More information to follow. In the meantime, if anyone has any information on the residents of the home in Winnipeg where he was hiding out we would be very interested.
And to answer some questions posed to us, sadly no, on this the mainstream media did beat us to the story.
However, time for some educated speculation on out part.
Some boneheads close to the Aryan Guard were from Winnipeg. And we know that although they moved to Calgary that there are still people they know who lived in Winnipeg. We wonder if there's a connection?
We also know that John Marleau, basically the main cause for the events that transpired, has links to Winnipeg. And Jason Harley, a former Aryan Guard member who attended their first "White Pride" march in Calgary in 2008 now lives in Winnipeg as well.
