    I saw Peggy Slipp, a former Probation Officer, on CBC News obviously very upset about the fact that the justice system failed this young woman! Why are the reporters and opposition not jumping on this? Dig deep Dave Cochrane and Andrew Parsons!! The cost of "the bracelet" was very small compared to a human life!

    I don't understand why this story has not been front and center with the media! This poor woman was murdered because there were not enough Probation Officers and RCMP Officers to protect this woman. If Milley had been on the electronic monitor bracelet which the Dunderdale gov't did away with in the budget, this murder would probably not have happened! If I was this young lady's parents, I would ask for an inquiry and sue the dept. of justice.
