Righting a wrong, the story of Maryam Rashidi | 5
Maryam Rashidi’s life focused on creating opportunities for her son.
But in 2015, both Rashidi and her husband were laid off from their jobs in the oil and gas industry.
June 7, 2015, was her fourth shift working at a Calgary gas station — a job she took to make ends meet.
That morning, Rashidi said goodbye to her husband and son, and went to work — the last time they would get to talk to her.
Just hours later, they would learn Rashidi was taken by ambulance to the hospital. She’d been run over while trying to stop a gas-and-dash.
Follow the twists and turns this case took and hear from the offender himself, who chose to run Rashidi over rather than pay for $113 worth of fuel.
In this episode, you’ll also hear the far-reaching the impact this crime has had.
