To the Editor:
“Laws are spiderwebs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.” – Honore de Balzac
“The law in its majestic equality forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the street and to steal bread.” – Anatole France
As in the March 13th, 2019 Taber Times court section, two very similar driving offences were reported with two very different court outcomes. One defendant was a well-connected individual, the other, an older woman on a low fixed income. It is not for me to comment on the judgement or pleas, but the optics of the results certainly lend credence to the two quotations above.
