Moore, Stevens and Hogan were native. Nichols was white.
"It is difficult to comprehend that an advocacy group such as AIDWYC has decided to turn its back on a clear case of wrongful conviction, especially since AIDWYC's stated primary mandate is to review and support claims of innocence in homicide cases."
Over the years Moore has added racial discrimination to his appeal for justice.
Cab driver Donald Lanthier was robbed and murdered by Gordon Stevens and Terry Hogan in a ravine on Third Line in 1978. Moore, who was not present, but was with Stevens and Hogan earlier in the day, was convicted on the basis of a section of the Criminal Code that said any party to one crime in which another is committed "ought to have known" the probable consequences.
As a convicted murderer, even though he has served his sentence he will be on parole for the rest of his life, which means he has to report to a parole officer at regular intervals and must always ask for permission to travel from his city or town of residence.
The s. 696.1 (1) to which AIDWYC refers is, "An application for ministerial review on the grounds of miscarriage of justice may be made to the Minister of Justice by or on behalf of a person who has been convicted of an offence under an Act of Parliament."
But I believe that an exception should be made in a situation such as that facing Moore or any others still alive who were caught under the law as it stood.

Ironically, the same court had denied Moore's appeal in 1985, his lawyer, Glenn Sandburg, essentially putting forward the same argument.
Since Moore wasn't at the scene, it's hard to comprehend how the court didn't come to the same conclusion in his case.
I agree and I am having trouble with Wahrer's comment that AIDWYC is unable to assist Moore because there is no fresh evidence.
AIDWYC, the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted, had informed him that it was going to review his case.
It had to know this when it opted to review his case as Moore, in his 34 year fight to clear his name, had never made any claim as to having fresh evidence.
