    Vancouver — In the late 1990s, as the number of missing women in Vancouver crept higher, Ernie Crey was often approached to speak publicly about the troubling case.

    The more Canadian police dig underneath a pig farm east of Vancouver, British Columbia (search), the more death they unearth.

    CANADA has been witness to several cases of gender-based violence on a mass scale. But today, the country is facing the facts of its worst-ever example of gender-based violence — against women sex workers. The scale of this gender-based violence is all the more horrific because of the extent of public and systemic denial of it, and the fact that it continued unchecked for many years

    Please don't eat when you read this link.

    RCMP asking people to provide them with any pork they bought from the farm. Fearing cross contamination / that bodies may have been added ... (can't finish that sentence)

    What I find most disturbing is that this is the FIRST, it appears, that this was brought up!

    It was one of the things that first crossed my mind, when this case broke.

    The B.C. government has put a mortgage worth $10 million on accused serial killer Robert Pickton's notorious pig farm to cover his publicly funded defence, The Canadian Press has learned.

    But no one at the Attorney General's Ministry will say if that figure represents the estimated cost of Pickton's seven-member legal team in the long and hugely complex case.

    And Robert Pickton's share of the property - his brother and sister are co-owners - is currently worth only a fraction of that amount. It's also saddled with several other mortgages and legal judgments that pre-date the province's mortgage.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Almost four years after he was arrested and charged with what would eventually become 27 counts of first-degree murder, Robert (Willy) Pickton listened without apparent emotion yesterday as his trial date inched closer.

    A voir dire, a legal hearing in which the court makes rulings about the admissibility of evidence, will begin Jan. 30, Mr. Justice James Williams of the British Columbia Supreme Court decided.

    The voir dire is expected to be the last major stage before the start of the full trial, which the province's criminal justice branch of the Ministry of Attorney General is describing as a "mega case" of unprecedented proportions.

    Judge Williams said he was anxious to proceed, but felt the delay would allow the trial to proceed more efficiently once it begins.

    "I don't think that any useful purpose would be served by starting in December," he said.

    "I want . . . the next phase of the trial to commence in January . . . and to proceed in a uniform, steady fashion. . . . By taking that later date we will realize later efficiency."

    B.C. pig farmer pleads not guilty on 27 counts of first-degree murder

    NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — Robert Pickton pleaded not guilty today to 27 counts of first-degree murder in the disappearances of women from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

    The pleas by the 56-year-old Pickton in British Columbia Supreme Court came at the formal start of his trial, which is to be followed by several months of hearings on the admissibility of evidence.

    Pickton, a pig farmer in suburban Port Coquitlam, is charged with killing 27 women, mostly drug-addicted prostitutes from a slum area east of downtown Vancouver. More than 60 women have vanished from the area since the early 1980s.

    Accused serial killer Robert Pickton enters not-guilty pleas in court The 56-year-old man spoke in a strong voice as each count of the indictment against him was read in court, responding "Not guilty" or "Not guilty, your honour," to the charges.

    Pickton remained silent, however, when he was asked how he pleaded on a first-degree murder charge involving a woman known only as Jane Doe. On that charge, the court registered a not-guilty plea on his behalf.

    Jane Doe murder charge dismissed

    The judge preciding over the Robert Pickton voir dire hearing has thrown out one of the murder charges.

    Accused serial killer Robert Pickton will face one less murder charge after a judge ruled he cannot be tried for killing an unidentified Jane Doe. Justice James Williams ruled Thursday the count fails to meet the minimum requirements of the Criminal Code.

    Indepth: Pickton

    The Pickton case is now the largest serial killer investigation in Canadian history (Clifford Olson pleaded guilty in 1982 to killing 11 children in B.C.).
