Alex was struck and killed by a transport truck on Saturday, north of Kingston.  Alex was posted to CFCMU and had only served 8 years in the CAF.

RIP Alex.  It was a pleasure to have known you.

Bad driver’ jailed for fatal crash

By Sue Yanagisawa, Kingston Whig-Standard

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 4:25:11 EDT PM


A commercial truck driver who lost control of his southbound big rig on Perth Road three years ago, crossed into the northbound lane and collided with the motorcycle of 30-year-old Master Cpl. Ryan (Alex) New, killing him, has been sentenced to two years less one day in provincial jail and prohibited for five years from driving in Canada.

Harjant Singh, 36, was also ordered to perform 200 hours of community service in the first 18 months of a two-year probation following jail. Superior Court Justice Gary Tranmer recommended, in accord with the wishes of the victim’s father, that those hours be performed to the benefit of Canadian Forces members or veterans, for example at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

…….., who’s from the Brampton area

If anyone is tracking highway fatalities in Ontario lately, this seems to be a common factor.

It would appear that an investigation of Driver Testing and Licensing in this area of the GTA would be in order.

In a CBC report from April, in 2017 there were 343 deaths on OPP patrolled roads, with 91 deaths involving commercial trucks.  In the Kingston area, off the top of my head, it seems that most of the commercial truck incidents are with drivers from Quebec.
