Letter of apology to the Comox Valley

If anyone out there is thinking of committing theft because of a tough position you may be in, it is not worth it.

Dear editor,

I am sorry to this community:

If anyone out there is thinking of committing theft because of a tough position you may be in, it is not worth it. Committing theft will haunt you for the rest of your life and hurt many people around you. I owed money due to some financial problems and thought stealing was the only way out, I was caught and charged. After I was caught I realized that I could have asked my family and friends for help. I told them everything and they told me that no matter what, they loved me and are willing to help.

This incident was not just about me. The community, my family and many relationships were affected due to my actions. Not to mention, this incident could have cost me my rights to travel, obtain a good job and many other things.

No matter what is happening, think of other people before yourself and remember that your family and friends will always be there to help you. I would like to apologize to the people I have harmed with my actions and express my gratitude to the volunteers at the Community Justice Centre for this opportunity to make right what I have done wrong.

This apology to the community was part of a Resolution Agreement reached between complainant and respondent at a Resolution Conference held at the Community Justice Centre.
