Indian Stabs Lady 83 Times – Caught Poaching

A man who is serving a life sentence for stabbing his neighbour to death during a robbery in Terrace 14 years ago will be allowed to live in a halfway house for the next two months.

Christopher Maurice Alexander, 33, went before the Parole Board of Canada last month and was granted a 60-day unescorted temporary absence from his minimum-security prison, according to a recently released decision.

In December 1998, a drunk and high Alexander decided to rob his neighbour. Armed with a knife and wearing a disguise, he went into 36-year-old Linda Geraldine LeFranc’s townhouse with a key hidden outside the door. When LeFranc saw him and tried to run away, Alexander yelled at her, chased her and then stabbed her 83 times. LeFranc’s seven-year-old daughter found her body a few hours later.
Alexander, who was 17 years old at the time of the murder, was arrested a year later, following a police undercover operation.

Caught Poaching

A First Nations couple facing poaching charges claim they are being “persecuted for being Indian.”

Jay Coutts and Fara Palmer were in provincial court in Kamloops on Thursday to fight the charges, saying their aboriginal rights are being violated.

They have been charged with one count each of trafficking in wildlife, while Coutts faces an additional count of hunting during prohibited hours.

Coutts told the court that his aboriginal rights trump Canada’s laws.

“All the words in these laws are white-man words,” he said.

“These are laws built for non-native people. It is for white people, not native people.”

The couple say they have constitutional rights based on a number of prominent cases, including a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision granting the Tsilhqot’in Nation near Williams Lake, B.C., title to 1,700 square miles of land in the remote Nemiah Valley.

Coutts and Palmer were charged after an undercover operation by the B.C. Conservation Officer Service in April 2013.

Jay Leno Backs out of Shot Show

ay Leno has canceled a performance at a big gun show in response to the criticism of several anti-gun groups.

The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT) event where Leno was scheduled to appear in January is sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which is based in Newtown, Connecticut.

“I’m not sure if Jay Leno has done his research and understands that NSSF is the corporate gun lobby and they spend a significant amount of money to lobby congressional leaders to not pass significant gun reform legislation,” Newtown Action Alliance chairman Po Murray told Mother Jones magazine. “It’s a disheartening as a Newtown resident to see him make this appearance at the SHOT Show. So we’re urging him to cancel his appearance.”

After canceling his appearance, Leno told Mother Jones: “I understand it’s Newtown, and of course I get it. It’s just sometimes, mistakes get made.”
