Michael Knott did not deserve to die. Trevor Brewster did not deserve to die. Their family and friends should have more than memories today.
That said, Justice Kevin Coady was right Friday to declare Glen Race, the man who murdered both men, not criminally responsible for their 2007 deaths.
Three psychiatrists testified. Two were hired by the defence, one by the prosecution.
