Robert Latimer , the Saskatchewan farmer who killed his severely disabled daughter in 1993 by piping exhaust fumes into the cab of his truck is applying for a pardon.
He is asking the federal justice minister to review the case and pardon him.
Tracey Latimer had incurable cerebral palsy and had multiple seizures each day. Robert claimed her continuing treatment forced Tracey to live in “incessant agony.”
Latimer had two trials with the second one ending in him being convicted of Tracey’s death with a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole for at least 10 years.
He was granted day parole in February 2008 and full parole in November 2019.
