January 8th – Conservative MPs Michael Cooper (St. Albert-Edmonton), the Official Opposition Deputy Shadow Minister of Justice, and Len Webber (Calgary-Confederation), will join Grace Pesa whose son Francis Pesa, 20, was violently killed by an impaired driver in Calgary in January 2014. They will make a statement on the full release of the impaired driver who killed Francis, as well as on reforms to the Criminal Code to strengthen impaired driving laws. The statement will take place on Tuesday, January 9th at 10:00 a.m. at the Westin Calgary (320 – 4 Ave S.W., Calgary).
This month Francis’ killer, Kulwinder Singh Chohan, will complete his short three-year sentence, of which he served only five months behind bars, and will have his drivers’ license reinstated. Chohan, a self-admitted repeat impaired driver, has never apologized or shown any remorse for his crime.
