Escorted outdoor walks for Vince Li expected to take effect before end of year
Escorted walks for Vince Li are expected to begin in November or December, said officials.
The province said it is continuing to implement a security plan for Li.
He was found not criminally responsible for beheading Tim McLean on a Greyhound bus in 2008. Li has been housed inside the Selkirk Mental Health Centre since a court ruling last year.
In June, the criminal review board agreed with a recommendation from psychiatrists that Li be granted escorted walks outdoors on the grounds of the centre.
Additional security officers have been hired and trained, but there has been a delay in ordering them security gear, which has delayed allowing Li the escorted walks, said officials.
