** Ontario man, whose driving caused the death of a Toronto paramedic and his girlfriend, is fined a mere $1,000 as punishment


** An Ontario driver from Hastings Highlands has been sentenced to a mere $1,000 fine after taking the lives of a Toronto paramedic and his girlfriend in a car/motorcycle crash last summer. That is the word from Global News (Greg Davis/March 23) which said Jamie Mountney, 38, also had his licence suspended and was put on probation for two years. According to the news site, Mountney was behind the wheel of a PT Cruiser on July 15, 2017 when he crossed the centre line and plowed into a group of motorcyclists. Mountney killed medic George Eliadis, 52, and his girlfriend Shari Keyes-Williams, 42. He also seriously injured two other riders. In court, Mountney apologized for his actions and said the loss of Eliadis and Keyes-Williams would continue to haunt him. Though he said he would never forgive himself, Keyes-Williams’ parents said he should. They said they had no ill will towards him, despite him causing their daughter’s death.
