In Committee from the House of Commons

Public Safety and National Security – March 12, 2020

MPs continue to ask questions about the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) and the circumstances that led to the death of a young woman in Quebec. Sex worker Marylène Lévesque was allegedly murdered by convicted killer Eustachio Gallese, who had been granted a day parole pass despite being deemed at a moderate risk of reoffending.

Appearing before the committee to offer opinions on the matter are criminologist Philippe Bensimon, former PBC member Dave Blackburn, and the John Howard Society’s Catherine Latimer.
