Alberta top court says board was ‘unreasonable’ to rescind freedoms, reinstates Matthew de Grood’s privileges


The province’s top court has overturned the Alberta Review Board’s decision to rescind some of Matthew de Grood’s freedoms and has put into place conditions that would allow his gradual transition into a 24 hour monitored group home, with his doctor’s permission. De Grood was found not criminally responsible (NCR) for killing five people at a house party in 2014 after a judge ruled he was suffering a psychotic break at the time and didn’t understand his actions were morally wrong. Earlier this month, he appealed the Alberta Review Board’s decision to deny further freedoms recommended by the medical team which works with de Grood.
