Apr 01, 2015 - FAMILY OF SASKATOON TEEN KILLED BY DRUNK DRIVER SPEAKS OUT


The family of a Saskatoon teen killed by a drunk driver is speaking out after finding the man convicted in his death is being moved to a minimum security healing lodge. Robin John was sentenced to two years in prison in October 2014 after pleading guilty to impaired driving causing the death of Quinn Stevenson.

Bonny and Craig Stevenson say they are sickened by the news John was transferred to the Willow Cree Healing Centre in Duck Lake.

“I don’t profess to have any knowledge of what happens at Willow Cree Healing Centre,” said Bonnie Stevenson. “I don’t know what programs he’s a part of … I don’t know how this may benefit any rehabilitation.


“I do think it’s a pretty cushy sentence considering he killed a bright and beautiful young man in our son.”

The Stevenson’s found out about the transfer in January after Bonny applied to Corrections Canada to be kept up-to-date on John’s whereabouts.

They plan to go to John’s parole hearing in May, hoping to get some answers, something they didn’t get from him in court.

The entire justice process has the Stevenson’s pushing for change in the system.

Quinn Stevenson, 17, was killed on the morning of Aug. 3, 2013 after being struck by a vehicle on College Drive.
