Courts were too lenient
Re: The Osoyoos man (Herald, Aug. 9 ) who had sex with a then 14 year old girl. He got the minimum sentence (90 intermittent days) ## ## .
Apparently he is a “productive and law abiding” citizen. These are the ones who get away with such crimes, hiding under the guise of respectability. Educators, sports coaches, religious leaders, all of them are productive and supposedly law abiding. Why should a person with a job be considered less likely to re offend? After all, they did offend while employed.
Oh, yes, the man’s lawyer said it was the proverbial “lapse of judgement.” Must have been a long lapse as it went on for several months. I think the biggest lapse here is a lapse of “judge” merit.
Joy LangWould like to reconnect
Dear Editor :
I have wanted to ask if a letter may open a window from my past.
Around the age of 11 years old I left the British orphanage on Vancouver Island to be adopted by Jack and Marjorie Lovick who owned an advertising company in Vancouver and resided in the upscale area of Kerrisdale.
I went from sharing a cottage and dining in a mess hall off a tin plate with about 300 other mouths to feed to eating in luxury with fresh squeezed orange juice every morning. Living with the Lovicks was like living in a dream world I could never of imagined.
A live in maid with the maiden name (Poshman) was a sweetheart but one day she left to get married, I believe in or
It’s possible the lady is still alive and would no doubt remember me as “Tommy Lovick,” which was to be my adopted name.
I owe her an apology for ringing the gold plated dinner bell in the dining room to see how fast she could respond to my call.
This fine lady could be very much alive and a call would warm up my heart with memories of a fine lady from my past!
Hopes office will reopen
Re: Possible reopening of Veterans Affairs office in , (Herald, Aug. 12).
I do hope MP Stephen Fuhr is successful with this undertaking.
As a Korean War veteran, I am entitled to and accept the offerings from my federal government through Veterans Affairs.
