Newshawks: Slain officer’s wife tries to explain her loss

The wife of slain RCMP officer Leo Johnston says she was looking forward to a long and beautiful life together with the man she loved — a man fate took from her.

“I’ve just lost the most important part of my life,” Kelly Johnston, surrounded by relatives, told reporters Saturday from Mayerthorpe, Alta.
When Myrol’s mother made a statement on Friday, she made it political.

“Prime Minister Paul Martin, we depend on you and we expect you to change the laws and give the courts real power,” Colleen Myrol from her home in Red Deer, Alta. “Give the power back to the police.”
