I would like to thank all of the people in the Restorative Justice program for giving me the opportunity to start fresh and to turn my life around. I’d like to thank the RCMP for stopping me from really doing harm to the community.
I’ve learned my lesson because I didn’t like dealing with this kind of stuff.
My experience with Restorative Justice was easier than I thought and it gives people who commit crimes the opportunity to change the path they are going down.
So I would like to thank everybody involved with my case, who took time out of their day to help me get my life back on track.
