Wood Buffalo: Code Charges

wood buffalo: The original Criminal Code charges were stayed in Fort McMurray provincial court on Wednesday, according to CBC. Alberta Justice spokesperson Dan Laville said Wednesday that police continued to investigate the fatalities after the original charges were laid, and that work included finalizing an accident reconstruction report. The 48-year-old man now faces one count of careless driving under the Traffic Safety Act. On the basis of the new evidence, Laville said in an email, the Crown determined the charges of dangerous driving causing death did not meet the prosecution standard of 'reasonable likelihood of conviction.' The collision happened in the Fort McMurray subdivision of Wood Buffalo on Real Martin Drive.
