The couple drove the child down a dirt road north of Guelph and stopped.
They took her into a field where Rafferty brutally raped her.
Then it was McClintic's turn.
She beat and kicked Tori, lacerating her liver and breaking multiple ribs,
then finished her off with repeated blows to her skull with the claw hammer.
Innocence. Gone. Suffering. Unimaginable.
CRY-BABY TRUDEAU WON'T CRY FOR TORI
In response to pleas from Tori's father that he right the wrong
Trudeau was a flat-liner. He didn't bat an eye.
And this from a guy who's the laughing stock of the foreign press
for constantly bawling his eyes out and apologising "on behalf of all Canadians"
for alleged wrongs perpetrated against visible minorities
since Europeans arrived on these shores five hundred years ago.
Last week, in Canada, it hit the news that a convicted child killer (of an 8-year-old girl) had been released from a maximum security prison (where she was 8 years into a life sentence with no eligibility for parole for 25 years) and secretly transferred to an Indian reservation thousands of miles away and incarcerated in a so-called "Native Healing Lodge" prison -- with no fences or cells -- where she lives in a condo and has access to the children of other inmates.
The convicted murderer is not of Indian (aka Native or Indigenous or Aboriginal or First Nations) heritage but she 'self-identifies' as Native and has agreed to abide by Native healing techniques which are far less restrictive than "white man's" retribution. In Canada the law is supposed to be applied equally to all people but exceptions are sometimes made for certain religions and races. Or, to quote Orwell, "All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others".
Members of Parliament in the House of Commons (mainly those in the official opposition party, ie the Conservatives, aka "Tories") stood up during Question Period the day after the story broke and asked the Prime Minister (Justin Trudeau, son of Pierre Trudeau who was prime minister from 1969 to 1984 and ran on the slogan "We must make Canada a just society" and named his firstborn, the aforementioned Justin, after "justice") if he would use his power to reverse the transfer and send the child-killer back to the barbed-wire prison where she belonged.
In reply the Prime Minister, in his surly manner -- after lecturing the MPs for their lack of decorum in recounting the grisly details of the child's rape and death -- intoned from a prepared speech words to the effect that the facility the prisoner had been transferred to is no different than the facility she was released from, ie both are classified Medium Security. The same question and answer went back and forth a few times with stone-faced Trudeau sarcastically reading his lines with his usual "uh-uh-uh" between every other word.
Getting no satisfaction from the Prime Minister (who passed the buck to the Public Safety Minister) the Conservative MPs vowed to bring the request back to the floor of the House the next day and make a motion asking all Liberal and NDP MPs to vote YES or NO to condemning the child-killer's transfer and reversing it.
Tori's father, Rodney Stafford, blasted McClintic's transfer which, although it happened nine months ago, he'd only just learned about now. He said it made him sick and the killer's transfer had re-victimized him.
Since the convictions of her killers in 2010 and 2012 respectively, all the family of eight-year-old Tori Stafford has sought is closure. Tori was raped and murdered on April 8, 2009, and would have been 18 years old today. Her father, Rodney Stafford, said he is still haunted by the life his daughter could have lived by this time...
It would be easier for Rodney to cope with those feelings if his daughter's story wasn't brought back to the fore every few years. First, it was convicted killer Michael Rafferty's failed appeal in 2016. Most recently, it's the relocation of Rafferty's co-convicted ex-girlfriend, Terri-Lynne McClintic, to a lower-security Indigenous healing lodge in Saskatchewan. "It made me sick to be quite honest", Rodney said while recounting the day he found out, which was nine months after the fact.... He was informed by family that CSC had contacted them looking for him, and that he only learned of the relocation when he called them back in early August. "During that conversation the woman I was speaking to had mentioned Terri-Lynne was in Saskatchewan", Rodney said. "I had to ask, 'Pardon?'. Yeah, Terri-Lynne had been moved and the representative on the phone had brought up McClintic's file that she was moved last December".
The effect of the decision has rippled all the way to Parliament Hill and beyond. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said he has no control over such things but asked CSC [Correctional Services Canada] to review the decision, which it has agreed to do. On Wednesday, Chief Alvin Francis of the Nekaneet First Nation, where the lodge is located, also expressed an inability to control the situation but a concern with it. "It is quite shocking because of the crime", he told reporters.
What Rodney said is even more baffling about McClintic's relocation is that she's been far from a model inmate. In 2012, she pleaded guilty to the assault of a follow inmate at the prison in Kitchener, Ontario where she had previously been serving time.
It is also unclear how McClintic is able to identify as Indigenous. She was given up by her birth mother and a member of her biological family, who spoke to Global News on condition of anonymity, said McClintic's mother never knew who the father of her child was.
Rodney, along with his family and friends, are planning to hold a rally on Parliament Hill to protest the decision on November 2nd. It's unknown if he will get the opportunity to speak to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on or before that day. But Rodney said he has a message for Trudeau: "Just please take a good look at the decision. This could affect any one of your Canadians as well as yourself". Trudeau has children too, he said.
You'd think that Tori's father's appeal to Trudeau, as a father, would have pulled Trudeau's heart strings a little -- especially with him having a daughter the same age as Tori was when she was kidnapped, raped, beaten and killed back in 2009 -- the same year Trudeau's Ella-Grace was born.
Justin Trudeau, like his father Pierre, makes a show about how much he loves his kids. When he was growing up, and his father was prime minister, Justin and his brothers accompanied him all over the world (especially to Communist China). And now he, Justin, takes his children along for the ride too -- on taxpayer's dime (of course). Above are photos of Justin at age 18 in Tiananmen Square, China shortly after the 1989 massacre; with his 8-year-old daughter in China in 2016 and at a Gay Pride parade.
When he got no response from Trudeau -- and no reversal of the child-killer's transfer -- Tori's father wrote an Open Letter to the Prime Minister.
Dear Mr. Trudeau,
"My name is Rodney Stafford, father of kidnapped, raped & murdered 8 year old Victoria Elizabeth Marie Stafford....
From father to father -- Could you kneel before your child's headstone, knowing they spent the last three hours of their life begging and pleading for Mommy or Daddy to come save them. Alone & Scared. Can you sleep soundly knowing there is more injustice unfolding before you? I really have to question our federal government as to why convicted child murderers, such as Terri Lynne McClintic, deserve more rights than their victims and law-abiding Canadians. McClintic is a dangerous predator, who has repeatedly engaged in violent altercations both within society and while incarcerated, boasting of not being able to do more damage! Is this enough to remember that not all issues are political? Some are moral!
I pray for you to do the right thing, which is to ensure this injustice is reversed and a child killer is returned to prison to finish her sentence behind bars!"
Thank you for your time,
Around this same time the Chief of Police of Woodstock (who'd been the lead investigator into the Tori Stafford disappearance nine years ago) denounced the killer's transfer from an Ontario maximum security prison to an Indigenous healing lodge in Saskatchewan. Here's what he said below:
Statement from Woodstock police Chief Bill Renton
Recent events have re-kindled many difficult memories from the Tori Stafford tragedy. As the Chief of the Woodstock Police Service, and the Major Case Manager of the investigation, I feel compelled to speak for our community and for our officers. Watching these events I had hoped that the situation would have been properly rectified....
The human turmoil and pain caused by the actions of McClintic and Rafferty is unprecedented. A beautiful young, innocent girl was taken so unjustly. The pain of her parents, brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, classmates, teachers, volunteers, the local community, the province and the nation is profound. This horrific murder also touched the lives of the over 900 police officers who were involved in the case in some capacity as well as the crown attorneys, professional agencies, the judiciary, court staff and the jurors. The effects of this crime were immense as they strove to ensure that the interests of justice were served....
Tori became our community's daughter. The nature and extent of the crime against her touched everyone involved. We share in the hopes, fears and frustrations of our fellow residents at times like this. As police officers we constantly strive to support the victims of crime and their families. This support does not end at the conclusion of the trial. I believe that I speak for all of our members when I state that the memory of young Tori and her family have our unconditional love and support". We question McClintic's move to the healing centre at such an early stage of her just and proper guilty verdict of first degree murder and sentence of Life Imprisonment with no parole eligibility for 25 years. We also realize the family lives that life sentence every day that beautiful young Tori does not return home. They can hold dear the memories of their beautiful daughter, but they also hold in their hearts and minds the reminder of the heinous manner that Tori spent her last moments on this earth which haunt them continually. Such a reminder that haunts far too many, far too often....
The response from Trudeau to the demand that he right this massive wrong (the details of which bring most people to tears) was a flat-liner. He didn't bat an eye -- and this from a guy who's the laughing stock of the foreign press for constantly bawling his eyes out and apologising "on behalf of all Canadians" for alleged wrongs perpetrated against visible minorities since Europeans arrived on these shores five hundred years ago.
Here's from the London Guardian mocking Canada's cry-baby:
Sorry not sorry: is Canada apologising too much?
For some, it's exasperating turning on the TV to see the prime minister with his beautiful face awash in tears, like a My Little Pony glistening with bathwater. Canada's sorriest prime minister is getting on people's nerves. "What else does he do, besides apologize for things that happened years and years ago?" Conservative MP Marilyn Gladu asked this week.
The news that occasioned Gladu's remark was Trudeau's statement on Tuesday that he would be issuing a formal apology for Canada's refusal to let the MS Saint Louis land in Halifax in 1939. The 907 Jewish men, women and children fleeing Germany had already been turned away by Cuba and the United States. But as an immigration official of the period remarked, when it came to Jews entering Canada, "None is too many". The vessel was turned back to Europe, where 254 of the ship's passengers died in concentration camps.
Trudeau is sorry about Canadian history. He or his ministers have previously apologized for Canada's residential schools, the relocation of Inuit communities, the relocation of the Sayisi Dene in Manitoba, the systematic expulsion of LGBTQ2 workers from the public service, the hanging of six BC Tsilhqot'in chiefs, and for turning away hundreds of Sikh passengers on the Komagata Maru. Even in Canada, where "I'm sorry" is a second national anthem, some wonder if the words are losing their meaning.
Hours after touting 'positive' politics, Trudeau slams 'ambulance-chasing' Conservatives
Tory motion to overturn Tori Stafford's killer's transfer to healing lodge defeated
Barely 24 hours after criticizing "the politics of personal attacks" and vowing to run a positive and inclusive Liberal Party campaign in 2019, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused Conservatives questioning the transfer of convicted child-murderer Terri-Lynne McClintic from prison to a healing lodge of being "ambulance-chasing politicians".... The remark drew howls of derision from Opposition benches. "At least the prime minister can show some kind of emotion", Raitt retorted, "even though it's self-righteous indignation that we would actually question him on an issue that's as important as making sure that convicted killers of children are in appropriate institutions". Raitt concluded, "If he's blind to it, get out of the way and let us go back to government and get this right".
A Tory motion condemning McClintic's transfer was later defeated after both the Liberals and the NDP voted against it. Trudeau left the House of Commons and did not take part in that vote, instead heading directly to reporters waiting outside to criticize Conservatives for dwelling on the matter. "During the course of debate when the Conservatives yet again brought up in terrible detail the tragic case of Tori Stafford and the loss her family has suffered, I referred to them as a group of ambulance-chasing politicians, or accused them of practising ambulance-chasing politics", Trudeau said. "This is unfortunate that the House has gotten to a place where there is such use of terrible tragedies for political gain. It is something that I will always be clear to Canadians that I hope this House is better than. "The Conservatives are terribly upset that I referred to them as practising ambulance-chasing politics. But if they are upset, it's probably because it stings a bit".
Trudeau's remarks were criticized by Tori Stafford's father Rodney, who told Global News that he was in favour of the Conservative motion and that he wished the issue wasn't so politicized. Rodney Stafford took to Facebook last week to implore with Trudeau to ensure that McClintic completes her sentence behind bars. He also wrote a letter to Trudeau. The Prime Minister's Office told Global News that Trudeau responded directly, but Stafford contradicted that claim, saying Wednesday that he hasn't heard from Trudeau.
Here's an excellent write-up describing Trudeau in the House of Commons yesterday voting NO to sending Tori's killer back to prison:
Justin Trudeau stood in the House of Commons and said he would not denounce the special treatment being awarded to child killer Terri-Lynne McClintic. MPs were asked to vote on a Conservative motion denouncing the fact that McClintic has been moved from a secure prison facility to a healing lodge with no fence and with children present. Trudeau couldn't do it. In fact, when the time came for MPs to vote, Trudeau bailed. He didn't stay and stand for the vote, he voted on the bill immediately before this and left, so no record of his cowardice is on file. That said, he did stop for the cameras on the way out of the House of Commons, denouncing the Conservatives as "ambulance chasers" for focusing on this story. If being outraged about a child killer makes me an ambulance chaser, then I and millions of other Canadians will stand guilty as charged. Unlike Trudeau, who wouldn't stand for a vote to denounce this child killer. Instead, an hour before the vote, the prime minister repeated the lines he has been parroting since the story broke. "The offender in question was moved from maximum security to medium security in 2014 under the Conservatives. She remains in medium security today", Trudeau told the House...
So, once again, as he did last week, robotic Trudeau (who can't speak without notes and even then can't complete a sentence without uh-uh-uhing) defended rape and murder -- this time of a child -- whereas usually it's the rape and murder of this nation by the Communist Chinese to whom (as did his father) he's treasonably opened our door wide for their raping our resources and killing our economy and society. The symbolism is hard to ignore.
If ever there was a time for Trudeau to cry and apologise, it's now. He needs to apologise not only to the soul of Tori Stafford and to her family, but to all Canadians. And Trudeau needs to do more than apologise -- he needs to act like a human being, not a puppet, and use the power invested in the position of Prime Minister to protect we the people, and the nation, from enemies foreign and domestic. He can do this by enacting, and enforcing, the laws already on the books for that purpose. Come on Justin, give us a just society -- a true (not Trudeau) one.
All the best,

Misguided coddling of monsters (Canada has a track record), by Roy Green Bay Observer, Oct 8, 2018
...In recent years, Clifford Olson, serial rapist and killer of children in British Columbia was granted leave to torture his victims parents by contacting them directly...and engage them in a civil defamation lawsuit. Olson filed charges against them for having publicly accused him, Olson, of raping and murdering their son. Olson demanded compensation, claiming he had been convicted of murdering 16 year old Daryn and not raping him.... Paul Bernardo, mass rapist and serial killer of teenagers Kristen French, Leslie Mahaffy and Tammi Homolka, fourteen year old sister of his accomplice/wife Karla, retains the right to weekends in the prison conjugal visits trailer where inmates may spend cohabiting time with accredited partners.... Homolka meanwhile, while imprisoned experienced her own McClintic moment. Her accommodations had been upgraded to life in a four person living unit with private rooms for which she had a key, a full kitchen and privileges to order out for pizza for so-called Girls Night In parties.... Kimberly Thompson was five years old when she was snatched from outside her Calgary home by Harold Smeltzer. Smeltzer raped and murdered Kimberly, disposing of her body in a garbage bag. Later Smeltzer would confess to sexually assaulting up to forty young girls. No charges laid. Smeltzer would eventually be granted day parole and living opportunity in a halfway house in Regina. Federal policy forbade Regina police from informing the public of Harold Smeltzer's unsupervised outings within blocks of schools and playgrounds....Terri-Lynne McClintic's transfer to an Aboriginal healing lodge and Tori Stafford's father's anguished plea to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reverse the decision will sadly be another in a series of such occurrences in Canada and doomed to repeat. That is, unless we all commit long term, to an uncompromising demand any conviction of the murder of a child be followed by the remainder of a life spent in prison. No condo units. No healing lodge. No conjugal trailer stays. No enshrined privacy rights. No transfer. No parole. No release. Not ever.
The McClintic case and how justice has changed, by Lorne Gunter, Toronto Sun, Oct 6, 2018
...The transfer of McClintic to Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, violates the system's obligation to show the public that justice is being done. Indeed, the system (including the Trudeau government) has been outright contemptuous of Canadians' desire to see McClintic suffer for the sadism she helped inflict on Tori Stafford. But the other problem with the transfer is the public's. Canadians are mistaken to think that the "prison" McClintic was in was somehow much harsher than the lodge she has been sent to. At her prison in Ontario, McClintic was already living in something called the Pathways unit, a nine-woman cottage for Indigenous offenders....
Protesters infuriated child-killer at healing lodge, by Janani Whitfield, CBC, Oct 5, 2018
Residents of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan have been protesting over the past week against the transfer of Terri-Lynne McClintic to a nearby healing lodge. Steinkey was outraged when she heard that Stafford's killer, Terri-Lynne McClintic, had been transferred to Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge on Nekaneet First Nation, located about 30 kilometres southeast of Maple Creek. "I'm concerned about everybody that lives anywhere near this woman, every person that works out there, every inmate that's out there", she said, adding she also worries for the safety of the children of female inmates who may visit the healing lodge. Williams and Steinkey said they have tried to contact Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale about their concerns, but have only received a form letter in response. "They shipped her off to the farthest, most remote place they could find. And they don't give a damn about us that live here".

Child killer Terri-Lynne McClintic isn't welcome at the healing lodge that sits on Nekaneet First Nation land, band members say. McClintic's transfer from a medium-security prison in Ontario to the Okimaw Ochi Healing Lodge in Saskatchewan has triggered national outrage. And local band members are furious as well that they were not consulted and only recently learned the child killer was nearby. There are no fences at the healing lodge and over the years, there have been a number of escapes.

But he said that if raising the issue in Parliament is what it takes for the transfer to be reversed, he's OK with it. "I don't believe this should be one of our major political issues.

Convicted killer should serve time in prison, by Ian Pattison, Chronicle Journal, Oct 3, 2018
No, Terri-Lynne McClintic. You don't get special dispensation for killing a little girl with a hammer as a grotestque gift to your boyfriend. You don't get to escape maximum security for the relative freedom of an aboriginal healing lodge. At least you shouldn't, but this is the new Canadian reality. Yes, the reserve system is truly a mess. Yes, some aboriginal kids were badly abused. Indeed, your own childhood was beset by troubles. But so was that of countless other offenders who don't enjoy the special privilege that you do now. Sorry, Terri-Lynne, your ancestry doesn't excuse what you did to Tori Stafford. Not even close.... There are cases that simply demand stern justice.... Hence widespread public revulsion this week as details of the case re-emerged, and an uproar in the Commons where Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale agreed to ask Canada's prison commissioner to review the transfer...

Rodney Stafford pens open letter to PM Trudeau, by Kirk Dickinson. Blackburn News, Sep 29, 2018
The father of murdered eight-year-old Tori Stafford has written a letter pleading with the Canadian prime minister to reverse a decision to transfer his daughter's killer from a federal prison to a healing lodge in Saskatchewan. Rodney Stafford posted the open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Facebook Friday evening, urging him "to do the right thing" after Terri-Lynne McClintic was transferred from a medium-security prison in Ontario to the Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge. McClintic, who was 18 years old at the time, was convicted of first-degree murder in the 2009 rape and killing of the eight-year-old Stafford and sentenced to life without parole for 25 years in 2010.... Prime Minister Trudeau said in Parliament this week that Minister of Correctional Services Ralph Goodale has been asked to review the decision that led to McClintic's transfer "to ensure it was taken properly and in accordance with long-standing policy". However, Stafford has asked that the prime minister use his powers to do more.

But it wasn't the specifics of the crime that upset members of Parliament. Rather it was the fact these details were being shared in the House of Commons that made politicians and others watching the debate recoil.

She simply couldn't unsee the months of brutal testimony, especially of Rafferty's former girlfriend Terri-Lynne McClintic who described in graphic detail how the couple lured the Woodstock, Ontario girl into a car on her walk home from school, who Rafferty would eventually rape before the eight-year-old would be repeatedly beaten with a hammer, her body left under a pile of rocks. "My short-term memory was gone. I was angry.
