Bernardo should stay put

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - OPINION -

So Paul Bernardo has seen the light, re­pented, ac­knowl­edged the er­ror of his ways and is ready to start be­ing in­te­grated back into so­ci­ety. If Cor­rec­tions Canada is about re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and not about puni­tive mea­sures, it’s time they start the rein­te­gra­tion process. In or­der to gauge his suit­abil­ity, Cor­rec­tions Canada could start by go­ing to Mill­haven, swing Bernardo’s door open, and move him into the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion unit. My guess is it will take him about two min­utes to as­cer­tain if he is ready to in­te­grate. At this point, one can only spec­u­late, if Bernardo was given the above op­tion as a pre­cur­sor to any fur­ther at­tempts to se­cure his in­te­gra­tion and re­lease from prison, you may find he would be quite sat­is­fied to sit in his pro­tec­tive cus­tody cell and cry for an­other 25 years.
