10:00 AM court hearing for Andrew Blake with Regan’s family
The charges laid against Andrew Blake are of “careless driving causing death”, a non-criminal offence. It’s shameful that someone can violently kill our beloved Regan and get away with it with a non-criminal charge.
We believe our darling Regan’s violent death is worthy of a more detailed, meticulous, intensive investigation than what culminated as a mere moment of “careless driving,” writes Bill Russell.

Regan deserves so much better. Her family deserves so much better. Therefore, we are inviting you to join us for the court date and demand that charges be upgraded.
Signs will be provided but feel free to bring yours. See you there.
