Hopefully they are made to rebuild the cabin ...
+1 This is very sage recourse. Having these kids supply the materials and incur the expenses and rebuild the cabin with their own hands would give them the opportunity to learn a life changing lesson and benefit all parties involved. A further thought, placing a plaque posted on the cabin with the names of it's builders would be a reminder to them that they did something good out of a bad situation. Purely punitive actions will carry less benefits, IMO.
Those delinquents don't have the money for that, and I wouldn't want anyone of their moral turpitude having any involvement in the construction of my dwelling.

Have the insurance company use the most expensive builders available to rebuild the place, and recover the cost from the wages of these shits with savage interest.

This is part of how they used to punish crimes. The result: once a criminal, always a criminal. It is one of the themes in Les Miserables.

Another sad part to the story is the cabin wasn't insured.

Hopefully they are made to rebuild the cabin or compensate the owners/insurance company.
It depends on the people and how it's done, but this approach is far more successful than pure punishment. Sometimes the victim and perpetrator even become, if not friends, at least on good terms. The woman, MacIntosh, from Squamish, who got to know and helped the man who killed her husband comes to mind.

Idyllic spot, remember seeing that building from the water a few years ago, when paddling by

It's not as though they're children that didn't know how matches work, and this was the unintended outcome. They're adults, and they made a conscious decision to maliciously destroy someones private property.

Two situations-

-if they don't get a severe punishment, they won't really learn anything.

-if they do get a severe punishment, it may cause them enough inconvenience and turmoil that they end up being even more contemptuous of societies civil proceedings.

Neither of those are ideal, but one of them sees the victim properly compensated, which should be the first priority.

Went for a paddle up Widgeon Slough today and I was curious to see the site of the burned down cabin.

Not much activity there. When I got home I googled to see whatever happened to the three idiots. It turns out they got a CONDITIONAL DISCHARGE !!! Something is not right here...

Men who set cabin near Pitt Lake ablaze get conditional discharges

Two men who pleaded guilty to mischief in connection with a fire set at a remote hunting cabin last summer have been given conditional discharges.
Christopher Sine and Jamie Plante were sentenced in provincial court in Port Coquitlam on Monday.
A third man, Michael McNeil, has not yet been sentenced.
On the evening of July 7, 2014, the three men tried to break into the circa-1950s wood cabin, which was near the south end of Pitt Lake on Widgeon Creek and accessible only by boat.
The men then set the cabin on fire, and the flames spread to nearby trees before burning out.
Fire officials sent in helicopters with water the next morning to dampen any hot spots.
The cabin was not insured and had an assessed value of $22,000.
The owners had installed security cameras in 2008, which provided police with images of the men involved.
The images were released to the public and a number of tips were received within a few hours.
Sine, Plante and McNeil turned themselves in to police a short time later.
In December, the men pleaded guilty to mischief over $5,000. They were initially facing charges of arson and break-and-enter.
As part of their conditional discharge, Sine and Plante will be on probation for 18 months.
If they abide by all of the terms of their probation, they will be treated as if they have not been convicted of a crime and the discharge will eventually be removed from their criminal records.

They were probably very "remorseful" at their lawyer's direction.
The problem is the justice system AND the lawyers that represent maggots like this. This public defender will wear it like a badge of honor; that he got THREE arsonists off without convictions.
