  1. We really need to get to the bottom of this. When an airplane explodes because of a terrorist bomb and kills everybody on board, including Canadian citizens, we should always be concerned, no matter how long it takes to uncover the truth. It is scandalous that, after all this time, only one suspect has been convicted. What happened to all the others? Has it taken so long that they have all blown themselves up in other terrorist attacks?

  2. I do hope he serves his time in the general population as I am sure someone serving time had a friend or relative on that plane. NINE YEARS for conspiring to kill 331 people? And now you will no doubt give him protective custody,,, private cell, personal guards…special food?
    The man is clearly a psychopath and should be labeled a danger to society and remain under lock and key for every minute of the rest of his life. Every cent he has, and every cent he earns until he dies should go toward restitution to the families of that disaster. I am sure his family will survive without a house, cars, and any other assets he has/had. After all if you can take someones house for some pot plants… how about for helping murder 331 people?
