Capital Voices: RCMP commissioner's unforgettable case: 'The murderer sent me a Christmas card' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, July 05, 2017
And she says that Dave leaves for the evening and doesn’t come back til the early morning. But he does have a trunkful of marijuana, and they go on this big spree. They buy a truck in Edson, Alberta, and go around selling marijuana and having a big time living off the proceeds. And so far we have a very strong foundation to suspect Dave, but we don’t have any real evidence.“But McCarthy calls us back the next day to say ‘I forgot to tell you something. There’s a little berm out of a rise coming out of Edson where we stopped one day and threw the trunk, because we had all the pot in the truck.’ So off to Edson we go, where we recover the trunk, and we’re able to take the plastic wrapping there that had been cut from the same roll – and there was a physical match to the plastic that’s at the stash site back at the Skolos farm.“So it’s coming together. But do you think I could get anybody to take this on as a murder trial? Because we don’t have a body and we’ve got a lot of work to do. And in fairness, it is a stretch.
Convicted murderer David Pritchard in 2014, when, due to his terminal cancer, he was granted parole from prison. He was 51. He died last year.“I’d run a wiretap on this guy, but it wasn’t getting us anything. Whoever put the microphone in the place put it right by the furnace, and it was wintertime, so about every three or four minutes, whatever you were listening to was gone.“But Dave is mad at McCarthy, and we hear on the wire that he’s trying to figure out how he can kill her, because she’s a witness and a liability, she’s a loose end. So I do a search warrant on his house to get his firearms. I knew that would make him crazy, plus it’s in the public interest that he not have weapons because he wants to kill McCarthy. And he comes home and we’re listening to him on the wire, and he’s going nuts.“So he pages me, and I call and he says ‘I understand you and the boys were by the house today.’ I said, ‘Yeah, we were. You weren’t there. Were you hiding, Dave?’...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
