    DiManno: Judge put justice at risk in Tori Stafford trial

    In the Rafferty trial, Heeney left out, forced out, a slew of evidence that became public knowledge only after the jury retired to deliberate, rulings of admissibility made largely in pre-trial arguments but also after proceedings got underway in the London courthouse, with the jury sent out of the room. Crucially, jurors never learned of material retrieved from Rafferty’s laptop computer showing that he’d done Google searches on such topics as “underage rape,” that he had an unhealthy interest in child pornography and bestiality, that he’d trolled necrophilia websites, that he’d downloaded movies about child kidnapping and child sex killing as recently as 12 days before Tori’s abduction.

    Five years from now, when people think of Victoria Stafford they are going to think of the little girl that changed Canadian Laws and made it a safer nation for all children.

    Incredible article. Must Read.

    Why Tori will always matter
    By RANDY RICHMOND, The London Free Press

    A few nights ago, almost in tears, my wife said to me:
    "So this is it? Once the trial is over we're all supposed to just forget about Tori? When it's all over, she's really gone and no one remembers her again?"
    The first answer I gave to my wife is one I believe to be true.
    "I think people will remember her."
    The second thing I said is something I know to be true.
    "I'm going to miss her."

    Their anguish palpable

    By RANDY RICHMOND, The London Free Press

    Nine of the jurors who convicted Rafferty of murder, as well as several police officers, attended court to listen to the victim impact statements from eight of Tori's family.
    The officers included OPP Det. Staff Sgt. Jim Smyth, who vowed during a tense police interrogation of Rafferty May 20, 2009 to watch when Rafferty was sent from court to a life in prison.

    what life will be like for Rafferty in Kingston Pen:

    "In 2005, a Star reporter walked through the sliding steel gate that guards the home of Paul Bernardo and other notorious Canadian killers. Read the story from inside Kingston Penitentiary, which was originally published by the Toronto Star on June 21, 2005."

    Michael Rafferty is joining fellow murderers ex-colonel Russell Williams and Paul Bernardo in a Quebec prison.

    The man who kidnapped, raped and killed eight-year-old Victoria “Tori” Stafford was recently moved from maximum-security Kingston Penitentiary to the maximum-security Port-Cartier Institution about 800 km northeast of Montreal, relatives of the girl said.

    “I don’t care where he is, as long he’s behind bars and not receiving any privileges,” Tori’s mother, Tara McDonald, said Friday.

    Williams and Bernardo were moved from Kingston to Port-Cartier in the winter, sources told QMI Agency in February.
