The Parole Board of Canada will review day parole denied to a man who committed what’s described as one of the most heinous crimes in the history of B.C.
The hearing to review day parole for 67-year-old Steven LeClair has been set for March 2017.
LeClair shot and killed three people in a Vancouver bar in 1980, then drove to the Richmond RCMP detachment where he killed an officer and wounded another.
The Parole Board has admitted LeClair has a number of risk factors that need to be addressed and says there will always be a question mark around whether he’ll re-offend.
Regardless, the appeal division of the Board has ordered a new review of day parole.
The review will be carried out by Board members who did not take part in the original decision.
