HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

The Hearing has been posted-poned yet again DECEMBER 10th (I am upset)!

However, this will give us MORE TIME to get MORE SIGNATURES!

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!

THANK YOU FOR CARING…
