Canadian taxpayers paid more than $80,000 for Brenda Martinís return trip to native soil last week, CBC News reported Monday.
Read the full story here:
Flight to bring Martin back cost taxpayers over $82G
I believe that Brenda's plea of ignorance rings hollow, she was smiling with confidence when she was crowned jailhouse queen???? in Mexico. Why was she not crying then.
I believe that she is a classic merchant of baloney.
A good representative of Canadian drug runners,money launderers and other Canadian violaters of foreign jurisprudence.
CBC is a frequent less than objective supporter of many people like her.
Known associates of criminals who plead ignorance and expect Canadian taxpayers to pay for their frequently insulting,bad behavior.
Brenda at least should be tried for either criminal association or gross stupidity.

Your government can only help you so much, and then you are on your own, as it should be.

1) her boss is in a US jail and they don't give lighter sentences for turning in lower down's. They give lower down people lighter sentences for ratting on higher ups. Regardless his word would get him nothing and he was convicted of being a fraud artist, a liar, his word is worth squat.
She prolonged the case by switching attorneys just as much as the mexicans did.
Many guilty people are convicted in foreign countries and a few innocent ones are too, just like canada. Guilty or innocent they all say they didn't do it.
Her family can pay the $3600 fine and have her back today according to the fiberals.

I'm embarrased by the number of people who just can't accept this woman was convicted of a crime.
Women can commit crimes too.

There are far more worthy causes: as far as I can see, working at a hospital every day, the healthcare crunch that reporters like to make headlines about; FYI in our hospital at present there are 4 people waiting for a bed, and three of them are fighting cancer. Priorities, perhaps?
What happened to common sense?
Get real, people. Let's not waste any more time, headlines, money or effort on this convicted criminal.
