Michael Bryant Did A TEDx Talk About How Killing My Son Helped His Personal Growth
Bryant says he would not be the man he was meant to be if he hadn’t killed my son, Darcy Allan.

This August will mark the 10th anniversary of the death of my son, Darcy Allan Sheppard, killed on Bloor St. on a summer night by Michael Bryant, then the recently retired attorney general of Ontario.

This Saturday, May 25, will mark the ninth anniversary of the dropping of serious criminal charges against Bryant. He never stood trial.
