Under the bill, all murders must have been committed after the bill comes into force, but the murders must not have been committed in the context of the same affair. There may be a first murder, and another may subsequently be committed in a different context. Regardless of whether there is one trial or two, what counts is that all the murders are committed after Bill C-48 comes into effect.
