When Vincent Li murdered and then cannibalised 22 year old Tim McLean on a Greyhound Bus heading for Winnipeg, the shock waves ran through Canadian society. But when Li was found unfit to face trial and later released, shock turned to outrage and triggered a social media moral panic. This film looks at the social reaction to Tim McLean’s murder and how it challenged the conventional sociological model of how moral panics are generated.
