John Ivison: For a child killer like Terri-Lynne McClintic, there is only retribution

Trudeau, who handled the government’s defence of the file, was increasingly flustered, as if secretly ashamed of the line he was peddling. He deserved to be

The debate in the House of Commons over the fate of the murderer of eight-year-old Tori Stafford was as bad-tempered and unpleasant as any in recent years.

Justin Trudeau, who had rushed back from the United Nations in New York to handle the government’s defence of the file, was increasingly flustered, as if secretly ashamed of the line he was peddling. He deserved to be.

Trudeau accused the Conservatives of playing “political games” over the decision by Corrections Canada to transfer one of the little girl’s killers, Terri-Lynne McClintic, to a minimum/medium security Aboriginal healing lodge in Saskatchewan.
