"Charter challenges to the 2011 provisions had previously been denied on the basis that the judge was not forced to increase parole ineligibility for multiple murders, " he wrote in an email to The Canadian Press.
A university student at the time of the shooting, Bissonnette appeared to have been seduced by nationalist and supremacist ideologies into committing this "unjustified and deadly" massacre that sought to "undermine our fundamental societal values", the judge said.
Bissonnette, 29, pleaded guilty previous year to six counts of murder and six counts of attempted murder in relation to the shooting at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre on 29 January 2017.
Bissonnette received a life sentence and can apply for parole after 40 years, but that doesn't mean he's likely to get parole.
Some experts say it highlights the ongoing legal debate over consecutive life sentences in Canada.
According to CBC, the now 29-year-old Bissonnette will serve an automatic life sentence for shooting and killing the men during a prayer at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec on January 29, 2017.
The Crown had recommended that the 29-year-old Bissonnette serve six consecutive sentences totalling 150 years.

Alexandre Bissonnette arrives at the court house in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Hout ruled on a life sentence with the eligibility of parole only after 40 years.
As the 246-page verdict was read over six hours, Bissonnette sat quietly in the courtroom, gazing at his feet while his parents and several friends and family of the victims wiped tears from their eyes.
"He really backed himself up, to use the expression, " he said. He noted that Bissonnette's mental health problems contributed to his actions and judged the danger of him reoffending as "moderate" at most.
Six men were killed and five were seriously injured. The sixth attempted murder charge related to others who were nearby in the mosque.
Consecutive sentences have been applied a handful of times in Canada since the law was amended, including a judge handing down a 75-year prison sentence for a man who pleaded guilty to killing three police officers in 2014. During a sentencing hearing last June, the conversation began to shift to the appropriate way to punish a crime that was, in many ways, unprecedented in Canadian history. "I am not a terrorist, I am not an Islamophobe".
Bissonnette told an investigator that he carried out the attack after seeing reports that the Canadian government would welcome more refugees into the country.
One of the man's victim who was paralyzed in the attack, Aymen Derbali, said that numerous survivors were not pleased with the judge's sentencing.
