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?

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."
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.
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 being a colossal amount of misery.

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.
The Guardian is reporting that "Ireland is bracing itself for Hurricane Ophelia with a red weather warning issued for the Republic and an amber warning issued for Northern Ireland. To underline the serious risk Ophelia poses to public safety, Met Éireann also warned that it could be as bad the 1961 Hurricane Debbie, the most powerful cyclone ever to hit Ireland, which caused 18 deaths." I'm a bit confused. Hurricanes normally form in warmer waters.
The Washington Post is reporting that "On Saturday, Hurricane Ophelia accomplished the unthinkable, attaining Category 3 strength farther east than any storm in recorded history. Racing north into colder waters, the storm has since weakened to Category 1, but it is set to hammer Ireland and the northern United Kingdom with damaging winds and torrential rain on Monday as a former hurricane." After Ireland it's due to hit Scotland and miss England.
CNN is reporting that "Ophelia's position is the farthest east that a major hurricane has traveled in the Atlantic. The previous record was held by Hurricane Frances in 1980, according to CNN meteorologist Haley Brink. Frances formed off the northwest coast of Africa near Senegal, according to an archived National Hurricane Center report. Frances never made landfall."
CNN is also reporting that "Ophelia weakened from a Category 3 to a Category 2 hurricane early Sunday, with sustained winds of 105 mph." It's a wild world so it is. Mind how ya go.
Update: The Washington Post is reporting that "Former Hurricane Ophelia plowed into southern Ireland early Monday, unleashing wind gusts as high as 119 mph, ripping off roofs and downing trees. The Irish Meteorological Service said it could be the country’s strongest storm in 50 years."
The BBC is reporting that "As hurricane-force gusts battered the Republic of Ireland, one woman and a man died in separate incidents when trees fell on their cars. A second man died in a chainsaw accident while attempting to remove a tree felled by the storm."

The Guardian is reporting that Bacchus, a Hells Angles puppet club has set up shop in PEI. No doubt, local law enforcement is concerned. RCMP Cpl. Andy Cook asks local residents if they want to support organized crime.
"There are other motorcycle clubs in Charlottetown and Summerside, but they don’t wear the one per cent patch that self-identify them as motorcycle gangs. Cook said so far there haven’t been any problems between the groups in P.E.I. 'Historically, here in P.E.I. everybody’s gotten along,' he said. That’s something Cook worries could change with a Hells Angels presence in the province. “The Hells Angels it’s a well documented history of them being a violent group,” Cook said. He also said the Angels have a history of drug trafficking and extortion, leading the courts to declare them a criminal organization. 'That’s the baggage the Hells Angels bring with them wherever they go,' he said." True enough. Bacchus as well.
Bacchus has a history of drug trafficking, bullying and murder whilst under the Hells Angels banner. The persona and the reality are two very different things. Many argue the persona is a mockery to justify plausible deniability when it comes to organized crime.
George Wethern, former Vice-President of the Oakland Chapter said "The Oakland Angels began issuing new charters and assisting chapters set up their own drug operations. The additions were designed to contribute to our image and business concerns, by providing a drug route link, manufacturing a drug, supplying chemicals, or distributing drugs in an untapped area."
Sorry to break it to ya guys but your clown up top is dressed as a Roman soldier not a Greek god. Same with the logo that has a condom on its nose. That means their logo is of the Bacchus who was a Roman soldier that was openly gay and secretly Christian not the Greek god. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just sayin. Warm brothers in the hood yo.
Yesterday the Vancouver Province printed a letter from a paramedic who lives in Vanocuer and is familar with the George Massey tunnel. He wanted to dispel some of the falsehoods being spread in the media about the tunnel.
"As a paramedic, when I need to move time-sensitive patients through the Massey Tunnel, I use the emergency lights and sirens and the carpool lanes or shoulders any time of the day or night to get to the tunnel entrance quickly where traffic is flowing as often as it does on a bridge. If there is a crash in the tunnel, blocking it, I confirm that traffic is stopped and use the emergency lights on the ambulance again and drive in from the opposite direction of traffic flow — no cars! — to get the patients and leave."
"In the rare event of a fire in the tunnel (traffic isn’t moving that fast, high-energy crashes are rare, hence few result in fires or serious injuries), then people can move to the adjacent tunnel using the emergency exits. None of the recent public fearmongering justifies the outrageous outlay for a new bridge that my grandchildren will be paying for. There isn’t an infinite pot of taxpayer money."
Since traffic patterns have changed after the NDP lifted the tolls on the Port Mann bridge, there isn't a need to build a third bridge crossing on that side of the Fraser river. The NDP just saved us 2.5 billion tax dollars through fiscal restraint. So now the corporate campaign contributors are spreading false rumors about the tunnel claiming it needs to be replaced. Building an additional crossing like the Alex Fraser bridge is an entirely different matter than getting rid of a useful functioning tunnel. If you get rid of a functioning tunnel you have to build a bridge twice as big to make up for it which of course costs more money. As does demolishing a perfectly good tunnel.
Even Richmond city council is opposed to replacing the tunnel and they are the ones that have to live with it. The real reason they want to get rid of the tunnel is so they can load more coal onto the cargo ships at the Fraser docks. Once again it has nothing to do with traffic flow or fiscal responsibility. The whole thermal coal exports out of that dock is still before the courts.
As one blog reader pointed out, at least the tunnel works in the winter and doesn't have falling icicles crashing into cars whenever it freezes.

The RCMP is reporting that Luc and Michelle LeBlanc were found guilty on October 11, 2017 of conspiracy to import cocaine into Canada following an eight-week jury trial in the Court of Queen's Bench in Moncton. This is from 2013 where a Moncton couple were caught trying to smuggle 16 kilos of cocaine into Canada from Texas in their RV. They met Luc LeBlanc in Mexico and loaded up their RV with cocaine with the intent to drive it back to Canada but were stopped at the US border. The couple became crown witnesses.
Luc was already sentenced to six years in the summer of 2016 for the crystal meth and cocaine bust six months after they were caught trying to bring the cocaine in an RV through Texas. I haven't heard what happened to Jeff Galant. He's friends with the National President of Bacchus.
