Bernado will have a chance to plead for his release from prison at a parole hearing that is scheduled tomorrow. The hearing will take place at the Bath Institute where Bernardo is being held and already it's generating a lot of buzz. 

The news that Bernardo is up for parole isn't exactly welcome news for a lot of Canadians, who lived through and vividly remember his case and more importantly his horrific crimes against at least 14 women. You didn't have to be alive then either to know that what he did, raping and murdering young girls, was awful. 

Despite his reputation in the public, many Canadians are not optimistic about Bernado's hearing tomorrow, meaning they actually believe he will be released. 

After hearing the news of his parole hearing tomorrow, Canadians reacting on Twitter expressed their concerns that Bernardo could be back on the streets and a lot of people seem to think it will actually happen. 

Fears of Bernardo's release are linked to the fact that his partner-in-crime and wife at the time, Karla Homolka, is not only already out of prison, but was also found to be volunteering at a Montreal elementary school earlier this year. 

People also think the Canadian justice system is too lenient, in fact, many think he shouldn't have been eligible for parole at all. They blame our so-called relaxed system that has seen other Canadian killers released or moved to low-security facilities recently for Bernardo's potential release.
