Surrey Shooting Victim Identified

The Peacearch News is reporting that "Police have identified the victim of a deadly double shooting Friday night in Surrey. Vancouver’s Randeep Kang, 27, was killed just before 9 p.m. in the 11300-block of Alpen Place, Surrey RCMP say. Two men were found with gunshot wounds. Kang was pronounced dead at the scene and the second victim was taken to hospital. Police say Kang was known to them and was “associated to gang activity.” Investigators believe Kang’s murder was targeted and linked to other gang violence in the Lower Mainland."

Curtis Sliwa in the News

Speaking of Curtis Sliwa, I see that he is in the news again. Catching up on some of the other recent news about Curtis has been quite shocking indeed. I think it would be prudent to address the matter before the trolls do.

The New York Daily News is reporting that "Cops arrested radio talk show host and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa early Tuesday outside Mayor de Blasio’s Upper East Side home."

"Sliwa, 63, appeared at Gracie Mansion on East End Ave. near E. 88th St. at about 8:25 a.m. to serve de Blasio with a lawsuit aimed at getting him off the Working Families Party line and ended up in handcuffs just after 8 a.m. Sliwa’s girlfriend Nancy Regula, 35, said the complaint had to be personally served on the mayor. The lawsuit also targets Public Advocate Letitia James and city Controller Scott Stringer."

For those of us who know Curtis, there is nothing surprising in any of that. Like I said, if you think I'm crazy wait until you meet Curtis. Curtis posted a video of the arrest and refers to himself as the Reform Party Chairman. Now that is interesting. The previous news reports are a bit shocking and require comment for clarification.

The other news reports refer to Mary Sliwa as his ex. That's news to me. I am sorry to hear about the breakdown of that relationship. I never met Mary and I will never trash the mother of his children. I kind of related better to Lisa than Mary. Lisa was a front line street soldier. Mary was an ivory tower businesswoman. Mary did great things financially for the group. She organized galas with the Mayor that raised a lot of money. Evidently times have changed.

We've come full circle. The Rock is back in the hood fighting with the Mayor just like back in the day with former Mayor Ed Koch. Now that's what I'm talking about. It just might be worth another trip out to the Big Apple. I'm sorry to hear abut Fran's passing. She was a wonderful person.

One time Curtis said Mary implied that I was stupid. In all fairness, given the context of the situation she did have a point. Curts came to Vancouver 10 years ago and asked me to come out of retirement to help David Toner restart a chapter of the Guardian Angels in Vancouver. I agreed. I didn't want to do it all myself and was more than willing to help David because he was competent and genuine.

I ended up getting involved in helping a few friends from Telus fight the offshore call centres in their labour dispute. The Union became very political and divided. I took the members on the front line's side. One crazed troll from the Union that sued the members started stalking me.

Curtis called me up one day in a frenzy ranting about her. I shrugged it off and said just ignore her, she's crazy. He agreed but said she went to the National website and is phoning up every chapter leader in the world slandering me. Evidently she was upset when I got fed up with her and told her to f off and get a life. Curtis was livid. He didn't want to have to waste any more time doing damage control talking about it with every chapter leader in the world. I understood his concerns. I did not realize she was doing that. Curtis said the woman was obviously crazy and told me not to even speak with her. He claimed Mary said what is he stupid? Evidently I was.

The other news about Curtis' divorce gets bat sh*t crazy. Everyone says their ex is a liar. The New York Post reported that the court threw out Mary's million dollar law suit against Curtis back in 2014. I am indeed sorry to hear it has come to that. I am gong to step in as the Canadian negotiator and say can't we all just get along?

I knew Curtis 30 years ago. Back then we were rocking the world doing what others said could not be done. I haven't always agreed with everything Curtis has said and done but I have always known Curtis was sincere and genuine as he has with me.

Last year the New York Post reported that Curtis planned to run against the woman he moved in with after his divorce from Mary when that relationship also broke down. Curtis was likely joking about that. I don't see Curtis running for anything that has to do with the Democratic Party.

In 2015 the New York Daily News reported that "Curtis Sliwa has been suspended indefinitely from his gig on NY1 after his lewd rants about City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. The outspoken Guardian Angels leader said “I’m your papi” in reference to Mark-Viverito on the NY1 show last week. After she slammed him on Twitter, he doubled down with a barrage of sexual comments, saying he thought about having sex with her and finds her extraordinarily hot.”

Although that is certainly not something I would say, I think we need to put the comments in perspective to fully understand them. Without trying to be disrespectful, if you take a look at her picture, Curtis was obviously being sarcastic.

Curtis is very outspoken and controversial. I do not believe Curtis hates women. I think Curtis hates having to walk on eggshells when debating anything. Curtis doesn't hold back. He always says it like it is. With all this Harvey Wallbanger news some feel we are becoming a bit over sensitive when it comes to political correctness.

I am not going to minimize the multitude of allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Rape is heinous. I do think that some of those woman hopped into bed with him to advance their careers. Likely many were exploited. That is clearly wrong and is a matter before the courts. Personally, I believe in respectful communication. I believe women should be cherished not belittled or degraded. Yet sometimes we do get carried away with obsessing over political correctness.

Curtis Sliwa is cut from a different cloth and although some of his recent statements make us wonder if he has lost his mind, I will simply point out that there is always a method to his madness. As controversial as he is, he means well and has done things others said could not be done. I'm not a cat guy myself but whatever turns your crank yo. Peace.

Spotlight on Norway

When I used to live in Ireland I had a friend who was from Norway. He had served in the military and said he was born with skis on his feet. Coming from Canada, I respected that.

We don't live in igloos in Canada and run around on dog sleds. Vancouver is quite mild like Seattle. We get lots of rain and if we are lucky, we get a lot of snow in the mountains not the city. We like to hike, bike, run, kayak, sail, ski and snowshoe. We love the outdoors. Most of us.

Norway strikes me as a place I'd like to visit but I can tell you right now if I went all the way to Norway, I wouldn't be spending all my time in the bar. I might stop at a pub for a pint but I would want to see Norway not the inside of a bar. Norway has a lot of amazing hikes.

Norway also has some amazing skiing and snowshoeing. Now that's what I'm talking about. They even have a snow hotel complete with ice beds. That might be a bit extreme for some but the bottom line is that there is lots to see and do there.

Which brings us to the recent news of the Rock Machine in Norway disbanding and joining up with the No Surrender MC. It's none of my business and I'm certainly not going to disrespect any of them especially since Michael has friends in both groups. Personally, I will never wear a patch and I will never call myself a 1%er. Not to say that I would never ride with or be friends with anyone who does. I'm just saying I am different and I prefer to stay that way.

When I reported on the Mongols opening up a chapter in Vancouver, one person commented and said we'll see how long they last. That is fair comment. A lot of these fly by night crews change their colors faster than they change their underwear. The Mongols are a bit different. They are much more established and are huge in California. However, BC is not Cali and whether or not locals here have the fortitude to live up to the Mongols reputation in California has yet to be seen.

When I first started my blog I had two founding premises. The first was that the Hells Angels were a criminal organization. The second was like unto it, that the CIA was also a criminal organization. In the process of time I have amended my first premise. Although I am concerned with organized crime, I am even more concerned with civl liberty. Confronting organized crime while protecting civl liberty goes hand in hand. The US government's attempt to seize the Mongols patch is a real concern for anyone who loves liberty.

I don't like drug dealers. Especially those that exploit the homeless and brutalize sex trade workers. The Hells Angels said, we don't sell drugs. My response is then we dont have a problem. Yet some members do. Now we have a problem.

What consenting adults do behind closed doors is none of my business. The keywords there are consenting adults. Drugs in clubs or for those who want it and can afford it does not concern me. Human trafficking is not consensual. It is brutal exploitation. I have no problem with living the dream. I have a problem with pimping the dream. Using the movement to bully and exploit others. That is not what it's all about. The movie Easy Rider was about living the dream. You dont need a patch on your back to do that. You certainly don't need to sell drugs to do that either.

I don't want to see a war between the Mongols and the Hells Angels any more than I want to see a war between the Rock Machine and the No Surrender MC or the Bandidos. No one does. It's not that I'm afraid of war, it just that I believe war needs to have a purpose. If it's not the right cause, it's just not worth it. In LA the Crips and the Bloods used to fight each other bitterly simply because they each wore a different colour and the rest of us thought it was kind of dumb.

Years ago, in Florida two rival gangs were fighting over the right to sell drugs during a specific time slot on a specific street corner. A little girl was cut in half from automatic weapon cross fire. Curtis Sliwa led a protest march carrying a mock coffin. He wrote the little girl's name on the street corner and the words never again. The Guardian Angels then led the community in a crackdown on crack campaign which was very successful. People had enough of the violence and wanted things to change. Fighting a war over what colour you wear is dumb. Fighting a war over a monopoly on the drug trade is evil. There is no honour in it. The public will not tolerate it.

Rock Machine Norway has Disbanded

This comes as a bit of a shock. TBM Scandinavia is reporting that as of October 26th 2017, the Rock Machine Norway has officially disbanded. ABC Nyheter is confirming the action.

ABC Nyheter reported that members of RM Norway had been charged with drug and weapons offenses as well as a murder. The drug bust was 30 kilos of Hash. Two members have been charged in the murder of someone who was in conflict with the club. It wasn't one of their own.

TBM Scandinavia has addressed the rumours of RM Norway joining up with the No Surrender MC which has now opened up in Norway. TBM's International Spokesperson Michael Green was in Holland this week for the launch of No Surrender MC's new book. Spotlight on Norway.

Elderly shooting at Ontario Hospital

The Canadian Press is reporting that "A place intended for healing became a scene of violence and trauma when two rounds of gunfire erupted in a southern Ontario hospital, killing an elderly married couple and leaving other patients fearing for their lives."

SIU spokesman Jason Gennaro said a 70-year-old man and 76-year-old woman, who were married to each other and lived within an hour of Cobourg, were both admitted to txhe hospital's emergency room late Friday night with unknown ailments. Around 11 p.m., Gennaro said police were called to the scene after receiving reports that shots had been fired in the triage room where both the man and the woman were lying side by side on gurneys.

One patient spoke to other patients who she said told her the man had shot the woman in the head. The Toronto Star is reporting that the police shot the man after he shot his wife in the head at the Northumberland Hills Hospital.

Surrey Mayor Misrepresents the Whole Story

The Save Hawthorne Park Facebook Group shared this letter to Surrey Council from local resident Richard Landale: The article from Mayor Hepner is not only “Missed-Information” it conveys an inaccurate City Master Plan for Hawthorne Rotary Park.

The City gave three readings to Bylaw 19337 on July 24th to remove 6 reserved lots within Hawthorne Park, because under the Community Charter Chapter 26 section 86, the City can only remove reserved property from Parks by Referendum.

To ensure the City’s Master Plan succeeds, the City in its usual Herculean and Draconian manner, set the bar so high that to defeat the City’s Master Plan, some 30,372 Electors must file their objections by 4:00 pm September 22 2017, or by assent (acquiescence) the City can proceed with the Bylaw and their destructive plans for Hawthorne Rotary Park.

Further the Mayor does not mention the Master Plan encompasses the relocation of all the underground services along 104 Avenue through the Wetlands in Hawthorne Park, meaning the destruction of the Wetlands and the source of the Bon Accord Creek.

Further the Mayor does not mention the urgency to push their Master Plan forward, as the relocation of these underground services is because of the LRT between Guildford to Newton runs along 104 Avenue.

Further the Mayor does not mention the millions of dollars the Federal Government is offering to upgrade the Water Mains to the Whalley Reservoir Park (adjourning Hawthorne Park) as part of an overall GVRD Master Plan, these Federal dollars must “be spent” by December 31st 2017.

The Mayor did not discuss the Traffic Volumes projected to swamp the proposed 105 Avenue Connector as it passes through Hawthorne Rotary Park (they have not any volume projections).

The Mayor did not mention the increased Air Pollution these vehicles will impact Hawthorne Park and the immediate residents on the East and West sides of Hawthorne Park.

The Mayor did not mention this Master Plan is in direct conflict with the Official Community Plan Ecosystems and Biodiversity Policies, and the preservation of dedicated and reserved Parks.

I guess the Mayor forgot !

5 people die of overdoses in Abbotsford within 9 hours

CBC is reporting that 5 people died of overdoses in Abbotsford within 9 hours on Friday. "Four died inside apartment buildings and one was found outside a business. They ranged in age from 40 to 67, and all of them died alone." They obviously all bought the same batch of bad drugs.

I hesitate reporting this tragedy because it will obviously be used by the drug dealers and the extremists as a rationalization to open a new lethal injection site in Abbotsford to create more addicts and make drug dealers more money. I post the tragedy to show everyone that we are on the wrong road in BC. We are not dealing with the problem we are promoting it. Human lives are being lost as a result. Every parent knows you don't reward bad behaviour.

When drug dealers sell a bad batch of drugs that kill people you immediately arrest the drug dealers who sold the drugs to get the bad drugs off the street. Especially when they sold the drugs publically right under your nose while you were watching. Failing to do so make you criminally culpable in those murders.

When drug dealers on the Surrey strip put fentanyl in the crack there was a spike in overdoses. As soon as that happened the extremists set up a popup lethal injection site which the city has now made permanent. That is the epitome of evil. It is lawlessness and a complete violation of the Four Pillar Program we originally pledged to support.

Another fatal shooting in Surrey

The Peacearch News is reporting that "One man is dead after a shooting in Surrey Friday evening. RCMP responded to reports of shots fired just before 9 p.m. and found a victim on the 11300-block of Alpen Place. Police received reports of a second victim, he was located and transported to hospital with undetermined injuries. Police said the shooting is believed to be targeted."

"Shortly after the incident, Surrey firefighters were called to a vehicle fire on Wellington Drive and Currie Street." Back to reality. With all this toxic negativity I feel like that Ikea commercial where a little girl cites Louis Armstrong's song It's a wonderful world. There's a lot of bad so there is but there's also a lot of good if you know where to look for it. Mind how ya go.

Sea to Sky Gondola: Mount Habrich

After what seemed like a month of rain, we are finally in the middle of a week of sunshine so I seized the day and took the bike out to Squamish. As I was gassing up for the journey there were several bikes at the gas station. One guy was wearing an Ironworkers MC patch. Seemed like a nice enough guy. They must be like the Teamsters Horsemen. I have no problem with people living the dream. I have a problem with people pimping the dream. Using the movement to exploit others. That's not what it's all about.

So I finally found the right trail up Mount Habrich. You start off going up the Sky Pilot trail then take a left at the junction with the end of marked access sign. From there it is as they said, quite steep. Which is fair enough because you get the elevation gain behind you. Only what goes up must come down and climbing down a steep slope is a bit more challenging than climbing up it.

I made it three quarters of the way up and decided to turn back. I thought not summiting isn't failure, getting lost is. The trail is not very well marked and I didn't want to get lost missing a switchback climbing down the steep slope. If there were more people on the trail it wouldn't have been so bad but nobody else was on the trail at all. I guess the dusting of snow at higher altitudes has everyone getting ready for the winter season. It's going to be an awesome winter.

Riding back in the sunshine along the Sea to Sky highway was another Zen moment. The sun and wind in the face, the mountains and trees everywhere along the inlet was very peaceful. I stopped at Porteau cove to take this shot. It's a nice ride so it is.

Pimpin for the HAs

Speaking of the Hells Angels involvement in the sex trade, in 2009 TVA Nouvelles reported that Martin Émond was arested in a prostition ring that had been running for a decade in Quebec.

In 2009 TVA Nouvelles reported that Martin Émond, 49, from Quebec, who has quietly ran a prostitution network protected by the Hell's Angels for 10 years, was sentenced to eight years imprisonment. The guy doesn't look much like a member of the Hells Angels. He actually looks kinda creepy. It's hard to imagine any service provider would want to work for him.

It brings us back to BC and the Dianne Rock story. We know that the BC Hells Angels used violence to take over and maintain exclusive control of the exotic dance industry here. We also know the Hells Angels have a long history of being involved with the sex trade.

In Germany and Spain the Hells Angels were charged in a large human trafficking ring. Right before Canadian Hells Angels were caught in a huge cocaine bust there.

In 2014 the CBC reported that a woman who "spent four years working in the sex trade before running away. She said she was forced into prostitution by a Hells Angels gang member, and said she was too scared to report the man to police." She was afraid they would harm her family.

Dianne Rock had been off drugs for a long time until her "boyfriend" a longshoreman named Vince McMurchy who sold drugs on the side got her addicted to crack. She was eventually forced into prostitution to pay for the drug near the end of her life just like Janice Shore was. When they could no longer pay their drug debts, they were both killed.

Annette Allan worked outside the Front Room. She was murdered at the Surrey House of Horrors and was dumped in the Fraser River. Teri-Lyn Williams was another sex trade worker in Surrey that was found dead outside Tbarz in 2010.

Shannon Collins who was murdered in Edmonton. Her sister was told she was leaving for Calgary to work for the Hells Angels. However, since she was living what police described as a high risk lifestyle, it appears she had already been working for the boys in Edmonton. Georgina Papin was also originally from Edmonton. Her DNA ended up on the Pickton farm.

Can we see the pattern yet? Forcing women with additions into the sex trade then killing them when they can no longer pay their drug debts. It doesn't get any more sinister than that.

The Mind of a Serial Killer

There has been a lot of talk in the media about this farm outside Salmon Arm where human remains have been found. Police are continuing to search for more bodies given the fact that five women have gone missing in that area recently.

Curtis Wayne Sagmoen, who lives on the farm owned by his parents was arrested last week after an escort was allegedly threatened Aug. 28 with a shotgun near the Sagmoen farm at 2290 Salmon River Rd. The Vancouver Sun is reporting that he is originally from Maple ridge. Big surprise. The land of Piggy's Palace and the Pickton farm. In 2013, there were two assaults against women on a trail near this townhouse.

The bottom line is that Robert Pickton did not act alone. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton farm. That would implicate more than one suspect. When that evidence was submitted in court, the judge gave instructions to the jury stating that they could convict Robert Pickton of the murders even if he didn't act alone. The judge even went so far as to instruct the jury that they could convict Willie even if he wasn't the prime suspect just an active participant. That was astounding.

What's even more astounding is how Wally Oppal shut down the Missing Women's Inquiry after the Hells Angels were mentioned and turned it into a Panel Discussion where he could more easily censor key evidence.

Willie's brother Dave Pickton knew where bodies were buried. He agreed to tell the police where some of the bodies were buried so the police wouldn't dig up the whole farm. There is no way Dave Pickton could have known where bodies were buried without being criminally culpable in those murders. We can thank CSIS for giving Dave Pickton immunity.

In 1999, a woman claimed she was violently assaulted by Dave Pickton in his home. The woman claimed he bound her limbs to the bed using bungee cords and tried to shove pills in her mouth. Sgt. Dan Almas said he was aware of that allegation, and agreed that pills and bungee cords were found in a search of Dave Pickton's bedroom but stated "Someone who is alleged to have committed a serious sexual assault does not a murderer make."

Personal Privilege: A Timetable of Events

Since the subject of serial killers has come up again and since the Pickton Farm was the scene of the most prolific serial killers in Canadian history, I will present a timeline of events so we can all see exactly what I am saying and what I am not saying.

There was absolutely no evidence produced in court during the Pickton trial implicating the Hells Angels. That's because everyone was too scared to testify. There was a great deal of evidence implicating the Hells Angels presented at the Missing Women's Inquiry but Wally Oppal threw it all out and would not let it be admitted.

During Robert Pickton's trial the Vancouver Province ran an article about a woman who was going to testify that she had frequently seen members of the Hells Angels wearing colours at Piggy's Palace. The woman told the Vancouver Province that right before she was suposed to testify in court, "Bikers" showed up at her home so she left town and did not testify.

The Vancouver Province then ran an article quoting someone that played in a band at Piggy's Palace and said members of the Hells Angels were there wearing colours all the time.

Stevie Cameron's book On the Farm states: "But the truth is that almost all the people in the community knew the Palace as a wild party place with drugs and prostitutes. And everyone knew that the bikers who attended usually finished the parties at their own place across from the Pickton farm, a clubhouse that had become infamous as a booze can serving alcohol and drugs to members and friends. By the end of 1996 the neighbourhood became known in criminal circles as a biker area, one controlled by the Hells Angels." (page 137)

The book also states that "Off duty police officers attended the parties and so did city officials." (p 136) "He was worried they were going to get busted at the Palace... But the place was full of cops too, lots of them, all in plainclothes." (p 138) The Missing Women's Inquiry was supposed to hear evidence that off duty police officers attended parties at Piggy's Palace but Wally Opal did not let that evidence ever be admitted.

So let's review the scene. A coworker of mine lived in the area at the time and said they used to have parties on the Pickton Farm all the time. They used to call it the Dominion because that is the name of the street it was on. Everyone who was anyone was there. He also said it was the place to be if you were under age and wanted to drink.

Later two after hours opened up across the street. Dave ran Piggy's Palace. It was dirty. The coworker of mine said the place creeped him out. He said it was full of greasy bikers that would stare at your date if you brought one. A blog reader of mine who used to be loosely affiliated with the club said that Piggy's Palace was dirtier as f*ck. You knew something was going on there that wasn't quite right. He was a big man and still felt uncomfortable there.

Another coworker of mine laughed and said yes he had been to Piggy's Palace. He said it was the cheapest beer in town. It was an after hours bar run by Dave Pickton who was a Hells Angels associate. Another after hours bar just down the street was run by Jessie, Spikes son. It was a lot different than Piggy's Palace. It was a regular after hours. People would go there after Roosters closed down. It was a lot higher end than Piggy's Palace.

Do I think Jessie was gang raping and killing crack hoes on the Pickton Farm? No I do not. His after hours was close by but was totally separate. Do I think patrons at Piggy's Palace were gang raping and killing crack hoes? I most certainly do. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton Farm. That would implicate more than one suspect.

It took me a lot of effort to get a copy of Janice Edwards' testimony at the Pickton Trial. Even thought the publication ban had been lifted they still didn't want to give it to me. After legal action was discussed with the Chief Justice the clerk's office allowed me to have a copy which I posted.

The key element of the Dianne Rock story missing from Janice's testimony in court was that Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton Farm by bikers and by cops. Bob Paulson didn't believe her. He was too busy with "other" things. That is why she left police custody and ended up dead.

I do not believe all Hells Angels were gang raping and murdering crack hoes on the Pickton Farm any more than I believe all police officers were. However, I do believe some Hells Angels and associates were and I do believe some cops were. Not all cops were involved but but some definitely were. It is unfortunate the Missing Women's Inquiry Wally Oppal shut down did not hear which off duty police officers were attending parties at Piggy's Palace. It is even more disappointing that the new Missing Women's Inquiry won't even look at that evidence either.

Cameron Ward is a credible lawyer. He was the champion of Justice during the Missing Woman's Inquiry. He cited witnesses claims that they had seen a picture floating around of retired Coquitlam RCMP officer Jim Brown in a threesome with David Pickton.

Jim Brown filed a court application against Cameron Ward and the whistleblower for defamation. The Coquitlam RCMP then kicked in the whistleblower's door using an illegal search warrant and seized all the whistleblower's hard drives which were conveniently erased before they returned them to him. The Coquitlam RCMP destroyed crucial evidence in a criminal investigation and a civil court case. History has recorded that.

Cameron Ward wouldn't have cited the existence of that picture if he did not think his witnesses were credible. I have never met or spoken with Cameron Ward but I have spoken with two separate credible witnesses who both said they had seen the photo of Jim Brown and Dave Picton in a threeome. That picture did exist before the Coquitlam RCMP deleted it.

When a man kills a woman

This murder at Le Chateau in Lake Louise has caused me some solemn reflection. It's so sad. Lake Louise is a pretty sacred spot. That's where a lot of guys ask their significant other to marry them. Le Chateau is beautiful. I was at Lake Louise for the ice carving festival a few years ago. It was magnificent. Several guys would take a knee and propose publicly.

At first I thought wow, what if they said no? Then I see several kids join in on the celebration and I notice the couple had been living together for some time. They already knew things would work out so it was the unifying of a family. Wonderful. When I first heard the news of a suspicious death at Le Chateau, I thought domestic violence. Who kills themselves at Le Chateau? The hotel is beautiful and it's right on the Lake. It's awesome. No one would kill themselves there.

I know woman can sometimes be petty and jealous when it comes to the breakdown of a relationship but they rarely kill the guy. By far, the stats surrounding domestic violence revolve around the man beating or killing the woman and I just don't get it. I do not comprehend the if I can't have them no one can mentality. It just doesn't make sense.

I was speaking with a coworker about it and he said sometimes it doesn't take much for a guy to go from being really nice to crazy mean. I said I don't get it and he says because you're looking at it from a rational point of view. These guys aren't rational. I look at the couple that recently died at Lake Louise and I feel so sad for both of them especially the woman. A bright beautiful young woman from New Brunswick of all places has her whole life in front of her and it's stolen by a crazed lunatic. Tragic. Yet the guy completely lost it in every way.

So maybe the woman rejected the guy. Maybe the guy had already been through a divorce and couldn't handle the rejection. Why the f*ck kill her? Why? It just makes no sense. Killing yourself over a woman? Really? Why? Sometimes things happen in relationships and you see a side of the other person you never imagined could have existed. That's when you thank your lucky stars you have an exit strategy and move on.

In my old age there's one thing I've learned and that's you can't fit a square peg into round hole. Spending your whole life trying to make it fit is a complete waste of time. The round peg goes in the round hole and the square peg goes in the square hole. Some relationships just aren't meant to be. It's nothing to get mad about.

In this case the guy had a chance to do something posative with his life and he completely blew it. After you kill yourself there is no if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. OK so that relationship didn't work out. What if the right relationship was right around the corner? Now he will never know and he will never find it. Murdering the woman and killing himself has not helped him find peace of mind. It's made him look insane. Sometimes we all make bad choices. That is one choice that's really hard to overcome.

I look at this guy and I think to myself I do not want to go out like that. It's Linkin Park dejavu. In the song Numb which he remixed with Jay Z it says "all I want to do is be more like me and be less like you." Indeed yet tragically Chester Bennington from Linkin Park committed suicide last July but he didn't take anyone with him. People get discouraged and give up. I get that but why steal someone else's life away from them in the process? That I just don't understand.

If you get all mad about the breakdown of a relationship and you're thinking of doing something crazy out of despair, from bro to bro ya just gotta let it go. That is not the path to peace and enlightenment. It won't make you happy so it's totally pointless. Tomorrow is another day. Shake it off and take the other route. No matter how dark life gets there are always more than one option. There's never no way out of anything. Think it through. Some choices just aren't worth it.

Taxpayers should stand up for SkyTrain, not LRT, in Surrey

The Vancouver Province printed yet another letter oposing the LRT in Surrey:

"The federal and provincial governments have each committed $2.2 billion to start addressing the worsening traffic problems and gridlock in the Lower Mainland. Surrey’s proposed at-grade light rail transit does nothing to address this. It is more to satisfy Surrey’s development and vision for itself than to address Metro Vancouver traffic congestion. At an open TransLink board meeting, I asked about the cost of Surrey’s LRT plan and suggested it could be as high as $1 billion. I was not given an answer so I assume that my estimate isn’t out of line." (It actually $2.5 billion)

"I firmly believe that the vast majority of people in Surrey and Langley want SkyTrain, not LRT. People should contact their MPs, MLAs and Surrey council and tell them to spend the money on a proper transportation plan and not just dole out money to satisfy Surrey’s vision of itself."

Alf Madsen, Surrey (Someone who lives here)

We are consistently seeing corporate propaganda trying to brainwash us into beleive spending $2.5 billion tax dollars to create gridlock and pandemonium along 104th Avenue is a good thing while resident after resident writes in and explained why it is not.

Woman's body discovered in Moncton, NB

CBC is reporting that "The body of a woman was found Monday morning in a wooded area just off Wheeler Boulevard in Moncton, RCMP have confirmed."

Suspicious deaths in Chateau Lake Louise - Update

The Calgary Herald is reporting that "The RCMP major crimes unit is investigating after the body of a woman was found in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise" on Sunday. That's really sad. The Chateau on Lake Louise is beautiful.

"CBC is reporting that "A well-known Saint John, N.B., couple who were visiting Alberta are dead. Dentist Cindy McCormick was attending a dental convention in Lake Louise. Her romantic partner, Robert (Bobby) Kaine, a firefighter and hockey player, also went to Alberta to visit his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren."

"Investigators from the major crimes unit have collected sufficient evidence to determine the woman's death is related to the death of a 52-year-old New Brunswick man whose body was found in a vehicle west of Lake Louise on the same day, Cpl. Curtis Peters said in a statement Tuesday night. The identity of the man, whose death has been classified as non-criminal in nature, has not been released." Very sad. I just dont get it.

Fatal shooting in South Surrey

Global is reporting that a man and a woman were shot at King George Boulevard and Crescent Road in south Surrey 2:10 a.m. this morning. The man has died and the woman remains in serious condition.

"The victims were found at two locations – the man was found at 36A Avenue and Elgin Road and the woman was found in a vehicle at the King George Boulevard and Crescent Road location. Police say they believe the man and the woman were shot in the same location, in the area of 36A Avenue and Elgin Road ,and then they dispersed. The female victim had driven herself a short distance away from the scene and then called 911."

"About an hour after the shooting, a car was found on fire in the 8500-block of 204 Street in Langley. The vehicle had no licence plates and the owner has not been found."

Update: IHIT says 28-year-old Nicholas Khabra of Surrey was killed Monday

Donald Trump to release Kennedy assassination files - Update

Well this is one good thing Donald Trump is doing. The Toronto Star is reporting that "President tweets intention to disclose documents by Oct. 26 deadline, although CIA said to be lobbying against move despite belief they do not contain any bombshells."

Perhaps the documents will be so blacked out there won't be anything left in them. Operation Northwoods was a declassified document that was very real and provided a motive for the Kennedy assassination. As we know, every crime has a means and a motive.

As far as means, the videotaped evidence shows the president's body guard ordered to pull back. The runner who's job is to protect the president and act as a human shield in the event of a sniper, is ordered to pull back and questions the order by raising his arms in confusion as to why. Shortly after that the president was shot dead. That provides the means.

It's interesting to hear the mainstream media minimize the release of the assassination files as catnip for conspiracy theorist. The mainstream media claims that conspiracy theorists reject the official version about Lee Harvey Oswald and blame Cuba, Russia, the CIA or even UFO's for Kennedy's assassination. That's a rather bizarre smoke screen.

The assassination of JFK is not a conspiracy theory. It is a historical fact. It really did happen. We just don't know why. We don't know Lee Harvey Oswald's motive. Nobody is claiming UFO's killed JFK. As for Cuba and Russia, why would they want Kennedy dead? Kennedy vetoed Operation Northwoods. Cuba and Russia would want Kennedy in office as opposed to someone else who would not veto Operation Northwoods. Cuba and Russia had no motive to assassinate JFK. The only ones that had a motive to kill him were the CIA for vetoing Operation Northwoods.

The evidence supports that motive. The CIA are the only ones that had the power to order the president's body guard to pull back right before he was shot.

When Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested he said he was innocent. He said he was a patsy which means scapegoat. Lee Harvey Oswald had a long history working for the CIA. It would be pretty easy for them to set him up. The fact that he was shot dead before he was able to stand trial prevented him from revealing CIA secrets in court and prove his innocence.

Operation Northwoods was a plan presented by Allen Dulles, the Director of the CIA and signed off by the Lyman L. Lemnitzer who was the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They wanted to perform terrorist acts on American soil and blame Cuba to justify an invasion during the Cuban missile crisis. Kennedy vetoed it. If he hadn't had vetoed it, they would have implemented that treasonist plot.

After Kennedy was assassinated. President Johnson took over and actually implemented Operation Northwoods in the form of an attack on the USS Liberty. That is a historical fact.

Like I said from the beginning, the CIA s a criminal organization. Even more so than the Hells Angels. If they are gong to lie to us about generations of drug trafficking, there is not limit to what they will lie to us about. CIA Drug Trafficking Whistleblower Spreadsheet.

Donald Trump Chokes:

The Canadian Press is reporting that "President Donald Trump is delaying the release of some files on the John Kennedy assassination that were due to come out Thursday. He's approved 2,800 other records for release. White House officials say Trump will state in a coming memo that he had "no choice" but to keep others secret because of national security concerns."

"He's having those records further reviewed for the next six months. Officials say Trump will impress upon federal agencies that JFK files should stay secret after the six-month review only in the rarest cases."

Trump releases some, but not all, JFK assassination records

2,800 JFK assassination files released

Forbes is reporting that "Most of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection, which is currently stored at the National Archives, has been released previously. Under 1992’s JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, Congress had approved the declassification of the remainder of these documents by October 27, 2017—unless the sitting president authorized further withholding of files."

Here's where you can download the JFK files

Five Red Herrings in the new files. They have absolutely nothing to do with the truth and are absolute smoke and mirror distractions. C'est la vie. MSM sucks.

Mongols MC in Vancouver?

Well this is news to me. A blog reader said to check out the Mongols website. They have Vancouver listed under chapters. I've heard rumours about that a while ago but nothing official. Lets hope they come to Surrey. I don't like crack dealers but anything would be better than those b*tch ass Surrey Girls. The closest those clowns will ever come to valour is on Xbox.

Jesse Ventura Rocks. The Mongols are huge in California. The United States government has no right to seize their patch. Police chase gang members but ignore drug trafficking.

Shots fired in Langley

The Langley Times is reporting that "Police were called to the scene of a reported shooting in a quiet neighbourhood of new houses near 211 Street and 79A Avenue in Langley early Sunday morning just before 4 a.m. RCMP could be observed in front of a taped-off front yard taking photos of what appeared to be shell casing markers. According to one online comment the shooting caused property damage but no injuries."

Human remains at farm outside Salmon Arm

Castanet is reporting that "After three days of extensively searching a rural property in the North Okanagan, police have confirmed they have found human remains. On Thursday, dozens of officers swarmed the farm at 2290 Salmon River Road, northeast of Falkland, and they've continued the search into the weekend. 'During the course of executing a search warrant at a property in the 2200 block of Salmon River Road, human remains have been located,' Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said Saturday in a statement."

"On Oct. 13, police put out a warning to the public about an incident on Aug. 28, where a 36-year-old man allegedly arranged a meet-up with a prostitute in the Salmon River Road area, and threatened her with a gun, before she escaped. Police arrested the man at the time, but he was later released without charges."

"A Canada411 search of the rural property where the human remains were found turns up Wayne Sagmoen. A Curtis Wayne Sagmoen, born in 1980, has been recently charged with six charges stemming from an Aug. 27 incident near Falkland, including intentionally discharging a firearm and uttering threats. A warrant was issued for Sagmoen's arrest on Oct. 17, and he was arrested the following day."

Global is reporting that "Last Friday, police issued a warning related to Salmon River Road after a woman was allegedly threatened with a firearm earlier this year. Police said a man and woman used a “website utilized by escorts and sex workers” to arrange a meeting in the area of Salmon River Road. Neighbour Ryan McDonald said police have been to the area multiple times since August, when his wife heard a gunshot on the property."

The property is north of Vernon outside Salmon Arm. Police are still searching for more bodies.

Kelowna Orchard body identified: Castanet is reporting that the identity of the woman's body found in a Kelowna orchard last week is Russia Nicholson who locals remmber as a nice girl who had her struggles but was a very good person.

Human remains found south of Strathmore, Alberta.

Beijing Smog

This is what Surrey's increased coal exports are doing for China's air quality. Natural gas is clean burning. Coal is not. Beijing Vows Deep Cut in Coal Use in 2017 to Fight Smog.

Atlantic Salmon caught in Harrison river

The Agassiz-Harrison Observer is reporting that local sports fisherman Don Temple caught an Atlantic Salmon in the Harrison River on Oct. 8. This is not the first time this has happened. September of this year the Abbotsford News reported that "At least three Atlantic salmon showed up in aboriginal fishing nets along the Fraser River - including one near Chilliwack."

August of this year CTV reported that "More than a week after a fish farm collapsed south of the border, there are now reports that the escaped Atlantic salmon are being found in B.C. waters." The reason this is concerning is because Atlantic Salmon swim up the rivers and eat the BC salmon fry. That is why our spawning salmon numbers are down in BC but up in Alaska.

When you buy Atlantic farmed salmon you aren't supporting a Canadian fish farm in Nova Scotia. You are supporting one on the west coast and the destruction of our native salmon stocks. Don't buy farmed salmon. Buy wild local salmon. We need to think sustainability. That is good business.

Protecting the integrity of the Media

There was an interesting editorial in the Vancouver Province talking about the freedom of the press. It was criticizing the Trudeau government for not doing more to protect local media. It's kind of a catch 22. Everybody wants a free handout. It's not the government's responsibility to create jobs just create an environment where business can prosper. Likewise it's not the government's job to fund the media. Yet without funding the media is often doomed to the special interest of corporate advertising. All these corporate mergers has shown us how local media has become one great big clone show. When all the local media is owned by one entity, it becomes easier to control.

I agree the freedom of the press is a sacred principle. Postmedia news is reporting profits are up but at what cost? With one sweep of the pen they eliminated the Surrey Leader and all the jobs of those credible reporters. The Surrey Now Leader has become just another corporate spin doctor for insider trading and fiscal irresponsibility just like the Vancouver Province has. The Surrey Leader and the Vancouver Province used to be the last frontier for an alternative to corporate propaganda. Now they have merged with the others in the great big clone show spamming the public with nonsense. There is no freedom of the press in Western Canada. Corporate monopolies killed it. Yet I don't think it's the government's job to fix it.

The First Amendment of the US Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." The government's only responsibility is to not make a law that restricts the freedom of the press. Preserving the integrity of the press is up to the free market and to supply and demand. If the media prints trash, the people won't read it.

The solution lies within the free market. If all the local media outlets merge into one big propaganda clone show, then private independent media outlets are free to rise up and fill the void. Rebel Media started to but then went weird. It just shows how difficult it is to create and preserve independent media.

Rebel media started off as an independent voice for Conservatives. It was great. I saw them at a Falun Gong demonstration. They were reporting on the atrocities of the Communist Government in China when no one else would. Then I read people trashing them so I had a look to see what was up. Seemingly they had a split over difference of opinion. The owner, Ezra Levant, started ranting about anti Semitism and extremism so co-founder Brian Lilley left as well as several others. Fair enough but there's nothing stopping Brian Lilley or anyone else from starting up their own outlet that is more balanced. Supply and demand yo. We know there is a demand for it. All we need is a like minded capitalist to fill the void. I use the term capitalist tongue and cheek.

I'm not talking about corporate monopolies. That's Communism. I'm talking about small business and free enterprise which is the backbone of the free market. We need a Ron Paul not a Richard Spence. We need a Preston Manning not a Brian Mulroney. When the Reform party merged with the very entity they were created to correct, the dream died. Yet there is nothing stopping anyone from picking up the torch and fulfilling the dream. That is the reality of the free market.

However, the CBC is independent and still does investigative journalism.

Salvatore Scoppa in the news

Salvatore Scoppa in the news. His name came up when his co accused William Robinson originally from Victoria was found dead in Montreal June 2013. Turns out last February Salvatore was shot himself but survived. March of this year Salvatore was tied to a fraudulent telemarketing scheme that bilked millions of dollars from the elderly in the U.S. and in Canada.

Two weeks before Scoppa was shot he and his brother Andrew were busted with over 100 kilos of cocaine. Seemingly one of Salvatore's dealers flipped and he is being investigated for a double murder. No doubt he is also the prime suspect in Will's murder as well.

Interesting wiretap evidence produced in court.

Woman’s body found following dumpster fire in Langley

Global is reporting that "RCMP were called to the area of 20150 Langley Bypass just before 6 a.m. Friday. In the process of extinguishing the fire, firefighters discovered the body of a woman. Langley RCMP Serious Crime unit has taken over the investigation." CBC is reporting that it happened in a business area so the police are combing through surveillance videos.

10th Anniversary of the Surrey Six Murder

Eileen Mohan Tweeted "10 years ago today my Son, Chris was alive and beautiful till evil took his innocent life..I miss him so much." Her son was one of the two innocent victims in the Surrey Six murder which was a complete game changer for everyone involved and everyone in this community. CBC ran an editorial about it today as did the Peacearch News.

It all started for me February 3rd 2008 when I attended an anti gang violence rally at Bear Creek Park where they released doves in memory of loved ones lost to gang violence. I heard Eileen Mohan speak and it broke my heart. She made a public plea for a website to identify known gang members. She said they had no idea they were living beside gang members. She said if they had known, her son would still be alive today. Her grief moved me.

I knew there would be legal challenges. I knew there'd be threats. Knowing my background with the Guardian Angles during the US crack epidemic and my experience defending free speech in the courts, I knew that would be something I could do. So I did. The rest is history.

In this murder two innocent witnesses were not just stuck by stray bullets, they were intentionally executed simply for being witnesses. That outrageous act changed everything. Everyone and their dog flipped on them and no one calls them rats for testifying. The ones who committed that heinous act are the rats not the ones who testified against them.

October 2nd 2014 there were two convictions in the Surrey Six Murder. A copy of the court decision was posted online. They were sentenced December 2014.

Since one of the police investigators had an affair with one of the witnesses, Jamie Bacon's trial was separated from the others. Jamie Bacon was the one that organized the hit. He tried to tax Corey Lal on behalf of the Hells Angels and Cory said no. Jamie's brother Jonathan was close friends with Larry Amero for many years. Before the Surrey Six the Red Scorpions worked for the UN. After the Surrey Six they started working for the Hells Angels. It's that simple.

Eileen Mohan is a remarkable person. Although she was the one that inspired my blog and website, she obviously doesn't agree with my politics. I respect that. Yet most people realize my aggressiveness is driven by my sincerity. I do care and I have seen Curtis Sliwa do what others said couldn't be done on a daily basis. Eileen has taken the higher road.

Eileen Mohan held a memorial mass for her son May 31 2008 where numerous politicians attended and spoke. May 26, 2012 Eileen organized a memorial forum at Queen Elizabeth Secondary where Kim Bolan spoke. July 24th 2014 Eileen contracted Katy Hutchison to speak at the Sheraton in Surrey. That was profound. I still wish we had Eileen Mohan for Mayor in Surrey instead of Linda Hepner. Eileen Mohan can't be bought.

Surrey Now Leader: Eileen Mohan, a remarkable lady

Ontario Outlaws arrested in foiled murder plot

The London Free Press is reporting that "A London man police say is a member of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club is charged in a murder plot, the third member of the biker club’s London chapter to be arrested in less than two weeks."

"Ryan Mark Daigneault, 41, of London, is charged with counselling to commit murder. Nobody was injured, said police, who confirmed Daigneault’s membership in the Outlaws’ London chapter. Daniel Traquair, 30, of London, is charged with possession of a restricted firearm and another weapons offence."

The Toronto Sun is reporting that "The Outlaws, a biker club with chapters across the world, opened a London clubhouse on Brydges Street in May. The club had previously kept a low profile in the city following the demolition of its Egerton Street clubhouse in 2009. But the bikers left their clubhouse shortly after The Free Press published an article on its opening, the woman who owns the building said." This is obviously proactive targeting of the Outlaws MC.

Ontario still has a Biker Enforcement Unit. BC got rid of theirs after the David Giles and Johnny Newcome bust in Kelowna. The Outlaws MC don't exist in BC. Although the Outlaws are well respected, here it's all Red and White. The Hells Angels get police protection in BC now.

14 year-old girl dies from overdose in Surrey

The Peacearch News is reporting that "A 14-year-old girl has died following a drug overdose in Surrey. Surrey RCMP responded to a call on Thursday, Oct. 5th at 8:50 a.m. regarding a 14-year-old girl in distress. They went to the 13300 block of 103A Avenue to attend to the girl, who was then taken to hospital. She was later pronounced shortly after her arrival."

Now we are forced to question Linda Hepner and the Surrey RCMP's criminal culpability in allowing drug dealers to sell fentanyl on the Surrey strip. You really dont think anyone who buys drugs on the Surey strip isn't going to give it to minors? You really think you are absolved of criminal culpability when you turn a blind eye to the drug dealers on the Surrey strip in the name of Harm Promotion? What do you think they were doing with that 14 year old girl?

Maybe we should ask Ryan since he was convicted of drug trafficking in Surrey. Since the drug dealers on the Surrey strip are the pimps what does that make Ryan? Please advise.

Canada: human trafficking and explotation is 3rd profit maker for organized crime.

Former Hells Angel shot dead in Toronto

Global is reporting that "Police are investigating after a 43-year-old Toronto man was gunned down at a North York plaza Saturday evening. The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead on scene. He has been identified by police as James Clayton Holland. Holland has been identified as one of the owners of a pot dispensary located on the second level of the plaza. Sources tell Global News he had just locked up the shop for the night, before he was fatally shot."

Kim Bolan is reporting that the victim was a former member of the BC Hells Angels who continued to make money after he was kicked out of the club. Once again L & R has nothing to do with it. It's all about maintaining a monopoly on the drug trade.

James Holland was the secretary of a company called GJP Holdings Ltd., which was headed by Gino, Brandy's Ex and was disolved in 2007. With friends like that, who needs enemies?

Malta car bomb kills Panama Papers journalist

The Guardian is reporting that "The journalist who led the Panama Papers investigation into corruption in Malta was killed on Monday in a car bomb near her home. Daphne Caruana Galizia died on Monday afternoon when her car, a Peugeot 108, was destroyed by a powerful explosive device which blew the car into several pieces and threw the debris into a nearby field."

"A blogger whose posts often attracted more readers than the combined circulation of the country’s newspapers, Galizia was recently described by the Politico website as a 'one-woman WikiLeaks'. Her blogs were a thorn in the side of both the establishment and underworld figures that hold sway in Europe’s smallest member state."

CBC News was a Canadian partner in the release of the Panama Papers

42 kilos of carfentanil seized from Pickering home

City News is reporting that "Lab results from Health Canada have confirmed that a substance seized from a Pickering home last month was the deadly opioid carfentanil. Durham regional police said they seized 53 kilograms of unknown substances from a residence on Liatris Drive on September 30 with 42 kilograms later confirmed to be carfentanil – a synthetic opioid 100 times stronger than fentanyl." Carfentanil is nasty.

A space to shoot up, but no space for addiction treatment

CBC is reporting that "Little of Ontario government's opioid crisis money has gone to addiction treatment in Ottawa. The Ontario government announced $222 million over three years in new spending to help communities' treatment and harm reduction strategies as a response to the opioid crisis. So far in Ottawa, close to $2 million has been spent on harm reduction strategies to stem the alarming tide of overdoses. The money has been used to supply naloxone and training for first responders, as well as opening up supervised injection sites. As for actual treatment, to date, $265,000 has been spent to hire a couple of counsellors, a nurse and a nurse practitioner for community-based services. No new treatment beds are expected to open."

That is the root of the problem. "Harm Reduction" has become Harm Promotion. They adapted the Four Pillars program and threw away the other four pillars. All we're doing now is supporting organized crime with tax dollars. We might as well cut the Hells Angels and the Pharmaceutical companies a cheque. It would save human beings a colossal amount of misery.

Treatment saved Kati. Lethal injection sites and Harm Promotion did not.

American Hells Angel arrested for burglary

Wate dot com is reporting that "Brian Zielinski, an American member of the Hells Angels who goes by the name Jack Sparrow was arrested for burglary while dressed as a pirate. Me thinks he could use a drug test so he could. I guess the club isn't as well connected in the Sates as they are in Canada. Ya gotta love Captian Jack though.

The New York Daily News is reporting that "Zielinski was staying at a friend's house and started acting crazy when he was kicked out. The captain reportedly refused to leave the house and crawled back inside the building through a downstairs window. Once Zielinski was back inside the house, he allegedly became combative and Dunlap police said they were forced to tase him before arresting him." He must have mistook the residence for the Black Pearl.
