The Daily Mirror story about Schmegelsky Sr. is just so disturbing and sad. I have no words.
@MassGuy "In the early 1980s, about 2,000 Canadians were infected with HIV from tainted blood products. ... Although AIDS was first reported in Canada on March 27, 1982, it took three years for the Canadian Red Cross Society, which administered the nation's blood donation system, to start screening for HIV." As a result in Canada the Red Cross no longer has the authority to accept blood donations. Those affected were compensated by govt. It was a huge serious 'scandal' many people who received blood transfusions for surgeries and other reasons got HIV from the tainted blood.
It is the most widely read on-line newspaper in the world
I think they went to whitehorse first?
@MassGuy as is customary, are you going to buy the book and do a full report for us
Haaaa. He drunk wrote it, so I’ll have to drunk read it.
Atleast it’ll make some sense then.
Cliff notes please
Personally, I don't think they ever made it to Whitehorse, JMO. I'm trying to figure out if that story was even true. Does anyone know if they made it to Whitehorse? IIRC, they told grandma they went (could be a lie) but did they physically go? I haven't paid much attention to routes/times so I could be way off.
When will you be posting your book on Amazon?
I'm gonna write a book with all the WS posts that I have made, that got me a TO......moo
Got it, Canda is BIG. But the question about the helicopter was a good one? No helicopters in the North to go check out a murder scene of 2 foreign nationals?
George R. R. Martin had to split up one of his "Game of Thrones" books because it was too big. How many volumes will your book be?
IF they did go to Whitehorse it's 29hrs from both mainland ferry terminals.
So left PA on the 12th, ferry is 1.5 hrs (IF there were no waits, which I think there usually is), then 29 hrs to Whitehorse (with no stops assuming).
I'd say at least a 35 hr trip. Getting to Whitehorse late on the 13th.
One night in Whitehorse? Then 7 hrs to Laird Springs. Possible I guess.
I read his mother's message this morning where she's saying BS came from a loving home.
Mother of Port Alberni teen accused of murder issues plea to her son to "come home safe": Star Vancouver
Well, MOO, there was a lot of damage done by his parents divorce, IMO. Lots of parental alienation it sounds on both ends. BS must have felt a great deal of anger.
LOL !...............YEAAAAH !!.....moo
Whitehorse, Yukon is where some of the relatives thought they were heading, to look for work, but it’s not been established if they went that far north. If they did, they didn’t look very hard. But if it was all a ruse, it also could be the reason an optimistic and trusting family member lent them the truck and camper. JMO
Hmmm. The Ramsay ransom note needed to be split into two volumes.... Sorry, couldn't resist.
When I first heard about this news story I said to my spouse that they went to Whitehorse to find work, he said - who goes to Whitehorse to find work? Not sure he's right, but he has lots of family who've worked in Northern BC mines and Fort McMurray, so maybe he was right. Wondering if Whitehorse wasn't really in the plan.
