I’m happy there were first-degree murder convictions handed down last week by B.C. Supreme Court in the Surrey Six trial. The rest of the parties involved in that tragedy should receive first-degree murder convictions too, as we need to see justice for that horrific day.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t bring any of the victims back. I’m sure all the members of the families of the six men who were murdered have mixed feelings and are elated that justice is being served for their loved ones.
But I’m also sure they feel immense pain and sadness knowing they will never see their family members again and remember the inconceivable way in which they all died.
Those six were sons, brothers, husbands, uncles, cousins and friends. My condolences to the families and I hope they find some sense of closure in these convictions – if that’s even possible.
