Court ruling cuts sentence for Quebec mosque shooter


Canadian court cuts the prison sentence for a man responsible for a deadly shooting at a mosque. Quebec's highest court has declared consecutive life sentences to be unconstitutional. This ruling reduces the sentence given to the man who murdered six people in the Quebec City mosque. A court sentenced convicted shooter Alexandre Bissonnette to life in prison without parole for 40 years. But Thursday's decision by the Quebec Court of Appeal Means Business can now apply for parole after serving 25 years. Andrew Stewart reports. The ruling does not, however, guarantee parole for the shooter.
