I will be live tweeting from the virtual parole hearing for Paul #Bernardo @PBC_CLCC. It's set to get underway at 10 am. Only accredited media and accredited observers are invited to attend

There's a bit of a delay. Bernardo is 56 years old now but doesn't look his age. He is looking down and around the room during the silence
