Allan Sheppard, father of slain cyclist, Darcy Allan Sheppard, will again be in Toronto to mark the seven (7) years since charges in the vehicular homicide of his son were dropped, without trial.
I am in Toronto for the seventh annual gathering to commemorate (not celebrate) the 25 May 2010 court proceedings (not a trial "in open court") in which "independent" (though not necessarily impartial) special prosecutor Rick Peck announced and explained (not necessarily credibly) his decision to withdraw criminal charges against former Attorney General of Ontario Michael Bryant in the 31 August 2009 death of my son Darcy Allan Sheppard.
Wayne Scott and I will set up a memorial ghost bike in front of Old City Hall at 6:30 p.m. on 25 May (Thursday).
Please join us, if you can, as an expression of continuing support and solidarity.
The forecast is for rain, so we may have to adjourn to a local watering hole for respite. I have to return to Thornhill at a reasonable hour, so we can leave early, after paying our respects.
With gratitude and best wishes,
