A man who committed what the National Parole Board calls one of the most heinous crimes in the history of B.C. has been denied day parole.
67-year-old Steven Leclair shot and killed three people in a Vancouver bar in 1980, then drove to the Richmond RCMP detachment where he killed Constable Thomas Agar, and wounded another officer.
After more than three decades in prison, the parole board says there will always be a question mark around whether Leclair will re-offend.
Leclair began participating in a series of escorted temporary absences in 2010 and has been in a minimum-security institution since June 2011.
However the parole board says Leclair still has a number of risk factors that need to be addressed.
Leclair must wait at least a year before applying again.
