Storyline

Narcissistic Saskatchewan Tory politician Colin Thatcher is engaged in a bitter divorce from his wife Jo-Ann. When a series of court rulings over the divorce go against him, Thatcher decides a more drastic solution is needed - murder! A series of attempts on Jo-Ann's life follow, most of which don't succeed. Finally one does, and the arrogant Thatcher believes he is above the law and immune to prosecution. But his arrogance proves to be his undoing, as Crown Counsel Serge Kujawa builds a case against this psychopathic monster for 1st-degree murder - charging that Thatcher hired someone to kill his wife. The true story of one of the most disturbing stories of murder-for-hire in Canada. Written by medic249a2

Thatcher is guilty of causing Joanne's death
31 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

No matter what you say Colin's pupil's did when you met him...thank god that isn't used by police forces to determine who is lying or not... Colin T CAUSED the death of his ex-wife whether or not he was the shooter or not. End of story. He deserved every day he spent in jail. And if he actually managed to brainwash his weak minded son Greg, into doing the murder, double shame on him. Colin Thatcher is scum, and so are his sons. I don't imagine any of them will ever find peace...after how they treated, and what they did to their loving mother.

This movie was very well acted and Welsh did deserve his Gemini award for his chilling portrayal of CT. How backwards things seem 'way' back in the 80's when politicians could tell a female reporter to 'get back into the kitchen'.
