Pickton, 56, is charged with the murders of 26 women, most of whom were hookers and prostitutes from Vancouver's impoverished East side
If convicted on more than 14 charges, Willie Pickton will become Canada's worst serial killer.
I am surprised that more Canadians and British Columbians in Taiwan have not been talking about this case. This sort of crime is not supposed to happen in Canada is it? You can be sure if it happened in another country, especially one with a "gun" culture, a lot of hypocritical socialist Canadians would have no qualms talking about the event in a sanctimonious manner.
In fact, most of the reporters covering the case in Vancouver are "international reporters." not the local media. Many Canadians are afraid that the trial will ruin "Canada's peaceful image."
On the other site in Taiwan, there are quite a few Canadians and BCers (eg Jaboney) that are constantly talking about the US but are very quiet on Canadian matters. They have been real quiet with regards to this case.
Personally, I think the Canadian media and film industry should make a movie about these murders. The rest of the world is watching and is very interested indeed.
Then again, that would require a capitalist mindset, which is much too much to ask for from Canada's Statist media and film industry.
