Friends, family speak up for hit and run victim

Editor: Where’s the justice?

I am writing on behalf of a friend who can no longer speak for himself.

Andrew Leduc was run down and killed on the Langley Bypass Aug. 7, 2013 by a hit-and-run driver.

I recently found out this driver is not, and never will be, charged under the law for any infractions.

Where is the justice for this young man, Andrew? He was the father of three young children and had a wonderful and caring family.

These children will grow up knowing the person who ran their father down never faced any consequences for his actions.

I fail to understand how this can happen. The person responsible walks free and alive. How is it possible?

This person hit Andrew, left him for dead and walks free. I hope he can live with himself and sleeps well at night.

Three children, one who was only months old, will grow up never knowing their father. No justice was done in his name.

It is such a shame that a life is worth so little to those who control our legal system. All I can say is, Andrew, rest in peace my friend.

Marilyn Thomson,

Langley
