  1. Odds on the incompetent crown letting him plea and the judge saying he’s a poor soul that has had a tough life ! Pity the death penalty is gone !

  2. If he is declared mentally competent, first degree murder means life in prison with no parole for 25 years minimum

    BUT… is he mentally competent ?.

    1. Here we go with the mentally competent bull crap ! He killed and maimed at two different locations and was competent enough to come from Toronto !

  3. Sincerest condolences to this beautiful young woman’s family and friends.
    The guy that did this is obviously not right in the head, he would have to be to do something sick like this.
    As far as the city goes their priorities are all wrong and they need to change those drastically before the huge drug and crime problem get much much worse.
    An unwanted downtown plaza and more tens of millions on a dead downtown is such a waste when there are so many other ignored serious issues. That ship sailed when anything of significance moved above the hill to conduct business and it’s not coming back.
