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
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.
