Day parole extended for Giant Mine bomber

Convicted Giant Mine bomber Roger Warren has had his day parole extended for another six months.

Warren was convicted of nine counts of second degree murder in the 1992 bombing at Giant Mine. He was granted day parole in June of last year.

The Parole Board of Canada stated in an e-mail that the decision to extend Warren's day parole was made Wednesday.

It stated that decision was made after the parole board reviewed Warren's progress.

The conditions of his day parole include no contact with the victims' families without prior approval and no consumption of alcohol.

Last month the city issued a development permit for Twin Pine Hill where Det'on Cho Corporation plans to build 126 multi-family condo units over the coming years.

The last day to appeal the development permit is July 8.

Earlier this year, the city approved rezoning the area from its hotel and convention centre with commercial space designation to allow the residential development.

The developer said the plan is to start construction this summer.
