Online land title search will cost you about $15(they stoped giving out the first name for free). But might be held by a third-party hologram.

Anyway, regarding the property, who knows for sure exactly where Jerry's property was. The claim was a childhood memory of his son. We know how bad people's knowledge of this area is--it could have actually been on Bowen Island or one of the Gulf Islands for all we know. 

 

Their house was on the peninsula somewhere. One of Jerry's kids attended Claremont.

It's the same old story. Somebody moves to downtown Moose Jaw and then complains about the noise.

For what it's worth, his manager lived on Lands End Rd according to my grandparents.

Used to live here. He has 10 acres North of Elk Lake, and lived there for quite a few years.

As of 2015, although not living there, he still owned the property.

If I recall, when he lived there, he had major issues with the Stanhope composting facility, which was nearby.

 

When A&B Sound was the go-to music store in town (before internet streaming), he was a regular at A&B, and was frequently seen on the surrounding sidewalks. 

It was pretty common for COV residents to see Cummings walking around downtown when he lived at Elk Lake.

Sounds like someone might be paying some speculation tax.
