Confession in a video

Grantham, 24, pleaded guilty to the murder of his mother, Barbara Waite, in March 2020. The woman was shot in the back of the head while distracted playing the piano at the family home in Squamish. The actor immediately afterwards recorded a video with a GoPro camera in which he confessed to her terrible gesture and showed the woman’s lifeless body: “I shot her,” he says in the images. Later, the 24-year-old bought beer and marijuana and watched Netflix build artisanal Molotvs before covering his mother’s body with a sheet and going to bed, according to his statement to police. The next day he hung a rosary on his mother’s piano and placed lighted candles around her body.

The attack on Prime Minister Trudeau

He then got into the car carrying three guns and 12 bombs, heading for Rideau Cottage, Trudeau’s residence in Ottawa. Grantham later confessed to investigators about his plan to kill the Prime Minister, also writing about it in his diary. As he reached his destination, the actor was touched by the idea of ​​committing a mass shooting on the Lions Gate Bridge or at Simon Fraser University, where he was studying, but then he gave up his crazy intentions and drove to the Department of Vancouver police, where he turned himself in confessing to the murder of his mother.

Repentance

In the months leading up to the insane act, Grantham had fallen into a downward spiral: he spent his days smoking weed and watching violent videos on the deep web while plagued with suicidal thoughts and murderous ideas. Judge Kathleen Ker, who handed down the sentence, explained that the young man seemed genuinely repentant. In June, he apologized for his actions, saying his mother didn’t deserve what she did to her.
