Maybe sleeping in car was the best thing if he realized he wasn't fit to drive? Hopefully that will be considered, he wasn't driving drunk.

      If you are behind the wheel, with possession of keys, then it can be assumed at some point you in fact drove under the influence. If, as you say, he was sleeping it off, he should have crawled in the back seat and made sure the keys were locked in the dash out of his reach. Who knows, with the cold temperatures, maybe the police saved his sorry ass. Sorry, I have NO pity for lame defense excuses, Technically, he wasn't driving at the time, but his vehicle got there somehow!!

    Tell us Don, how much do the Tories pay you for each time you post? You must do pretty good off them judging by how often you post. I just hope they pay by quantity and not quality of your comments.

    I have to agree that Don's (I am a big Conservative supporter and proud of it) schtick is becoming tiresome. He seems to be a one trick pony who only has one opinion and that is Liberals are bad and Tories are good. Pretty narrow view of the world.

    I would not be surprised if Don is on the Tory payroll in some capacity. More likely a Conservative staffer who has been told what to post. He is such a partisan he makes Garth Staples look like a moderate.

    Don is a Tory and posts nothing but rants against the Liberals. The fact he equates getting drunks off the roads with lining Wes Sheridan's pockets tells you all you need to know about Don.

    @Don, is that what you really took from an article about arresting a drunk driver & reporting drunk drivers to the police? How about the lives that are saved? Do you think the pitiful little fine this person will get will do anymore then cover the cost of the jail time, police salaries & court time? I suppose you would rather we have more innocent deaths caused by idiots who haven't got the common sense to know they aren't capable of driving? This has got nothing to do with lining the pockets of Wes Sheridan's friends! I think you need a reality check buddy!

    Every time the police nab an impaired driver, they may have intervened in saving the life of your loved one or you. Keep up the good work. Call 911 even if it is to report your own family member.

    every time a drunk is nailed wes smiles all the way o the bank. so the more drunks police can get the more money wes has to help his friends with "non" pay back loans.

      Don, your theme is really getting tiring when we have a much more important issue in this story, i.e getting potential killers off the road. It's time to give your continuous rant a vacation.
