Killers Alexandre Bissonnette & Bruce McArthur Sentenced For Their Horrific Crimes

The sentences are being criticized with both Bissonnette and McArthur potentially eligible for parole within their lifetimes.

Alexandre Bissonnette – the Quebec Mosque shooter who murdered 6 people and wounded many others – has been sentenced to 40 years in prison before being eligible for parole.

He was charged with six counts of murder, and 40 counts of attempted murder. That includes the attempted murder of 4 children.

Many members of the Quebec City Muslim community were – rightfully – critical of the sentence. The idea that Bissonnette could be eligible for parole at some point in his life is absurd.

The Crown had proposed Bissonnette be sentenced to 150 years in prison.

In the case of Bruce McArthur – who has admitted to the murders of 8 people, including many vulnerable members of Toronto’s LGBT community – he was sentenced to 25 years in prison without being eligible for parole.

The sentence against McArthur, one of Canada’s most brutal serial killers, is also being slammed. Many have said that he should have been sentenced to 25 years stacked on top of each other for each murder (200 years) – showing the government values the life of each innocent person killed.

As I said on Twitter, this (and many other weak sentences for brutal killers) is why Canada needs to bring back the death penalty.

“Alexandre Bissonnette and Bruce McArthur are why Canada needs the Death Penalty.”

I have to disagree with you regarding you demand to bring back the death penalty. The real problem is, we need to Make a life sentence, a life sentence. 1. Too many innocent people have been executed. Death is NOT a reversible sentence. ie. David Milgaard – Innocence Canada innocencecanada.com/exonerations/david-milgaard 2. The death penalty causes MORE people to be murdered by killers. 3. Too many murderers are not convicted because juries won’t convict – they will if is a prison sentence, however. 4. Death sentences are given out more based on racial biases. Usually, I find you to be a… Read more »
