Guilty verdict in three-year-old Carp collision

OTTAWA – A Kanata man has been found guilty on all six charges stemming from a motor vehicle collision near Carp three years ago that left two people dead.

Kanata resident John Anstie, who is known to have suffered from an opioid addiction, was found guilty on two counts each of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death and criminal negligence causing death.

Well-known Renfrew couple Douglas and Joan Foster died at the scend of the Dec. 4, 2016 accident.

 Justice Anne London-Weinstein rendered her verdict in an Ottawa courtroom earlier today (July 30).

Some 20 supporters of the Fosters were on hand as the judge delivered her verdict. The case drew national media attention, in part because the notorious painkiller fentanyl played a central role in the collision.

The counts carry a maximum of between 10 and 14 years in jail. Sentencing will occur at a later date.
