A petition with close to 8000 signatures has been circulating to ensure Emma Czornobaj does not do jail time after she was found guilty in the death of a motorcyclist and his daughter who crashed into her car, that she pulled over to save ducks crossing a highway.
The person who started the petition, under the name DJ Xfile, says he started it because he felt wrong about the jury's verdict.
Emma Czornobaj was convicted on two counts of criminal negligence causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing death.
“It struct a deep cord in me so I took action, started the petition and quickly came to realise that many people share my opinion and feel that this is not right and want to have their voice heard in the matter.”
The goal is to get 10 000 signatures and to present the petition to the justice minister.
“There is a way to have her contribute, pay back, help heal, educate society that does not include jail time.”
DJ Xfile says he only recently met with Czornobaj but did not know her before starting the petition.
