You know, many years ago I was sitting in the lunchroom at work and it was tax time and we were all complaining about the amount of taxes we had to pay..... One of the older immigrant gents quietly said " I like paying my taxes, my wife and I walked to the store late last night, it was quite enjoyable and I didn't have worry about criminals or the army shooting us."
It had a profound effect on me, and ever since I've been so thankful I don't live in a place like Somalia, Sierra Leone or some other such place....( You can just about pick anywhere in the world and it's worse than here )
I haven't had a problem with the RCMP in over 50 years and I'm glad we got em.
My feelings about the police aren't just about the local police here, but the police in general as a whole. Granted my thoughts may be a bit biased from having 3 police officer friends and my dad's job as a probation officer involving a lot of police dealings. Still, even without the connections I have a healthy degree of respect for them.
Just a random comment that I heard someone say in regards to the incident. More than likely a speculation on their part.

DEFILER PRODUCTIONS - Sound, stage and lighting - for all your events
I would never ever name any organization as being involved in any murder.
It could always cause another one, regardless of whom may be at fault originally and not always by the organization named.
Of course, if anyone has PROOF, contact the RCMP (as Nostradama pointed out).
Trust that the RCMP would be looking into any affiliation with any group.
there may have been an HA connection in this situation, buddy might've had friends in the gang, but its obviously not done by HA... they're a bit more low key.. i would think?
this is, mostly, an anonymous forum. I think that some people are making assumptions, since they've never met each and every other forum member on this mostly-anonymous forum, that there's no one on the forum who's either a full patch member of the Hell's Angels Nanaimo Chapter (or any other Chapter), an associate in some form, or a friend.
Those assumptions are wrong.
Some people here have stated from time to time that they are strong believers in protecting the rights of others. One right covered in Canadian law is the right of an accused person to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. But assumptions or presumptions of guilt or relationships between people and groups are being made. So are assumptions about who's really responsible. Until a trial is held and until a verdict is handed down, there is no guilty party.
If I were to post here that members of the Retired Log Scalers' Association of South West Cedar and Outer Cranberry were responsible for this shooting, I'd be wrong. I'd be wrong because I didn't see the shooting and I don't know if any of the people involved in the shooting might be members of the Retired Log Scalers, etc., or related to them, or had business dealings with them. Does anyone here have all the direct, personal, "I was there" information? Anyone present when the shooting was being planned? Anyone who was present at absolutely everything that led up to this shooting should be giving evidence in court. Others who weren't shouldn't be making assumptions, drawing connections where none may exist.

last i checked, the point of a public forum board is to "chat"... aka a place to come together and discuss ideas, opinions, assumptions, rants, ect. am i wrong?
as well as, last i checked, we're not the judge or jury and anything we say on here is just he said she said and has nothing to do with the investigation of this murder.
I'd like to know why some people take a "rant" board so seriously... we're all adults here, and we're all entitled to our own opinions and assumptions... no reason to be defensive, Nostradama, about this... unless you're in on the debt collecting? (just kidding, of course. I'm just trying to rifle some tail feathers since you seem to be so passionate about being "the other side" on every discussion)
