Rodney Stafford

Long after Michael Rafferty and Terri Lynn McClintic are forgotten, Canada will remember Rodney Stafford.

The father of Victoria Stafford is not particularly well spoken and yet he has been the most eloquent person the country has seen in a long time.

Everyone involved in the murder trial of little Victoria 'Tori' Stafford, from the police to the lawyers, to the judge and jury, came face to face with an unimaginable evil,

but Rodney Stafford, the man most affected, the man who lost his daughter,

never flinched.

When the details of how Victoria died came out in the trial

her father's words kept us all going,

made us believe that justice would be done.

After the verdict he did not curse Rafferty or McClintic.

He simply declared a victory for Victoria and for all children.

He is a good man.
