EDMONTON- The sentencing for an Alberta man convicted in the killing of two Metis hunters has begun today in Edmonton. Anthony Bilodeau was convicted in May of second-degree murder in the death of Maurice Cardinal and manslaughter in the death of Jacob Sansom. Sansom, who was 39, and Cardinal, who was 57, had been moose hunting in March 2020, before they were shot and left on the side of the road near Glendon, Alta., a rural community about 200 kilometres northeast of Edmonton. Bilodeau’s father, Roger Bilodeau, was sentenced in May 2022 to 10 years in prison for manslaughter in both killings. Court has heard that the Roger Bilodeau pursued a truck the two Metis men were driving, because he thought the men tried to steal from his property earlier
