answers to e-mails and inquiries
Warren receives many questions and requests from fans, foes.
potential clients and past listeners. Below are responses
to some of those e-mails and letters:
All website viewers, contacts, sources, etc: This page is again re-open for business as of March 12, 2012. Thank you for your patience.
GORDON STEELE, Edmonton: Every human being has
a bias. See the current issue of the magazine you promote.
DEBBIE WALKER, Transluscent PR, Vancouver: Sorry,
BILL KUSHNIRYK, Manitoba: While the Bloc cartoon
is not exactly new, it sure carries a straightforward message.
WARREN THOMAS, Saskatchewan: The article for
which you are looking first ran in The Toronto Star.
THEMIKO, Manitoba: Thnx for keeping me informed
re Judge Brian Corrin.
ASHLEY OWENS, Vancouver, B.C.: Would have been
happy to assist as I have done with literally hundreds of
journalism students in the past, but a Monday-afternoon request
with a Wednesday deadline is pushing it. Sorry.
KEN KENNEDY, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Hi, the answer
to your question is "no." I found your later comments
interesting, as well.
JEANNINE SPENCER: You are seeking the author's
name and title of a book I featured on-air and in print several
years ago. It covered the origins of phrases like "raining
cats and dogs" and "bring home the bacon."
I cannot recall, ma'am. However, somebody with a better memory
than mine will surely write in with the correct answer.
JACK HOEPPNER, Plum Coulee, Manitoba: Thnx for
your kind offer, but not necessary...all the white stuff will
be gone by the time you read this. And thnx for all your assistance
and expertise while we worked together...I will onpass your
notes to the two individuals you mentioned next time I hear
from them. Cheers.
KEN HILL, Two Hills, Alberta: Thnx for your query.
Sorry, but I am concentrating on hand-picked media jobs right
now. By the way, say "hi" to people in Two Hills
-- I always enjoyed your town when I wrote a column for The
Calgary Herald years ago.
WILLIE PICKTON, the pig-farm series killer --
to Anne Hayes (see below) and Bruce Morris (see below) and
all others who have made e-mail, telephone or other queries
about this trial and any subsequent actions:
Please read a new book, "ON THE FARM,"
by Stevie Cameron, published by Alfred A. Knopf. She has nailed
it all down, as she did with her earlier book about Brian
Anne Heyes, British Columbia: I appreciate your
memories and kind thoughts about the Pickton affair and my
radio series, "WHERE ARE THESE WOMEN ?" Your work
on the Downtown Eastside for MP Pat Carney must have gone
a way in making that intolerable situation well known. I also
well remember your little group, "Shame The Johns."
I hope you will be called to testify at the upcoming independent
inquiry so that something like this will never happen again.
Please stay in touch.
Bruce Morris, British Columbia: Thnx for remembering
the radio series I broadcast on CKNW about the missing women,
sir. Your support is much appreciated, as was your e-mail.
Strange that the authorities, police, RCMP, etc., etc., have
made no such comments as your own and a similar view from
Arthur Alexander just below this one.
Mike L., New Hampshire: Many of these scams between
our two countries, sir. I suggest you shift your info to the
RCMP in Ottawa. Best of luck and thnx for being a good citizen.
Arthur Alexander, North Vancouver, B.C.: re Willie
Pickton -- thnx so much for remembering, sir. That special
series, "WHERE ARE THESE WOMEN ?" ran on CKNW Radio
for an entire week. I remember saying several times on-the-air
during that series that I was sick, tired and generally pissed
off because most of the authorities, including most police
officers, took the attitude "oh, yeah, it is terrible
it is happening ... but, after all, they are only homeless
hookers." Again, Arthur, my appreciation for your e-mail
and for remembering.
Jean James, Surrey, B.C.: Not in my ball park,
sorry. Suggest you contact a Brit newspaper.
Melissa Kerr: Send me your snail-mail address
and I will put a couple of newspaper clippings together about
the murder for you. Before you start any action, I would you
suggest you check the last detail of any claim about your
relationship (or not) to the person in question.
Anchors & Sails, and Bev Smith, UCalgary
alumni, Alberta: I cannot see why you and a parliamentary
reporter with The Sun, even Sandra Landriault, are so upset
about someone being denied a federal job because of race --
We (all of us) have allowed this kind of practise to become
both federal and provincial political correctness for the
past 50 years. It is entrenched into law. What are YOU now
going to clean it up ?
Wayne Bennink, Network Support Technician, Winnipeg,
Manitoba: I suspect your are speaking about PTSD, after returning
from Afghanistan or elsewhere with war injuries, physical,
mental, or both. If that is correct, the problem with the
Charlottetown Shuffle of medical records is well known. If
my guess is correct, then hang tough a couple of weeks...I
am trying to track down a guy who's been through it and maybe
can help you and others. For your work in our forces, thank
Sharon Huuha, Kamloops, B.S.: I usually confine
my investigations and, subsquent news stories, to allegations
about wrongfully-convicted murders, therefore the fact he
supposedly broke the law while being a law-enforcement officer,
changes the rules I set for myself. Please send copies --
COPIES ONLY -- of newspaper clippings and other such material
by snail-mail so I can keep in his file and start a prelminary
look-see. Please do not start dancing around the Douglas Fir
just yet. These cases take ages and I do not accept anybody's
word as God-given. I will e-mail you when I receive your package.
M.G.: (Address withheld): As long as Innocence
Project Prof. Allan Young has agreed to release to the MSM,
you go ahead to whomsoever you prefer...but please keep me-to-date
and, if I can assist the outlet you have chosen, then tell
them to contact me by e-mail.
Paul (Name withheld): I am still working on the
release of Leon Walchuk. In fact, it was only this morning
I concluded reading the 27-page Sereca (Peter L. Senez) report
to the federal justice department, which puts paid completely
to the claims by the Crown that Leon could have had anything
to do with setting the fire which killed Corinne. I hope to
be going public with the summary of this report and other
new details very soon. If you have anything new, please send
to me ASAP, via snail-mail if the details are lengthy (Unit
# 6 - 1030 Hulford St., Victoria, B.C., V8X 3B6). What have
you got ?
A.W. (Name Withheld by Webmaster), Manitoba:
I have received two messages about the hotel allegations you
mention and my answer to the earlier writers is identical
-- you need media attention in Winnipeg.
Gordon Steele, Edmonton, Alberta: You question
about whether the Louisiana oil spill "could be diverted
to Alaska or any other Republication state where the philosophy
'drill, baby, drill' is supported" strikes me as the
dumbest comment since I got out of bed and shaved a month
ago this morning.
A. & V. Dolleris, Ontario: Your comparison
to the monthly pension and social aid of $2,470 paid to refugees
compared to the monthly OAS and Guaranteed Annual Supplement
of $1,012 to a Canadian senior who has contributed to the
development of this country is a controversial issue being
followed by Bob Rae, who also wants immigrants to be allowed
to become Canadian citizens after a residency of only three
years. Watch for it (as usual) to become dragged down between
principle and politics.
Allan Schneider, Girouxville, Alberta: I suspect
your need a patent and/or copyright lawyer, not the media.
Besides that, I do not take on cases after a complainant has
shovelled on the info to other media outlets. Sorry.
Caroline Lawrence: Thnx for your e-mail. Answer
to your query is on my website.
Mike D'Amour, reporter, News Leader, Cowichan,
B.C.: Of course I recall you, Mike -- and would certainly
be happy to help with your story about Kelvin Purdy. As I
have written and broadcast many times, Purdy (in my view)
was wrongfully convicted of murder. Call me around 9 a.m.,
either Thursday or Friday this week.
Kevin Gardner, Calgary: Sorry, sir, I am aware
of your story and it's not on my highway. Regards.
Kevin Brown, Manitoba: Your "little known
fact" is not my beat, However, since this is the opening
day of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, I invite readers
and listeners to provide a reason for the information you
provided for all of us: "The first 'cup' (testicular
guard) was used in ice hockey in 1874; the first head helmet
was used in 1974." What do we learn from this ?
Ken Filsinger, Orangeville, Ont.: Good luck with
your battle but, as you point out in your second e-mail to
me, I can't fight your City Hall from the west coast !
Stewart Webb, Qualicum Beach, B.C.: Thnx for
standing up in your usual, solid, factual way for Bob Latimer,
who is still suffering the slings and arrows about Tracy's
death. It continues to amaze me how he is able to maintain
his dignity and a little composure through all the interviews
I have conducted with him, most of them from inside prison.
I still wonder about all those people who place themselves
at the Right Hand Side and laud the sentence of "life...no
full parole for 10 years." I have crossed swords publicly
with Arthur Schafer on a great number of issues, however the
Latimer case is one upon which we both agree down the last
WARREN TO ALL LISTENERS AND/OR READERS: Please
join with me today in remembering Red Alix, who woke up his
world for so many years with a magnificent blend of good humor,
news that touched a nation, a daily running commentary about
(literally) everything under the sun, even including a 45-second
daily editorial from myself, his own songs...nobody came close
to being the quintessential "right man for the right
job." And for so many years. For always, he will remembered
as a friend and, just for today, we will bestow upon him the
title of "world's best golfer."
George Cuddy, Moston, Mass.: I usually reply
in detail to requests such as yours in this space, however
-- with the extreme details -- I will send a private e-mail
before the end of the week.
Nancy Mereska, Two Hills, Alberta: As always,
my appreciation for keeping up to date with the world-wide
cases involving polygamy -- as you point out, the latest court
decision (Dec. 17) nailed Allan Keate with a sentence of 33
years in jail for the sexual assault of a child and the jury
in Eldorado, Texas, deliberated for less than two hours. I
find it odd, though, while people are celebrating because
Keate was found guilty for his so-called "spiritual marriage"
to a 15-year-old girl, who gave birth at the age 16, some
Texas reports are ignoring the fact Keate had six wives, aged
between 17 and 49, in 2007 -- and he was only 55 years old
Colin McMahon, Manitoba: "Did I get any
fan mail ?" you ask. Answer: Not that I recall.
The Mustards All, Laurie, Marly, cats, dogs,
classic cars, children, five grandchildren, Killarney, Manitoba:
Your demand for $500 cash to restore an antique nursing (rocking)
chair is unmitigated gall, if not only for the fact we passed
it on in part because you started having children without
making certain beforehand they would, at least, somewhere
on which they could sleep. But, also, because I seem to recall
you carried two frozen bunny rabbits on the dashboard of you
clunker-car one winter morning, despite claiming to be an
Brian McAdam, Manitoba: Thnx for forwarding the
clipping about Dr. Timothy Ball's outspoken arguments regarding
the climate-change myth. He is a personal friend, who continues
to suffer the slings and arrows tossed at him by well-known
Martin J. Umstaetter, South Australia: Please....I
have better things to do than work on complaints about a telephone
Sarah Thistle: I will answer your question(s)
privately, but first have to know....a) What college degree
do you currently hold ? b) For which newspapers or other print
outlets, and with which MSM radio and TV outlets have you
worked ? c) Why do you want to become an investigative journalist
? d) In which province do you live ? e) Can you supply COPIES
of a couple of bylined stories ? Thank you.
Rose and John Lawrence: Good to hear from you
both after so long. Can you please snail-mail NS Oct. issue
to which you refer because, I suspect, if there is any math
logic involved in this argument about our legal system, the
whole thing should be snorty reading ! Cheers.
Mrs. Audrey Prior, Long Pond, NL: I have spent
the last two days reading all the available material about
your husband, Byron Prior's incredible story (plus all the
attachments regarding claims from other family members, etc.)
Although I usually resrict my work to wrongful murder convictions
and/or cold-case murder cases, I am astonished, concerned,
and more-than-curious about why no authorities (medical, law,
legal, ombud offices, local Newfoundland media, et al) apparently
are content to sweep the entire story under the rug. In that
regard, without supporting your husband's claim or not, I
will spend some time investing the major circumstances. Is
your husband allowed a) snail mail; b) telephone calls; and/or
c) e-mails while confined in Waterford Mental Institution
? Witnesses should snail-mail me and, if including documents,
should make certain they are copies, NOT originals. Thank
Bill Kushniryk, Swan River, Manitoba: We'd all
be expelled if that code was in existence today !
Beverley Smith, University of Calgary, (through
Anchors & Sails): Good to hear from you, A & S, keep
in touch -- however, allow me to point out you have faith
than I do in some members of the MSM (Mainstream Media) if
you think they are all going to abide with an embargo date
you have copied onto a story in all good faith.
Al Cassidy, British Columbia: Appreciate your
kind thoughts. Keep in touch.
Kevin R.J. Brown, Canada: The H1N1 theory you
passed along is most intriguing. Please advise if you receive
any supporting evidence. Thnx.
Bill Kushniryk, Manitoba: More power to you and
my support in your effort to stop Bill C-428, which would
extend old-age pension rights to people with only three years'
residency in Canada. Please keep me informed about the results
of your campaign.
Amanda Schmitz, Ontario: Thnx for your note of
appreciation for the help in finding your father. I am confident
the truth will prevail, he will be cleared and released. His
case is further proof we do not have a "justice system"
in Canada, merely "a system run by lawyers."
Billie & Gracia Tworek, Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Sorry, I cannot assist in your quest to discover "what
happened to all of Carman Rutan's remedies," however
I will throw the question open for all readers and listeners.
Anybody know ?
Michael & Sylvia Braithwaite, Toronto, Ont.:
We have received details about how your attempts to have a
child via IVF through a company in Argentina, which we have
already been onpassed to MSM outlets which might be interested
in the story and, if so, will contact you for the e-mails
and other evidence you mention. In the meantime, you might
contact RCMP (fraud division). Please keep PWIJ informed.
Drew McPherson: I need location of this "charity
race" plus from which province are your writing with
this info ? Thank you. (August 13, 2009.)
Nadia Moharib, Calgary, Alberta: "Hi"
to you too, gal. Too many years.
Francesca J.L., Manitoba: Your kind comments
about my program during the years it was broadcast nation-wide
from Vancouver were most kind and it was interesting to learn
what you have been up to since your move from Toronto to Winnipeg.
It's the first time, any "avid listener" has described
the on-air content as "like a good, chunky year-round
soup." Now, you are researching and writing about the
relationship between the state, the church and a married couple
"and the licence that binds them all" and you wish
to contact a guest I had in-studio between 2001 and 2004,
who spoke negatively about marriage as seen in the conservative
sense. Memory fails me, Francesca, but I'm putting this message
out in the hope a listener will recall and e-mail me the info,
which I will then onpass to you.
<<Name Withheld By Site Administrator>>
Manitoba: Your passing-on of the CJOB Radio report in reference
to sex crimes and a possible serial killer was appreciated.
Bonnie Stewart, Langley, B.C.: Thnx so much,
old friend, for bringing me up-to-speed on the absolute irony
about your daughter, Michelle -- the one who sent me hand-crafted
picture postcards. Tell this story to the world, gal, so that
this idiocy within the legal/medical system is exposed once
and for good. One wonders about hypocrisies of the past, should
a lawyer or a doctor have found him and/or her self in the
same position as yourself. Stay well, long life -- and kiss
Michelle for me, please.
<<Name Withheld By Site Administrator>>
Manitoba: Thank you for your message and copies of the many
e-mails you have sent to RCMP and Winnipeg Police regarding
allegations of murder(s), sex crimes, et al. Since all this
information is now in the hands of the authorities, there
is little I can do with your offer of DNA samples. Sorry.
Linda Ratcliffe, Burnaby, B.C.: Thnx for your
question. Warren still participates in freelance broadcasts,
regional and national. To check what he's doing now, please
go through this website, starting at Page One. He thanks you
for your kind words.
Peter & Marge Kingsland, Surrey, B.C.: To
answer your query, please see my note to readers below. The
inmate's story is being included in possible new entries when
this website is re-jigged, but that may not be for some time.
To all people supporting the "wrongful conviction"
claim of Kelvin Purdy: Please read his own four-page summary
"Overlooked," written from Pacific Institution,
Abbotsford, B.C. If you do not have a copy, please supply
a fax number or snail-mail address, and we will be happy to
send out a copy by return.
Neil Winter: The e-mail address you used is for
"my eyes only."
Beverley Smith, Calgary, Alberta, past president,
Kids First Parent Association of Canada, and "Anchor
And Sails," my middleman: Thank you for the latest column
re day-care. I will bring it to public attention through print
and radio next week.
Kim Casavant, British Columbia: Sorry, but I
am not an advocate pro- or con- Social Services.
Kanokwan (Kathy) Flegg, Saanichton, B.C.: Thnx
for the e-mail regarding your husband and the 1989 conviction
for child sexual abuse. Because of the date of conviction,
the fact Ernie is now 90, the only witness has died and, even
with the assistance of a university law professor, he was
unable to appeal, plus the fact I am actively involved in
following wrongful murder convictions, I regret I am unable
to assist you at this time. Sorry.
Doug Stead, Port Coquitlam, B.C.: Good to hear
from you, old friend, after so long. And I am most happy you
continue unabated with your anti-child-porn campaign. In your
letter you refer to "opposition." Can you explain,
publicly or privately ? Thnx.
Ivor Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief, J-Source.ca: Thank
you for your intro to the new resource centre and discussion
space. Please give my best regards to Cecil Rosner. We go
back a long way.
Pastor D.R. Curtis, Freelton, Ontario: Please
cease and desist the barrage of e-mails and faxes. You are
only wasting paper as our website clearly defines the areas
of expertise in which we are involved. Thank you.
Mrs. Barbara Sinclair, Earl Grey, Saskatchewan:
I have viewed the videos on youtube re the alleged abuse complaints
in Sydney, Nova Scotia, but cannot understand why George Poulain
has not approached local media in the Maritimes or the RCMP.
Marianne Scudder, Hampshire, U.K., and Larnaca,
Cyprus: Sorry, but I am unable to assist you in your campaign
about reportedly-undelivered hot tubs. I deal only with cold-case
murders and/or wrongful convictions. However, in passing,
I am curious why anybody would put up a 50 per cent deposit
for unseen merchandise.
Laurie Gray, Dawson Creek, B.C.: Thnx for your
query. The mailing address for PWIJ Inc., is repeated several
times on this website.
Glendene Grant, Kamloops, B.C.: Thnx for your
folo-up e-mail on the suspected human-trafficking case. I
have not received any clippings, etc., since I made the request
in mid-January. Repeat: I require COPIES of the material(s)
you mentioned before any decision can be made.
Harry Siemens, Winkler, Manitoba: Your rant about
the swine industry hit home. Incidentally, my wife just purchased
a frozen ham from Costco and I looked to see if it was Canadian
-- not one word about place of origin. Ain't there a law ?
Ray Argyle, Lagoon City, Ontario: Thoroughly
support your views about pulling out of Afghanistan. Seems
to me we are seeing more and more young Canadian soldiers
killed and/or maimed just to defend poppy fields. PS: Ray,
with all the spin and slanted propaganda we are being force-fed
from all angles these days, the fact you were (are ?) "the
only Canadian to have been elected a Fellow of the International
Public Relations Association" is not quite something
I would blast on my resumé !
Gordon Steele, Edmonton, Alberta: Thnx for the
copy of your letter to Prime Minister Harper re your belief
that we should retain the gun registry. Sorry, I vehemently
disagree with you -- the registry does nothing to stop killings,
and my tax bill is already high enough, thank you very much.
The fourth paragraph of your covering letter to me indicates
a great deal.
Ian Parsons, Courtenay, B.C.: Thnx for onpassing
your article in the current issue of Blueline Mag. I read
it with interest and much support for most of your issues.
In fact, I have sent it on to my good pal, former RCMP inspector,
Bruce Bowie, in Delta, B.C. Also, appreciation for mentioning
my speech at the Probus Club. We still remember the kind hospitality
tendered by yourself and Lynne.
Lorne Edwards, Winnipeg, Mb.: Good to hear from
you....and you have a better memory than most of us re the
policy change by Manitoba Hydro. Please keep in touch.
Karen File, California: Received your e-mail
and attachment(s) re the death of your son, Chadwick. Please
snail-mail COPIES of the information you do not trust through
electronic correspondence and I will undertake a preliminary
investigation. Thank you.
Ann Sutthery, Pitt Meadows, B.C.: Re your comments
about the murders of four RCMP officers in Mayerthorpe, Alberta,
and the subsequent sentences handed down to the two men who
pleaded guilty to manslaughter, I thoroughly agree with your
assessment of the so-called justice system in Canada today.
And, be ready for your blood to boil again -- there are direct
hints that legal counsel for both these two men are plotting
an appeal ! Stay in touch.
Glendene Grant, Kamloops, B.C.: Thnx for your
e-mail re your daughter, Jessie, whom you describe as "most
likely a human-trafficking victim." I am aware of her
story. Please snail-mail me COPIES of The Oracle 20-20, The
National Enquirer, and the Crime Watch Canada articles. I
cannot promise any results, but I will cross-reference with
my extensive files on similar cases and let you know (no charge).
Keep the faith.
Mary Miller, Nova Scotia: Yup, I am the same
Peter Warren who conducted that hour-long interview back in
the 1990s about the death of Clayton Miller. Your new campaign,
with a Facebook site, plus the material on www.unsolvedcanada.ca
plus the "Petition For Justice For Clayton Miller"
(http://gopetition.com/online/21878.html) should produce results.
Please snail-mail me (my address in Victoria, B.C. is on this
website) COPIES of a few of the newspaper clippings, keep
me informed, and I will do what I can to help publicize your
efforts. Is Ed McNeil still alive ?
Pam B: Poem requested can be found on Google
under "Just A Common Soldier."
Fred Little, Edmonton, Alberta and the literally
hundreds of other listeners who write at this time of year
about the same topic -- "Peter, I am a 38-year-old man
and would consider myself as having a very hard shell. But
you interview with a gentleman who called your program a number
of years ago and agononized in telling his story about drunk
driving and killing an all ll-year-old-boy, brought tears
to my eyes. Your public service in sharing that interview
with other journalists will save many lives this year...and
many more to come. Thank you. Keep up the great work."
Everybody -- thank you. Please make certain the host station,
CKNW, Vancouver, B.C., hears your thoughts. God bless.
Orest Slepokura, Strathmore, Alberta: Believe
me, there is nothing I would like more dearly than the key
to the radio-talk-show woodshed !
Dallas Alexander: Re "Whitey:" My file
is still open, From where are you writing to me ? Your name
rings a bell...have you contacted me before about your grandfather's
strange case ? What background do you have ?
Jack Bennest, www.bcradiohistory.com: Thnx for
your note. Great website. I will ship a couple of photographs
today if you supply your snail-mail address.
Norman Black, British Columbia: Re your request
-- I have e-mailed complete text to you under separate cover.
Please confirm delivery.
Jack Henderson & Associates, Fire Protection
Specialists, Ottawa, Ont.: Re the Walchuk case -- sorry, but
I am not about to hand over the results of more than two years'
work investigating this case to someone who "is not at
liberty to divulge the reason for my interest."
Donna Lowes, Princeton Central School: Your "career
project" sounds interesting. Sure, I will assist. Either
e-mail the questions or telephone me (we will have to set
a date and time as I am in-and-out). My telephone number is
on this website. Good luck.
Paul Jacobsen, New Westminster, B.C.: Good to
hear from you after so long. On what are you currently working
? Still in graphic design ?
Wayne Stanton, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Sorry, sir,
I have not checked my e-mail for a couple of days because
of a schedule on-the-road. I do hope it went well for you.
Please give me a quick update when you have a moment.
Cliff Kafka, British Columbia: Re: you incident
at the Canadian border crossing Sept. 28. As you can see from
this website, I now have my hands full handling wrongful convictions
and/or unsolved murders and, therefore, do not feel able to
assist you in having this case followed. Did you get the guard's
name and/or agent number ? How is your sick child now ? Please
keep me informed. Thnx.
Sheri Stein, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for your
e-mail. Yes, I had the Pischke boys (as men) on my program
several times. However, I have no access to the tapes you
request. You might try the author of "Where Children
Run," who is a fine lady and might be able to assist.
Hope this helps. Let me know. Good luck in motherhood.
Rick Masi, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Many thnx for
your kind message. I may be wrong, but didn't I once meet
your father...I think in my old friend Tony DeLuca's place
? We would certainly enjoy tasting the end product of your
family's second-generation tradition. Address is: Unit # 6
-- 1030 Hulford St., Victoria, B.C., V8X 3B6...much appreciated.
Ram Chevali, Boston, Mass.: Re your long message
about an alleged $33-million loss at the hands of a corrupt
counsel -- sorry, but I am now freelancing only in the fields
of cold-case murder investigations and/or wrongful convictions
along with my university teaching assignments. However, you
might keep me informed about any progress you do make. Thnx.
Cal Dancyt, Manitoba: Man, I must apologize if
that is a true story about me giving you hell 30 years ago
for causing sparks outside the radio-studio door. Sorry. To
answer your question: I am freelancing and teaching at university
right now. Say "hi" to your brother Curtis and tell
him his turkey sausage was (and probably still is) the greatest.
Neil Winter, Calgary, Alberta: Thnx for your
telephone call, e-mail and kind comments about my radio programs.
Have you applied for/been granted a pardon -- 1970 is a long
time ago ? Keep well atop your bulldozer and please keep checking
this website as I honestly believe we are getting somewhere
with at least three cases of genuine wrongful convictions.
All the best. Stay in touch.
Greg Fry, Seoul, Korea: Heh, my old producer,
delighted to hear you are returning to Canada and re-entering
the broadcasting field. You will discover many changes in
the business, but good luck and please keep me informed.
Jim France, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Good to hear
from you, Jim. On your request, since I am now freelancing,
I do not touch any story, criminal or otherwise, unless it
has worn its weary way through the so-called justice system,
appeals and all. Sorry, but please keep in touch.
Conrad Black, federal prison, Florida: As you
say "we soldier in different vineyards," however
I would like to thank you most sincerely for offering me your
views about the future of print newspapers as we know them
today. Seems to me, Peter Warren, reporter, that the demise
approaches faster than most ink-stained wretches dare believe.
Conrad, your sketch of what a fully-integrated internet newspaper
would look like, right down to a head count of rewrite specialists
and scattered correspondents, was intriguing (to say the least)
and brilliant in its simplicity. Again, much appreciation.
I will be back in touch next month.
Dennis Maynes, British Columbia: Sorry, this
is not my field of expertise. However, the fact you are facing
45 charges while protesting your innocence suggests to me
you should go public with the story...why not call the radio/TV/newspaper
outlet of your choice and speak to the news editor ? Please
keep me informed.
Doug Stead, Port Coquitlam, B.C.: Thnx, old friend,
for your never-ending battle against child-abuse. (For readers
of this website who are interested, please visit his website
at: www.antichildporn.org). Keep in touch, Doug.
Oryst Myroniuk, Calgary, Alberta: You are correct,
the U.K. holds the dubious distinction of allowing more video-surveillance
of citizens than any country in the so-called Western World.
It is now estimated that the average Briton (law-abiding or
otherwise) is subjected to unannounced camera scrutiny more
than 19 times per day. Now, they have okayed the invasion
of safety-deposit boxes. God help you if you pick your nose
Katherine Pilotte, Vancouver, B.C.: Yes, I received
the package about your husband and am currently progressing
through the documents and some transcripts I have been able
to dig up. Because of the age of this specific case, it is
going to take time to research before I get back to you. Please
understand. Also, sources tell me Mountain Institution is
currently under a l-o-n-g (57 days ?) lockdown and inmates
are only being allowed out of their cells for one hour every
24 hours. Has Leo mentioned this in any telephone calls to
Alana Green, Jumping Jack Ranch, Abbotsford,
B.C.: Good to hear from you, dear lady. Keep in touch.
Steven Lorenz, Ladner, B.C.: I have received
your letter and 59-page decision from the courts. I regret
I am unable to assist in this custody case since, as you will
note from my website, I have my hands full with wrongful convictions
and cold-case murders. Sorry.
Kathy Caughlin, Calgary, Alberta: It takes time,
dear lady, a long time. Hang in there. I just cannot wave
Peter Maxwell, Cumberland, B.C.: re gold-mine
murder. It's your call on the boxes of documents. If you decide
to send a few with pertinent info to me, please make sure
they are only copies. I cannot be responsible for original
papers. Good luck.
Brenda Mignardi, Picking, Ont.: Your request
for me to supply you with a copy of a letter you originally
sent to me more than one year ago is, I am afraid, impossible.
From memory, though, I can advise you were quoting some unnamed
source as saying that, on-air, I had little sympathy for the
plight of fathers who had lost custody or joint-custody of
their children. There is no truth to that statement and that
is why I asked for attribution to a specific person who made
those comments. Does that help ?
Mrs. Theresa Zabolotny, Winnipeg, Manitoba: While
I sympathize with all the pain and discomfort you have experienced,
ma'am, I am not an expert in injuries caused by automobile
accidents...particularly those going back 14 years. Your only
choice at this stage of the game, it seems to me, would be
to consult a lawyer...however, I fear you may have passed
the statute of limitations. Sorry.
Dan Frohman, Suffolk, Virginia: Sorry, I am not
the Peter Warren for whom you are looking; in fact, to be
truthful, I h-a-t-e-d summer camps !
François Brassard, Victoria, B.C.: Thank
you for the Roman Catholic Women Priests' press release and
invitation to the ordination ceremonies. I shall disseminate
the information. Good luck.
Al Krueger, Vancouver, B.C.: Good luck in your
new career. What led you to quit broadcasting ? Please say
"hello" to your family, including your parents.
Dan Cherrin, Caponigro PR, Detroit, Michigan:
What exactly did you have in mind re art authenticity investigations
Michael P. Cormier, somewhere at sea: Heh, old
friend, you can't keep a good man down ! Congratulations on
the new gig. Be certain to give me a heads-up next time you
are on the island. We will have another lunch -- and you can
pay ! Keep in touch. What is your snail-mail address ?
Colin McMahon, Winnipeg, Manitoba: To answer
your question -- no, re Facebook. Don't trust it thoroughly
re some of the most-sensitive information which goes through
Russ Avison, Wainwright, Alberta: Your comments
about the statement from MP Lukiwski 17 years ago are noted.
Your observation about judges is appreciated.
Aaron Vaccariello, Sheridan College, Oakville,
Ont.: Please see my reply (below) to the March 31 request
from a fellow student of yours, Christa Saunders.
Jonathan O. Wilson, attorney-at-law, Morrison,
Colorado (through Gerry Duffett): Thnx for keeping me informed
about the campaign to halt covert harassment and surveillance.
I would be most interested in seeing any reply from Senator
Patrick Leahy in Washington when, and if, it appears.
Kevin Brown, Manitoba: The "can anyone relate
to this ?" video was excellent. Keep them coming.
Charles I. Lugosi, Associate Professor of Law,
Ann Arbor, Michigan: I much appreciate your communication
in reference to possible assistance in the three cases of
Wrongful Conviction on which I am now working. May I contact
you in particular reference to the details, probably in about
one month's time when I have all the ducks lined up in order
? Best wishes, and am happy to learn
you enjoy country music and dogs. You m-u-s-t be a good guy
Keith Fraser, Victoria, B.C.: Good to hear from
you after so long...and thnx for your plaudits re my on-air
segment over CFAX Radio. Keep in touch and let me know if
I can be of assistance in any way in the future.
Christa Saunders, Sheridan College, Oakville,
Ont.: Thnx for selecting me as a possible interview subject.
Yes, I have been published outside Canada, and have broadcast
on the BBC and other networks abroad. However, all my work
in now archived at a university and obtaining a copy of work
ready for review in such a short space of time would not be
Katherine Pilotte, Vancouver, B.C.: Have received
your second e-mail and Word documents are fine. I look forward
to your snail-mail package. Thnx.
FROM WARREN TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED MY LECTURE AT
THE UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA FACULTY OF LAW ABOUT WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS
ON MARCH 27: Thank you for coming. I
trust we all learned a good deal from the relatives of the
three inmates whose cases I am now studying and who were on
stage with me. For sure, I believe the abuse of human rights
by keeping people behind bars for crimes they did not commit
is a far more important issue than whether we should nail
a picture of Queen Elizabeth on the wall of B.C. Ferry boats
Peter Maxwell, Cumberland, B.C.: Please keep
me completely up-to-date about the Kieran Daunt case. I need
as many newspaper clippings (copies) on which you can lay
your hands. The testimony transcripts should be available
from the B.C. and/or Yukon law library(ies). We most definitely
need a transcript of his statement(s) at the initial interrogation
if what you tell me about his requests for a lawyer are correct.
Colin McMahon, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Of course
I remember you and our broadcasts of "The Modsquad"
back in the mid-1990s on CJOB Radio. Sorry to hear of your
bad round of current encounters. Please keep me fully informed
of the progress of your fight against the feds.
Katherine Pilotte, Vancouver, B.C.: Thnx for
your letter about the suspected Wrongful Conviction of your
husband, Leo. It's a pity I did not have this info earlier,
as I was in Mountain Institution, near Agassiz, B.C., to interview
the subject of one of my current cases, Michael Tate. Unfortunately,
my screenware will not allow me to open your attachments.
Are you able to send them to me via snail-mail ? I also need
as many copies of newspaper clippings as possible (be they
good, bad or indifferent). If so, the address is on this website.
Once I have those papers and have gone through transcripts
of the testimony, I will review Leo's case and get back to
Leanne Jones, British Columbia: Please bring
me up-to-date about your inquiries in this case. Trust you
will enjoy Thursday's presentation.
Gordon Krumm, Vancouver Island, B.C.: Thnx for
your inquiry -- I will be speaking at the University of Victoria
Faculty of Law, Thursday (tomorrow) 7:30 p.m., (Fraser Building:
Room 159) about Wrongful Convictions and will have the closest
relatives to three inmates (on whose cases I am currently
working) up on stage with me, to make their points and answer
questions. Admission is free. I am NOT flogging a book, a
film, or a CD and I am NOT being paid for this presentation,
so it will be straight from the shoulder. See you there, Gordon.
Joy Kapusta, Vancouver, B.C.: Your query about
"The Papish" is one I receive more than any other.
Just scroll down this list of messages and you will finds
my answers to other radio listeners re the same topic.
Gladys Wachowich, Alberta: Thanx for your query
about the book re Family Estates. Unfortunately, it is out
of print. However, if you Google (Canada) "Family Estates,"
you will find a good list of helpful links. Hope this helps
Doug Stead, Project Snowball, B.C.: Doug, so
good to hear from you after so long. Please keep me informed
as usual. You work is SO important. If ever on The Island,
let me know and come for lunch.
Chantel A., Vancouver, British Columbia: Your
offer to assist my work re Wrongful Convictions and Cold-Case
Murders is appreciated. However, your spelling is atrocious
-- the man in question is Shane Ertmoed, not "Ertomed."
What does "coursed" mean ? What is your background
re asking to do "field work" for me ?
René Durocher, Stony Mountain Institution,
Manitoba: Good to hear from you, my friend. Can't you squeeze
your employer to pay the freight for one flight and one night
for my presentation ? I'd love to introduce you on stage.
Please keep me up to date re Jim Driskell. Best.
Gerry Duffett, Toronto, Ontario: Thnx for "Tomorrow
Is Not Promised." Inspirational.
Glen Thompson, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for your
kind comments. If you scroll down to a March 12, 2007, entry
on this page (addressed to David Pohl of Edmonton) you may
receive some help in your quest to find this recording. It
is on an old 33 rpm vinyl disc by the Irish Rovers. I trust
your heart is still healthy. You can also Google "The
Papish And The Prod," and then click on the very first
item, "I Married A Papish Girl" for the words.
Brian Houston, Vancouver, B.C.: Please do not
contact me again.
Thor Sandberg, Kelowna, B.C.: Thnx for your inquiry
about future talk programs (and your kind words about my past
endeavors.) I have given up regular programs and am freelancing,
particularly in the area of wrongful convictions for murder
(see Page One of this website). In that regard, I continue
to guest on several programs, the latest being the syndicated
TV show "Studio 4" with Fanny Keifer, and with Susan
Woods on "The Buzz" on CFAX-1070 radio.
Cec Smoley, Dominion City, Manitoba: Appreciated
your note in reference to Elsie Kolodzinski at The Tolstoi
Hotel. Thank you for taking the time to tell me about how
that grand lady is closing the doors for good. We had wonderful
discussions for years on-the-air. Please give her a kiss for
me and show her this message. Thnx.
Kelly Weiss, Los Angeles, Calif.: Wow, you are
going back years in the search for your biological father.
Ian (Whitey) Jackson MacDonald. I was fascinated with his
story when I spoke with your sister and did some initial investigation
and research with no results, outside of the Florida connections
about which we all know. I will mention your new search on
radio and TV in the near future and see if we can come up
with any new facts to assist you.
Darlene Mary Chidley, Ottawa: Thnx for your e-mail.
Your frustration with the lack of response from Minister Stockwell
Day typifies my own in reference to the Michael Tate case,
which I believe was a wrongful conviction. (Please see and
obtain a copy of his father's book, "Duped: A True Story,"
which is promoted on the opening page of this website and
for which I wrote the foreword.) Keep the faith and please
keep me informed. Thnx.
Peter Maxwell, British Columbia: re Yukon gold-mine
murder -- repeat: what is your snail-mail address and telephone
Doug Parks, B.C. trucker: You are absolutely
correct -- this industry is one big mess. And, nobody, it
seems, is willing to take it all on. See Page One of this
website and note my current area of investigation, but surely
there is a media person the Mainland who would sink his/her
teeth into such a story, n'est-ce pas ?
Peter Maxwell, British Columbia: Reference your
suggestion about me looking into the Yukon gold-mine murder
-- I will call you after January 1, since my plate is full
for the next 10 days ago. In the meantime, please forward
photostats of all clippings, letters, court transcripts, etc.,
you might have available. What is your own involvement in
this case ? Who was his defence lawyer ? Telephone number
? Thank you.
Dave Bentley, Bentley Computer Services, Central
Alberta: Thnx for your query about the "Warren On The
Weekend" radio program. The answer is on the first page
of this website, in the clipping from The Globe and Mail.
RBNexploit.blogspot - Jart: You have the wrong
Peter Warren, thus I am not interested in collaboration suggestion.
And, by the way, my mother always told me "there is only
ONE Peter Warren."
Sandy Butler: The Hatton-Mayweather fight should
be a dandy. I believe Hatton will win which would set up the
biggest multi-million-dollar re-match in many years. Incidentally,
put a few coins on Hatton's younger brother, Matthew, who
is also going places.
Jayne Aulis and 400-plus residents of Westwold,
B.C.: As you will note from Page One of this website, I am
now involved in only stories about people being wrongly-convicted
of murder and other cold-case murder incidents. However, I
would suggest your best bet would be to contact ALL media
outlets, large and small, plus Opposition Party politicians,
plus medial authorities. Please keep my up-to-date with your
battle. Best to Paul. Thnx.
Tams Robson, Manitoba: Re: your grandmother.
Scroll down to the answer I gave Susan Preiss, also of your
province, and others with the same query.
Can anyone help Stefano Boivin ? Hi Peter --
I am e-mailing for advice. I have just received a letter from
Revenue Canada penalizing me more more than $4,000 because
I did not report any income over the last two years. I sent
in my forms blank so they would figure it out, because they
always end up changing it anyways. If you know of anybody
out there who knows anything about tax laws, please HELP !
You tried helping me before. I am the guy who got shot in
Halifax, N.S. in 2001 and had to work with a bad leg to rebuild
my life. I have just written and self-published a book about
freedom and living your dreams. Can anyone help ? Kontikispirit@hotmail.com
Jim Mosher, The Interlake Spectator, Manitoba:
The person in question never worked with or for me. Period.
Oryst Myroniuk, consultant, Calgary, Alberta:
I agree with your comment, which was: "Over the past
few years I have e-mailed you on the topic of the Orwellian
Police State and the slippery slope on which the world is
now confirmed. Japan has just announced, "they"
will fingerprint and photograph all foreigners entering the
country. Here is the twisted logic of these globalists: 'The
new system is being introduced as Japan campaigns to attract
more tourists.' Peter: this is one more area of the planet
now off my travel list. Carpe Diem.
Matthew Rankin, independent filmmaker, Winnipeg:
Sounds like a fascinating project from a most fertile and
creative mind. Count me in, please.
Michael King, Escondido, California: As you will
note from my website, I am now concentrating on cold-case
murders and/or wrongful-convictions. Give me a couple of weeks
and I will conduct an informal survey of Canadian media outlets
about the interest in your case and the Princess Diana link.
Steve Dockeray, Milner, B.C.: Thnx for your message
Jack Hoeppner, Manitoba: Jack, you made my weekend.
Thank you. Please be certain to say hello to Cliff and Wilma
next time you meet in church. They are truly wonderful human
Richard Ross, Saskatchewan: Your CD received
intact, thnx. However, I am out of commission for four weeks
due to a medical problem. Will be back to you as soon as I
Bill Donaldson, British Columbia: re your query
about the Roberts Creek murder in the early 1970s -- are you
certain you are not thinking about a famous fictionalized
story with the same storyline ?
Marilyn McDougall, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for
your e-mail message. Please see my website (www.peterwarren.ca)
about my current work situations, I look forward to my wife's
reaction when she returns from her daily morning walk and
I show her the e-mail from another lady who says "you
have balls !"
Richard Ross, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: I am interested
in the case of your nephew's freezing death in 2004. However.
I was unable to open your tape of the interview on Windows'
Media Player. Can you send by snail-mail ? Also, if I start
an investigation, I would appreciate telephone numbers for
Sgt. Cox and O.B. Williams. Thnx.
Lois Lees, teacher, Vancouver: I really cannot
assist as I only cover cold-case murders and wrongful-convictions
for murders. However, that said, please keep me informed re
the sentencing of your son on the cocaine rap and we will
Derek McIver, Vancouver, B.C.: I aired a number
of programs about restorative justice, particularly in regard
to DUI cases. The spot you recalled about the drunk driver
who telephoned me and broke down while telling us about the
time he killed that little boy after an office Christmas party
was one of the most emotional, heart-breaking calls I ever
received in more than 30 years of broadcasting. I followed
up on that call -- the driver, the man who called in, is now
dead. But, in repeating the tape around Christmastime every
year, I trust it had enough impact to stop somebody else doing
the same thing. I truly hope some stations along my old network
still play that item. Thnx for your views about restorative
justice...and thnx for remembering that specific interview.
Keep in touch.
Bjaremko (Anchors and Sails), B.C., and Beverley
Smith, Alumni, University of Calgary, Alberta: I could not
agree with you more re Employment Insurance and maternity
benefits. Please keep me up-to-date re this campaign. Thnx.
Susan Preiss, Manitoba: Hi. Feel free to scroll
down all these messages and you may find an answer. Back then,
I was referring to a product called "Skincap," which
is now unavailable in Canada. Best of luck.
Sandy, Vancouver Island: Thnx for your support.
Sorry, no set sked because I am strictly freelance. If you
have a specific topic-of-interest, let me know and I will
notify you of the station and the date.
Camille Labchuk, Green Party of Canada, Ottawa,
Ontario: Thnx for notification your leader Elizabeth May is
calling for a ban on shark-fin imports. I am now instituting
a nation-wide petition demanding prohibition of snow-peas,
'cos it hurts the parent snow-pea plants so much when their
babies are picked...also please advise whether we should place
a regulatory ban on sharks eating humans, off the coasts of
Florida and South Africa, for instance. Grow up.
Daphne Bramham, Canwest, Vancouver: Long time,
no speak. Your well-researched reply to Nancy Mereska's network
makes me believe you should take a law degree....in fact your
points #3 and #4 are issues on which I have editorialized
in the past. Frankly, Wally Opal is a most-decent human being
caught between a rock and a hard place. Please keep in touch.
Oryst Myroniuk, GLJ Petroleum Consultants, Calgary,
Alberta: Thnx for your input, however allow me to point out
I cover 113 newspapers per day on the web, including The Guardian.
Dot Fuhrman, from wherever: Get real. Get a life.
Leave me alone.
Manny Sobral, West Coast Boxing Promotions: Happy
to assist...good to see the pro fight game is back in town.
Michael Bellefontaine: Reaching Bruce Bowie...go
to my website www.peterwarren.ca click on "He Recommends,"
then scroll down to "Investigative Solutions."
Doug Stead, British Columbia: Good to hear from
you, mon ami. Your "call to arms" re the ludicrous
situation surrounding child molester Peter Whitmore was right
on the money. Keep up the good fight.
Nancy Mereska, northeastern Alberta: While I
have the utmost respect for your work to stop polygamy in
Canada (witness the number of times you appeared on my radio
program,) I cannot for the life of me understand why you are
now adding Mary McDermott to your list of campaign supporters.
She is a recovering stroke patient , a former president of
the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers' Association, who
is on a hunger strike to protest what she says the new rehab
now being offered is "inappropriate." Good God,
if she wishes to complain about the health-care system, a
hunger strike is the very l-a-s-t place to start...because,
excuse me, after so many days on a hunger strike she will
just become another statistic in wait lines for treatment.
With a hunger strike, she is contributing to the self-same
process to which she objects.
Chris Dubetz, Victoria, B.C.: Thnx for the compliments
about my latest broadcast. Please send a SAE and I will snail-mail
you a copy of the piece you requested.
Judy Shandler, British Columbia: Thnx for your
e-mail after my broadcast on Sunday. I will take your last
paragraph into account.
Stan Buell, Small Investor Protection Association,
Markham, Ontario: Good to hear from you, old friend. Please
keep me informed and onpass the press release re CFRS when
it is due for release. Thnx.
Shauna, Buster Wilson, British Columbia: Thnx
for copying me on your letter to the Indian Affairs minister
in Ottawa. I would be most interested in seeing reply from
Mr. Prentice if, indeed, you receive one.
Karl Albert, Massachusetts, U.S.: Thnx for your
update on the Jehovah Witnesses' stance re blood. Mighty interesting.
Brought back memories for me since I used to work in Boston.
George James Magus: Re Thomas Sophonow and your
vitriolic e-mail to me. Get it straight, buddy, Thomas is
a friend of mine and I am not the least bit interested in
your background re drugs or your rants about "I could
write a book." Instead of sending me stupid e-mails,
write your book but, before you do, I suggest you learn to
Frank Wagner (firstname.lastname@example.org): First off,
I am not one of your "friends." Secondly, please
take me off your biased, so-called "monthly missive"
or I will contact your ISP.
Sheila Sims, Melville, Saskatchewan (re the Leon
Walchuk case): As per your request, feel free to e-mail or
snail-mail me your "point of view," as you say.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Melissa & Greg Gibbons, Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Thnx for the copy of your letter to Prime Minister Harper
re the Washington State pervert who has re-opened his website
from Montreal hoping to find little girls with whom, he says,
he could have "consensual, loving sex." Please keep
me updated should you receive an answer from the PMO and/or
O'Reilly at Fox News. People like you should be applauded
across the country for standing up to be counted.
Dianna, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Re psoriasis. Please
scroll down all these messages to my reply, also to a lady
from your city, on Feb. 9. Good luck to your daughter.
Oryst Myroniuk, Calgary, Alberta: Your disgust
at the U.K. plan to run a police-state-style program of "learning
diaries" to be filled in by parents about their children
is akin to another news story, also from the U.K., today about
taxpayer-funded personal trainers being sent into prisons
to coach obese inmates, including killers, because they are
laughed at by other cons.
Paul Knobel, Amity, Oregon: Thnx for your kind
offer of technical support and, yes, we have looked at network
broadcasts from my home. However, I am up-to-my-neck with
investigative cases into wrongful convictions and cold-case
murders, it's just not possible at this time.
Kevin Brown: Ah, but you are a cruel man, Kevin.
Yes, the "Remember When" list brought back memories,
but also served as a reminder about how old we both are getting,
Suan H. Booiman, White Rock, B.C.: Thnx for your
e-mail, but I am not about to give publicity to any organizations
promoting the break-up of my country. I invite you to pay
attention to the last sentence of my reply to Kenneth T. Tellis.
Kenneth T. Tellis, @gmail.com: Get real. You
are either Canadian or not. There are no options. Your so-called
Western Independence is a pipe-dream. Please do not e-mail
any more garbage.
Roz Prober, Beyond Borders Inc., Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Wally Oppal is an extremely-decent human being, as well as
being an honest member of the bench and, now, a senior member
of government. Unfortunately, in my view, his hands are tied
in reference to polygamy in Bountiful, B.C., because the feds
and RCMP are afraid to act because of the fear of being hit
with lawsuits claiming "freedom of religion" and
constitutional rights being dumped upon.
Lisa Anderson, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Re your request
for assistance in investigative people-tracking --- why have
you not called WPS, why have you not called the last-name
search results you found on Canada 411 ? And, even if you
find him, there is no definite rule which would force him
to attend court. I can find him, anywhere in the country,
for a fee. Let me know.
Sandy Butler, God Know's Where. Canada: Your
comments are excellent. See my comments to good friend and
boxing-friendly buddy Jeff Aldus (below). He knows whereof
he speaks. E-Mail him,..and both of you share your thoughts
with me. Whisper, whisper (oh, now from whom, Sandy) -- If
I had a buck, it would be on Mayweather But, then, I am only
a former pro boxer and now currently a judge....so's I cannot
Jeff Aldus, Vancouver, B.C.: De La Hoya or Mayweather:
I am not running any money on this one. It is, as your excellent
summation points out, a "coin toss." Maybe, as has
happened a few times in the past, a good, smarter little guy
beats a bigger guy. Are you betting this ? Miss you and please
say "hi" to the poet.
Rev. Kevin D. Annett/Eagle Strong Voice, Nanaimo,
B.C.: Thnx for including me in the list of recipients of your
strong letter to Indian Affairs Minister Jim Prentice in Ottawa
re the latest pathetic attempt to cover-up the deaths of residential
school children. Please make certain you keep me abreast of
any reply from the federal minister.
Monica Kurtz, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for your
update about psoriasis.
Lorne Ridgway, Avonlea, Saskatchewan: As you
are aware, I editorialized against the Canadian Wheat Board
monopoly for years and truly admired and supported the farmers
who were actually jailed. Such is Canadian democracy ! I suggest
if you can prove people are lying about you then, instead
of merely replying in letters-to-the-editor, you file a defamation
and/or libel suit. Let me know.
Joe Tassone. Jack Patch Films: Aside from suggesting
you are "a huge fan" of my work, allow me to point
out you have the wrong Peter Warren. I have absolutely no
idea about what you speak when you mention a "lighting
clip" or videography, etc. Good luck in your quest, but
remember there is only one real Peter Warren !
Joseph Haywood, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Received
your message re L.L. and will expect his call sometime today.
I will be in most of the day, except for a quick trip to the
bank. So, please advise him to call back in one hour if there
is no answer or leave a voice-mail message for me. Joe, I
have already been in contact with two highly-experienced RCMP
officers, both friends, Independently of each other, they
both made the same point: that the DNA sample, despite his
background and the murder rap of so long ago, may have absolutely
nothing to do with the original case. In fact, a sample may
work in LL's favor...removing him from any list of suspects
in a completely-different case. Worth thinking about. I will
investigate. Take care.
D'Arcy Surrette, Sardis, B.C.: Thnx so much for
your lovely note. You say you miss me, but not as much as
I miss listeners like you. Take care. Look after yourself.
Keep in touch.
Bev Eastcott, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for your
message about the FASlink (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder)
promotional horse ride across Canada this summer. I will do
my best to get the word out on radio and in print. Please
bring all of us up-to-date about the condition of the two
boys you are raising.
Wayne Bennink ("King Richard"), Winnipeg,
Manitoba: Thnx for your e-mail. I remember you well. You can
reach Red Alix at 204-864-2545. If you call him and/or Cathy,
please pass on best regards from gabi and myself and ask him
how many basements he has saved since being a volunteer fireman
Bill Kushniryk, Manitoba: Your e-mail "drugs
-- amen to this" is quaint, but so far out in left field
it is ludicrous (incidentally, it has been on the internet
for 10 years at least.). Of course there was a drug problem
"when you were growing up"...only it was hidden.
Go read Charles Dickens. You want to go back to the days of
slavery, when cocaine was legal, etc., etc. "If we reverted
back to the methods used by our parents," you say. Bah,
humbug, I say.
Frank Wagner, Nanaimo-Alberni Christian Heritage
Party: I do not wish to receive any more of your organization's
bigoted press releases. And, in the meantime, you might check
your entire membership and ask whom had sex before the age
of 18. Of course, everybody would say: "not me,"
and half of them would be liars.
Joe Hueglin, Niagara Falls, Ontario: Please remove
me immediately from the kind of postings you continue to shove
onto my website e-mail. This is the second request that you
do not bother me, or people on this website, with your meanderings
-- scroll down and see my earlier message to you in February.
Either you cease and desist, or I call your IP.
Janet & Joe Haywood, Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Thnx for keeping me up-to-date re the tragic way in which
the case of Master Cpl. Robbie Fraser is being handled in
the most unfortunate, accidental shooting death of Master
Cpl. Jeffrey Walsh. I agree with your stance on this issue,
and echo the comments of MP Bill Blaikie.
Randy Northwood, Manitoba: Re your comments about
Conrad Black and your closing sentence "I will feel much
better if his lordship gets what he deserves." Perhaps
we should await the trial verdict...after all everyone is
innocent until proven guilty. However, what turns my crank
is the fact he tossed in Canadian citizenship for a title
in a foreign country -- and now he wants Canadian citizenship
back again ! That, to me, is playing fast and loose with an
honor I hold most dear -- citizenship in the best country
on the face of the earth.
Nancy Wray, Alberta: Please do not send me any
more of the bigoted, biased nonsense you passed on in two
e-mails today. They have been on the web for more than 10
years, they are outdated, unfunny, incorrect and just plain
Kathy Rowbotham, Vancouver Island: Unfortunately,
in going through my files, I failed to find any details on
the death of the person in question. I note that the spelling
of the last name is different, albeit similar, to your own.
Is this a mistake on somebody's part ? Since the 2006 message
on my website mentioned the Schindlers of Nanaimo, B.C., I
checked "Canada 411" on Google and note there are
only two Schindlers in that community. Why not telephone them
both ? Please keep in touch. My papers are stored every year
in university archives and, with some arm-bending, perhaps
we will have to access the original letter there. How did
she die ?
Geoffrey Lawrence, London, England; Geoff (Digger)
Kenney, Australia: Thnx to all for responses to my little
article in the OR magazine.
Walter Whyte, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Scroll down
and read all the messages on this page and you will find an
answer to your query about psoriasis because so many people
have asked the same questions you posed today.
David Pohl, Edmonton, Alberta: Thnx for your
kind words. The record you are seeking which I played for
years every St. Patrick's Day was on a limited edition of
an old vinyl LP by The Irish Rovers. I cannot recall the title.
However, I am in contact with Will Millar, who is still performing,
and will ask him next time our paths cross, then file the
info with you. Your best bet, methinks, would be those record
sale/swap booths that are held now and again. If any readers
of this page can assist (the song David Pohl is seeking was
called, if memory serves, "The Papish And The Prod,"
) please advise me and I will onpass. Thnx.
David Edwards: You say you are "disappointed
to hear you are not concerned with fathers' rights."
To be fair, please supply the name of the person and/or agency
which suggested that thought and just exactly what was said
about my views, so that I may take appropriate action upon
which I can defend myself. Thnx.
Allan Chinnery, Alberta: To some extent, I agree
with you re fathers' rights and judicial orders.
Brenda Mignardi, Pickering, Ontario: I repeat,
ma'am, please supply the information about my supposed "views
regarding fathers," which led to your 14-paragraph missive
to me. Who sent you the information, what did the information
suggest ? Surely, as the condemned, I have the right to know
the name of my prosecutor and with what I stand charged in
order to defend myself, n'est ce pas ?
Keith Kristianson, Grand Prairie, Alberta: Sir,
I am not about to give you an opinion of any kind based on
a two-paragraph query via e-mail. I would need court transcripts,
personal interviews, et al -- and I do not work "pro
bono publico," because, like you, I too have to put bread
on the table and a roof over my family's head.
Mark Bogan, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories:
Your query about why neither an individual nor an agency can
assist with the fact you have been unable to speak with, or
see, your children for seven years -- in my humble view, a
matter for the courts. Why were they under guardianship in
the first place ?
Bill Flores, Oakville, Ontario: Get it correct,
sir. I retired from regular radio programming more than a
year ago ! Your insinuation (and I quote) "if your employers
are pressuring you into maintaining the status quo,...blah,
blah." I am self-employed, handling nothing but cold-case
murders and wrongful-convictions for murder. I refer you,
too, to that adage from The Old Sage seen in my reply below.
Hugo Aguirre: Your message to me calling me names
and then citing God was most unChristian. I was merely telling
that other correspondent I retired from my regular radio programming
more than one year ago. However, don't bother e-mailing me
back...as The Old Sage once remarked: "I refuse to become
engaged in a battle of wits with an unarmed person."
Elise Roberts, North Vancouver, B.C.: Thnx for
your report re "Feminism and Fathers' Rights," however
I simply do not have the time to respond to all documents
sent to me because of my current workload. Sorry. Also, please
see above messages which have obviously been sent in reaction
to my reply to Mr. Swanson, hereby printed below. Keep in
touch. I am interested in your work.
Jeremy Swanson, Ottawa, Ont.: Please leave me
out of your constant e-mailings with online attachments about
so-called "fathers' rights." The stories have nothing
to do with my work and are just a waste of my time, my energy,
and (sometimes) my printer paper. Thnx.
Martin Lesperance, Calgary, Alberta: Much as
I appreciate your good intentions and fond memories about
Kelvin Community Centre, life goes on and situations change,
my friend. Don't waste your time.
Chris Tycholis, Manitoba: re your e-mail about
" why welfare calling me a puke isn't a great story"
-- you've got it right, buddy. Get a life.
Joe Hueglin, Niagara Falls, Ontario: Please do
not bother me with your thoughts and/or news-item contacts
in the future. I am up-to-date with news around the world
and your bias is so blatant.
Carson Maxted, Kelowna, B.C.: You have the wrong
guy. I gave up my regular radio programs months ago (see the
opening page of this website) to concentrate on wrongful convictions
and cold-case murders. I believe you should seek the info
you need from my friend, Michael Campbell. Hope this helps.
Mike Stackhouse, Fox-FM, Yorkton, Saskatchewan:
Re the murder case -- I will indeed call you while I am in
Melville. Telephone number(s) ? Also, if you have not read
the newspaper column about my radio interview with Leon Walchuk,
please advise me of your snail-mail address and I will send
you a copy.
Buster Cat Thunder: I had already seen the story
about the claim in the U.K. that a model-plane enthusiast
who lost his fingertip saw it grow back after he treated it
with the extract of a pig's bladder. If you believe that one,
I have more than a couple of bridges to sell you ! Incidentally,
where are you located ?
Mike Stackhouse, Fox-FM, Yorkton, Saskatchewan:
Thnx for your inquiry re Leon Walchuk. Yes, I am investigating
this case and was on-air nationally with him just a few weeks
ago. In fact, I had a long conversation with him from penitentiary
just this morning. I regret, confidentiality concerns exclude
me from providing any further information, but I will be in
your province following this case in three or fours weeks
time, and will be reporting back. Keep in touch if you so
Ryan (Riain) Phelan: I have editorialized for
years about the racist (Irish are all drunks, Scots are all
cheap, et al) commercials allowed on-air, while certain minority
groups scream blue murder if they are put in such categories.
I agree with you.
Eileen Bechtel, Edmonton, Alberta: Thnx for your
inquiry and kind comments about my radio programs of the past.
If you check on the opening page of this website you will
find details about my current endeavors. I am, occasionally,
on air with Mike McIntyre, who is doing a fantastic job.
Larry Updike, Winnipeg, Manitoba (cc: Bob Irving):
Happy to hear you have finally seen the light about the Sweet
Science being the greatest sport in the world. In fact, I
once judged Duran but when he was well past his prime. Please
try the following: "On Boxing" by Joyce Carol Oates,
"King Of The World," by Pulitzer-Prize winner David
Remnick, and probably the finest boxing biography ever written
(later made into an A&E award-winning documentary) "Unforgivable
Blackness" by Geoffrey C. Ward, published by Alfred A.
Knopf, New York, If you do, I would be more than interested
in your opinions. Irving, of course, can stick to lawn bowling
Gordon Steele, Edmonton, Alberta: Thnx so much
for keeping me informed about the case of impaired driving
causing death and the judge's decision slamming the proposed
federal legislation to ban conditional sentencing for serious
crimes. You did not say how you feel, personally, on this
issue and I would be interested in your (and other) opinions.
Frankly, I do NOT agree with the judge, Let me know.
Monica Kurtz,, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Re your query
about psoriasis, your mother and your uncle. You are correct,
SkinCap was taken off the market years ago, although I understand
it is still available in Spain. I have found a great deal
of relief with a product called TARO (Fluocinonide Cream USP),
but I believe it is only available Stateside and only by prescription.
For you, I guess that means trying to find a dermatologist
in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Good luck. Please let me know
Charles Frohlich, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Your inquiry
re ancient common stocks -- that company is no longer in business.
However, if you Google, "Old Canadian Stocks," you
will find a variety of firms who will be happy to check them
out for you (and take a good cut !). PS: Are you related to
a George Frohlich who was a reporter while I was City Editor
of The (dear and departed) Winnipeg Tribune ?
Sheila White, Saskatchewan: Thnx for your inquiry
about why you no longer can pick up my radio broadcasts on
a regular basis. Please see the opening page of this website
about my current endeavors as a freelance investigative journalist.
Elvira Carlisle, Carberry, Manitoba: Re your
questions about the Leon Walchuk case. I hope to be in Saskatchewan
to interview him in the penitentiary in about two months.
I have made a note of your queries and will check them both
out. Thnx and keep in touch.
Murray Gadica, Alberta: Re the Leon Walchuk case
and your suggestion that I should move ASAP: I have made application
with Corrections Canada for approval to visit him in the penitentiary.
However, bureaucracy being what it is, these things move slowly.
Ally Gates, British Columbia: Thnx for your e-mail.
But I do not understand your question about why I do what
I do. My website provides sufficient info, n'est ce pas ?
Darwin, Eileen Madill, Manitoba: Thnx for your
inquiry. No, the book is still being prepared. But to answer
your first question about unsolved murders, please see the
first page of this website.
JoAnn Ingeberg, Manitoba: Thnx for your inquiry
re the Steinbach doctor and his research with MS. However,
that was more than a decade ago and, I regret, I cannot recall
his/her name. I do remember, however, that for some strange
reason, your province has more cases of MS than anywhere else
in our country. If you wish to follow this further, all my
papers and program notes are with the University of Manitoba
(Archives and Special Collections) and you might be able to
dig up the info you need through their good works. Let me
Evelyn Gilmar, Qualicum Beach, B.C.: Ev, thnx
for your e-mail. I honestly do not know how to answer your
query about polygamy in Bountiful. My work these days concerns
wrongful convictions. If your feel I can assist, please look
at my website: www.peterwarren.ca and respond.
Dan Melnick, British Columbia: Your letter about
my radio series "Where Are These Women ?" was most
appreciated. I remember mentioning your sister, Diana Melnick,
several times. I hope what is now transpiring will help bring
some kind of closure to you and your family and I am most
grateful that people like you recognize the small part I played
in kicking the investigation into high gear. Thnx.
Stewart Webb, Qualicum Beach, B.C.: Stu, re your
message about Robert Latimer and his application for day parole
in December -- frankly, I would let sleeping dogs be (that
is why I am not mentioning the website to which you refer.)
Any great rush to close down or alter the points to which
you object will only lead to more headlines and claims of
internet censorship, which Robert does not need right now.
That's just one man's opinion.
Albert Overwater & family, Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Both Gabrielle and myself send condolences on the death of
Jake. He was one-of-a-kind but, despite the great corn, Jeez,
he was not very good at picking the pony !
James Varga, Vancouver, B.C.: Kind sir, please
check the website (www.peterwarren.ca) about my current efforts.
Robert Werner, Vancouver, B.C.: Thnx for your
words about the "Where Are These Women ?" series.
Now that the trial has started, it makes all the butt-kicking
worthwhile and it was most kind of you to remember.
Wayne Leng, San Francisco: It's been a long time
coming, my friend. But, now that the Pickton trial has started,
I hope it brings some closure (if that is possible) for yourself
and your memories of dear Sarah. You were (and continue to
be) an inspiration to journalists like myself and I thank
you so much for the research and personal emotion you poured
out for the original series, "Where Are These Women ?"
on CKNW Radio in Vancouver. Our work (nor your love) will
have not been in vain. Guaranteed. Take care.
Elizabeth James, Vancouver, B.C.: On the opening
day of the Willie Pickton trial, thank you so much for your
kind words in reference to my work on CKNW Radio with the
series "Where Are These Women ?" You are absolutely
correct -- this is a most significant day for me. Thnx again.
Amy Lapsley, Vancouver, B.C.: Please be advised
(with apologies to Mr. Till) that, although I am tempted because
your kind offer of a first-born son who will be big and strong
and almost as intelligent as me, that on Monday morning I
will be ensconced behind bars interviewing my latest case.
Sorry. Forgive, please. (Hell, I could have used your male
kid to dig the Back Forty !) See message below.
Mary Daniel (and husband), British Columbia:
How kind of you...a) to remember re my radio series "Where
Are These Women ?" and...b) to take the trouble to write.
Thank you. (
Cameron Bell, Vancouver: Am familiar, of course,
with the murder/life Lord case, but nobody has asked me to
investigate -- at this moment in time. Sorry. However, I have
several on-going cases in which you might be interested.
Donna & Ivan Sambolec, Kamloops, British
Columbia: Thnx for your kind invitation, however please see
the Opening Page this website about my work concerning the
wrongfully-convicted and cold-case murder cases I am now following.
Motorcyle star Philip Till and the Gorgeous Amy
Lapsley (ex-CBC, just like my wife !),Vancouver, BC: Your
request for a Monday interview re the start of the Pickton
trial was most kind, but CKNW's own Stephen Smart beat you
all -- including Tom Plasteras -- to it. Smartie recorded
me 72 hours ago ! And you don't want too much Warren on the
air, n'est ce pas ?
Junior (Bob) Wilson, former MLA, Winnipeg, Manitoba:
Please halt, cease and desist from sending me any more e-mails
or snail-mail packages re your alleged case against all and
sundry. I have spent extensive time, money and energy in investigating
your claims down through the years and your latest pitches
just waste your time and my time. Please stop. Merci.
Lynn Soens, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for your
e-mail...and your offer of help in cases I have in your city.
Nothing at the moment, but I will be in touch -- promise.
Oryst Myroniuk, Calgary: Like you, I am becoming
more and more concerned into the increasing invasions of personal
privacy particularly, as you cite, the alarming U.K. report
that people seeking mortgages will soon have to submit fingerprints
with their applications. However, with identity fraud rampant,
where do you draw the line ?
John B. Parry, Calgary: Thnx for your e-mail,
J., however please see Page One of this website re what I
am now doing for a living. While, I recall the odd killing
within the Oil Business, I am not sure you'd appreciate being
called upon during my investigations, eh ?
Judy Taylor, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Your letter
re Crocus Funds and the administration fees you are still
paying. I suggest you go to Small Claims Court (you do not
need a lawyer) and attempt to reclaim all the fees since 1991.
If you get a good ruling, you will help yourself and many
others. Please keep me informed. Thnx.
Bruce Morrison, British Columbia: Thnx for your
e-mail, Bruce, re the "Eric Story" (drunk driver
who killed that little boy). Messages like your own give me
the drive to keep it being played year after year. Have a
healthy, peaceful, prosperous 2007. (
Ex-Rev. Kevin Annett, Nanaimo, B.C.: Congratulations
on your documentuary film, "Hidden From History"
winning the independent award in New York. Unfortunately,
Kevin, I quit regular radio some months back to concentrate
on cold-case murder investigations (see Page One of this website).
Keep on rocking the boat, my friend. And stay in touch.
Harry Chong, Vancouver, B.C.: I played and re-played
that particular call on-air down
through the years. This past Christmas Eve, I offered a copy
to my friend, Mike McIntyre, who writes and broadcasts about
crime. He, too, agrees with you about the educational value
(and the warning) contained in so dramatic fashion from the
man who left that Christmas Eve party drunk...and killed that
little boy. I concur with your idea to replay it for your
two sons. Mike still has a copy (email@example.com)
or you could retrieve it from the CJOB, Winnipeg, radio station
archives. If you still have problems obtaining it, get back
Joe Hueglin, Belinet.ca: Heh, Joe, this is one
of the first times I agree with you re the Chief Electoral
Officer quitting, and the Income-Trust probe, and the CRTC
boss. Wonders will never cease !
Prof. Jesse Vorst, Economics, University of Manitoba,
Winnipeg: Thnx for your good wishes. I have always missed
"mixing it up" with you, too.
Prof. Ian Stewart, Political Science, Acadia
University: Your question about Jim Walding reference the
book you are preparing -- regretfully, I do not have a transcript
nor a tape of that interview. However, you might check with
the University of Manitoba (department of archives and special
collections), which has all my papers and some of the older
tape recordings. You ask for my impressions: Jim Walding was
a strange duck. I never figured him as a leftie anyway. I
remember that interview well (before he brought down the Howard
Pawley government) mainly because I conducted a weekly 15-minute
interview with Premier Pawley. Mr. Walding was bitter about
being dumped as Speaker and then not being included in cabinet.
Most of ther callers expressed displeasure (and I am being
"kind" in using that word !) because I believe they
thought he was playing a personal game. On the other hand,
isn't that what politicians have done for thousands of years
? Please send me a copy of the book when it is published.
John, MM Group: Please see Page One of this website
for an answer to your question about my broadcasts. For instance,
I was on-air with Mike McIntyre for an hour last Sunday. Thnx
for your interest.
S. Sims, Saskatchewan: Re the Leon Walchuk broadcast:
I most appreciate your point, Sheila, and thank you for having
given both Mr. McIntyre and myself the benefit of your background
evidence. Please keep in touch, privately or publicly. My
snail-mail address, etc., and other details are on this website.
I only strive for the truth. Thnx.
Mike Stevens: Re the on-air broadcast about Leon
Walchuk: I believe your questions to Mike McIntyre are absolutely
valid and I hope you will share his answers with us both.
Todd and Tricia, Saskatchewan: Re the on-air
broadcast with Leon Walchuk: I agree with your assessment
of the forensic evidence.
Nancy Schafer, Saskatchewan: Re Leon Walchuk
broadcast: keep the faith, kiddo. And keep in touch.
Steve Dockeray, Milner, B.C.: Re the Leon Walchuk
case: glad you were listening. Always appreciate your input.
Feel free to call Leon's cousin (Murray at 1.780.288.0641)
Jerry Wilson, former guard, Saskatchewan Penitentiary,
Prince Albert: Re Leon Walchuk case on-air this weekend: Thnx,
Jerry, for your insight with your background. Please see my
messages below to Murray Gadica and feel free to give him
a call. That is an excellent suggestion I will pass on to
Mike McIntyre about the tape from the drunk driver who killed
the little boy. Thnx again.
David J. Comeau, accountant, Calgary, Alberta:
Re Leon Walchuk case on-air this weekend: Your comments are
most pointed. Please call his cousin, Murray, at the telephone
number given to Susan Gross (next message below.)Your statements
about diagnostics are most appropriate and I think Murray
Gadica would want to hear them. Thnx.
Susan Gross, Manitoba: Re Leon Walchuk case on-air
this weekend: Please contact Murray Gadica, who is spearheading
the campaign to have him freed (1.780.288,0641). Thnx.
Nancy Schafer, Saskatchewan: Thnx for your input
re Leon Walchuk and the testimonies you attached. I am ready
for the broadcast on Sunday (Dec. 3) and just hope we will
not be blocked from having Leon on-air, alive and well. His
story needs to be told.
Patti Scott, Port Alberni, B.C.: Rabbits do try
to pro-create even in winter, dear lady. Thnx for your inquiries
about my investigative services. Please keep tuned to the
opening page of my website this coming week re details of
a broadcast about possibly yet-another wrongfully-convicted
case, which will air next weekend.
Ted & Linda: Appreciate your tip re the Hitler/Freud
documentary. No, I have never used the pseudonym "Cedric
Smith," and would be m-o-s-t interested in following
it up if you can supply further info such as .... a) where
aired ? b) when ? c) producer's name. Thnx muchly.
Rookiee Revolyob: Thnx for your invitation and
description of your Podcast "Pedologues," however
my current sked is so full, I am actually turning down work,
Tamara Hisko, Jennifer Danker, Mitch Salvana,
University of Ottawa: Thnx for your e-mail re the wrongful
conviction of Steven Kaminski. Sorry, no tapes remain of my
interview with his lawyer, Hersch Wolch. However, if you look
at the opening page of this website, you will note I am full-time
engaged in cold-case and wrongfully-convicted decisions at
this time. If I can be of any other help, please stay in touch.
Harry Mann, Manitoba: Sorry to hear about your
psoriasis problem. As you know, I have lived with it for years.
Nothing has worked. I took another curve on the highway five
years ago -- and learned to just live with it. Good luck.
Josh Stevens/Indubitably: Your e-mail info is
in contradiction to the claims you made in your first snail-mail
letter. Forget the whole thing. I am not interested. .
Rick Duerksen, Hangar 14: Appreciate your recollection
of the many years I read on-air, "Just A Common Soldier,"
every Remembrance Day. I am familiar with the video, "Just
A Pittance of Time" by Canadian Terry Kelly. In fact,
let's use this outlet to remind all Canadians to look at the
production at: www.terry-kelly.com Thnx for your input Lest
Gordon Steele, Edmonton, Alberta: Re your e-mails
to politicians (copy to me) in reference to sexist comments
about Belinda Stronach, I thoroughly agree with your strong
views. PS: when are you going to get a hockey team ?
Jacques de Winter (Jim Carroll), Tigerlily, Saskatchewan:
Re the petition campaigning for a state funeral for the last
Great War vets -- I have signed and onpassed.
The Antouns Family: Thnx for your query about
radio stations that carry my broadcasts these days. Ever since,
I quit the regular grind and switched to cold-case murder
investigations from a journalistic point of view, I am heard
only on radio and/or TV stations interested in that particular
Bill Kushniryk, Manitoba: Thnx for thinking of
me and sending along that speech from the aboriginal chief.
Obviously, it could never have been delivered by a non-native
person. Pity it did not receive wider media attention.
T. Sandberg, B.C.: To answer your question --
I only broadcast now and again when the story fits.
Howard Skrypnyk, Winnipeg: Helluva year for you,
sir. Thnx for your best wishes. Take care.
Pablo, Calgary: The answer to your question can
be found on Page One of my website: www.peterwarren.ca and
thnx for your your good thoughts.
S.M. and/or Josh and/or Indubitably, Manitoba:
Am most interested. Can you use my snail-mail (# 6 - 1030
Hulford Street, Victoria, V8X 3B6) to preserve your anonimity
? The story to which you refer has been floating around for
years, at various levels, with various people. I will investigate,
if you can provide me with the necessary say-so on the quiet.
I will protect your identity.
Barb (Jacob Lucy): I am with you on your thoughts
about DNA being sought from the river. Guess we will have
to await the outcome of the murder trial(s). Interesting how
the farmland, despite the sordid background, is now worth
a small fortune.
Lorne Ridgway, Saskatchewan: Thnx for your e-mail.
Many Canadians agree entirely with you about consecutive sentencing.
You are in a much stronger position than most of us having
had two family members victimized and murdered. I add my name
to your organization, and ask other Canadians to view your
website: www.realjustice.info Best
of luck, Lorne.
Arthur Schafer, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg,
and Stewart Webb, British Columbia: My friend, the academic
Prof. Schafer is correct, but he neglects the oh-so-Canadian
virtue that we call "it" under a myriad of other
Deborah (Precision Proofreading) British Columbia:
Thnx for your sweet words, dear lady. Miss you, too. Call
me for coffee, maybe.
G.R. (George Ryan) Yannacoulias, Prince Albert,
Sask.: Please address your query re possible vacation-offer
frauds to former RCMP Inspector, now private investigator
Bruce Bowie at BWBowie@DCCnet.com and mention that I suggested
you contact him. Thnx.
Bob Resch, Vancouver, B.C.: Please see the opening
page of my website www.peterwarren.ca re my current activities.
Broadcasting is now strictly on a freelance basis, mostly
national. Thnx for your kind words.
Charlie and Rose Sciberras, Manitoba: Congratulations,
after such a long battle, in having Peter Kawulia's name added
to the Hall of Fame. Much deserved. I hope this message reaches
you through Linda Mitchell.
Ralph Hibbs, B.C.: Thnx for your support as a
listener to CKNW in the past. I am now on radio, TV and in
some newspapers on a freelance basis. For a direct answer
to your query, please see the opening page of my website:
Larry Weber, Weber Commodities, Saskatchewan:
Ted Farr kindly onpassed your message. Why was it rejected
(to which e-mail address) when you originally forwarded it
? In regards to the content, I am fully aware of the CWB cover-up
and, as you know, I campaigned against them for years. Keep
Barry Berger, Alberta: Much as I support your
work of drug-rehab for Teen Challenge, please see my website:
www.peterwarren.ca about my newest endeavor. Thnx.
Diane Wattling, B.C.: Simply, I have not been
asked and no contracts have been signed for my investigation
of the Khamis murder in June to which you refer.
Carol, NewsWatch, Saskatchewan: Hi, sweet lady,
A joy to hear from you. Please see my website: www.peterwarren.ca
for an answer to your question. Keep in touch.
Bob and Elva Corbin, Winnipeg: The Spanish product
for psoriasis I mentioned on-air many years ago was banned
by federal health authorities in Ottawa a few months later
I believe because of the steroid content. Sorry.
John Walmsley, Winnipeg: Your point about gambling
and leaders of major religious sects is an excellent issue,
be it a small church hall bingo or a major lottery. Why not
pitch leaders in your own community ?
Joan Thorogood, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Your issue
on "separate-gender psychiatric wards" in my estimation
is absolutely legitimate. If you care to set up a website
devoted to same, I will do my best to publicize it.
Billy Franklin, Brooks, Alberta: Please see my
website: www.peterwarren.ca for the answer to what I am doing
Gary G., Alberta: Thnx for your good thoughts.
Michele Myers, Calgary, Alberta: Thnx for your
kind wishes. Please continue to visit this website and listen
for updates on radio, TV and in print about cases on which
I am working.
The Schindlers, Nanaimo, B.C., and formerly Winnipeg,
Manitoba: I have added the death of Dorothy Rowbottom to my
list. However, please be advised that I now have more than
20 cold-case issues on my plate right now.
Alison McCoubrey, Kelowna, B.C.: Please see Page
One of my website: www.peterwarren.ca for an answer to you
Brian Crow, Pittsburgh, Penn.: Re Gary Barbour's
amateur-radio-operator story: I have the FCC statement being
sent tomorrow. The suggestion that "many Americans are
discussing boycotting Canadian goods, etc." is ludicrous
in the extreme. However, I will judge it as news story. Your
input is helpful. Thnx.
Derrick Corr, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta: Your
wishes for a "truly joyful life" made my day. Thnx.
K.G. (Gary) Barbour, Manitoba: Appreciate your
news tip re the radio operator. I am following it up. .
Lauren Fraser, Vancouver, B.C.: Please see Page
One of this website for an explanation of what I am now doing.
Edith Wallace: Re the study guides: Google "Prof.
Bernie" under the Canadian search engine.
Sandy Leider, Montreal: Unclaimed bank accounts.
Google "Bank of Canada" and go from there. Good
Rupi Kahlon, Edmonton: Please see opening page
of my website: www.peterwarren.ca for an explanation. Thnx
for your kind words.
A. Wilson, British Columbia: Your recollections
re Zoloft fit right in with much of the research I am turning
up today re another case. Thnx for sharing. Unfortunately,
I am too busy with individual cases to deal in depth with
the Highway Of Tears...but, my God, like the Downtown Eastside
killings, somebody has to stand up and be counted for not
Ellie Thorburn, Salt Spring Island, B.C.: Thnx
so much for your support during my broadcasting career. It
means a great deal when you pinpoint the "realism"
I tried so hard to achieve.
Robin, Cal Bellamy, Calgary: Please see opening
page of this website to discover what I am now doing. Thnx
for your support while I was on radio down through the years.
Patti Scott, British Columbia: Do I now have
to write poetry for you ? Okay try this:
"Hurray, Hurray, the first of July. But,
if truth be told, I cannot lie: Rabbits in the sun may still
be boinking, but, it's so damn hot, I'm flat-out done and
only oinking !"
Dave Smith, Toronto: Thnx for your best wishes.
No, I was not fired. See Page One of this website.
Wendye Lowden, Vancouver: Reference your message
about food-bank rip-offs. I suggest you go directly to the
Provincial Ombudsman and report his accreditation with Human
Resources and Welfare departments.
Doug Toth, Regina, Saskatchewan: I am now doing
freelance broadcasting on specific cold-case murder issues.
See Page One of my website.
Rick Duerksen, Hanger 14: Thnx for pleasant message.
Perhaps your comments re the state of AM radio these days
should be directed to program directors and station owners.
Wayne Whiting, Nanaimo, B.C.: Re the Denise Purdy
killing -- am still awaiting signed contract from Cathy Tait.
Thnx for keeping me informed re your meetings with the RCMP.
Trust you noticed the news story this week that RCMP in B.C.
"vastly understaffed." This would indicate to me
that, much as I support Her Majesty's Cowboys, they do not
have enough money or manpower to concentrate on current crime,
and even less on cold cases. I stand ready to sit in and tape
(and, possibly, use on-air or in print) when Kelvin speaks.
Kurt Pyrch, Vancouver Island: Thnx for the news
tip re the ferry sinking. Am checking facts right now. Keep
Geoff Martin, Calgary, Alberta: Not retired,
Geoff, and thnx for your compliments. See Page One of my website
for the explanation.
Wayne Whiting, Nanaimo, B.C.: I have sent Cathy
Tait a series of questions and a contract re the Denise Purdy
killing. Please keep me informed of your meeting with RCMP
and co-operate with Cathy in filling in some blanks. Thnx.
Nancy Mereska, Two Hills, Alberta: Good to hear
from you Nancy and the great work against polygamy you do.
Please see my website: www.peterwarren.ca about my new endeavors.
Am still broadcasting, albeit freelance. Keep in touch
Hannele Davidson, British Columbia: There are
two sites I would suggest -- http://www.broadleft.org/leftcomm.htm
or http://www.niagara.com/~freedom/anticom/first.htm (note
the sign before "freedom" is a squiggle, top right
handside of your keyboard, not a hyphen). Hope that helps.
Let me know.
The Antouns Family: Thnx for that suggestion
re Zoloft. I have onpassed it my webmaster, Sexy-George (see
his pic at bottom of page one of the website). Because of
your interest, may I recommend the book, "You Be The
Jury," as promoted on the opening page of the same website.
Debbie Sibley, Alberta: Yes, I can investigate
your brother's case. Please send me your snail-mail address
and I will forward a questionnaire and a contract. I need
to know the name of his legal defence team, plus names and
addresses of ALL family members who testified. Thnx.
Colleen & Mojdeh, Edmonton, Alberta: Please
see my new website:www.peterwarren.ca
(May 30, 2006).
June Reid, Edmonton, Alberta: Hey, girl, thnx.
See my new website and get the book, "You Be The Jury."
Big Mike Mikulla, Winnipeg, Manitoba: Thnx for
the memories, particularly about listening to me when you
were having your diapers changed ! Keep this website booked,
as things are starting to happen on the cold-case murder scene.
Incidentally, you might enjoy the book, "You Be The Jury,"
which is featured on the front page of this website.
Rick Salt and/or Sarah Melsness, Nanaimo, B.C.:
No, sir, 'twas not "political crap, nor cheap pricks"
as you suggest. Thnx for the wishes, but please see the opening
page of this website to know why I switched careers.
Ed Tatarnic, Reed Deer, Alberta: You can only
now reach me on radio when I have freelance segments broadcast
about cold-case murders. Program times, dates and station
call-letters will be advertised on this website.
Bill Polachuk, Calgary, Alberta: Please see opening
page of my website for your answer: www.peterwarren.ca --
re what I am now doing (May 28, 2006).
Mark Gillespie, Wintergreen Learning Materials,
Vancouver, B.C.: Please see opening page of my website: www.peterwarren.ca
-- I will advertise when my freelance radio segments will
air and on what stations.
Diane Sutherland, Vancouver, B.C.: Thnx for your
reply, however the reason those names are up there is that
I am not convinced Hoffman was the killer. There are a handful
of men in Penetanguishene who should not be there. Let's keep
in touch about all of them.
Rita Ford, Toronto: Regretfully, any investigation
into your case will be unable to be undertaken immediately
since I am snowed-under with several cold-case murders right
now. If you are unable to acquire the services of somebody
else in the meantime, please check back with me in about six
Diane Sutherland, Vancouver, B.C.: The first
Wayne Leng interview I conducted was part of a week-long series
in 2000 entitled "Where Are These Women ?" on CKNW
Radio, Vancouver, which I am proud to say changed both police
and public attitudes to the murders of those Eastside sex-trade
workers from years of "oh, they're just junkie hookers"
to "heh, these human beings are being killed." Since
then, Wayne has been a guest in my radio studio and by telephone
on several other occasions.
Thomas Fahey, Calgary, Alberta: Please see front
page of my website: www.peterwarren.ca You might also enjoy
the book "You Be The Jury" featured on that page.
Just double-click the front cover.
Dr. Terry Polevoy, Ontario: Thnx, doctor, for
keeping me in your invaluable link re health fraud. Please
check "You Be The Jury" book (front page of my website,
re death-by-prescribed-Zoloft) which resulted in no-parole
life for a Canadian man, but conditional sentence for an Australian
man under the same circumstances. Your expertise would help
Ian Lloyd Pennoyer
(and others) from northern Alberta: Thank you for filling
me about what a 630-CHED receptionist has been telling inquiring
listeners (namely that Peter Warren "has passed away.")
I have been in touch with station management and would inform
everybody that, akin to the comments from somebody else, more
famous, along the same line, "reports of my death have
been greatly exaggerated."
Jim Belanus, Langdon, North Dakota: No, I have
not switched stations, just careers. Please see the opening
page of this website: peterwarren.ca (May 13, 2006).
Colleen, Village Travel, Alberta: Yes, thank
you, I am healthy and safe. Please see the opening page of
this website for an answer.

page of this website for an answer to your query (May 8, 2006).

Alberta: Appreciated your kind e-mail. You can find out what
I am now doing by going to the opening page of this website,
which should be of interest to you Jean-Marc.
Edward Rayner, Stonewall, Manitoba: I have onpassed
your queries to former RCMP Inspector (now private investigator)
Bruce Bowie. When on-air with him over the past eight years,
we often warned about this particular scam. Mr. Bowie may
get back to you personally, or I will re-send a message about
his experienced advice.
John & Karen, Calgary: Thnx for missing me.
However, I am still doing freelance radio, TV and print work,
but in another field. Please see my website opening page.
Patti Scott, British Columbia: Ma'am, you are
too old to consider following the rabbits' adage of "Hurray,
Hurray, The First Of May. Outdoor boinking starts today."
Sal, VCN, British Columbia: Thnx for those kind
words but, as mentioned in many cases below, I am on a new
career path. Please check my website opening page.
Elaine, Edmonton, Alberta: Stick with me, dear
lady, and do get in touch if you can assist with the serial
killings of sex-trade workers in your city. .
Doug Stead, anti-child-porn crusader, British
Columbia: Thnx for those statistics about repeat offenders.
Have you tried to get mainstream media in Canada to re-print
Jerry Pryde, Stoney Creek, Ont.: Thnx for your
support in my new venture. You have been one of the most-intelligent,
regular listeners I have had in more than 30 years on radio.
Enjoy your music...and, if you have time, (or any other viewers
to this page) give me a hand with Bill Fardoe's request lower
in this list.
Gordon McCann, Calgary: Thank you, sir, you might
inform your local radio station.
John Polson, Vancouver, B.C.: Get real, buddy,
do not dump on me re Telus service.
Kathleen Hogan, Alberta: Keep in touch, madam,
and thnx for your best wishes re my change-in-career.
Joan, Jim Kroplin, London, Ont.: Thnx for your
note. Marlene Truscott also sent me a personal e-mail and,
of course, I will keep fighting in support of Steve.
Catherine Ewing (with camera), Vancouver, B.C.:
"Big honkin' hugs" back to you, dear lady. Stick
with me, ma'am, this new gig will be up and running in about
Mike Whalen, Sheridan College, Ont: My telephone
number is on this website. Call me re the interview request.
Oryst Myroniuk, Calgary: Sorry, pal, that
one about the Utopian way of handling kids is an Urban Legend,
don't waste your time.
Bruce and Sheila Morris, Vancouver: Thnx
for your kind words. You sound like gentle people.
Brian Bishop, London, Ont.: Sir, tell you
mom to take a hike away from the scam being run by the company
which says she has money in the bank. Google: Bank of Canada
on her behalf and go from there, If you need extra help, please
contact me again.
Audrey Doyle, Victoria, B.C.: Thnx for your kind
regards. No I did not retire. Please check out this entire
Sharon McPhee, British Columbia: Thnx for your
remarks about my change in career. If you click on "Warren
Recommends" on this website, you will find Mr. Bruce
Bowie's address and website. He can better answer your questions
about whether he has followed up on that crime report.
Sheri and Barry Hall, Nanaimo, B.C.: Thnx so
much for your good wishes. Please see the remainder of this
Stephanie Kimpinski, Edmonton: Thnx to you, too,
dear lady. Again, please survey this website for answers.
Paul Berti, Vancouver, B.C.: Do not blame CKNW
or the Corus Radio Network. I made a solid, honest decision
(and I informed management) way back in late January/early
February. Yes, I would consider another radio gig somewhere
if this current endeavor does not work out.
Prof. Helmut-Harry Loewen, University of Winnipeg:
Thnx, old friend, for your support and the notation of the
slime-bucket notations that have been made against me about
a certain white supremacist whose name we will not mention
here because it just gives him the publicity he craves.
Patti Scott, Vancouver: You ask "how
does a person proceed with an idea for advertising with losing
one's ownership of that idea ?" First, do NOT fall for
the scam copyright ads on TV; secondly, never believe that
old wive's tale about "all you have to do to protect
an idea or invention is to send it back to yourself via registered
mail;" finally, snail-mail the idea to me (we have known
each other long enough) and I will give you an honest answer
Bob (Doc) Holliday, Winnipeg: Happy to hear
about your latest PSA results, sir. You should have listened
to me about impotency ! See my website (www.peterwarren.ca)
re answers to your questions about my future.
Bill Fardoe, Brandon, Manitoba: You ask about
a returning veteran named Richardson who went to his death
on the gallows. This triggers a memory with me -- I believe
he was Metis. I will ask other people on this site with information
to e-mail me. Meantime, try the Royal Canadian Legion.
John Beatty, Vancouver: You are completely wrong
about your suggestions re my change-in-career -- it was an
individual decision of my own, not as you seem to imply.
Karen Walker, Vancouver: University of Winnipeg
scientist Dr. Eva Pip would be happy to advise you. She is
Canada's foremost water expert and will tell you that, for
most areas of the country, tap water is as good as -- even
better -- than the expensive bottled water.
