Manhunt suspects were inadvertently let go last week—nationwide search continues into day eight
During a routine alcohol check-in a dry indigenous community, fugitives Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod were stopped last week.
Only to be let go.
The boys were stopped at a Cree reserve near Split Lake by local constables. This was after the pair burned their first vehicle which was to be found near the murdered body of professor emeritus at UBC, Leonard Dyck.
It has since confirmed the constable saw “maps and camping gear within that vehicle that they were driving.”
“We weren’t aware of their status, of them being wanted,” band councillor Nathan Neckoway said. “Apparently after they came to our community, that’s when they sent out that wanted [status].”
The RCMP has come out against suggestions that Schmegelsky and McLeod were apprehended by RCMP.
By now, it has been two days since the last “credible tip” saw the RCMP—aided by multiple forms of law enforcement including a canine unit and the Royal Canadian Air Force—scouring the rough terrain surrounding York Landing, Manitoba on Sunday.
The tip came from volunteers of Bear Clan Patrol, an Indigenous watch group, who said they saw two men matching the descriptions of Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod scavenging for food in a local dump.
“That advice still holds, RCMP said, despite a “thorough and exhaustive” search of the York Landing area turning up empty,” reports Global News’s Rachael D’Amore.
Unfortunately, the RCMP has not been able to “substantiate the tip” and the two suspects remain at large.
The hectic search on Sunday saw many York Landing citizens asked to stay indoors and lock their doors. While the RCMP are currently scaling back their efforts in the area to broaden their search, they ask the citizens to remain watchful and to be careful.
Schmegelsky and McLeod are still considered armed and very dangerous, having currently been charged with the death of Leonard Dyck, as well as being the primary suspects in the double homicide that ended the lives of Australian Lucas Fowler and American Chynna Deese.
Don Cherry was trying to make a point about patriotism, loving our country, and honouring those who sacrificed everything so we could be free.
Cherry had clearly seen a lot of people not wearing poppies, and as the public figure who has perhaps done more than any other to show support for our troops and encourage respect for Veterans, Cherry was obviously pissed off.
In remarks that—if people weren’t afraid of offending the cancel culture cops—most Canadians would admit to agreeing with, Cherry said that people who enjoy the freedom of coming here and living in Canada (enjoying freedom not enjoyed in many other nations) should at the very least wear a poppy to show respect for Canadians who fell in war.
Of course, any hint of patriotism or nationalism makes the elites go absolutely crazy, and that’s what happened.
The outrage mobs and cancel culture cops went into overdrive, and Sportsnet (a company that is apparently fine with letting communist China-controlled Huawei sponsor Hockey Night in Canada) fired Cherry.
And they fired him on Remembrance Day of all days, which is a huge insult and totally disrespectful to Cherry considering how much he has fought to stand up for Veterans and those who lost their lives for Canada.
By giving in to the outrage mobs, Sportsnet has disgraced themselves.
Cherry’s colleague Ron MacLean also threw Cherry under the bus, after nodding along with Cherry and giving a thumbs up to his remarks, he then acted like he didn’t really get Cherry’s comments.
Peter Mansbridge also wrote an article for CBC with the subheading, “The notion that Canada’s veterans were all white is dangerously wrong and an insult to thousands.”
Yeah, bro, that would be “wrong” and “offensive,” if Cherry had actually brought up race.
But he didn’t.
Cherry didn’t mention race at all.
So CBC pushes an article by Mansbridge that skews the facts to make it look like Cherry was talking about race?
Also, how about the loyalty of CBC throwing Cherry under the bus after all he’s done for them – including the millions of Canadians who only watched CBC for Hockey Night in Canada?
So now, this is where Canada is:
The Prime Minister wore blackface so many times he can’t even remember how often, and he’s still in power (after getting a big assist from the media), while Don Cherry—a man who does everything he can to bring attention to our veterans and honour our troops—gets fired for saying people should wear poppies.
It’s total hypocrisy, as the examples below make clear:
“Kellie Leitch: “Values Test”
Quebec Government: “Values Test”
Cherry: “Wear Poppies”
Elites: REMOVE HIM!!”
What the hell is going on?
This is a disgrace, and it shows once again why the establishment media and political elites need to be defeated. Their priorities and judgement are broken beyond repair.
The grandson of a British World War II veteran who died on the beach in Dunkirk in 1940 during the evacuation of Allied forces is going back to where his grandfather made the ultimate sacrifice.
Thomas Michael McDonald, who himself never met his grandfather, had a love of Canada instilled in him by his father, just as his own father instilled it in him.
Shane McDonald, father of Thomas, says his father described Canada as a “wondrous mystical far off place” by his father before he fought in the war, moving to Canada to raise his young family in a new, booming young country.
With that in mind, the McDonald’s made the journey to the beaches of Dunkirk to pay tribute to where the patriarch made his sacrifice.
McDonald says it was overwhelmingly emotional to be on the beaches where his grandfather waited in the sand for a rescue that never came.
Shane was also able to locate his grandfather’s name on the memorial nearby, and attended the Remembrance Day ceremonies in Dunkirk.
Shane was also noticed by French locals at the ceremony, having conversations with others in attendance.
“I don’t know whose English or French was worse … but the actual meaning behind the conversation was one hundred percent understood,” said Shane McDonald.
“Part of his posthumous legacy, I truly believe, is I am a Canadian citizen,” said Shane. “He gave me one of the greatest gifts any parent or grandparent can give.”
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is calling PM Trudeau to recall Parliament just five days after Trudeau is expected to announce his cabinet.
According to the CBC, Scheer made the demand a day before the two leaders were supposed to meet.
Simon Jefferies, the spokesperson for Andrew Scheer, said Parliament should reconvene to address growing divisions in the country coupled with an economic downturn in the energy sector.
“Trudeau can’t keep running scared from testing the confidence of the House,” said Jefferies. “We need to roll up our sleeves and get to work on behalf of Canadians.”
Jefferies said Scheer would try to convince Trudeau for certain priorities to be included in his throne speech. They’ll be based on the Conservatives’ priorities for the new Parliament.
Priorities include “keeping Canada united and strong,” “helping Canadians get ahead,” “restoring ethics and accountability in government,” and “getting the energy sector back to work.”
The Liberals won 157 seats this election, enough to form a minority government; the Conservatives came second with 121 MPs.
Trudeau has said he will reveal his new cabinet on November 20 but hasn’t announced when he plans to recall Parliament.
Environment Canada is warning of freezing rain across sections of British Columbia. Icy conditions on numerous highways are expected.
According to the Canadian Press, Arctic air combined with a warm Pacific front throwing moist air will create icy conditions. These conditions will lead to icy rain.
The freezing rain could be mixed with snow near Prince George, Williams Lake, Quesnel, and Stuart-Nechako.
Residents are warned of slippery conditions.
Environment Canada proclaims freezing rain and ice pellets may further spread south late Monday. The direction is toward the South Thompson region and southwest Interior highways, including the Coquihalla and Okanagan Connector.
A special weather statement for the Peace Region has also been issued. The frontal system is expected to produce a “wintry mix” of weather through to Tuesday.
