Don't move Bernardo

Re. 'No talk' of Bernardo move (Castanet, Nov. 27)

The question is not can Paul Bernardo be safely housed in a medium-security prison? It is becuase he is still considered a high risk to the safety of the public, what problem is Corrections Canada trying to solve by moving him to a medium-security prison?

If the problem is cost or overcrowding inf maximum-security prisons, then those prisons must be virtually empty for them to stoop to accommodating Bernardo's request.

The Commissioner of Corrections Canada, Anne Kelly, testified to the Commons committee on public safety the move will allow Bernardo more time out of his cell with other prisoners and to take part in more programming.

Given the scale and depravity of his crimes, along with his continued absence of remorse, I personally don't care about his comfort or accommodations.
