An Alberta father and his son have been found guilty in the deaths of two Métis hunters who were gunned down on a rural road in March 2020. Anthony Bilodeau was convicted of second-degree murder in Maurice Cardinal's killing, and of manslaughter in the death of Jacob Sansom, who was Cardinal's nephew. Bilodeau's father, Roger, was convicted of two counts of manslaughter.
