Far be it for me to bring politics into this but.. there is a very strong and real anti-Ontario segment of the population in Alberta.
Not to mention a fair share of those with the 'good ol' boy' ways of thinking..

Truck driver from Ontario, obviously with east Indian background.. a bunch of Albertans, oil workers at that, dead,

Justice? Justice?

Not bloody likely.

I'm sure if they could have hung him right there on the spot and got away with it, they probably would have.


He stands about as much of a chance of being found innocent as Saddam Hussein did in his trial.

Thought the same thing Snafu...

I wonder if it was somebody else,would the trial be held 3 years later??? Seems like there's a big price to pay in parts of our country if you wear a turban...

EDMONTON - An Alberta Mountie painted a picture Tuesday of police confusion and miscommunication at a traffic control scene just minutes before a semi-tractor trailer plowed into a stranded passenger bus, killing six people.

Const. Richard Dozois testified that he didn't know why then-rookie Const. Daniel Kehler drove away and left his post just moments before Inderjit Singh Virk barrelled past and broadsided the loaded passenger bus that had become stuck across the highway.

After reading the clip you just posted michael there seems to be more than enough blame to go around.  :-(

A 3 year wait for a trial would probably be benificial as the event isn't fresh in the minds of the general public.  A lot of the oilfeild workers are not from AB and there would be very little call for action in this case.
