    Her attributes are a blindfold, a balance and a sword.

    The blindfold represents impartiality

    The balance scales typically suspended from her left hand, upon which she measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition.

    This is the sword of truth. The downward direction of the sword is meant to symbolize punishment but tempered with mercy.

    I understand there are rules re victim impact statements. I wrote one for my case in the US but it still hits a nerve when at the final end, the criminal still has a few rights. I understand Canada gives a too much rights more than the victim which I feel, JMO, is stupid.

    A lot of people have been asking how they can show their support for the families of the victim's of Douglas Garland.
    The impact on the families of 5 year old Nathan O'Brien and his grandparents Alvin and Kathy Liknes--is beyond words...unimaginable.
    If you would like to help, there is a playground being built in Nathan's honour. They are trying to raise 150 thousand dollars for this to happen.
    here is a link:

    Justice was done. DG can rot for rest of his life. Victims families can try to move on, knowing killer is where he belongs. Nathan will live on in his brothers.

    RIP.

    I live in the community that houses the Saskatchewan Pennitentary, and I've asked some penn guard friends of mine about segregation. They said there is no permanent seg, max 30 ish days. Not sure what you would call what Bernardo was in, but doesnt sound like they keep max security prisoners on alone for long periods of time anymore.

    I keep coming back and refreshing the page. I don't know what I'm looking for, or hoping for. I thought I'd feel better knowing that he'll be locked up for the rest of his pathetic life. But this one has hit me really hard. I can't even begin to imagine how the O'Brien, Liknes, and even the members of the Garland family must feel right now.

    I had thought Greg Head and his brother had donated the services, but after reading back through a few articles, I can't see anywhere where it said the services were donated.

    Yes I believe that was for the Nathan O'Brien Foundation. A separate effort from this playground one.

    If it was donated, we would have heard about it. I think it was paid for with Greg Head's fundraising. The Airdrie community also raised funds, as did the Canmore friend of Kathy.

    Even in 2014 it seemed like a lot of money was moving around in the name of Nathan O'brien.

    Wishful thinking but in a perfect world Garland might've told the court why he did it, what was going on in his head. And apologized to the family or at least showed a tiny bit of remorse. It wouldn't make anything better but I can't begin to imagine how awful it must be for the family to have sat across a courtroom from a stone cold evil monster for five weeks. And not get any answers whatsoever.

    That's what I'm thinking, too. It's like other cases I've followed here, for example Sherri Papini...you follow the story from day one only to get to the end of the book and the last page is ripped out. There are no real answers, no conclusion wrapped up neat and tidy. Nothing he would have said would have brought Nathan, Kathy, and Alvin back but maybe it would help a little with dealing with what happened and moving on from here.

    Will we find out eventually where he is housed forever?
