The man who beheaded a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba has won the right to have escorted walks.
The Criminal Code Review Board of Manitoba has approved a plan to let Vince Li walk around the grounds of the Selkirk Mental Health Centre as long as he is escorted by two staff members.
Li has been in a locked portion of the centre since he was found not criminally responsible for the killing of Tim McLean in July, 2008.
The idea of allowing him outside walks has stirred up controversy, because the hospital grounds are not fenced in.
Manitoba's Opposition Progressive Conservatives want Li shipped out of the province to a more secure hospital.
