To the community of Williams Lake and Town Taxi:
It is with my utmost regret that I write this letter. There is no excuse for my actions that night.
My behaviour was absolutely horrible. I know that there is no way for me to undo what happened, but I hope that this letter can help mend the situation. It goes without saying that drinking until the point of blacking out is an incredibly irresponsible thing to do, and this experience has left me with a new understanding of the word irresponsible. Since that night, I have not drank to the point of intoxication. Drinking now only brings back the disappointment in me that I felt, and still feel, about the actions of that night. One letter cannot express how sorry I feel, but it is the first step of many in making sure nothing like this ever happens again. I hope that my actions can serve as a learning experience for others who read this.
I am willing to do anything in an attempt to make things right for Town Taxi and the community of Williams Lake.
