**update from cbc: Czornobaj is only receiving 90 days in jail and 10 years ban on driving**
It’s rather unfortunate that some developed countries like CANADA would still punish people for doing good. 25 year old Emma Czornobaj received life in prison for negligence for the death of a motorcyclist and his passenger who smashed into her car.

In 2010, Emma Czornobaj was driving down the highway when she spotted a group of ducklings without its mother on the median of the highway. Czornobaj stopped to help them find its mother and was prepared to take them home to raise when Andre Roy, 50, who was travelling with his 16 year old, Jessie crashed into Czornobaj’s car. Roy died on site and his daughter was found pinned under the Honda Civic and died later in a hospital. Roy was reported to have been travelling at 70-80mph in a 60mph zone. His wife was following behind him and avoided injury and doesn’t blame Czornobaj for the deaths. She did not blame Czornobaj for their deaths but the jury still sentenced Czornobaj to life in jail.

This is definitely a complicated case, should animal lovers be punished for being compassionate? While the victim’s wife chose to forgive her should Czornobaj still go to jail? Share your thoughts and comments below.
