The family of a murdered 8-year-old Ontario girl says they were blinded again this week when they learned that one of their killers were moving to a middle-security prison.

Michael Raferti, who spent his life in the prison in 2012 for abduction, rioting, torturing and murdering Victoria (Tori) Stafford in 2009, was transferred from a maximum security facility in Port-Cartier, Que., More than 900 kilometers south To a Middle Sector institution in La Macaza nearly nine months ago, according to documents obtained by CTV News.

"This means that all the time in the last three months, the Corrections Service Canada and our Canadian government have healed the fact that not one, but the people who are responsible for stealing the lives of Victoria are working their way to luxury," wrote Torrey Father Rodney in an emotional Facebook post in a closed group.

The information comes only weeks after the family and their supporters protested the transfer of Tori's other killer, Terry-Linn Maklintik, to an indigenous healing lodge. After widespread scandal, McLintic was transferred out of the lodge and to a resource-security facility in November.

In the House of Commons Monday, Conservative House Leader Candice Bergen directed concerns about the killer transfers to Public Security Minister Ralf Goodal.

"I will test the facts of the case to ensure that all the right rules and procedures are followed and that the Canadians are safe," Goodale responded.

In his Facebook post, Stefford continued with a plan to "Canadian universe" to help: "Our children and lost loved ones deserve to earn justice and security in our country, I'm so ashamed to be Canadian right now," he wrote.
