Attorney General David Eby has released the following statement on James Kyle Bacon's judicial stay:
“When I learned of the Supreme Court of British Columbia’s decision to stay the charges for James Kyle Bacon, I was shocked, as I’m sure all British Columbians are right now.
“I write these words today with tremendous disappointment.
“The families of the victims and all who have been impacted by this terrible crime deserve peace, and they will not find it today.
“The BC Prosecution Service will be reviewing the court’s decision closely to identify possible avenues of appeal.
“It is important to note that the individual remains in custody on other related charges.
“I am confident that the BC Prosecution Service will complete their review as soon as possible.”
