An actor from British Columbia was given a life sentence with 14 years of parole ineligibility

Ryan Grantham, a British Columbia actor who admitted to killing his mother Barbara Waite in the second degree, was given a life sentence with 14-year parole ineligibility. Justice Kathleen Ker described the case as tragic and painful while handing the sentence to B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. She said that victim impact statements, particularly from his sister, illustrated the “life-shattering” consequences of the murder.

For second-degree murder, a life sentence is mandatory. The duration of Grantham’s sentence was a topic of discussion during the sentencing hearing. In making his ruling, Ker recalled a number of unsettling circumstances that were made public during Grantham’s sentencing hearing in June of last year. On March 31, 2020, as Waite practiced the piano in their Squamish townhouse, Grantham, then 21, shot her once in the back of the head with a.22 rifle. Grantham recorded a GoPro video shortly after the murder, which was played in court. He admits to the killing and displays his mother’s body in it.

The following morning, he wrapped the body in a sheet, placed lit candles all around it, and hung a rosary from the piano before leaving the house in a car loaded with weapons, ammo, and Molotov cocktails with the intention of traveling to Ottawa, Ontario, in order to assassinate Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He traveled to Hope, British Columbia, where he decided against carrying out a mass shooting at the school where he was enrolled or on the Lions Gate Bridge.

Saving Grace

He drove to the East Vancouver Police Department headquarters later that evening to report himself in. It was a “saving grace,” according to Ker, that Grantham was emotionally and psychologically mature enough to decide from going on a shooting spree. She outlined Grantham’s downward spiral in the months preceding the matricide, which included an increase in cannabis use and dark web viewing of violent content, as well as feelings of loneliness and homicidal and suicidal tendencies.

Grantham’s mental health issues at the time of the murder, according to Ker, were a mitigating factor. She mentioned that Grantham was requesting mental assistance while incarcerated and was getting good feedback on his behavior and development.
