The Ultimate Fear Factor

“We have reason to believe that there is a strong possibility that some of the product from the Pickton farms – and how much the RCMP do not know – may still be sitting in some people’s freezer in the Lower Mainland.”

Yes, that’s right, it’s an all time gross-out. Canada’s Health department is investigating the possibility that accused serial killer, Robert Pickton may have ground some of his victims into pork sausage.

I am shocked – SHOCKED I tell you!

People, please let’s not act so shocked and surprised at U.C.L.A.’s Cadavers For Cash program… It’s America – at $100,000 a corpse, I’m amazed there’s not a commodities market for this sort of thing.

And on that note – the body of actor, Spalding Gray was recovered from New York’s East River. Gray was the monologuist who was once quoted as saying (I’m grossly paraphrasing) “It’s very hard for me not to share everything of my life with everybody”

Perhaps they should consider turning Spalding’s corpse over to U.C.L.A.

Budd’um-pa!

Finally, the news over U.C.L.A. got me thinking about that crematorium scandal in Georgia a few years back… remember that? Where they they just dumped about 300 bodies into a swamp? What ever happened with that? Could someone Google it for me? I’m too tired to look.

Women and the short end of the stick

Troubling news from Amnesty International. According to an article in Montreal’s La Presse, 1 in 3 women are exposed to physical violence in their lifetimes. 1 in 5 will be raped or physically assaulted in their lifetimes. 1 in 100 young girls will not make it past their first birthdays, neglected by their parents.

Footnote: a rousing cheer for me. I’ve been taking french lessons, and for the first time, I read a French newspaper and pretty much understood everything. Can it be that I can finally abandon Montreal Gazette for the superior and comprehensive French alternative, La Presse?

Finally – A Quebec Victims Association

Last week’s Sherbrooke Tribune reported that myself and Pierre Boisvenu are starting a club (Vers une association des victimes – it’s VERY exclusive; someone close to you has to have died to get in).

Ok, so I’ll fess up… I’ve been conspiring with Pierre and some of his friends – Marcel Bolduc and some guys who lost loved ones to the Hells Angels war; if it weren’t for the Angels victims, me, Pierre, and Marcel would call ourselves,

Fathers And Brothers Who Have Lost Family Due To Canada’s Insanely Inadequate Revolving-Door Parole System (FABCIRPS ???)…

But as we are joined by the others, we’ll probably call ourselves something like,

Disgruntled Association of Victims of Quebec who Intend to Kick Ass (DAVQIKA?)

So we’ll work on the name.

Seriously, it was Pierre’s idea to start an association of Quebec victims, that is run by victims and for the benefit of victims, and I am fully behind this idea.

You say, such an organization already exists in Quebec?

No, no, no my friend. Unless you’re referring to the anemic CAVAC (good luck getting them to return your call) or the technology-challenged IVAC (good luck finding a website). Did you hear that IVAC (whose role it is to compensate the families of victims of crime) managed to award Pierre Boisvenu the astronomical sum of $600 for his trouble in the death of his daughter, Julie? 

Now I’m no funeral expert, but I did a little quick research over at www.casketsource.com; this LITERALLY wouldn’t pay the price tag on a cardboard coffin.

Less on the Rohan Wilson Investigation

Remarks made at yesterday’s memorial service for Rohan Wilson, the young black man who died inexplicably while under the custody of the Montreal police (courtesy of John MacFarlane):

“Peter Yeomans is (Montreal’s) public security boss, and he’s not doing anything…”

Recall that Yeomans is the same idiot who recently brayed about the “excellent reputation” of the Montreal police force.

More chestnuts:

“Don’t be fooled, we aren’t going to let this tragedy go unanswered. Enough is enough.”,

“We’re tired of unexplained deaths. We’re tired of being treated like second-class citizens.”:

Minister Darryl Gray.

“The justice minister is doing nothing to reassure the community. This tells me that as a black man, my life is worth nothing.”

“You know, if this had happened to a dog, the SPCA would have acted and somebody would have been arrested already.”:

Johnny Francois, whose brother, Marcellus was shot in the head by Montreal police in 1991 in a case of mistaken identity.
