Two of Canada’s most notorious serial killers will be getting new addresses in Quebec, according to a report that hints prison overcrowding could soon become a larger issue.
An official source told QMI Agency that Russell Williams was moved from Kingston Penitentiary to Quebec’s Port-Cartier Institution on Tuesday, while Paul Bernardo is expected to make the same move soon.
Williams, an ex-colonel, was sentenced to life in prison in 2010 for the murder and sexual assault of Jessica Lloyd and Marie-France Comeau — committed while he was the base commander at CFB Trenton.
Bernardo, meantime, first arrived at Kingston Penitentiary after he was found guilty in 1995 of murdering two Toronto-area women and raping 14 others.
A spokesperson for Corrections Canada could not confirm details about prison transfers, but it was only a matter of time before the two noted killers were shipped to a new pen.
