Wetaskiwin reader horrified at Trudeau’s weakness

Trudeau ignores child murderer’s transfer: writer

I was totally horrified by Prime Minister Trudeau’s display of “righteous indignation” in the House of Parliament over the discussion of Terri-Lynne McClintic being released from a medium-security prison to an Indigenous healing lodge.

In case you don’t know who Terri-Lynne McClintic is she is the woman who was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of first-degree murder of a little 8-year old girl, Victoria (Tori) Stafford. McClintic’s boyfriend, Michael Rafferty repeatedly raped the little girl and then she was ultimately killed with a claw hammer to the head.

Does the Prime Minister of Canada not have one shred of decency in his heart? It takes great courage to stand up against evil. He is a father. How could he not be moved as a human being as that vulnerable little Tori Stafford was victimized and brutalized at the hands of that monster of a woman?

How could he take the side of that monster? How would he feel if that had happened to one his children?

Why can’t the Prime Minister find it in his heart to intervene on behalf of Tori Stafford’s family? This is an atrocious miscarriage of justice to allow Terri-Lynne McClintic to be moved out of prison and not serve her full sentence. This woman is a predator and the public should be protected from her, especially vulnerable little children.

This is not about being Conservative or Liberal – it is about the Prime Minister of Canada manning up and doing the right thing. As Canadians we should be e-mailing and jamming the phone lines of Parliament Hill to express our outrage at this action.
