Thanks, Beer. I wish there was a mechanism to get Robert Latimer out of jail.

I cannot do petitions, and I would not start one, or sign one if started by someone else.
A personal problem, perhaps, but I have to agree with every word I put my name to, and I have only signed petitions twice in my life; one was only five words long.

Besides, the case went beyond public scrutiny; the parole board is not supposed to respond to the world outside.

Sorry; at this stage I'm a bit baffled as to what to do.

Perhaps we can't help Robert Latimer, but only make things easier for the next people, facing future problems...
