My name is Sharona Levi. I’m from Elsipogtog First Nation which is located in New Brunswick, Canada. A little over 2 years ago on the 24h of February, 2018, a beloved member of our First Nation community, Brady Francis, was out visiting friends in a near-by town of Saint-Charles where he was struck by a vehicle and later passed away. His parents, Dana Francis also of Elsipogtog and Jessica Perley of Tobique First Nation both witnessed the tragic passing of their son as they arrived moments after the accident. 

On April 28th of 2020, the judge gave her verdict after two years of court proceedings and acquitted him of all charges as she recited his defence of “he thought he had hit a deer”. 

Brady’s Bill 
I am writing to you today in hopes that I have your support to have changes made in our Provincial Motor Vehicle ACT, in honour of Brady, that would make it legally mandatory to report any motor vehicle collusion with wildlife  (ex: deer/moose and or bear) to any peace officer and/or Conservation Officer which will also include the duty to report as witness of the collision. This is to ensure that the defence of “I thought I hit a deer” is never to be used in our Judicial Justice System again.
