Let us repatriate Ron Smith

Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper,

I hereby request that the Government of Canada send a letter to, or send a representative to meet the new Governor of Montana, Steve Bullock, asking that Canadian Ron Smith be repatriated to Canada from Montana’s death row.

The story below is an indication of just how careless the American system of justice can be. In the case of Smith, he has not received the benefit of Canada’s proper assistance since he was first arrested, approximately 30 years ago. An interview I conducted with former Judge Michael Keedy, who originally sentenced Smith to death, indicates that Canada has abdicated its responsibility. That interview can be read here.

I thank you for your attention.
Yours truly,
Jack Locke
