Bill to be Introduced to Prevent 'Gas and Dash'
One politician is doing what he can, to make sure another fatal gas and dash doesn't happen in Ontario.
Liberal MPP Mike Colle will introduce a private member's bill Thursday, that will mean pre-paying for gas. The bill also calls for fines on gas stations that force employees to pay for any 'gas and dash' thefts during their shift.
It's called "Jayesh's Law", named after the gas station employee that was killed last Saturday.
The Ontario Ministry of Labour is also investigating the gas station where it happened. ``We owe it to the family to take a long, hard look at what lessons we might draw from this incident,'' Labour Minister Linda Jeffrey told the legislature.
The man accused of taking off without paying for the $112 dollars worth of fuel, still hasn't been found. Police urge 39 year old Max Edwin Tutiven of Toronto, to turn himself in and face a charge of second degree murder.
