I noticed yesterday in the Globe that the Ontario Court of Appeal has begun proceedings on the Steven Truscott appeal. I wrote a book report on this case back in grade school and ever since I have been facinated by it. What I didn't realize was that Anne-Marie MacDonald's The Way the Crow Flies is based loosely on the case, will be adding it to my summer reading list. It would definitely be interesting to sit in on the proceedings. The case reminds me a bit of the WM3, minus the crazy red necks. From all that I have read it seems to be that a gross injustice was committed against an innocent 14 year old boy just so they could say they solved the crime.
