An­der­son spon­sors e-Pe­ti­tion 1886 call­ing on gov­ern­ment to re­verse McClin­tic trans­fer

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Saskatchewan - CON­TRIB­UTED

David An­der­son, MP for Cy­press Hills--Grass­lands has spon­sored an e-pe­ti­tion for con­stituents who are con­cerned about the trans­fer of convicted child mur­derer Terri-Lynne McClin­tic to the Oki­maw Ohci Heal­ing Lodge in Maple Creek, SK.

“My of­fice has re­ceived mul­ti­ple calls and emails from con­stituents voic­ing their con­cern and anger over the de­ci­sion by Cor­rec­tions Canada to trans­fer the woman that mur­dered eight year old Tori Stafford to our area. This pe­ti­tion cre­ates a means for res­i­dents to send a strong mes­sage to the Prime Min­is­ter and Pub­lic Safety Min­is­ter Ralph Goodale that this is not ac­cept­able,” said An­der­son.

On Oc­to­ber 3, the Lib­er­als de­feated a Con­ser­va­tive mo­tion call­ing on the gov­ern­ment to send McClin­tic back to On­tario.

“This Prime Min­is­ter and his MPs con­tinue to re­sist our calls to put McClin­tic back be­hind bars. Trudeau and his Lib­er­als failed the peo­ple of Maple Creek and area, and the Stafford fam­ily, by re­fus­ing to do the right thing. The gov­ern­ment has the moral, le­gal and po­lit­i­cal au­thor­ity to act to cor­rect this in­jus­tice,” An­der­son con­cluded.
