Easy punishment makes mockery of Canadian law

David Whiffin, Clayton Cunningham of Brentwood Bay should not have gotten off so easy

To all rendering punishment to those who seem able to do as they please:

They kill children, torture animals, drink and drive, murder innocent people. Then they spend years at the taxpayers’ expense trying to get off without going to jail. There appear to be special rules for cruel people.

David Whiffin and Clayton Cunningham are cruel. They are responsible for the death of a dear old horse that they promised to look after.

Please, don’t make a mockery of Canadian laws like the way they do things in the U.S. These two men are thumbing their noses at the law.

Why can’t you give them a fine that makes them think not to harm animals again? I suggest $30,000 and six months in jail.
