"The reality is, Mr. Dyck only knows crime," Court of Queen's Bench Justice Rob Graesser said at Thursday's sentencing. "Jail time seems to be little deterrent to him."

On the evening of Aug. 26, 2017, Dyck and an unidentified accomplice waited outside a room at the West Edmonton Motor Inn. When one of the male victims stepped outside his room to go to his car, he was confronted by Dyck and his accomplice wearing masks.

One of the victims suffered chipped teeth and cuts and bruises to his face. He was sliced down his back by the man with the machete.

'Or he simply doesn't care'

Two police officers happened to be in the motel parking lot when Dyck and his partner, still wearing masks, bolted from the room. Dyck ran to the Mercedes, carrying stolen car keys. His partner went to another vehicle.

Police followed the Mercedes.

Dyck ran red lights, drove on the wrong side of the road and reached a speed of 140 km/h. At the time, he had a court-ordered driving prohibition. The August 2017 police pursuit was the fifth time he'd been involved in a high-speed chase.

His accomplice has not been identified.

'Convicted on 10 charges'

Graesser noted Dyck was diagnosed with learning disabilities as a child and has had problems with drugs, including methamphetamine, crack cocaine, heroin and opioids.

The judge expressed concern that Dyck's crimes appear to getting more serious.

The Crown suggested a sentence of 14 to 17 years; the defence asked for a range of four to seven years.

Dyck was convicted of 10 criminal charges, including break and enter, firearms and driving offences, stealing a motor vehicle and being pursued by a peace officer.

Graesser arrived at a total sentence of 16 years. But he noted a sentence that long "could be crushing and leave [Dyck] without any hope for the future."
