Queen’s Park, OntarioNDP MPPs Cindy Forster (Welland) and Wayne Gates (Niagara Falls) issued the following statement

“We are deeply disturbed to hear news reports about Karla Homolka volunteering at a Montreal area school. We share the concerns of parents who believe that their children should never have been put in this position.

Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo were convicted of committing horrific crimes against innocent school children in our region. 

Niagara Falls Riding MPP Wayne Gates

We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the violence that Homolka and Bernardo inflicted upon the victims and their families. We repudiate the lasting damage that they did to our communities with their despicable acts.

Our thoughts today are with the families, and the members of our communities, who are re-traumatized by recent news reports.”

  1. I saw the CTV video clip where their reporter was trying to interview Homolka by the school. Not a very proud moment for a TV network. Homolka clearly lost her cool at the intrusion which didn’t look good on her either.
    The emotions raised across the country for what this woman was a part of just will not settle down. She has been tried, served jail time and is now a citizen with a criminal record.
    If we can’t forgive her then allow her some privacy to raise her children in near normal atmosphere. I’m sure every school mate of her children is aware of their mother’s claim to fame. They must be tortured continually. Her children deserve a life before they grow up and become suicidal from a feeling of worthlessness or a problem to society as was their mother.

  2. Dave Thomas, you completely missed the mark where this discussion is concerned. Karla is a serial killer. Period. There is no cure for a mind capable of such abhorrent behavior. She should not be allowed to associate with other people’s children, EVER, and especially in the absence of other parents or adults.
    She is not enjoying her freedom because she is a decent or reformed human being. She is free because she cut a deal with the devil. It is unfortunate that she has children of her own. It is not for me to say whether she should have been allowed to keep them. That is an entirely different discussion.
    As for forgiveness, again, it is not up to you and me. We did not lose our daughters to two of the most sadistic murderers this country has ever seen. What you and I do have a responsibility to do is to ensure that children everywhere are safe from known psychopaths and sociopaths and that means insisting that schools (and any place that is staffed where children congregate) perform proper background checks of all personnel.

    BRAVO Carla.

    I knew police who worked on this case and it left them forever scarred so I cannot imagine how the families of the victims feel. Some of the things she did (not released to the press) were beyond the imagination of any sane individual. She was and still IS a psychopath. That does not change. Forgiveness be damned. It’s a travesty that she was EVER freed from jail but she was simply a more sinister and clever psychopath than her husband who she let hang to dry. She bamboozled even the psychiatrists which makes her even more dangerous due to her cleverness. I remember a video interview where she is explaining how they tied and cut up a victim and in the same breath she was worried about getting her nice furniture back after she would be released. What sick, twisted mind is that? She wrote a friend complaining about money spent on her own sister’s funeral that should have gone to her elaborate NOTL wedding, the same sister she offered to her fiancé and who she allowed to die.

    I do feel sorry for the children that she should never have had but that cannot be changed. Why was she allowed to raise them? Children have been removed from parental care for less and who would marry the b**** except someone pathological themselves? Where is our justice system and how could it have been fooled so completely by this evil excuse for a human being? Sorry to open this can of worms but if anyone deserved capital punishment, the name is Karla.
