Sofiane Ghazi was given a life sentence after pleading guilty to second\u002Ddegree murder

During sentencing arguments held July 13, prosecutor Chantal Michaud asked that Ghazi’s period of parole ineligibility be set at 18 years, while defence lawyer Steve Hanafi argued it should be set at 12 years.On July 24, 2017, Ghazi used a meat fork to stab his wife 19 times in the abdomen and on one of her thighs during an argument in their apartment. She was 36 weeks pregnant at the time. The woman, whose name cannot be published due to a court-ordered publication ban, was taken to a hospital.

Ghazi then left the apartment with the only phone the family had, and drove away in the one vehicle available to the couple. A neighbour in the apartment building came to the woman’s aid and called for an ambulance. “The things he said three days before and the location of the 19 wounds — all on the wife’s belly, or close to it, and at least half injuring the fetus — showed that he wanted to prevent the birth of their third child,” Buffoni said. He called Ghazi’s crimes “horrible, fuelled by extreme conjugal violence and a brutality that has no name.

Weak justice system. pathetic

Trudeau’s chosen ones.

How is it that this man is guilty of killing an unborn child, but if it had been done doctor, there’s no crime of killing...in fact the unborn child would not even be considered a human life? Obviously there’s something wrong with the state of the law in Canada

No difference between this and abortion.

A Montreal man named Ghazi? Doesn't sound quite pur laine

Kills an unborn. Gets 15 years. Women kill their unborn constantly and walk free. Clown world.

'Three days before he stabbed his wife (19 times), Ghazi had been granted a release in a case in which he was charged with assaulting her.' This tragic, avoidable butchery should give the judge who released Ghazi pause to reflect on his poor judgement in releasing this monster.

He repeatedly stabbed her 19 times do you know how long that must have took. You would think after a feeling that fork go through her body once would be enough to stop you, this man sick.

Canadian justice.... let crimals go & hang the working man!

This is definitely attempted murder and successfully murder of that full term baby. That’s a bull shit charge and a chance for parole? No lock him up. In solitary. To go crazy. Alone. As he should be. Until death.

He murdered a baby...15 years is not enough..25 years....Is there such a thing as hard labour any more for prisoners or are these facilities all day spas now ? L

He inserted a sharp cutting instrument into her uterus, and killed a child. This is the essence of every abortion. Is the difference in this case that the mother did not consent? Or that he did not have a medical degree?

Should be life in prison with no eligibility for parole.

Our judicial system is a joke

I lack the correct vocabulary to express how revolting this is. The hatred, the misogyny, the darkness of this action is beyond words and beyond reprieve. My heart weeps for the many victims of this brutal, cruel man.

I am sure some judge thinks this is a fair sentence. Incarcerate and if this 'Montreal man' is not a citizen, deport this loser.

15 years is a joke for this crime! Ridiculous

hang em. Au revoir.

Bring back the death penalty
