Ryan Grantham Parents
Ryan Grantham is the son of the late Barbara Waite. His estranged father abandoned the family when Grantham was a child. Grantham, who is an experienced shooter and gun owner, shot his 64-year-old mother, Barbara Waite, in the back of her head as she played piano in their Squamish townhouse on March 31, 2020. The following day, he packed his car with guns, ammunition, 12 Molotov cocktails and a map to Rideau Cottage in Ottawa, with the notion of driving there to kill Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, per CBC.
Grantham pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on March 9, 2022, after initially being charged with first-degree murder. Second-degree murder comes with an automatic life sentence. At issue is the length of time before Grantham is eligible to apply for parole. Grantham’s defence is asking for a period of 12 years, while Crown has asked for 17 to 18 years of ineligibility.
The former child actor read out a statement in a clear and emotion-filled voice in B.C. Supreme Court on the third and final day of his sentencing hearing for the second-degree murder of Barbara Waite.
“I cannot explain or justify my actions. I have no excuse,” said Grantham. “It hurts me to think about how badly I’ve wasted my life.”
“In the face of something so horrible, saying sorry seems so pointless. But from every fibre of my being, I am sorry,” he said.
