Today’s report, “Honouring Kaitlynne, Max and Cordon”, from the Office of the Representative for Children and Youth outlines a number of improvements on how various departments should communicate and act when dealing with families in crisis. I welcome these changes within the Ministry of Children and Family Development and law enforcement so other families needing assistance are able to access that help.
I am thankful for the thorough and thoughtful report from Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth. The continued support from Minister of Justice and Attorney General of British Columbia, Shirley Bond who met with me two weeks ago and the Premier of British Columbia, Christy Clark who spoke with my family today is most appreciated. I am confident the changes in this report will be made so no family or child will ever have to experience what my family went through.
My focus is on the future. Ensuring that the man who murdered my three children remains in a facility where he is not a threat to anyone is my goal.
Allan Schoenborn has not served a single day in jail for these crimes and the thought that on April 18, 2012 the B.C. Review Board will again be considering his release sickens me. Knowing every year for the rest of my life near the anniversary of when my children were murdered I also have to deal with their murderer getting an annual release hearing is agonizing.
The B.C. Review Board must read this report and realize they are dealing with a sick, broken, vengeful, manipulative man who will commit acts of violence again. The best ways to honour my children is to ensure that a) their murderer is not released; b) the B.C. Government makes the changes outlined in today’s report; and c) the Federal Government corrects the loop holes in the Criminal Code which allow cold blooded murderers to hide behind “not criminally responsible” instead of serving a long well deserved jail sentence.
