Canadian PM Rejects Olson’s Donationon September 17, 2010 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Earlier, we reported that Clifford Olson, a convicted child serial killer sent his pension cheque to the Canadian Prime Minister. He was clearly doing this to rub the Canadian government’s nose in the fact that he was still receiving the cheques, even after last spring’s uproar.
Today, officials in the Prime Minister’s office rejected the donation, said the Toronto Star. Said Stephen Harper’s director of communications, Dimitri Soudas:
We will not accept one penny from a reprehensible child killer. When Parliament returns, we will proceed quickly with our bill to cancel pensions for murderers like Clifford Olson. In the meantime, if Clifford Olson doesn’t want his pension, then that’s one thing we agree on. He doesn’t deserve this money in the first place and it should go back to the Canadian taxpayers where it belongs.
I’m not sure what Olson does with the money in the penitentiary, but I think he made his point.
