April 19 2020 10:48 am – BILL BLAIR tweets to advise Nova Scotians to be careful but he doesn’t issue a public alert.

April 19 2020 10:49 am – A woman is dead according to the scanner (My tweet now deleted)

April 19 2020 10:54 am – Wortman arrives in Millbrook 

April 19 2020 10:55 am – The above tweet was replied to as “is he a police officer?” RCMP then reply with this:

“No he is not.” (10:55 am Apr 19) 6?s=20

April 19 2020 11:01 am – We don’t know if it’s still there right now. The best identifier for this  car is 28B11 on the C pillar or behind the rear passenger door. (11:01 am Apr 19) This is a reply to the above tweet also. 

April 19 2020 11:04 am – Gabriel Wortman, suspect in active shooter investigation, last seen traveling southbound on Hwy #102 from #Brookfield area in what appears to be an RCMP vehicle & may be wearing an RCMP uniform. Suspect’s car is 28B11, behind the rear passenger window. If you see 28B11 call 911. (11:04 am Apr 19) 

They say he is in Brookfield because they know he is further ahead. By now the vehicles in Shubie are fully involved.

April 19 2020 11:06 am – Gabriel Wortman, suspect in active shooter investigation, now  believed to be driving a small silver Chevrolet SUV. Traveling southbound on Hwy #102 from #Brookfield area If seen, call 911. (11:06 am Apr 19) 

He is in Gina’s car by now not the “tracker.” A witness who stopped at the Onslow fire hall shortly after the shootout at 10:20 am overheard the RCMP radio and someone said that Wortman was in a gray Mazda 3. That’s an hour before he was actually in the gray Mazda 3.

Paul Palango in Frank Magazine: Still there was no public alert, no roadblocks and three more people would end up dying – RCMP Constable Heidi Stevenson, Good Samaritan Joey Webber and Wortman’s fellow denturist Gina Goulet, with whom he had had an affair. One would think that all this would be the subject of the upcoming Mass Casualty Commission’s work, but the insider who supplied us with these tapes is skeptical about what the Commission will accomplish.

True Blue said that part of their motivation for coming forward is their personal frustration with the stonewalling by the RCMP, not only in this matter, but also in other cases in Nova Scotia in the past. Finally, the 911 calls strike at the heart of the RCMP’s contention that it only knew about Wortman and the police car from Lisa Banfield.

That’s patently false, and raises serious questions about the nature of the force’s relationship with Banfield, whom the force has called a “victim” from the first week. Now that we know a little bit about what really happened that night without the interference, deflection and deceptions of the RCMP clouding the issue, one can only wonder what more there is to know.

Finally, there is this. Over the past 14 months the RCMP have played games with the timeline, comically so in the first few days. It had problems nailing down when the first call had come in. At one point it was 10:15. At another time it was 10:01. They even said, in so many words, that the children in the basement had made the first call at 10:01. They allowed the timing of Jack Blair’s call to be conflated with Jamie Blair’s first call – effectively making her and her tragic story disappear.

The use of conflation is an old RCMP trick to hide evidence. It’s something that we will see again in our next story.

April 19 2020 11:35 am – To clarify, the suspect in our active shooter investigation, Gabriel  Wortman, is NOT employed by the RCMP but he may be wearing an RCMP uniform. He is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, do NOT approach and call 911 immediately. (11:35 am Apr 19) 

They make sure to clarify that Wortman is not one of them a lot. That’s one reason why he was likely one of them. They have already executed Wortman by now.

April 19 2020 11:40 am – Gabriel Wortman, suspect in an active shooter investigation, is now in custody. More information will be released when available. Thank you for your cooperation and support. #Colchester. (11:40  am Apr 19)
