Lethal Marriage

By Nick Pron


1995—This account of the Bernardo-Homolka murders, written by a Toronto Star reporter, was removed from the St. Catharines (ON) Public Library by the library board.

Objection—The book was said to contain some inaccuracies, and the board received visits from the police morality squad and the mother of one of Bernardo’s victims. It was said that retaining the book in the library would prove too traumatic for the community.

Update—In the fall of 1999, the book was still unavailable in the public libraries of St.Catharines.
