He as acknowledged in court that he killed the women but arguing he is not criminally responsible because of mental illness. The crown has painted a picture as a white supremacist who preyed on his victims at homeless shelters. >>> Brandon traffic is the assistant professor of faculty of law at the university of manitoba and he says that the onus is now on the defence to prove that skibicki wasn't responsible for those actions. He says the crown will be busy poking holes in the argument when the trial resumes. >> I expect they'll be putting tough questions to the experts that are being called by defence I expect it will be interesting. And I expect that we will see the crown end up calling rebuttal evidence in form of expert after the defence essentially calls its evidence. >> Reaction coming in after caa released its list for worst roads of 2024. Brandon's 18th street came in at number one followed by winnipeg's leila avenue. Numerous roads on the list were repeat offenders. It was compiled by votes submitted by thousands of manitobans.

The province tell us that it is moving forward with a plan prioritizing highways that manitobans identified with caa.
