    For Chris Horsely to Publicly Imply that a Polygraph Test Exonerated Jason Zailo is Absurd !! Where is the Proof that a Polygraph Examination Existed for Jason Zailo ?? Who Was the Polygraph Examiner, that can Verify Chris Horsely’s Statement ?? Let Him/Her come out Publicly to Verify Chris Horsely’s Preliminary Statement of Innocence towards Jason Zailo !! According to Dr. Phil, Jack Trimarco is the ” Top Polygraph Operator on the Globe “. I would Like to see Jason Zailo, his Brother, his Mother and Joe Desousa on Dr. Phil’s Show to Take a Polygraph Test by Dr. Phil’s Polygraph Operator, Jack Trimarco !! On Dateline, Josh said: The Task of Unraveling the Mystery fell to Police in Saannich, Inspector Rob Mccall Led the Investigation, backed by a team that Included ” Detective Sergeant Chris Horsely. In November of 2018 there is a Depiction of Chris Horsely as a Motorcycle Traffic Cop wishing his Daughter Happy Birthday. My Question, How did a Motorcycle Traffic Cop become a “Detective Sergeant” and how would Chris Horsely feel if He was not able to Wish his Daughter a Happy 20th. Birthday Where would Chris Horsely’s Priorities be then ???

    • Retired Detective says:

      Polygraphs are meant to be used as an investigative tool for law enforcement, not a way to totally clear someone from suspicion. It is not really important if a suspect is believable if the evidence casts suspicion. In this case, Lindsay said she knew something and was disturbed. She was planning on leaving Jason and Shirley. She told a lot of people and there is a witness who knows Jason was aware of her plans. Jason’s behavior the night of the murder is bizarre to put it mildly and both he and Shirley have been caught on tape making false/lies statements. Yes you are correct. Horsley is going to believe the poly results and disregard all this evidence. He is a true moron or complicit

    • Jeff Buziak says:

      The Head of Lindsay’s file at the time of the Zailo polygraphs was Craig Sampson who has since retired and went to work for the British Columbia Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner along with previous head of Lindsay’s file Ross Poulton and Rob McCall as well worked there after retiring from Saanich police. Craig Sampson told me at the time that the official word was, “The Zailo family have participated in polygraph interviews to our satisfaction at this time.” That’s it. What Horsley said publicly is what he made up and as usual is misleading.
      At the time of Lindsay’s murder, Saanich police officer and former Keg restaurant manager, Chris Horsley was involved in ownership of nightclubs and liquor licensed restaurants in the Victoria area and also establishing his trucking company and on his way to being a millionaire real estate investor as his house building cop partner referred to him as. Oh yeah, he was playing Saanich police officer as well. I was told by a media representative that Saanich police officer Horsley is Victoria’s worst kept secret!

      • Jeff Buziak says:

        Oh yes I forgot to mention that former Shirley Zailo boyfriend and retired Saanich police officer Barry MacLachlin(sp) also worked for the BC Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner.
        How it works in British Columbia is the more I disclose publicly the more that information is closed off to the public.
        BC=Bring Cash and you can have whatever you want. Real estate, mortgages, laundering, gambling, extortion, drugs and even murder will get swept under the carpet if you bring enough cash. It used to be Beautiful British Columbia (BC=before crime) now it’s dirty bc.

    The TRIPLICITY SHELL GAME in beautiful British Columbia, CANADA

    There is a triplicity of veiled corruption transpiring in the BC justice system that has evolved to a disaster and lack of accountability to the people being deceived that are supposed to be represented and served by the very Triplicity deceiving them. The safety of all citizens of British Columbia is at risk as a result. This Triplicity involves police, the Attorney General and BC Crown Counsel. The people and offices involved in this triplicity are all public servants and employees of the people but they play a shell game of deception and manipulation at the cost of lives and justice in British Columbia. Criminals know the game well and play it to their advantage while the ones who are supposed to be protected and have justice served, the citizens, are being poorly treated, mishandled, deceived and not served well at all by their own employees.

    Here is how their little shell game works to deceive citizens. Police are supposed to investigate and solve crimes by making arrests. However, in beautiful British Columbia Crown Counsel authorizes police to make arrests as they deem worthy usually based on best interests of the public (playing God) and their calculation of success at trial (lazy reasoning). Police can do their thing and be ready to go but Crown Counsel can hold things off for a myriad of reasons including they don’t have the court time for years and it’s not in the public’s interest (it was only a young woman. Who cares).
    Now the third to this shell game. The Attorney General, in this case the weak David Eby, is the ultimate boss of both police and Crown Counsel by The Constitution of Canada and Parliamentary Decree. However, he and his predecessors claim this to be true but historically and presently will not get involved with the day to day operations of police or the Crown Counsel office. It would be like your boss showing up everyday saying he is not going to be involved with what you do or the day to day operations of the company or business he/she is fully in charge of. Good job. Where do I get a high paying job like that? Basically the Attorney General is a highly paid circle-jerk talking mouthpiece of the government who is paid by and represents the people by constantly deceiving them. Makes sense right? Vote in and appoint an idiot to con the people he serves.
    Here is their shell game. No one claims responsibility and none in the triplicity are accountable because they pass all responsibility and accountability back and forth amongst each other and to each other while you, the public, are left wondering which shell you should guess holds the one responsible and the answers to your frustration. It makes you dizzy and crazy because you never guess right and that is exactly what they want so they can do whatever the hell they like without being held responsible or accountable. Who wins you ask? They do and criminals do.
    If you ask Saanich police why Lindsay’s case isn’t solved they claim they don’t have enough and Crown Counsel won’t allow them to charge anyone at this time. Crown Counsel will tell you they cannot tell you any details of the file because their isn’t a file as defined by them and refer you back to Saanich police who tell you they cannot disclose any details of the file because it’s all in the hands and discretion of Crown Counsel. Okay you say, lets go to their boss Attorney General David Eby. Of course he is a lawyer and all Crown Counsel are his alumni lawyer buddies so he is going to protect them. Eby refers you back to police because he claims he is not going to get involved in the day to day operations of Crown Counsel or the police (totally useless boss hired by the citizens) so there’s your shell game of deceit and deception. Who is under what shell and who is responsible. Where are the answers you want from your publicly paid servants regarding the disappearance or murder of your loved one? Which shell are the answers under? In British Columbia the answers are not under any of the three shells. The answers are hidden in secrecy by the Triplicity of secrecy of the three offices of police, Crown Counsel and Attorney General who are all not serving the public’s best interest and should be publicly exposed. Do you know that when I phone the Crown Counsel office they won’t even tell me who is the head Crown Counsel. That’s disgusting! These are your employees.
    This is my exposure of The Triplicity which I’m sure many families who have disappeared or murdered loved ones have experienced. This Triplicity wants you to go home and shut up so they can do as they feel and if you don’t do as instructed they will frustrate you to no end with their shell game of deceit and deception while claiming you are crazy. Good public representation right? Hire, vote for and pay people to represent you who try to make you go crazy while claiming you are and nothing gets done for justice for your murdered and missing loved one. Is this what the citizens want from their own employees who think they are above accountability and superior to the people they are supposed to serve and protect? This is crazy!

    Here is the simple truth about Lindsay Buziak’s unsolved murder Feb 2, 2008.

    1. Lindsay’s unsolved murder contains Highly Sensitive information above and beyond a normal investigation and the file is locked down in secrecy. There are very few people who have access to the file and Saanich, BC police will not share it with media, the family, capable private investigators nor give it over to a more capable policing agency. Saanich police do not know how to succeed!

    2. Saanich police claim they do not have enough evidence to arrest or go to trial. In BC, The Crown Prosecutors Office under the control of Attorney General David Eby has to approve and direct police to make arrests. So Attorney General David Eby, his Crown Prosecutors and Saanich police need to do more but they are not!

    3. Saanich police state to me privately that they are done their investigation. I was told this 3 years ago by Chief Downie when he reassigned all officers working on Lindsay’s murder. I was recently told this to my face by Deputy Chief Scott Green in the presence of Inspector Steve Morgan. They claim they assess any new leads that fall on their laps as to whether they warrant investigation or not but do not work Lindsay’s case full time or daily with assigned officers. Publicly they say cop talk b.s. leading the public to believe otherwise.

    These three things don’t make sense. If you don’t have enough you go get more, you work harder, smarter, bring in more people or you fire the incompetents who can’t get the job done. Not at Saanich police though. They promote people and retire them with full pensions. Some go work for the Office of the Police Complaint Commission while others focus on their side businesses while collecting their police pay checks or fat pensions with benefits while Lindsay’s murder drags on into the 11th year with no arrests and no suspects.

    Local media refuse to take Saanich police to task and no media in Canada seems to care much really. We have had two major USA TV shows and over five podcasts all done out of Canada. When I speak to local media they say they have to check with police and can’t upset the police. Saanich police call local media their media partners. This is corruption! Media is supposed to be informing the public not speaking on behalf of police. I ask them why they don’t check with me when police spew them the crap they report and ignore what I say! They won’t answer that question.

    Police claim that Lindsay’s file is active and remains a high priority with them so they look good in the public’s eye. They are going to announce that they are having another review of the investigation being done by the RCMP. It’s all con and bullshit folks. We should be the ones reviewing but we don’t have to because we know they have failed in their duty to us who they are supposed to be serving and protecting. The review will take months and cost a fortune. Any one of us could do it in minutes like this:
    Is the case solved? (No)
    How long has this been going on? (11 years)
    Have you named any suspects? ((No)
    What are you doing about it? (If information comes to our office we determine is worthy we assign an officer to look into it otherwise our investigation is done)
    Okay review completed.
    Conclusion: You have 90 days to make arrests or you are all fired and the Attorney General will be replaced.
    This is not rocket science like police try to make us believe. They get away with this because we, the people allow them to. If three thousand people showed up for the Lindsay walk things would happen. If ten thousand people showed up results would be immediate. Instead we all let it go except a select few and the Attorney General, Crown Counsel and Saanich police have no urgency to do anything that causes them any stress or extra work.
    It was only a girl what’s the big deal? Is this what we have come to folks?
    It’s only a girl. The Triplicity Rules?

    Saanich police are not capable of closing this case with arrests. They do not have a winning mentality. Attorney General David Eby and his Crown Council office are too spineless to move forward. Friends and family of Lindsay Buziak remain in hell prison, fearful, while the conspirators and murderers of Lindsay Buziak remain free as birds and Saanich police, Attorney General Eby, Premier Horgan and Crown Counsel collect their fat paycheques every two weeks and do nothing. The people want results from these public servants. Where is it? Why do the public tolerate this insolence from their employees Saanich police, Attorney General David Eby, Crown Counsel and David Eby’s boss Premier John Horgan?
    We need to hold all of these public servants accountable as the murdered and missing is on the rise in BC and all we get from these people we hire to be in charge of our safety is circle talk and manipulation. Enough! The murder of Lindsay Buziak must be solved!! Let’s start dismantling The Triplicity here!

      UPDATE

      Its very interesting the power we have now in reaching out to people with social media.

      Saanich police officer Chris Horsley, yeah the guy who showed up in Calgary with another man who they both refused to identify because they were there to intimidate and threaten me who is also head of Lindsay’s unsolved murder file, emphatically informed me that Lindsay’s murder trial would be held in Vancouver not Victoria and that a Crown Counsel member in Vancouver had already been chosen to prosecute the case that Saanich police were in dialogue with was all a lie.

      I just got off the phone today January 14, 2019 with Dan McLaughlin, Communications Counsel for the BC Crown Prosecutor’s Office. Mr McLaughlin, without mincing words, informed me directly that Saanich police have not submitted anything to the BC Crown Prosecutor’s Office regarding the Lindsay Buziak unsolved murder. There is NO FILE in the B.C. Crown Prosecutors Office from Saanich police regarding Lindsay’s murder.

      Stunning! W T F !!!!!!!!!

      What are Saanich police doing?
      What is Chris Horsley hiding?
      Why did he lie to me?
      Is my gut feeling Lindsay’s murder investigation by Saanich police is a cover-up and Horsley is directly manipulating the file and us true? Appears to be!
      WTF is going on there in Saanich police world?

      Saanich police Chief Bob Downie?

      Attorney General David Eby, Q.C.

      Premier John Joseph Horgan?

      I suggest all of you public representatives/employees address this atrocity of justice and get to the bottom of this matter once and for all. It’s outrageous how Lindsay’s unsolved murder is being handled by Saanich police!

      We, the public, demand a public inquiry.

    Well Judge you’ve been fooled, have you ever heard that a leopard does not change his spots? For anyone who is interested the leopard will be back in court in Victoria on 25Jan 2019 at 0930 charged with conspiracy to commit an indictable offence. Popcorn will be sold at the door, lines of fentanyl will be sold in the men’s washroom stall #1. The bathroom in the basement behind the high end stolen cars. Password for entrance to the bathroom is Zailo. Oh yah the fentanyl is cut with a health food substance called turmeric which is good for many things that cause you aggravation, once cut with fentanyl it helps you cope with society. Remember my house for sale in Vancouver, I just lowered the price by 20,000 because I am committing an indictable offence myself tonight, shit why have I been going to work for peanuts for all these years when I could be jerking around fellow humans and playing possum with the justice system.

    Jasmohan Singh Bains sentenced to 9 years
    .
    Yesterday, the following comment was received here and the Anonymous sender may have thought I didn’t appreciate it. Oh yes, I certainly did appreciate it …

    Anonymous said…
    I heard that it came out in court today that Jasmohan Baines received a 9 year sentence after having been found guilty of conspiracy.

    December 10, 2008 11:01 PM

    but because I had seen no mention of this event in the news, I didn’t know whether it was accurate or not, so I set out to verify the sources. Why was this important?

    As you may recall, Jasmohan Singh Bains was one of the “persons of interest” arrested as a result of “Project Everywhichway”, the raids on the Legislature. Bains was mentioned by Janet Winteringham in the Basi-Virk hearings in BC Supreme Court as follows:

    Ms. Winteringham said the defence was simply wrong when it stated that the investigation, code named Project Everywhichway, suddenly veered off course to target Mr. Basi, who was an aide to then-finance-minister Gary Collins, and Mr. Virk, who was an aide to Judith Reid, the transport minister.

    In fact, she said, Mr. Basi emerged as an early person of interest in a drug investigation that was triggered when informants told the RCMP that the arrest, in May, 2002, of U.S. drug dealer Cirilo Lopez had created an opening for a new drug boss on Vancouver Island.

    “The word on the street was that Jas Bains was going to be the person taking over,” Ms. Winteringham said.

    Mr. Bains is Mr. Basi’s cousin.

    That drug investigation identified Ravinder Singh Dosanjh, who was then a Victoria police constable, and Mandeep Singh Sandhu as other persons of interest. Both are related to Mr. Basi.

    So it was important to get it right, as to whether or not Jasmohan Bains had been convicted and sentenced to 9 years of imprisonment. It was important to know the charges, too … as in “conspiracy” to do what? And in the end, I thought it was important to show the reasons in very human terms for the 9-year sentence. After a lot of help this past 24 hours, I can now report as follows:

    Regina versus Bains File No. 127870C-3 took pace in B.C. Provincial Court, Victoria, B.C., on June 16 – 17 and 24-28, 2008.

    Judgment was rendered on September 4, 2008 by R.A. Higinbotham.
    Bains was charged with one count of conspiring to traffic in cocaine “with named and unnamed co-conspirators”. The named co-conspirators relavant to the evidence introduced in this trial are Blythe Vernon, Brahm Mikol and John Scallon. [Unnamed co-conspirator(s) could possibly include the secret witness now being shielded by Special Prosecutor. – BC Mary]

    The charge against Bains followed an investigation into the activities of the accused and his associates known as “Project Every Which Way”. Investigators employed a variety of tactics in pursuing this investigation including the use of surveillance, controlled delivery of money, and judicially authorized wiretaps and searches …

    “In the face of a significant volume of evidence, I am grateful to counsel for the admissions made and the well-focussed closing submissions, which assist the court in isolating the key issues to be decided …

    All other potential issues have been conceded, including the accuracy of the transcripts of intercepted communications, [some portions of this evidence could conceivably be heard in the Basi Virk trial. – BC Mary] all relevant particulars relating to surveillance, continuity of seized exhibits, the nature of the substances seized and analyzed, and the identities of those arrested. The filed admissions do not concede the identities of the parties to the intercepted communications but Mr Bagnall [counsel for the defendant] confirmed during the course of his submission that this was no longer in issue …

    The evidence against Mr Bains is overwhelming and convincing. It leaves me in no doubt that he conspired with those named in the charge to traffic in cocaine and I find him guilty as charged.

    And now The Reasons for Sentence

    Case Name:
    R. v. Bains

    2008 BCPC 261
    File No. 127870-C3
    Registry: Victoria
    British Columbia Provincial Court
    Victoria, British Columbia

    R.A. Higinbotham Prov. Ct. J.

    Heard: September 9, 2008.
    Judgment: September 11, 2008.

    REASONS FOR SENTENCE

    1 R.A. HIGINBOTHAM PROV. CT. J.:– I convicted Mr. Bains on September 4, 2008 of committing the offence of conspiracy to traffic in cocaine. The offence occurred approximately five years ago. In giving my reasons for judgment, I characterized the role of Mr. Bains in this conspiracy as follows:

    * Mr. Bains had sent 12 kilograms of cocaine for distribution, and advised at least one of his co-conspirators that he could probably supply as many as 50 kilograms per week;
    * He directed the operations of his co-conspirators in a broad sense, although he left the details of distribution within Toronto to (co-conspirators) Mikol and Scallon;
    * The evidence does not reveal the existence of any person to whom Mr. Bains reported, but implies that no such person existed;
    * Mr. Bains obtained the cocaine referred to in the charge through a cash purchase. He was not required to pass along any of the money he received;
    * Mr. Bains had the power to authorize or approve changes in the price per kilogram for Toronto distribution purposes.

    These factors, and the rest of the evidence taken as a whole, persuade me that Mr. Bains was the sine qua non of this conspiracy. He was the initiator, the driving force, and the chief executive officer of the trafficking enterprise, and he answered to no other person.

    2 These findings constitute significant aggravating factors. Mr. Bains contributed in an important way to the infliction of untold damage on human lives through his distribution of this harmful drug. When I refer to this drug as harmful, I do not just refer to its impact upon individual users; I also refer to its impact upon society as a whole. Cocaine is not a purely “recreational” drug, as it was once thought to be. For many years now it has been capable of transformation into crack, a cheap and highly addictive form of cocaine that renders the addict incapable of little else but the all-consuming drive to get more. It leads to property and other crimes which affect all of society. The crack addict is unlikely to afford to feed this craving without resort to theft, breaking and entry, or robbery. There is a trickle-down effect resulting from Mr. Bains’ conduct that hits the community as a whole.

    3 The impact of this type of offence on the community has led appellate courts to conclude that deterrence and denunciation must be the primary considerations for a sentencing judge. That is my starting position.

    4 During the course of submissions counsel made an effort to distinguish cases based upon the actual quantities and value of the drugs. In my opinion this type of analysis has limited utility once a certain threshold is reached. As it applies to this case, I consider it an aggravating factor that Bains sent twelve kilograms of cocaine to Toronto. That is a lot of cocaine, and if undetected, this shipment would have provided Mr. Bains with a cash inflow approaching $400,000, tax free. I consider it a further aggravating factor that he stated he was willing and able to provide up to fifty kilograms per week to a buyer located by one of his co-conspirators. Given the amounts referred to, the degree of culpability is very high, and no useful distinctions can be made by comparing this case with others where different, but also very significant quantities of cocaine were trafficked.

    5 Crown counsel submitted that the range of sentence for cases like this is between ten and fourteen years imprisonment, while defence counsel argued the range is between five and eight years imprisonment. Both made valid arguments in support of their respective positions. When I examine the cases brought to my attention, I see consistency in the stated approach taken by sentencing judges as regards the principles laid down by the appellate courts, yet there is a greater than expected range in the actual sentences imposed. Perhaps that does nothing more than exemplify the human nature of the sentencing process. No two offenders are identical, and differences can always be found in the circumstances surrounding the commission of the offence. Judges are also human, and the submissions of counsel may strike more or less of a responsive chord with each of them.

    6 I am grateful to counsel for the sentencing examples provided to the court. They provide a kind of standard, however broad, against which to measure the proportionality of any contemplated sentence in this case. Having said that, none of the cases fetter my discretion to impose a sentence that I deem fit, having regard to the sentencing factors set out in section 718 of the Criminal Code, and the penalty provisions set out for this offence in the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

    7 Crown counsel outlined what he considered to be aggravating factors in this case, many of which can be found in my earlier comments and in my earlier decision on conviction. Crown counsel wishes to add that a further aggravating feature is that Mr. Bains was motivated entirely by greed, based entirely upon his personal choice, and not motivated by any circumstance over which he had little or no control. I prefer to think of this as simply denying Mr. Bains a potential mitigating factor.

    8 In other cases, there is often evidence of the involvement of weapons, or violence, or threats of violence. There is none of that here to operate as a further aggravating factor, but the absence of evidence of those features is not a true mitigating factor either. I consider it neutral. The unquestionable impact of putting such a quantity of cocaine out on the streets is, in and of itself, the main feature of this case that demands a denunciatory sentence be imposed.

    9 Despite the offence committed against the community, and Mr. Bains’ key role in its commission, there are mitigating factors that must be taken into account. He is thirty-three years old, and has been facing this judgment day for almost five years, his initial arrest having taken place in December of 2003. He has no prior record of convictions. For four years he has been subject to release conditions and he has been compliant with those conditions.

    10 During the period he has been on bail he has taken the opportunity to attend university and obtain a business degree. He has struggled to maintain his marriage and be a good father to his son, who will soon be turning six years old. I am particularly impressed by the recent letter written by his mother-in-law Sharon Ridley as to the changes she has seen in Mr. Bains, and particularly with her comments as to the quality of his parenting and his obvious love for his wife and son.

    11 It should be noted that Mr. Bains also had a wife and one year old son when these offences were committed, and it most certainly cannot be said that he was then a good husband and father. What good husband and father would place his family at such risk by carrying on the business of a high level drug dealer?

    12 I accept without equivocation that Ms. Ridley shares my view of her son-in-saw Mr. Bains as he was in 2003, and she has changed her view of him as he is now. I unequivocally accept her opinion that he has matured into a devoted family man with legitimate aspirations for the future. Her opinion is also supported by his good conduct on bail and his successful educational efforts.
    13 Based upon the foregoing, and the presence of a strong and supportive extended family, I am of the opinion that Mr. Bains presents himself as having strong prospects for rehabilitation. His ability to reform is further enhanced by his intelligence and his entrepreneurial skills. While there is still a risk that these latter attributes, combined with his having had a taste of wealth, could plunge him back into the drug business, I think it unlikely, particularly given the impact of the sentence to be imposed.

    14 In order to achieve a balance to the various aggravating and mitigating factors that apply here, I start with the premise that the circumstances of the crime itself, including the amount of drugs and Mr. Bains’ lead role in its distribution, require not only a sentence that will convince him to never get involved again, but also a sentence that adequately reflects the community’s abhorrence at his cavalier wreaking of misery upon the less fortunate members of our society.

    15 From that starting point, I take into account the mitigating factors referred to above. They serve to reduce the sentence I would otherwise impose. In considering the case as a whole, I then look to other sentencing decisions with an eye to ensuring that the test of proportionality has been met. In particular, I compare the aggravating and mitigating factors in Mr. Bains’ case to those that appear to have been taken into account in the sentencing of his co-conspirators. It has nothing to do with whether I concur with those decisions. The fact of the matter is that the sentence imposed on Mr. Bains must have an understandable relationship to the sentences imposed upon those who worked directly under him within the same conspiracy.

    16 Finally, as a sentencing judge I must step back and consider whether a proposed sentence will have a crushing effect on the prospects for Mr. Bains’ reform and rehabilitation.

    17 The approach I have outlined above leads me to conclude that the sentence I am about to impose is the least possible that adequately reflects the sentencing principles of deterrence and denunciation. I have also come to the opinion that to impose a greater punishment would go beyond those principles and might crush any future prospects for rehabilitation. I sentence Mr. Bains to serve a sentence of nine years imprisonment.

    18 I have been asked by defence counsel to make a recommendation to the corrections department that Mr. Bains serve his sentence at the William Head institution. While I am convinced that Mr. Bains’ rehabilitation will be far better served with frequent and generous family contact, it is not my practice to make such recommendations, primarily because there are many other factors that corrections officials consider in order to classify inmates to which I am not privy. I am certain, however, that one amongst their considerations will be the findings I have made at this hearing.

    19 The Crown further asks for an order of forfeiture of the sum of $12,718.11. These funds were seized from Mr. Bains’ person and from his residence on the date of his arrest. I order that those funds are forfeited to the Crown under the provisions of Part 12 of the Criminal Code.

    20 In addition, the Crown seeks a fine in lieu of forfeiture of funds received by Mr. Bains during the course of the investigation. The value of these funds is known to be $242,170.00, and due diligence has not discovered the location of those funds. It is not contested that these funds were proceeds of crime. I have little discretion in this matter, and this case does not fall within that narrow discretion. Further, the ability of the offender to pay is irrelevant. I must also impose default imprisonment of between two and three years, given the amount of the fine. My only real discretion is in determining the amount of time Mr. Bains will be given to pay the fine. I therefore order that Mr. Bains pay a fine in the amount of $242,170.00 in lieu of restitution pursuant to the provisions of Part 12 of the Criminal Code. He will have two years in which to pay the fine. In default of payment, Mr. Bains will serve three years imprisonment, consecutive to the term of imprisonment to which I have earlier sentenced him.

    21 Finally, I impose a ten year firearms prohibition pursuant to section 109 of the Code.

    Thanks Mary. I don’t see any reference to basi in the judges decision on bains. i’m still waiting for the massive organized crime drug conspiracy involving basi and virk in the legislature.

    what i really want is to know more about the bc rail aspect. Another question, why was the part about bains kept silent until now? Maybe you could ask anonymous why this is so.

    So, we now have the ‘Reasons for Sentence’…information that, for whatever mysterious reason, has been in the ‘public realm’ for some time but NOT in the public sphere until now.

    How can it be that the first installment of this story, which was covered by Neal Hall in a quite extensive article in the Vancouver Sun on April 6, 2007 has not now been followed up with an equally extensive piece by the same author concerning the conviction of the ringleader of the little band of drug dealers?

    I can provide the whole of Hall’s piece about act I, unfortunately, the link to the story is useless.

    Another product of the ‘improvements’ wrought at the Sun I guess.

    No kidding, even if we kept track of only one Court House — checking their web-site every morning, letting others know — people would stand a chance of being able to attend.

    What I really, really wish is that more citizens could attend these courtroom sessions. We’ve seen how important it can be, when a citizen picks up on even one single significant point and tells us about it.

    We have this unique reporting system … all set to go. And no kidding, the world has never seen anything like it before.

    So it’s doubly appalling that British Columbians find themselves unaware of 90% of what’s going on in the BCRail Case, and left completely in the dark for 6 months about the Jasmohan Bains trial.

    What a kind thing that was, for you to speak up that way.

    Let’s hope that the good-part stays strong and that Jas can find a better path for himself and his family.

    I worry a lot about young people making poor decisions in the current economic crisis. If they had decent employment (not airy-fairy schemes), it’d be different for them.

    But I think we really have to figure out what to do to make the economy more realistic. To create satisfying work. And to re-build our society.

    • Robin says:

      I found this to be an interesting read. I hope you did too. It’s an older article but for those of us who have not been around since this blog was started I found it to be of historical interest to Lindsay’s unsolved murder. With Jas Bain’s new charge of “committing an indictable offence” again it is of particular interest to me. The judge originally said she “was impressed by the recent letter written by his mother-in-law Sharon Ridley as to the changes she has seen in Mr. Bains, and particularly with her comments as to the quality of his parenting” “ Mr. Bains has matured into a devoted family man with legitimate aspirations for the future.” Her opinion is also supported by his good conduct on bail and his successful educational efforts. What happened? The judge asked what good father and husband would place his family at such risk by carrying on the business of a high level drug dealer? Don’t snow the SNOWMAN please. They thought he was reformed. Oops. It is 15 yrs later so his son is 16 now, way to go Dad. I wonder what Grandma Ridley is thinking now? You know I checked on the Ridley family and they are a very old Victoria family with lots of real estate and land to play with. Does this seem as odd to you as it does to me?
      You know if Jas Bains was so reformed why would he not help solve Linday’s unsolved murder? Reformed my ass! He knows what happened in that house that night I bet. The justice system better not do him any favours this time. Did u notice he was even given special consideration in serving his time at William Head prison so he could be close to family since the judge felt “his rehabilitation would be far better served with frequent and generous family contact.” What bullshit, who are these people? Jas Bains, wolf in sheeps clothing is more like it.
      Why are the B.C. Rail documents sealed? Why is all this being kept from the public? C’mon Premier Horgan you said if you were elected you would open this information upto the people. Quit pussyfooting around with the people of this Province. Enough already. Expose the B.C. Rail Scandal to the people. Show us who the rest of the wolves in cheap clothing are, and that is not a typo. Show us who these money launderering, real estate, drug dealing, people are. Expose Gordon Campbell for what he is. Expose Christie Clark. Arrest the people who murdered Lindsay Buziak, the 24 year old girl who was snuffed out in our Capital city. None of you are fooling the people, you all look like the dishonest people you are. It’s time you and David Eby got together and tell us what happened. Let Lindsay RIP and let her family have some PEACE for Christ’s sake.
      What is Grandma Ridley thinking now?
      Here is a hint lady. A thug is a thug is a thug!

      • Justice says:

        Maybe the sentencing leniency was based on an agreement that sentencing would go easy on the Big Man Jas for keeping his mouth shut about what he knew regarding ongoing illegal activities like drugs and laundering policies in the BC Government. What the judge is saying in the reports is sadly comical and unheard of when sentencing a cartel Mr Big. He needed no protection and was not kept in custody. That tells me there was never any danger he would bring down the house of cards by testifying against his associates, drug dealers and government officials.

      • Retired Detective says:

        When you think about it, allowing a major drug dealer to walk free for years before sentencing and giving him a extremely lenient punishment for such serious crimes is evidence that the BC government protects the criminals when it comes to drug trafficking, bribes, murder and money laundering.

    • Following says:

      This may or may not be relevant but USA Treasury has just lowered the threshold for title companies to comply on information gathering on all cash transactions from $2M down to now $300K. That tells you that money laundering is now a smaller time business not just a big time business. I suggest an investigation regarding all cash purchases would be prudent for that real estate office of SZ. At least to rule out a huge motive for silencing a soon to be ex confidante. All in all, murder is rarely this complicated. It typically boils down to some irrational thought process on a primitive matter such as greed, love or revenge.

      • Justice says:

        Why would they do that when it will cut back on the tax revenue brought in by buying and selling real estate?

        • Following says:

          It makes no difference in property tax revenue. If you are selling 7 $299k properties for all cash that is the same tax revenue as 1 $2.1M property. The idea is that title companies dont have to track funds to identify where the cash came from. Now they will have to track funds for all cash deals over $300K. Used to be you could walk in with cashiers check, no matter questions asked where the cash came from. Now they make title companies responsible for sourcing the cash.

    This time of the year Kills me inside!
    Lindsay’s mom, her sister and I have been in prison for 11 years now doing hard time.
    When do we get parole from this hellish nightmare?
    Do you think Christmas was fun for us?
    Do you think New Years was a celebration for us?
    I’m sorry, I had to say that.
    I hate this state we are in having to manage; Lindsay’s UNSOLVED murder while Saanich Police headed by Chief Bob Downie, the Attorney General David Eby, the Premier John Horgan could care less. It was just a girl.

    Here is the truth about Lindsay Buziak’s UNSOLVED murder in its simplest form:

    1. Lindsay’s unsolved murder contains “Highly Sensitive” information above and beyond a normal investigation and the file is locked down in secrecy. There are very few people who have access to the file and Saanich, BC police will not share it with capable private investigators nor give it over to a more capable policing agency. This is the same principle as the still locked down BC Rail Scandal which cost Premier Campbell his job and BC taxpayers millions of dollars.

    2. Saanich police claim they do not have enough evidence to arrest or go to trial.
    In BC, The Crown Prosecutors Office under the control of Attorney General David Eby has to approve and direct police to make arrests. So Attorney General David Eby, his Crown Prosecutors and Saanich police need to do more but they are not! They could care less and pass the buck as many of you know.

    3. Saanich police have also stated they are done their investigation. I was told this 3 years ago by Chief Downie when he reassigned all officers working on Lindsay’s murder. I was recently told this to my face by Deputy Chief Scott Green in the presence of Inspector Steve Morgan.

    These three things don’t make sense. If you don’t have enough you go get more, you work harder, smarter, bring in more people or you fire the incompetents who can’t get the job done. Not at Saanich police though. They promote people and retire them with full pensions. Some go work for the Office of the Police Complaint Commission while others focus on their side businesses while collecting their police pay checks or fat pensions with benefits while Lindsay’s murder drags on into the 11th year with no arrests and no suspects. What these three things tell us is that there is a cover up going on or more effort would have been put into solving this case now or in the past. This is corruption at its finest and the highly sensitive information is protecting someone. Who? Who is benifitting? Police are supposed to be working for and reporting to us along with the Attorney General and the Premier. None of them are. Are you okay with this?

    Local media refuse to take Saanich police and the politicians to task and no media in Canada seems to care much really. We have had two major USA TV shows and over five podcasts all done out of Canada. When I speak to local media they say they have to check with police and can’t upset the police. Saanich police call local media their media partners. This is corruption! Media is supposed to be informing the public not speaking on behalf of police. I ask them why they don’t check with me when police spew them the crap they report and ignore what I say? They won’t answer that question.

    Police claim that Lindsay’s file is active and remains a high priority with them so they look good in the public’s eye. They are going to announce that they are having another review of the investigation done by the RCMP. It’s all con and bullshit folks. We should be the ones reviewing but we don’t have to because we know they have failed in their duty to us who they are supposed to be serving and protecting. The review will take months and cost a fortune. Anyone of us could do it in minutes. Is the case solved? (No) How long has this been going on? (11 years) Have you named any suspects? ((No) What are you doing about it? (If information comes to our office we determine is worthy we assign an officer to look into it otherwise our investigation is done) Okay, review completed.
    Conclusion: You have 90 days to make arrests or you are all fired and the Attorney General will be replaced.
    This is not rocket science like police try to make us believe. They get away with this because we, the people, allow them to. If three thousand people showed up for the Lindsay walk things would happen. If ten thousand people showed up results would be immediate. Instead we all let it go except a select few and the Attorney General and Saanich police have no urgency to do anything that causes them any stress.
    Their attitude is that it was only a girl what’s the big deal? Is this what we have come to folks?
    It’s only a girl. We need to walk!

      You do not need to be sorry for anything you say Jeff, and Lindsay is not just a girl. She was a beautiful, young woman on the cusp of a very exciting life, she was a daughter, a sister, a friend and a human being who was given the gift of life, no one has the right to take this away from her and the people who love her. Lindsay’s Mom, sister and yourself live a nightmare that no one should be living. Lindsay should have been with all of you celebrating the holidays. Everyone who follows Lindsay’s unsolved murder knows that justice has not been served. It’s very blatant IMO. Eby, Horgan,Gordon Campbell and Christie Clark and the rest of the people we ELECT to represent us have failed in their jobs.
      Good old Gordon Campbell, (loser) stepped down only to be moved into a better job by his buddy Stephen Harper. He did a favour for Harper with the HST and in turn the UK High Commissioner appointment was given to him. What a job that would be when he really deserved to be FIRED and RETIRED but not in Canada, here they get promoted. He was upto his eyeballs in the B.C. Rail Scandal, the police had been listening to his phone calls. He stepped down while his bags were being packed for the UK. Don’t think he didn’t lap the perks up there too. The London Olympics, 2012, Oh boy I’d like to see his expense account for those 2 wks. Can u just imagine. Yes the B.C. Rail Scandal is locked down alright and pretty much forgotten about as all our politicians probably anticipated and hoped for. They count on the public to just forget. I haven’t forgotten though, I have the best memory of my Dad and I watching the news right after Xmas 2003. The cops were packing boxes down the steps of B.C. legislature building. I loved watching my Dad’s reaction, I will forever have that look on his face implanted in my head. One of the last times watching him react to the elected hooligans. He said “When he sees what goes on around him he thinks he’s a GD genius.” Here we are 15 yrs later, 6 million $ that the taxpayers paid in lawyers fees for the idiots that admitted their guilt and only got 2 yrs house arrest. We still have no clue what actually happened. WTH. Talk about corruption.
      Before I close on Gordon Campbell……… Who knew this? this is a copy and paste from newspaper article dated June 02, 2016.
      Campbell and other participants at the one-day London summit declared that corruption should be exposed, pursued and punished, and that those who have suffered should be fully supported. “Corruption should be driven out — wherever it may exist,” said the summit’s declaration.
      16 June, 2016-another article
      In a Global Declaration Against Corruption, participants agreed on three key actions: exposing corruption and ensuring there is nowhere to hide; pursuing and punishing the corrupt and supporting those who have suffered from corruption; and driving out corruption, wherever it exists. On exposing corruption, the Declaration urges, inter alia: increasing the transparency of government budgets, tax information and procurement to deter tax evasion and expose the misuse or theft of taxpayer money; ending the misuse of anonymous companies to hide the proceeds of corruption; driving out those who hide the proceeds of corruption; and making it easier for people to report corruption without fear of reprisal.

      Lucky for all us Canadians we had Gordon Campbell right there in the UK so he could attend this summit and what a difference it has made! Have you noticed? Who’s bullshitting who? Was he hungover from Martini’s and sleeping?

      Speaking of corruption, I don’t doubt for 1 second that Lindsay’s unsolved murder has been shut down the same way the B.C. Rail scandal has. The SPD and our elected politicians are protecting criminals. What else could it be? They treat Jeff like he is the problem, Hhheeellloooooo in there policeman his daughter was viciously murdered! Why do they try to intimidate Jeff? Why have they told him there is a hit on his life? The police and politicians are the ones who need to be held to task here not the father of a murdered young lady. The cops act like bullies, who wouldn’t be asking them the same question if they were in that horrendous situation. Any parent who can still think is entitled to ask questions and expect answers AND be treated with RESPECT. Who and the F do these cops think they are? We the taxpayer pay them ffs. Why when we send eml after eml to our politicians do we get an immediate nonsensical reply. Have any of us ever heard directly from Chief Downie, David Eby, John Horgan, Mike Farnsworth, Justin Trudeau, the Mayor of Saanich, the OPCC, the Saanich Police Board? I know how many emls I have sent and I have never heard from anyone of them. Would you not think one of us might have been contacted in the last year. They don’t care. They want us to get lost so Lindsay’s murder can fade away and the corruption that surrounds Lindsay’s murder may never be brought to the attention of the Canadian people. The wimpy politicians and tainted police will not be held accountable. Who’s making them tow the line? How can we arrive at any other conclusion, it is that obvious IMO. We are being sold a bill of goods here. This isn’t the kind of world my parents wanted for me, this isn’t the kind of world I want to live in or that I want anyone else living in. It’s out of control and we need to start speaking up. If they won’t speak to us then the next thing we have is to UNITE for Lindsay’s Walk for Justice on Feb. 02,2019. If you care you’ll be at the walk, we cannot accept the status quo.

  11. Mark Roush says:

    I have heard Police Departments Announce “COLD CASES” at 8 months, 1 Year, ETC. The SAANNICH POLICE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES !!!

    • Jeff Buziak says:

      The reality is they could care less. They are all about looking good so they give their “media partners” lip service and their media partners spew it regardless of what I say. The police focus more on attacking and trying to intimidate me than they do on solving Lindsay’s murder because I hold them accountable and it “doesn’t look good”.
      I was recently in Victoria and personally attacked by Deputy Chief Scott Green. He will likely be the next chief because corrupt Saanich police do not hire from the outside. They promote from within and always have. Green treated me like he was some kind of gangster enforcer just like Constable Horsley did when him and his twit sidekick did when they came to Calgary to threaten and intimidate me. Bunch of buffoons. Inspector Morgan was present and I could see his embarrassment but he towed the line. They recorded the meeting and I was promised a copy of it which I have yet to receive.
      Media partners is corruption. The media is supposed to be independent reporting to the people. Not in Victoria they don’t. They report on behalf of the police. They are scared of the police. We allow all this folks!

  12. Mark Roush says:

    Jeff, I Believe it’s the Right Time for ALL the GOOD PEOPLE to MARCH on ” PARLIAMENT HILL’

    • Robin says:

      Let’s start with the Lindsay Buziak walk for Justice on Feb 02, 2019. We all need to show up with our own possi of supporters. Time to let the Saanich Police know we have had enough of them. We demand arrests.

  13. Catherine says:

    The new information on life insurance has got me thinking. Could the thing that Lyndsay saw that she should not have seen be a copy of her own life insurance policy? Is that why she did not act.on it? It wasn’t illegal but wasn’t right.
    Could JZ and SZ have targeted her as he victim before the relationship even started. She may have been picked out as a suitable candidate and then JZ starts dating her. The extravagant expenses – the house etc are bought to keep her in the relationship. JZ I’d possessive and jealous because he has to keep her in the relationship not out of wanting her but wanting to keep her until they can kill her. Is the need for the insurance money part of a need to invest in something bigger and something illegal where funds which are not from their businesses are needed. Was the attack designed to look like a Pyschopath to detract from an insurance job?

    • Following says:

      Dont think the insurance policy was the reason. They made more money in real estate to offset any benefit. I think SZ eyed Lindsay as the perfect protege and perfect wife… I think SZ thought she was more in than she actually was and may have shared far too much. Certainly did with living accommodations. I think SZ had a grandiose idea going on and after revealing way too much. Panicked. Would be interesting to find out the initial draw date on the policy. Way too much real estate world plotting for this to be something other than what it is. Bad acting, overdone plot, and, what did she see.

      • Thomas says:

        I agree Following! Add the fact that a psycho like Shirley would not take Lindsay’s rejection of Ryan, Jason, herself and the Re/Max job wry well after all she did for Lindsay. What did she really do, launder some money in the lake house and condo? She was most likely angry enough to commit murder like a rejected typical insecure, psychopathic control freak. The life insurance policy if it really exists, may have been a fringe benefit set up just prior to the murder to cover Zailo financial losses in the Alberta drug bust. Either way, if it does exist, it is a really big deal that the prosecutors are virtually ignoring it as a motive for Shirley and publicly cleared her. I hope Bill is sending the information he posted here to unbiased officials if there are any. I look forward to prosecutors to prove us wrong about their lack of interest in solving this case by arresting someone.

      • Robin says:

        Totally agree about insurance policy, that amount would be small potatoes compared to the drug money they made and the money the Zailo’s launder. Just look at what SZ unloaded on the house she bought for Lindsay and JZ and then the condo. If Dr. Peter German doesn’t find out what the Zailo’s have been upto his phase 2 investigation on real estate and money laundering then he is incompetent. It’s going to be interesting to see how much integrity he has, and who he really works for. We know the Zailo’s have no integrity whatsoever. SZ is a murdering gangster.

        • Thomas says:

          Robin, it is a sad reality that Canada has historically been using money laundering from illegal substance sales to drive the economy since US alcohol prohibition. It is believed if the laundering real eastate business stopped, the Canadian housing market and economy will collapse. Canada can’t afford to stop it. They are making it look like they are trying. The Canadian banks have more relaxed rules for cash deposits than the US that encourage laundering. If the financial institution doesn’t report cash deposits because they are on the laundering payroll, the bank regulators will never get an alert. I always had a pristine view of Canada but when researching, found it has a very dark underbelly.

          • Robin says:

            Thanks for the explanation Thomas. So Canada really is the Wild Wild West then. So if that is the case then it should be publicly announced so we can all find illegal ways to get along, why make it for just gangsters, police and politicians? I went in on the $$$ too. So there are laws and rules for idiots only. What do we do then, just roll over? What about the Zailo’s? Should they get away with corruption, drug dealing and MURDER? Is that what is really going on here? Police and Politicians are just going to ignore us and that’s that. Who wants to join my gang?

            • Thomas says:

              I was so shocked to learn about these problems in Canada. Im sure the US has contributed as just as much in other ways. Remember how the CIA was shipping cocaine into the US for some bullshit reason like selling guns to the rebels in Nicaragua. This is something that I hoped to expose about why B.C. is a major drug trafficking hub. The coastline is barely patrolled. It’s like an invitation. This was so shocking to me and is one of the things that drew me into Lindsay’s murder. Drug dealing is so common that nice girls like Lindsay were exposed to it as part of normal life. There has to be something wrong if illegal drug dealing is just part of normal life. Vancouver and Surrey are the same. What do we do? I think we joined a gang that would like to fight for law and order and justice for innocent victims, murdered because they saw something they shouldn’t and the police refuse to help before and after because the police are part of the problem. We can keep exposing them and walk with Jeff in February the 2nd.

              • Robin says:

                Yes Thomas, we will definitely walk with Jeff. Let’s make it big this year for these reasons, Lindsay and Jeff deserve our support without a doubt and because it is a Saturday and more people have Saturdays off. This year we need to be seen and heard by our lackadaisical politicians and SPD. Damn these people that did this to Lindsay. It’s not ever going to be ok. I hope people from all over the island who have lost loved ones in this way show up to this walk for JUSTICE

    Also, since it was a crime of passion, was obviously a set up, obviously using real estate business then it has to be someone in her close circle. There are too many players for one of them not to squeal. The people outside, the actual killer inside, the get away vehicle, the knowledge of the house used, the knowledge of the referring family away on vacation, the knowledge of the neighbor, the builder, the boyfriend who left the country… all too many coincidences. Scott Peterson was convicted on too many coincidences. I have known some mother son relationships where the mother was a hot shot realtor and the adult child was controlled. SZ probably wanted a tight family operation and Lindsay’s looks fit into her plan of son married to a gorgeous woman who will be groomed for the chosen lifestyle. It’s not a drug hit. A drug hit would have been a gun. Or a throat slit. It would not have had such an elaborate timeline of events and certainly not additional actors. That’s from someone’s mind who thinks they need an elaborate story to make it seem real. Typically, those are significant other concoctions.

  15. Following says:

    It’s very complete. A client floor call is always suspect. The woman said several points. She said the clients said 3 bed 3 bath with nanny quarters. She said Lindsay was having trouble locating one to show them. Who directed her to De Sousa if the clients didnt bring it up. Who suggested she show that particular property. In order for the murderer to have a vacant house either the murderer suggested it but Shauna Rae says Lindsay identified the property. Someone suggested that property knowing that was the intended vacant crime scene. Someone made the home accessible, someone took the 3 boards off. How many footprints were in the blood at the crime scene. I am positive the two Mexicans were not the killers but part of the plan. The theatrics of this (knowing the referring couple were out of town) suggests it’s someone very familiar with how showings and real estate works. Not something people are privy too unless they have been at it awhile. Too many t’s crossed and i’s dotted in a cleverly real estate way. Also, I’m pretty sure SZ has a money train going with all those sales, and money laundering happening. I bet Lindsay was brought into the fold because mummy wanted her boy to marry a beautiful realtor who would fully participate. Bet she made a few mistakes by 1, buying them the house, 2 buying them the condo, 3 carrying on illicit business of shuffling cash deals. Bet a good analysis will show quite a number of all cashers. Miscalculated who Lindsay was. Lindsay saw something alright. Lots of hands in a honeypot.

  16. Jeff Buziak says:

    This young woman, Shauna Rae, did a very good job with this podcast. I was not interviewed by her so believe she formed her own conclusions from the extensive research she did.

  17. Mark Roush says:

    A point to ponder is responding to Jeff’s question to Jason’s urgency for cowen to go out to dinner with him when he just had a late dinner with Lindsay at 4pm. before I respond to Jason’s Urgency, I am Interested to know why Cowen did not appear on Dateline ? Was he threatened by the Zailo’s not to Appear ? I surmise Cowen is an Honest, Hardworking, Upright Citizen, Gullible, and can be easily Manipulated. Jason’s Persistent Request to Cowen to go out to “Dinner” was simply a Ruse created by Jason, Mainly for Jason’s Alibi, do to the fact that Jason parked his car under a Camera to meet Cowen in the parking Lot at SHC Autographx, as shown on the Video. And the Video is Interesting because it Appears as if Jason’s Looking straight up at the Camera to make sure that the Police can Easily Recognize him, because Jason Knows he will be sitting in the Saanich Police Department, to be Interrogated soon. Perhaps Jason’s Urgency was Twofold, Because Jason Appears to be a Mama’s Boy and a Coward, Perhaps Jason thought He would Cower under Pressure from the Police with there Interrogation of Him, and in his mind he needed Someone, Cowen to be there not only to Substantiate his Alibi, To be there for Emotional Support Also. There was Never going to be a Dinner with Cowen !!! and Jason Knew that !!! It would be Interesting to know what Cowen was thinking during his fateful journey with Jason that day. When someone, such as I, who got on the internet to search for SHC, the initial information about the business is basic, general information. what’s interesting to me is the business hours and it says Saturday 10am-5pm, but if you go to there actual Website the business hours for Saturday is by Appointment Only, 10am-2pm. What were there business hours on Saturday, February 2nd, 2008? Why did Jason “Supposedly” stay there for 1 hour? {4:30-5″30}. Why did Jason leave at 5:30 0n the dot? Did the “Keystone Cops” of Saannich investigate Jason’s motive for being there for 1hour? Did the “Keystone cops” of Saannich question the Owner of SHC and his Employees that were working that day concerning Jason’s Visit? Why did Jason direct Cowen to meet him, {Out of All Places} at SHC? Did Cowen go inside SHC?, or Was he Directed to Wait by Jason’s Car? The Video only shows Jason and Cowen apparently meeting at Jason’s car. Were there Video Cameras inside SHC? If so’ were they checked by Investigators to prove if Jason was Actually Inside SHC the Entire time {1hour} as he said he was? In Ending, I believe COWEN was an INNOCENT, {VICTIM of CIRCUMSTANCE} that was EXPLOITED by Jason Zailo to provide Emotional Support and a Stronger Alibi for him!!! ….In The End, All Roads Will Lead Back To The Zailo’s !!! My Prayers, JUSTICE FOR LINDSAY !!!

    Oh the irony of those who post with nothing more than a thought or feeling that they are right regardless of any foundation in fact.

    What’s more important; to be right, or to have learned something you previously did not know?

    Thomas, to attempt to answer your question(s). Lindsay’s only reason of going back to her residence was to do just that. Now, we all can argue our position on any one aspect of what we have all been told, or we can deduce what is most likely the truth wrapped in deceit. If we are to consider the process of lying from a basic behavior stand point, then it is more than likely that Jason Zailo told the truth about this than not, as it is within the structure of the behavior to offer what the individual believes to be a non threatening foundation to the body of the lie itself. What we don’t know for sure is whether SPD was able to confirm this by way of surveillance footage or possibly just discovering a change of clothes left out at the foot of her bed.

    Studies have shown that women change their clothes an average of 3-4 times a day depending on the circumstances of their professions or their present surroundings.

    Proof of a life insurance policy; well Thomas you mention some statistics above of murder victims and those that are first on the scene of said murder, and that there is a statistical likelihood of their involvement. So is this your personal threshold for believing that the Zailo’s are responsible for Lindsay’s death? The fact is in Canada that no person who is named as beneficiary has any obligation to disclose to anyone that they indeed are as named. But this does not mean that the information is not available. As I have made perfectly clear, this new information came by way of a retired law enforcement officer, who is in no way connected to this murder investigation that I am aware of. Now, you and everyone else can dismiss whatever you want to, regarding the information I or anyone here has shared over the years. But…. I will ask the question once again; are you doing so because you choose to want to be right in your position? Or would it not serve us all to stay open mined to what someone else may know, that we do not?

    For all/any of you that have arrived here only days, weeks, months, or even a few years ago, let me state that you are at a bit of a disadvantage in that many many people have already posted and/or covered so much of what you are yourselves speculating over.

    Some of us have been with this case much longer and have spent hundreds if not thousands of hours during this time conversing and considering the possibilities with Lindsay”s murder.

    When I started here posting, I analyzed every angle I could. I researched the weather, creating a model for consideration. I mapped out where we believe all the players were, and timed out the travel and the routes of travel. Given my background I looked at alternative modes of travel to and from the island during this time. I looked at the choices of egress the murderers had at their disposal. I researched what protocols were employed for containment. Applied known methods of analysis to the syntax of the statements made by those involved. Spent hours and hours doing background research on some of these people to include such things as known acquaintances, personal lifestyle choices, spending habits, previous employers and reasons for leaving, investment in real estate. I even applied forensic tests where I could including the Luscher color test based on the choices of colours certain individuals chose to wear. And after 9 years, I am still seeking to learn what others have to say or think. Can you say the same Thomas?

    What is proof? Is it someone confessing? False confessions are real, are they not? Did Saddam Husein ever possess weapons of mass destruction? We now know that that was all a complete fabrication, yet the White House sold it and killed hundreds of thousands of people, and for what?

    This murder, Lindsay’s murder, continues to evolve into places we are still confused by. Having or believing that only certain people or events took place only stifles the efforts of everyone else who continue to put forth their ideas, or share new information.

    As 2019 approaches, I would ask that everyone remember, none of us knows with certainty why Lindsay was taken from us, moreover is that thinking, believing that “your” theory is the right one without keeping an open mind may keep you from that ah ha moment that could change everything.

    Jeff gets many many emails about this blog, and the associated theories. It is my pledge in Lindsay’s memory, that I will write at least one email a month to someone, anyone I can think of that may have some measure of influence to bring about a just conclusion for the Buziak’s and everyone who Lindsay’s life meant something to. Jeff will receive a copy of what and who I write, rather that just another go nowhere email.
