CALGARY- The president of the Alberta Teachers' Association has apologized to the family of a B.C. murder victim and cancelled a scheduled panel discussion with her killer at next week's Calgary City Teachers Convention.

Andrew Evans was found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2007 strangling of Nicole Parisien, who was a sex-trade worker at an illegal massage parlour in Vancouver.

Evans, a former drug counsellor, was given a life sentence but was paroled and moved back to Calgary.

He has been working as a quality assurance co-ordinator with the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre and was to bring a message of ``hope'' during a discussion on addictions at the teachers convention next week.
