Kuldip Singh Samra was convicted of murder in 1982 when he took out a gun and began firing in an Osgoode Hall courtroom after a dispute over an election at a Sikh Temple killing a lawyer and another man and a third victim was left crippled for life.
He was sentenced to 25 years in jail without parole. He has been in jail for 15 years and is now filing under the 'faint hope clause' to try and be released.
His lawyer claims he has changed in 15 years. The proceedings are expected to last about two weeks.
