Nova Scotia, April 18-19, 2020
Over a period of thirteen hours, a 51 year old denturist carried out Canada’s most deadly act of mass murder.
Dressed in a police officer’s uniform and driving a replica police cruiser, this murderer would leave a trail of innocent victims and burnt homes in his wake. In total twenty two Nova Scotians lost their lives including a pregnant woman, a RCMP Constable, and many other innocent victims who were unfortunate enough to cross his path.
In this episode of Nighttime, our topic is the gunman’s history of domestic violence. Our guest is Global News features reporter Jane Gerster.
