Charges in crash that killed mom of 4

  • Charges in crash that killed mom of 4

A 56-year-old man has been charged after a fatal crash near Trail, B.C., in October 2022 that killed a mother of four and injured her children. 

BC Highway Patrol says Terry Jackson faces three charges, including the most serious allegation of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Police say the head-on crash involved Jackson's pickup truck and a Chevrolet Traverse driven by a 34-year-old woman travelling with her four children. 

Officers say in a release that all five in the Traverse were taken to hospital after the crash, but the mother "tragically passed away" and the children were treated for serious injuries before being released. 

Highway patrol says Jackson was charged after an extensive investigation by police. 

The accused is due in court on Feb. 29 in Rossland, B.C.

In a piercing report released Tuesday, Marie-Josée Houle says the expansion of homeless encampments across the country is a national human rights crisis that requires immediate action and co-ordination involving all levels of government.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is mulling what it would mean for his party if the supply-and-confidence deal that ties his party to the Liberals should end prematurely.  The NDP signed a political pact with the Liberals in 2022 to support the government on key votes in exchange for progress on shared priorities like pharmacare.

Minister was warned lifting international student work limit could undermine program
Allowing international students to work more than 20 hours a week could distract from their studies and undermine the objective of temporary foreign worker programs, public servants warned the federal government in 2022. The caution came in documents prepared for former immigration minister Sean Fraser as Ottawa looked at waiving the restriction on the number of hours international students could work off-campus — a policy the Liberals eventually implemented.
