On June 18, 2020, Brady Robertson, a repeat offender and driving with a suspended license, recklessly drove through the intersection of Torbram Road and Countryside Drive. Robertson drove against a red light, and violently t-boned a vehicle at over 100 km per hour, killing 37-year-old Karolina Ciasullo and her three daughters; Klara (6 years old), Lilianna (3 years old) and Mila (1 year old).
What: A rally for stricter laws and harsher penalties for impaired and dangerous drivers.
When: Sunday August 16, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Where: Queen's Park – 111 Wellesley Street West, Toronto. Legislative Assembly Building grounds on the south side.
Who: This event is open to the public. Please visit the Facebook event page "Time for Change – Justice for Families" and mark yourself as attending. Please note, face masks must be worn at the rally.
Why: Too many Ontario families have had loved ones killed or seriously injured by impaired or dangerous drivers. Impaired and dangerous driving remain the leading causes of road fatalities across Canada. It is time that the laws are changed to protect our communities from these reckless drivers. Currently, Ontario law imposes very little punishment to individuals who have either killed or seriously injured someone, which leaves the victim's families devastated and feeling that no justice has been served.
