Surely, there is a God!
The Supreme Court of Canada today reinstated Jack Grover’s obstruction of justice conviction, ruling that the Saskatchewan Court of Appeals was wrong to overturn the guilty verdict. Grover was charged following a deadly fire in one of his properties which left two children dead and an adult man suffering permanent brain damage. In June of 2006, Grover was found guilty of falsifying smoke detector maintenance records. On August 31 he was sentenced to serve one year in prison for his actions but he was released the following December when the conviction was set aside by the provincial appeals court.
Grover has a lengthy history of problems related to his real estate holdings which include single family homes and apartment buildings in Saskatoon. In one five year period over 30 fires were reported at his properties. He’s been convicted of making a false or misleading statement, obstruction of justice, as well as other infractions under the Fire Prevention Act and Saskatoon’s fire bylaws. This is the first conviction which came with a prison sentence. Sadly, it’s far too short.
