Mr. Romeo Phillion
He was the longest-serving inmate to have a murder conviction overturned. He always refused to seek parole, saying it would amount to an admission he had killed Roy.
My second wish is fighting for all of the children's that are taking Away from their parents and put the children's aid accountable for their actions. Again thank you for your support.
In dismissing the $14-million lawsuit, Superior Court Justice Eva Frank found the Ontario Court of Appeal had already weighed in against many of the allegations Romeo Phillion made in his claim.
I am writing you today in support and unrest of Mr. Romeo Phillion, the longest-serving innocent inmate in Canada.
Mr. Romeo Phillion is now in his final years and with a medical condition living under the poverty level.
Mr. Phillion is being refused compensation as of today for the 30+ years he spent imprisoned for a wrongful conviction. Compensation which was dismissed by a judge who said the case was too old for there to be a fair trial. Mr. Phillion is currently appealing that decision
What is your stand that Mr. Phillion be awarded full compensation along with an public apology. What kind of Canada will we be allowing our children to grow into when allowing such massive mistakes to be swept "under the rug".
How much more injustice do we as conscious taxpayers and people do we permit. No compensation REALLY!
I would like for your office to reply to my address within this letter in regards about your stand for Mr. Phillion to receive a immediately compensation or a partial payment of restitution for his medical expenses and for him and his household to be well.
