Action Time: Alves's Sentence Needs to be Appealed

Dr Dawg has the goods on the person we can contact to urge that the no-jail sentence for convicted rapist Fernando Manuel Alves be appealed by the Crown.

The decision maker is:
Mr. Grant B. Wong
Deputy Regional Crown Counsel
222 Main Street
Vancouver, B.C.
V6A 2S8

FAX: 604.660.4347

Dr Dawg says that Mr Wong will not be back in his office until September. But that's no reason to delay writing.

It should be a letter, mailed or faxed (lawyers seem to like faxes). A nice, polite letter from a concerned citizen worried about policy implications. Letters from British Columbians would be double-plus good.

Alves needs more than a slap on the wrist. Would-be Alveses need to get the message -- rape = jail.

Let's get this done.

Background here and here.

Yes, faxes seem to work!
Find a free one where?

Fax. Fascinating history.

Me, I'm going to be putting a stamp on an envelope.

Mine was sent by fax, early this morning.

Fax and snail mail (back-up is good).
