Oxford’s MPP says a public inquiry revolving around murderer Elizabeth Wettlaufer shouldn’t have taken this long. Ernie Hardeman says he’s happy to see the inquiry is taking place, but says he asked for this from the Minister of Health two weeks ago.
Wettlaufer pleaded guilty to killing eight patients in long-term care homes using a fatal injection of insulin. She was sentenced to 25 years in prison with no chance of parole during that time.
Hardeman says he’s spoken to the families of these victims and they deserve answers on how it was possible for these vulnerable seniors to be targeted. The public inquiry was announced by the provincial government after the sentencing was handed down.
