As Canadian serial killer Bruce McArthur was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of eight men on Friday, LGBT+ activists questioned whether homophobia and racism may have hampered police investigations into the disappearance of his victims. Landscape gardener McArthur targeted victims linked to Toronto’s Gay Village over a period of seven years, with some arguing that police may have missed chances to catch the killer. “Especially when it comes to race and class and the LGBTQ community there has always been a distance in terms of how police work with the community,” said Haran Vijayanathan, of the Toronto-based Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention group.
