I would like to take this time to formally apologize to the Comox Fire Department and the City of Comox for the part that I played in regards to the Anderton Road fire on Sept. 6, 2011.
I take full responsibility for my part in the fire and I am very sorry that I didn’t do more to stop the fire from being lit and that I didn’t stay at the scene to help the firemen and police. I fully understand the seriousness of the fire and how lucky we were that it was able to be contained so quickly.
I am sorry that I put the lives of the firemen in danger as well as the lives and property of the people that lived near the fire. I also apologize to the Town of Comox for the cost to put the fire out and for the damage that the fire caused.
We were very lucky that it didn’t spread further and destroy any homes and that no one was hurt.
This has been a life-altering event for me, which has opened up my eyes to the severity of fires and how quickly they can get out of control. I promise you that I will fill my obligations to the community and that nothing like this will ever happen again.
I would like to thank the Comox firemen for their bravery and the hard work that they do. I would also like to thank the police officer and Community Justice Centre for not only allowing me to see the consequences my actions had on the community but also for giving me the opportunity to make amends.
My deepest apologies.
