If helping your father out with his business was of importance to you, then you should have proceeded with preventative measures to a "stolen" N. That being said, I hope you take that advice for when your N restarts when you get your license reinstated eventually.
As for the appeal, I had a friend get suspended for a speeding ticket and a fail to wear a seatbelt ticket. These are different offences, not REPEAT offenses, which for him, as an N, helped him with his appeal. He basically sent ICBC evidence of the community involvement he had, family he must transport, and commuting for school and work he needed his license for.
$100, countless hours of preparation and signed letters, and 30 days of waiting into the appeal later, he got a one month reduction on his suspension.
He felt stupid for wasting his time in the end, as 30 days into the appeal he learns that the hours and money he spent collaborating his argument didn't pay off the way he wanted it to.
Basically, your appeal decision from your prep work to the results takes about 30 days. So either way youre fucked and have to take the bus for some time anyway.
Deal with it, and stop making an excuse for an N sign, most people on this forum have been through the GLP, youre not bullshitting anybody.
