Report on child-killer McClintic being sent to healing lodge expected soon

A report on the decision to send convicted child-killer Terri-Lynne McClintic to a healing lodge in Saskatchewan may come within the next couple of days.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale asked the commissioner of Correctional Service Canada to review both the transfer and the policies allowing it after a public backlash erupted when news of the transfer became public.

The minister says he expects there will be what he describes as ``significant'' recommendations in the report.

McClintic was convicted of first-degree murder in the 2009 killing of eight-year-old Tori Stafford of Woodstock and the girl's family and the federal Conservatives have been highly critical of her transfer her from a prison facility in Ontario to the healing lodge earlier this year.

McClintic's brother did an interview with Global News and stated McClintic is not aboriginal.

He also said the only reason his sister is in a healing lodge is because she manipulated the corrections system.
