Ok, so, keeping in mind that I don't know a lot about law, this page may not be entirely accurate. My real understanding is that sentencing doesn't happen as soon as the verdict is rendered, there is like, a hearing about it or something.
And yes, "life" in prison in Canada is 15 years and then chance of parole. I'm not going to get into my personal opinion on that, if you would like it, ask.

Also, I don't know if you can have a partial declaration about hate crimes. And I feel terrible that it was a partial, but.. it is redneck Calgary.

For anyone who was expecting a different outcome, you need to realize that, as much as people hate the transgendered and LGB in general, a brutal assault that nearly ends in death, will still be charged. And especially with Bill being stabbed, there was absolutely no possible way Olson could be released. The only real thing up in the air about the trial was if it was a hate crime or not. And even in Calgary, a jury will still, generally, do the right thing.

@ninjaedit: I think Olson Wayne. I can't remember, and I posted this so long ago, you guys would probably know better than I do.

@GreenKrog: Ok, thanks! I was just confused because his name is written both ways in this. "Wayne Olson" in panel 4, "Olson Wayne" in 5, and "Mr Olson" in 6.

@GreenKrog: You were wrong. I did cry. There weren't a lot of tears, but they did show.
