Re: Manslaughter conviction nets 18-month prison sentence, Oct. 25.

After the shock wore off, I didn’t know if I should be embarrassed or disgusted with the Canadian law system.

A killer, who admitted what he did, gets 18 months in jail – similar to what a habitual shoplifter would get.

I don’t care what Brendon Menard’s problems are, the protection of the public should be the court’s No. 1 concern.
