Calgary Midnapore MP Stephanie Kusie 

de Grood was found not criminally responsible for the April 15, 2014, stabbing deaths of Jordan Segura, Kaitlin Perras, Lawrence Hong, Zackariah Rathwell and Joshua Hunter at an end-of-University-year party in a home on Butler Crescent N.W.

Expert psychiatrists at his trial testified de Grood was driven by psychotic outbreak at the time of the slayings.

Family members of his victims have consistently expressed frustration over concerns about public risk and fairness over provincial review board rulings that have eased de Grood back into the community.

“We have to look at the quantification of risk as well as the probability of risk,” Calgary Centre MP Greg McLean said in supporting Kusie’s motion on Tuesday.
