The ‘Big Stop’ – An Enfield assassination

My name is Pete Stevens, I am a 41 years old, from Cole Harbour now living in Bedford Nova Scotia. I use to moonlight as a news chaser/photographer, and now I’m a driving instructor.

The car Wortman was driving had a green leprechaun in the dash that continued dancing after he was killed.

Mr Blue, that’s me.

On the night of April 18 2020, I stepped out onto the deck for a minute. There was nothing remarkable about this evening, the temperature was below freezing and a light flurry was quietly falling. But, “the temperature can only go up from here” as they say. This was a night no Nova Scotian will ever forget. Multiple innocent people were randomly murdered during the two massacres and were given zero warning that a devilish-highly trained agent agent was on the loose. Nobody would ask any questions or take any action so I did as best I could.

Wortman exits Highway 102 southbound at exit 7 to grab some snacks. Note the RCMP Ident truck in the background which is also going to the Big Stop.

As I stood on my deck April 18th, it seemed as though there was something in the air, as in, something felt strange. There was a stillness that I couldn’t quite put my finger on, almost like an electrical energy and perfect stillness. I took a quick video with my phone in an attempt to capture this strange feeling, then went back to bed and chuckled at the fact that I took a video of nothing. I am not a clairvoyant or anything like that, but some things don’t require special senses or perceptions.

Wortman was assassinated at the Enfield Big Stop.

On April 19 2020, I was sitting on the couch with my wife while we drank our morning coffee and checked our social media feeds. Thankfully, I checked Twitter, where I learned that the RCMP were dealing with some kind of a “weapons complaint” which I assumed was a dispute between two people and that one had been shot. I mean, if it were anything more than a weapons complaint, surely the RCMP would communicate that fact, right? 

The last car Wortman was in with a handgun on the floor.

I saw a few more tweets from the RCMP so I turned on my radio scanner to see what in the blazing stars was happening. I couldn’t hear the RCMP radio channel as the RCMP had encrypted its radios in Nova Scotia a couple of years previous for privacy reasons, but I could hear other agencies such as EHS, DNR and Fire.

Big St-OP

I listened closely as the incident unfolded. EHS communicated that they were “not required” at one of the scenes that they had been dispatched to, because the female was “DOA”. I assumed at the time that it was a victim in the Portapique area but the RCMP did not bother to tell NS citizens that; not only was there a complete massacre in Portapique the night before with 13 dead, but that there was a second massacre underway in Wentworth and Wortman was dancing around them like a leprechaun on Saint Paddy’s Day.

The gas station videos have proven what many Nova Scotians have known from day 1; The RCMP is lying about every detail of what happened during the two massacres that occurred over a 13 hour time period.

Portapique Files – Gas Station Footage

We would later find out that the RCMP knew Gabriel Wortman was wearing an RCMP uniform, driving an RCMP cruiser equipped with an encrypted radio, and that he was proficient with firearms and that they knew this the night before at 10:01 p.m.

EXCLUSIVE: Portapique 911 calls reveal what RCMP knew from the start

https://www.frankmagazine.ca/portapique911calls

Witnesses reported an RCMP officer jumping out of an SUV and assassinating Wortman without any attempt to negoiate or preserve life, which is the mandate of the police.

A part of me wanted to tweet and warn everyone to stay home but I wasn’t sure if that would be a good idea at the time. Twitter was on fire with citizens who rightfully were yelling at the RCMP social-media-hack to issue a province wide emergency alert. The RCMP ignored citizen’s requests flat out.

There was however one type of tweet the RCMP were quick to address and clarify. When anyone on Twitter would suggest Wortman was an RCMP officer, the RCMP tweeter would quickly dismiss that suggestion. This seemed curious to me because the RCMP were not saying anything else about what was happening, nor were they issuing any alerts to Nova Scotians which would have saved lives, but they made certain to clarify that Wortman wasn’t one of the RCMP.

I waited at home to hear when it might be safe to venture out. At 11:32 a.m. a firefighter on an open channel said “suspect is down” at the Irving Big Stop in Enfield. The information about the suspect being down was likely somewhat delayed as it came from the Fire Department who are not on the private or “encrypted” RCMP radio channel.  

Curiously, the RCMP did not advise the public at this time that the suspect was down, and then, ten minutes later they mis-lead the public by saying that Gabriel Wortman was in custody, which was a lie. Gabriel Wortman was in fact lying dead at pump five after being shot multiple times by RCMP officers. He may have taken his own life, but that wouldn’t stop the two ERT hitters from filling him with led.

The RCMP may have assassinated Wortman at pump 5 in the Enfield Big Stop parking lot. It would be an ideal location as all angles and lines of sight could be and were blocked from cameras and witnesses.

EHS and DNR radio comms April 19th 2020

By now, there were 13 people dead from the April 18 massacre in Portapique and 8 dead after the second massacre on April 19. I grabbed my camera and began driving north on highway 102 toward the Irving Big Stop, now that the Devil was down in Enfield. I was two exits away from the scene at exit 5A. I encountered a roadblock which for some reason was set up in the opposite direction to which Wortman was driving and was two exits down from the actual scene in Enfield. Both the RCMP and HRP were at this location and it almost seemed as if they were blocking entry to Halifax International Airport. I was able to exit at 5A and drive up Pratt and Whitney Dr to exit 6 (airport) where there was no roadblock or police presence. It’s possible that they were blocking the second entrance to Oldham Road and or Old Guysborough Road at Exit 5A. But it begs the question; why leave Exit 6 open?

This was more of a “show” roadblock as at this point Wortman is dead.

Highway 102 Exit 5A April 19th 2020 and Enfield Big Stop

I arrived on scene at the Big Stop. I got out of my car and tried to make sense of what I am seeing. The area was flooded with cops and there is a man lying on the ground full of bullet holes and curiously handcuffed with tie straps. Using tie straps to cuff Wortman instead of serialized handcuffs ensured his killers could not be identified.  

There were many plain clothes federal agents on scene in Enfield.

I went live on Twitter using the Periscope app, an app that was discontinued shortly after this tragedy. As I stood next to a couple of reporters, we had a clear view of Wortman. My phone camera stayed aimed at pump five in one hand while my other hand worked the camera to capture still images. My live stream must have captured something that the RCMP didn’t want public, because they deleted the stream shortly after. There was a known issue with my model of phone that would cause Periscope to automatically use the telephoto lens instead of the normal one. The video would have been zoomed right in on Wortman and I wonder if anyone happened to record it.

The RCMP carefully laid out Wortman’s body for the cameras. They could not have picked a better place to take him out as all camera angles were obstructed.

The Big Stop Dilemma

Also, while I was live on Periscope, a couple of random dudes came up beside me and seemed as though they were trying on purpose to act drunk and be annoying to media folks. These were the same dudes that took the ‘worst video in history’ of the alleged takedown at the Big Stop. I can’t tell you how weird it was to be at this scene with these two randoms who were goofing around like nothing even happened. I suspect they were there for a specific reason, maybe to assist with a cover up or, more likely, to run interference on the few reporters that were on scene. Well, it worked on me as I had enough of it and was ready to move to the next scene.

If you slow this video down you will notice for a split second that there is a New Brunswick motor vehicle inspection sticker on the truck’s windshield.

Eventually, the police vehicles were moved into such a position that no reporter or photographer could see the scene at pump 5. I should also point out that my friend who I grew up with – his dad was at the Big Stop scene. My friend’s dad happens to be one of the Canadian Army’s top killers. He trains the armies of other countries and was on scene in plain clothes that day. Was Wortman a federal agent?

I hopped back into my vehicle but kept watching the area. I hung around for five minutes or so and to make sure nothing else was happening then I drove north to Shubenacadie to the scene where Constable Heidi Stevenson was murdered. I posted some photos of the scene in Enfield too.

Many of the areas that were involved in the massacre were redacted from Google Maps. However, BING Maps had plenty of images from the Enfield Big Stop April 19. See the screenshots below. Notice all of the ERT trucks in the parking lot.

Many of the below photos are screenshots from news clips. Corporate media outlets used mostly video to cover this tragedy because video goes by fast and it’s harder to stop a particular part to have a closer look. Many of these screenshots offer some significant insights.

The minute I started recording, multiple RCMP officers positioned their cars to block my line of sight. Why would they be so concerned about some dude taking a few photos. I have covered news events for years and have never had this happen.

This is a roadblock between exits 7 and 6 southbound on Highway 102. There is already a roadblock at the next exit so this one is for show. At this point Wortman was already dead.

It didn’t seem like anything significant had happened on scene. Many of the people seemed light hearted and didn’t seem as though they had just lost a fellow officer.

It’s worth noting how cold it was on this day. This person had to stop and warm their hands. It was extremely windy. Many of the hardened ERT officers were bundled up wearing toques. It had snowed a bit the night before.

Both drivers side windows are shot out or are down. I was told by someone in the know that there were also shooters on the drivers side.

This is the only scene in all of the images throughout the event where an actualy forensic police officer was suited up properly and investigating a homicide.

All of the ERT cops were wearing toques on Sunday while the sun was out. How did Lisa survive in the woods all night without a jacket? Her hair and makeup were perfect when she arrived at Leon’s. Yet in every news clip, we see officers bundled up because it was cold. Clinton Ellison was only outside for 3 hours and was treated for Hypothermia.

The news clips were cut in a way that you could only see the officers on scene for a very split second. I froze those clips and screen grabbed them.

One thing to note about the Big Stop surveillance photos is the second that the plains clothes feds arrive on scene, they go immediately into the gas station to take control of the surveillance videos and have all employees sign NDA’s.

The surveillance videos obtained by Paul Palango and Frank Magazine prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this supposed take down was staged after the RCMP hitters first killed Wortman. This ones for the media cameras.

The employee at the Big Stop had phoned 911 when they saw Wortman. There was a person riding a Harley Davidson on scene at the Big Stop. There was a top cop in the form of Supt Darren Campbell. None of those on their own seem of interest until you watch the Peter Fonda movie Easy Rider which is about a man who rides a motorcycle, trafficks drugs, and has a lawyer from Michigan as a friend who is an alcoholic. Remember Tom Evans, Gabriel Wortman’s alcoholic lawyer friend from Michigan?

They say that Wortman was fascinated by police officers but from everything I’ve seen, it seems like the exact opposite.

Before making an appearance in Enfield, Wortman stopped at the Millbrook Trading Post which happens to be located down the street from the local RCMP detachment. He calmly exited his RCMP cruiser and put on his traffic vest. Coincidentally, his next two targets are RCMP traffic cops at the Shubenacadie traffic circles.  

An enthusiastic person wheels Wortman’s body away.

Wortman is the only mass shooter in history to kill every witness he encountered and he left no evidence of his crimes anywhere. He even went as far as to put the bodies of his victims into the vehicles before lighting them on fire. Clearly he wasn’t in any kind of rush, and he took the time to ensure everything he did was done in a calm, calculated, and clinical manner with no evidence left behind.

After getting my shots, I drove south on Highway 2. I stopped at the Milford Esso gas station for a quick rest stop. There didn’t seem to be anyone talking about what happened. I drove south again on Highway 2 where I passed the Milford EHS base which was packed with police cars and SUV’s. The dark blue SUV in the parking lot, appeared to be the same one that had stopped at the Shubie traffic circles in that famous video of the two police vehicles burning. 

Continuing down Highway 2, I pass a gun store in Elmsdale which had a statue of a bear outside. I noted the irony. Eventually I drive past the Enfield RCMP detachment where there is a roadblock. I stared at the young officer manning the roadblock as intently as possible hoping to maybe gauge the mood. He didn’t seem upset at all and he let me pass through after I had advised him I needed to get to Oldham Road.  

As I approach Oldham Road I am again surprised to see another roadblock. There were no roadblocks put in front of Gabriel Wortman for 13 hours during the biggest murder spree in Canadian history, yet I encountered two roadblocks within one kilometre of the Enfield RCMP detachment and the Irving Big Stop two hours after the spree is over and the gunman dead.
