Thank you, author, for the truth.
The RCMP denies the obvious, and this book makes that clear.
OF COURSE most Canadians know they have a problem regarding serial killers. Indeed, all nations do and have since man walked the earth, and Canadians are not at fault, nor should they take idiotic means and rationalizations to attempt to deny the obvious.
I saw an official with the RMCP that said, to paraphrase, "THE TERM SERIAL KILLER IS NOT A TERM YOU HEAR OFTEN IN CANADA BECAUSE THEY ARE SO RARE." I laughed at either his ignorance or his attempt to ignore reality.
The truth is, every society (and "every" means "every") from the time man walked this earth has had serial killers, and denying they exist is droves in Canada doesn't make them not exist.
Serial murder isn't new. It is not defined to one nation or continent. And it sure is not exempt in Canada. But rational people know this.
(1) But what does one expect from the RCMP that actually paid Clifford Robert Olson $100,000 to do their jobs for them? Imagine paying a serial killer to FIND THE BODIES! Incredible? It is true. The RCMP brought the money is a paper sack. Olson did their job for them. Pathetic and embarrassing? You bet.
(2) What does one expect from law enforcement officials that by ignore the missing aboriginal women? Shame on them. Aboriginal women are also daughters, sisters, and they deserve as much attention from law enforcement as the murder of the richest Canadian. Yet they don't recieve it. Same on the RMPC for having scant interest in these ladies.
(3) What does one expect for a court to try the Pig Farmer on 6 counts of murder when slews, maybe 75, women are forever missing from Downtown Eastside and law enforcement that was told at least one serial killer was at large and basically not only refused to believe it, but when they did, they ignored it for years. Denial does not please the victims parents.
These women are also daughters. The are NOT TRASH.
The "Highway of Tears" and the investigation into it will end with no action.
Serial killers are not a rare breed in Canada even if the RMCP claim they are.
Thankfully, this author is honest.
The RCMP could make a stab at being honest and then addressing the problem, really addressing it, instead of denying that so many women have disappeared from Eastside. I would bet the vast majority of them did not take a vacation. They are dead, not laying bets on the French Riveria; not traveling the world. They are not hiding. They are dead, daughers of mothers and fathers that loved them, and these missing women are ignored. Talk about shameful? Talk about not caring? Yes and yes.
Buy the book and draw your own conclusions.
Or, don't read it and "buy" the party line. Stick your head in the sand, for it is confortable choosing to be ignorant, eh?
