Gates believes the victims were alive, makes no sense for him to transport dead bodies. #Garland

Without Patti #Garland (sister who ID'd his truck) Gates says Douglas might never have been caught #yyc

Patti Garland deserves a gold key to the city. She has the admiration of so many, regardless.

They include denunciation, deterrence and the need to separate the offender from the community. #Garland

Gates says his role minimal. Just to decide length of parole ineligibility. Sentence will be life. #Garland

Do Canadian prisoners feel the same way about child killers as United States prisoners? If so, Garland may be in for longs stretches in solitary.

Yes but as others have said before he will never be placed with other prisoners. He's going to spend the rest of his life in his own private tiny box just like Bernardo.
