Parole hearing for Calgary man who strangled wife, buried body in basement

Parole hearing for Calgary man who strangled wife, buried body in basementBOWDEN, Alta. — A man who strangled his wife and concealed her body in a wall of their home after enduring what he described as years of domestic abuse is scheduled for his first parole hearing today.Allan Shyback was convicted of manslaughter and indignity to a body in the 2012 death of Lisa Mitchell.He was originally sentenced to seven years in prison, but the Alberta Court of Appeal increased it to 10 years.Shyback testified at his trial that he killed Mitchell in defence as she attacked him with a knife.He said he panicked, put her body inside a plastic bin and cemented it into a basement wall of the Calgary home they shared with their children.Last fall, the Appeal Court, in adding more time to his sentence, noted the severity of Shyback's crimes"For two years, the respondent led the deceased's family to believe that she was alive and there was some hope of her returning. He maintained this deception until the Mr. Big operation revealed the truth,'' Justice Jack Watson wrote on behalf of the three-member panel."It was particularly cruel for the respondent to suggest to the children that their mother had abandoned them but might return one day, even though he knew she was entombed in the basement of the house in which they were all living.''An undercover police operation began in 2013 and ended with Shyback's confession and arrest in Winnipeg.The parole hearing at Bowden Institution, south of Red Deer, Alta., will assess any risk he may present to the community if he is released. In most cases, board members give their decision and reasons the day of the hearing.— Follow @BillGraveland on Twitter Bill Graveland, The Canadian Press


Vancouver Granville community leaders voice support for MP Jody Wilson-Raybould

Vancouver Granville community leaders voice support for MP Jody Wilson-RaybouldVANCOUVER — When Jody Wilson-Raybould was demoted in cabinet, a rabbi in her Vancouver Granville riding reached out to her with a message from the Bible. It quoted Joseph, who said after a betrayal: "You meant it for bad, but God meant it for good."The intention of the note was to convey that sometimes what looks like a curse can actually be a blessing. While it's too soon to tell whether that's the case for Wilson-Raybould, community leaders say recent events have not shaken their strong support for their MP."She is very down-to-earth and extremely honest. She never promised something that she couldn't or wouldn't try to deliver. And she was really curious," said Dan Moskovitz, the head rabbi of Temple Sholom, who wrote the encouraging note."I just thought she was a lovely person and still is."Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet last week amid allegations the Prime Minister's Office pressured her when she was attorney general to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution. She was later demoted to Veterans Affairs Canada.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has denied that his office directed her on the matter and has said that the departure of treasury board president Scott Brison necessitated the cabinet shuffle. On Monday, his closest adviser, Gerald Butts, resigned as his principal secretary, while denying any impropriety.In the Vancouver riding she has represented since 2015, supporters are disappointed Wilson-Raybould is no longer in cabinet but are respectful of her decision. Reverend Steven Epperson said many members of his Unitarian Church of Vancouver are more left-wing than the governing Liberals, but they deeply admire Wilson-Raybould."They think that what's happened is a tragedy," Epperson said. "We're not privy to what's going on behind the scenes, but I think we're all aghast at the kind of covert and overt discrediting of her that's going on in some Liberal circles. I think it's shameful."Many church members, regardless of party affiliation, want to find out the truth and hope Wilson-Raybould remains in politics and continues to represent the riding, he added.Both Moskovitz and Epperson described Wilson-Raybould as a principled, committed MP who met with them and supported their initiatives, including programs to help refugees and people struggling to find affordable housing.Several community leaders in the riding expressed pleasant surprise when they expected brief meetings with Wilson-Raybould but she stayed for 45 minutes to an hour.Walter Wells, of the community group the Vancouver Odd Fellows, said Wilson-Raybould was extremely friendly when she sat down with him to discuss a charity contest for high school students to visit Parliament."I was very conscious that she was a busy person and we're just some small, local charity," he said. "I kept expecting to get out of my chair and say, 'Thank you for your time and goodbye,' but she kept asking about our history, our membership and our purpose. ... To me, (she is) not a typical politician at all."Wells said he supports her "more than ever" after her resignation from cabinet."It seems to me that she's taken a principled stand," Wells said. "I am so inspired by what I think is going on with her, and disgusted by what I think is going on with the Prime Minister's Office."Wilson-Raybould has not explained why she quit and has cited solicitor-client privilege to refuse comment. She has hired a former Supreme Court justice to advise her on what she may say legally.The Vancouver Granville Liberal Riding Association said in a statement it stands in full support of Wilson-Raybould and her important work for the community and Canada.Marpole Oakridge Family Place holds an annual community gathering and Wilson-Raybould has attended every year since she was elected, said Andrea Krombein, literacy outreach co-ordinator."She's talking to whoever wants to speak to her. People are gathering around her. She's acknowledging everybody. She's focusing on one person at a time. She's truly, truly, listening," she said. "You can actually see from her body language, what she's saying, that her goal is to connect and educate and reassure."Krombein said while no one knows what really happened, she has no doubt Wilson-Raybould has been completely professional."I feel that she's probably working through it the best way she can. It does not change our impression of her at all."— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.Laura Kane, The Canadian Press


After a week away, SNC-Lavalin questions await MPs returning to Parliament

After a week away, SNC-Lavalin questions await MPs returning to ParliamentOTTAWA — The opposition parties are charging back into the House of Commons today, loaded with questions for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about what his office did to try to help the embattled Montreal engineering company SNC-Lavalin in its corruption case.Before MPs left for a week in their ridings, Jody Wilson-Raybould was veterans affairs minister and Gerald Butts was Trudeau's principal secretary, his closest adviser.Now they've both quit and it's still not clear what Butts or anyone else in the Prime Minister's Office might have done to push Wilson-Raybould on SNC-Lavalin when she was attorney general and had a say over the charges the company faces.In the afternoon, the Commons justice committee is holding a closed-door meeting to discuss how its probe of the affair should go.Opposition members want to call at least nine witnesses, including Butts, other top Trudeau aides and Wilson-Raybould, but Liberals on the committee have so far used their majority to keep the witness list to three.For now, the committee is planning to look only at the political and legal roles of the justice minister as well as the inner workings of a so-called remediation agreement — the alternative to prosecution sought by SNC-Lavalin.The Canadian Press


'Tallest moose' war becomes battle of bands as Canadians answer Norwegian ditty

'Tallest moose' war becomes battle of bands as Canadians answer Norwegian dittyMoose Jaw's moose war with a Norwegian town is hitting new heights. Last week, the Norwegian band Ganic Vimarida released a song that called for a truce between the two communities that have been vying for the title of the world's tallest moose statue. The song suggests neither Moose Jaw nor Stor-Elvdal should care who has the tallest moose, and the singer suggests there be a truce.


Protesters across U.S. rail against Trump's emergency, demand Congress act

Protesters across U.S. rail against Trump's emergency, demand Congress actAmericans furious with President Donald Trump's latest gambit for financing his long-promised border wall vented their frustrations Monday, gathering at protests across the country to denounce the president's "fake emergency" and to demand that Congress stand up to his administration. In Washington's Lafayette Square, directly across the street from the White House, several hundred protesters brandished placards and chanted slogans as they used the President's Day holiday to drive home their dismay — both with the commander-in-chief and Capitol Hill. On Friday, Trump — desperate to secure billions in funding for a wall he initially promised Mexico would pay for — declared a national emergency at the southern border, giving him access to nearly $7 billion in additional funding, including from the Department of Defense.
