Former B.C. legislature clerk’s spending was ‘marked departure’ from duties, Crown says

 

— A book on beekeeping, a wood splitter and a cushion decorated with the Union Jack and the words “God Save the Queen,” are among the items that a special prosecutor alleges former B.C. legislature clerk Craig James improperly paid for with government dollars.

 

David Butcher began arguments Monday in James’s B.C. Supreme Court trial, alleging the offences also involved a $250,000 retirement allowance and travel expenses.

 

James pleaded not guilty to two counts of fraud over $5,000 and three counts of breach of trust by a public officer. His defence lawyers have not yet presented arguments in court.

 

“Mr. James was no ordinary employee. As the parliamentary equivalent of a CEO, he had a responsibility to the institution [and] the people of British Columbia to manage the affairs and resources of the legislature in an exemplary manner,” Butcher said.

 

Instead, Butcher told the court, James used public dollars for personal gain.

A Victoria woman convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily harm in a 2017 crash that left an 11-year-old girl catastrophically injured surrendered herself Tuesday afternoon after a B.C. judge dismissed her appeal.

Tenessa Rayann Nikirk was convicted in January 2020 and sentenced nearly a year later on Dec. 21, 2020, to two years in prison for striking Leila Bui with her vehicle, throwing the child 26 metres. Leila became wedged under an oncoming car. She ­suffered severe brain damage, a fractured neck and a lacerated spleen.

Nikirk spent two weeks in custody at the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women, and was released on $5,000 bail on Jan. 5, 2021, with conditions that include not driving. Her appeal, filed eight days after her sentencing, was dismissed by B.C.’s highest court Tuesday.

Nikirk was required to surrender herself Tuesday to begin serving her sentence. She did so around 2:30 p.m., said her lawyer, Donald McKay.

Shoplifter Arrested While Officers Speak With Store Staff About Ongoing Shoplifting Issue

 

Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 - File: #22-3098

 

Victoria, BC – Two VicPD officers, who were in their full duty uniform at a store in Mayfair Mall responding to a series of shoplifting incidents, arrested a man who attempted to shoplift in front of them.

 

At approximately 12:40 p.m. on Tuesday, January 25th, two VicPD officers were speaking with staff at a store in the 3100-block of Douglas Street. Staff have recently faced several brazen shoplifting incidents, including a daytime robbery in which a staff member was assaulted. Both officers were wearing their full duty uniform, complete with shoulder crests, duty belts and “VICTORIA POLICE” emblazoned on their duty vests.

 

While officers were speaking with staff, one of them observed a man walking in a hurried manner, head lowered, with a packaged partially hidden under his jacket. The man walked past the cash registers and exited the store.

Officers caught up with the man and upon stopping him, discovered he had just stolen product from the store. He was arrested without incident.

 

The man was released pending a future court date with conditions including a condition banning him from mall property.

 

The property was returned to the store.

And he will be back tomorrow to get whatever he wanted. I doubt the ban will be executed. How can it be when everyone is walking around with their faces covered up. Add a hoodie and different clothes. Can’t tell anyone apart.

Help Us Identify This Stabbing Suspect

 

Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 - File: #22-2336

 

Victoria, BC – VicPD officers are asking for your help to identify a man who stabbed a loss prevention officer with a screwdriver after a theft was interrupted last week.

 

At approximately 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19th, a man attempted to steal from a business in the 900-block of Yates street. A loss prevention officer confronted the suspect who then challenged the officer to fight and spat on him. When the loss prevention officer attempted to apprehend the suspect, the man stabbed him with a screwdriver. The victim was wearing a protective vest which prevented serious physical injury. The suspect fled the scene on foot.

 

The suspect is described as an adult Caucasian man standing five feet, nine inches tall, with a slim build. The suspect wore a baseball hat with a red brim, a black jacket over a grey hooded sweater, and blue jeans.

 

This incident remains under investigation.

Another addition to the “stabbing of the day” file.

May I suggest they look at 844 Johnson or Our Place?

Parole extended for Saanich, B.C. murderer Derik Lord
 
lord-1-4879652-1643229851778.jpeg

Derik Lord, shown in this file image, was serving a life sentence for the 1990 murders of Sharon Huenemann and Doris Leatherbarrow.

Jan. 26, 2022

The Parole Board of Canada (PBC) has extended parole privileges for Derik Lord, a Saanich, B.C., man who was found guilty of killing a friend's mother and grandmother for promised inheritance money and property.

Lord has been allowed to stay four nights a week at the home of his spouse and son, before returning three nights a week to a halfway house, according to a parole ruling released Jan. 6.

Lord was first granted day parole in 2020, following the murders of Sharon Huenemann and Doris Leatherbarrow in their Tsawwassen, B.C., home in 1990.

The pair were killed after inviting Lord and his friend, David Muir, into their home for food.

Witnesses recount efforts to help pedestrians at fatal crash scene, describe screaming driver

Aug. 27, 2018 collision on Central Saanich Road; driver is on trial

A Central Saanich man described how he sprinted from a moving car to help a driver involved in what he thought was a terrible single-car accident in August 2018.

“I assumed from the speed that someone was hurt and I thought I had to help them,” Christopher Pennington testified Wednesday at Anthony Thomas’s trial in B.C. Supreme Court.

Thomas has pleaded not guilty to impaired driving and dangerous driving causing the death of Kim Ward and impaired driving and dangerous driving causing bodily harm to her sister, Tracy Ward.

Pennington testified that he was in the back seat of his father’s Acura on the night of Aug. 27, 2018, when he heard his father John say: “What’s this guy doing?”

He looked up and saw a red Jeep cross over the line in the centre of the road and continue to veer over to the left, off the road.

“At no point did it stop,” said ­Pennington. “I didn’t see any brake lights. It just kept going into the ­pedestrians, which I now know, then the bollards.”

Pennington yelled at his father to pull over and sprinted from the car.

 

“The driver was getting out of the vehicle which surprised me because in my head I thought someone was hurt and needed help,” he testified. “I asked: ‘Are you OK? Are you OK?’ He didn’t respond to me. He just had these big blank eyes, not focused, just stared right through me. I asked him again: ‘Are you OK?’ He didn’t respond to me.”

Re: Richmond Multiple Murder

 

Kim Bolan @kbolan
 
IHIT doesn’t quite say tragic Richmond death of 4 was a murder-suicide but does confirm there are no outstanding suspects.
 
“While it is still early in the investigation, this does not appear to be an incident of partner violence,” Sgt. David Lee says.
 
This is a tragic loss of life,” Lee said, adding “but the community is safe as we have confirmed this is an isolated incident and there are no suspects at large.”
 
Someone in the house had a firearms licence, he said. So if not intimate partner violence, is one of the teens who died the shooter? Terrible situation no matter what, but important to determine if some intervention could have saved lives.

There’s absolutely no risk unless you happen to be near one of the stabbers.

That pretty much covers everything south of Finlayson and East of Shelbourne.
