On the third and final day of his June hearing, Grantham delivered a statement in court which reflected on his actions. “It hurts me to think about how badly I’ve wasted my life,” he said at the time. “In the face of something so horrible, saying sorry seems so pointless.

Case and verdict
The crime occurred on March 31, 2020, when Grantham, then 21, shot his mother, Barbara Waite, in the back of her head as she played piano in their home in Squamish, a town in British Columbia about 37 miles south of Whistler, Johnson said. Grantham recorded a video shortly after that in which he confessed to the murder and then left by car, Johnson said. Grantham told the authorities that he initially had planned to kill the prime minister, but changed his mind and at some point decided he would carry out a mass shooting, possibly at Simon Fraser University, where he had been a student. Grantham had rationalized that it was necessary to kill his mother so that she would not have to deal with the fallout of the crimes he had planned to commit, Chris Johnson -Lawyer of Ryan.
‘I think he anticipated what the judge gave him as a sentence,’ Grantham’s lawyer told media. ‘I think he’s pretty apprehensive about the whole thing. He’s a fairly tiny person, and to go to the prison system, I’m sure it’s a daunting and scary thought for him.’
