  1. This is a very misleading title!!

    This guy's girlfriend moved out due to health issues, presumably this upset him enough to run down her family members who were helping to move her things out. Very sad.

    Nothing to do with him being elderly, he is just a ?

  2. Canadian police , lol ???? WHAT A JOKE .
    Indian foreign minister , publicly calling canadian lie in U.K. , saying Canada didnt share any evidence at all , and they might help in investigation if canada share evidence with them , but canada refused to share anything , clearly canada doesn't want investigation to move forward . They just want this political drama to move on not the investigation.

  3. Sounds like the reason he ran them over is not because he was "elderly" and didn't know what he was doing / confused.

    Sounds more like he has a history of anger issues judging by his neighbours and he specifically targeted these 3 people who were relatives of his ex-girlfriend, trying to retrieve her belongings from his apartment. Because she had the audacity to move away from him.

    Misleading title.

  4. This title is misleading. It has nothing to do with him being "Elderly". That's like saying "White man" or "Brown haired man" murder charge. If you read the comments those who didn't actually watch the full clip think it happened because he was old.

  5. So this tragic incident has nothing to do with his age or driving skill but rather a domestic trouble. Change your title to something more fitting to this story Global News!
