Actor Ryan Grantham Sentenced To Life Inprisonment
“I killed my mother.” These words, apparently chilling, rang through the ears of a Vancouver police officer one night after the actor Ryan Grantham turned himself in after killing his mother, Barbara Waite, in cold blood years ago.
He had planned out other equally bloody adventures. But for some reason, he didn’t carry them out. A day after killing his mother, who was at the piano at the time, he’d loaded his vehicle with Molotov cocktails, guns and bullets with a plan to travel to Rideau Cottage in Ottawa to kill Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
He changed his route, though, deciding, instead, to travel to Simon Fraser University, where he attended school, to commit mass murder. But, again, he didn’t go ahead with the plan. Instead, he turned himself in and uttered the chilling words mentioned at the outset, “I killed my mother.”
Of course, the penalty for killing, like that of treason, is not bread. The actor was found guilty of the 2020 murder of his own mother.
Grantham, 24, was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 14 years. He was, however, issued a lifetime firearm ban. Breaching that ban would attract even further sanctions from the court.
