Serial killer Olson denied parole for the third time

Serial killer Clifford Olson was once again denied parole yesterday, in what he promised would be his “last” attempt to gain freedom through Canada’s so-called “faint-hope clause.”

Serial killer Clifford Olson was once again denied parole yesterday, in what he promised would be his “last” attempt to gain freedom through Canada’s so-called “faint-hope clause.”

Convicted of killing 11 Lower Mainland children in 1982, Olson is presently serving a life sentence in a Quebec maximum-security prison, though he became eligible to make parole appeals in 1997 after having served the Criminal Code’s requisite 15 years.

Since then, he has made two unsuccessful bids for early release before federal parole boards, during which he dis-played erratic behaviour but offered no indication of remorse.

People Olson hurt aren’t inclined to believe him when he says he’ll disappear.

“I seriously doubt it,” said Raymond King, whose son, Ray Jr., was murdered. “I would hope this would be his last one. This would be just fine with me.”
