Two years after a shooting that critically injuring an armoured car guard, the Ontario Courts sentenced two of the three men involved in the attempted murder and robbery to 11 and 6 ½ years respectively.
“The safety of every member is what we preach every day. That’s why I’m so very disappointed in today’s decision,” commented Jason Sweet, Director of the Teamsters Canada Armoured Car Division. “The sentences were far too lenient given the gravity of the crimes.”
“The brother who was shot that night was just doing his job. Today’s sentence will never make up for the pain and suffering that he will have to endure for the rest of his life.”
Teamsters will continue to fight for the safety armoured car workers and tougher regulations in the armoured car industry.
