Allan Legere - The Monster of the Miramichi

In all corners of our country, if you ask the right people, you’ll hear stories of ghosts or monsters that at some time in the area’s history briefly made themselves known.

This episode will describe one such case.

It will feature a community crippled with fear and overcome by a feeling of defenselessness.

A community in which it's most vulnerable were preyed upon by a beast too frightening to be dreamt up.

Like many of horror literature's greatest villains, by day this monster hid in the forest that surrounded the village and only at night, under the cover of darkness, would it enter civilization to exercise it's wickedness. But, unlike horror’s many boogeymen and boogeywomen what made this monster so terrifying is that he isn’t a work of fiction... in fact, the community knew exactly who was preying on them...

Tonight, In this episode of Nightttime, We will hear the story of an infamous Canadian serial killer who, after a daring prison escape, stalked his community, murdering several elderly citizens while hiding in the dense forest surrounding the region.

This is the story of Allan Legere... the Monster of the Miramichi

In this episode we are joined by Rick Maclean (Editor of Miramichi leader, Author of Terror) who provides his account of the many twists and turns that unfold during this terrifying story.

The BC Manhunt (with Jessica Vomiero)

Something chilling is happening here in Canada, and it has the nation looking on with concern.

At the time of recording, July 27th 2019, two young men from a small city on Vancouver Island are the subjects of an intense manhunt.

Just over a week ago, 19 year old Kam McLeod and his friend, 18 year old Bryer Schmegelsky left their homes in Port Alberni, BC to search for work further west. What they have been up to since is a mystery, but what we do know is that three people have been murdered since and Kam and Bryer are suspected to be involved.

Tonight, in this episode of Nighttime, Jessica Vomiero of Global News will join us and our topic is the ongoing Manhunt for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.

Storming Area 51

Something big is happening here on earth.

Something with the potential to change life as we know it.

Something so relevant that it’d be irresponsible to not cover it on Nighttime, regardless of where it occurs in relation to the Canadian border.

What I'm referring to isn't going to be news for listeners of this show, as this is an event that has gripped all of humanity in a state of nervous excitement.

On September 20th, at 3am, nearly 2 million people will descend upon a Nevada desert on a mission remove the veil of secrecy that has kept humanity ignorant.

These men and women, no these heroes, plan to storm Area 51… at least according to what they said on Facebook.

The plot to Storm Area 51 was brought to my attention much in the same way weird news often does, in the middle of the night...during a bout of insomnia. I picked my phone up from my bedside table and began scrolling through my news feed.

The headline that grabbed my attention was something to the effect of "Online mob, over 1 million strong, vow to storm Area 51 in search of extraterrestrial life" obviously this was a story I had to learn more about.

Not because I think there is any good reason for an online mob to storm a top secret military base.

It was the simple absurdity of it all that drew me in.

Rather than indulge my curiosity in solitude, this was a story I had to talk out with someone whose insight I trusted.

To better understand the "Storm area 51" phenomenon, I turned to one of the biggest brains Canada has offered up to the world of UFOlogy… MJ Banias.

The Dark Side of Jury Duty (with Mark Farrant)

A very small number of Nighttime listeners have served on a jury, but many more know someone who has. Regardless which side you fall on, chances are the trial involved was fairly mundane and unremarkable... but that’s not always how it happens.

Think of someone you know, perhaps a painfully innocent aunt.

What happens when they get assigned to a case involving some of darkest evidence imaginable? how do they get through it? how do they cope? and who picks up the pieces after the verdict is delivered?

Very few are better positioned to answer those questions then our guest Mark Farrant.

In 2014, a letter arrived at Mark’s door indicating he was in a pool to serve on the jury for an upcoming murder trial, and to put it simply, he hasn't been the same man since.

The trial was that of Farshad Badakshan, a man accused in the horrifically brutal killing of his girlfriend.

The graphic details Mark was immersed in had left him with the crippling symptoms of PTSD and to make matters worse, laws that serve to provide jurors privacy have made it nearly impossible for mark to get treatment.

This has been the fuel for one of Canada's fiercest advocates for the rights of Canadian jurors.

In this episode, Mark will share both his experiences with the dark side of Jury duty and his efforts to make things better for future jurors.

GloveGuy - 2 - the Dark Side of the Glove

Halifax, NS, is a city with no shortage of tall tales, folklore, and urban legends.

The story of the Gloveguy, I dare say, is stranger than all of them.

I first heard the story a few years back. Much like many urban legends, a friend of a friend was said to have had an encounter with a man who makes a hobby of offering Halifax's young men rides home late at night, only to reveal his leather glove fetish along the way.

I cant explain why, but I immediately dismissed the story as untrue or an exaggeration.

My initial conclusion couldn't have been more wrong.

My opinion on the existence of the Glove Guy changed when a local man shared the details of a strange late night encounter with a glove salesmen on a local online discussion group. This man's story obviously hit a nerve as within a matter of hours a chorus of others joined the discussion to share their similar stories… many of which included photos and in one case secretly filmed video of the interactions.

I was faced with the realization that the story I had assumed too bizarre to be true was real and I had to learn all I could.

So get in, sit down, and put on your seat belt.

In this episode, The Dark Side of the Glove, we continue our exploration into the strange story of Halifax's Gloveguy and find something darker and more troubling then we had expected.

the Story of Holly Bartlett

In life Holly Bartlett was a conqueror.

Born with a condition that would lead to complete vision loss, Holly refused to allow her blindness to prevent her from living life to it's fullest.

She had an active social life, a career, an education, and a network of friends and family that looked to her as an inspiration.

But, all the good things that were happening in Holly's life came to a screeching halt on a cold night in March of 2010.

After spending a night out with friends, celebrating her upcoming graduation, Holly was found gravely injured in a nearly inaccessible area underneath a downtown Halifax bridge.

the police investigation into the circumstance that would lead to her injuries, and in turn her death, was surprisingly fast.

The Police believed the death was accidental, however... it seems they are about the only ones that feel that way.

Holly's friends, family, and supporters have been very vocal about their dissatisfaction with the police investigation of Holly's death. An investigation many call at best, flawed and at worst, derailed by an ignorance about living with blindness.

In this episode we will be joined by Maggie Rahr (host of What Happened to Holly Bartlett) for a discussion about a case that will make you scratch your head, and make you scream.

the 2018 Canadian UFO Survey

For those interested in the UFO phenomenon, it’s hard to deny that 2018 has been one of the most exciting years in decades.

Arguably, it all started with a late 2017 article published in the New York Times that revealed the existence of a 22 million dollar United States Defence Department program, tasked with investigating reports of UFO events.

The news surrounding this program, and a few videos of anomalous objects they have researched, seemed to have fanned the coals that have been smoldering since the golden age of UFOs.

The result was a a year of UFO news that could easily provide inspiration for several more seasons of X-Files.

but, if we ignore all of 2018’s UFO themed trials and tribulations and simply ask "What was seen and reported in the skies above Canada" there is really only one place to look.

It’s not to the ex-singer of Blink 182 and it’s not to agents operating on behalf of the shadowy elite.

It’s to a self deprecating science writer from Manitoba and the highly respected report he has been coordinating annually for the past 30 years.

Since 1989, Chris Rutkowski, and his group UFOlogy Research have compiled, classified, and analyzed the data related to Canadian UFO sightings into an annual report titled the Canadian UFO Survey.

In this episode, recorded only hours after the release of the 2018 Canadian UFO Survey, Chris Rutkowski provides background on the report and shares his opinions on many of the data points.

The Three Cape Breton Boys on the Tracks

When a member of your childhood peergroup loses their life, a few things may happen… shock, dismay, sadness, perhaps a wake up call, but ultimately it's something and someone you will never forget.

In this episode we will hear of one such story and how someone close to those involved is dealing with it.

We will be joined by Ken Jessome, who back in the summer of 1970 lost two of his childhood friends under strange circumstances.

The event has been haunting him, and many others who grew up along side him ever since, but it wasn't only the tragic deaths that have been troubling Ken. It was the puzzling circumstances that lead to them and the fact that no one seemed to have looked into it.

Now, nearly 50 years Later, Ken Jessome vows to do all he can to share the story the the three Cape Breton Boys on the tracks.

Canada's Last Witch Trial - The Story of Tiffany Butch

At it's essence, this story is that of a rivalry between two competition psychics in Small town Ontario. Not unlike many business rivalries this too would quickly boil over and lead to a courtroom... the charges however were probably the last anyone would have expected. 

A little know, and long antiquated, law that criminalized the practice of witchcraft has sat awkwardly within the Canadian Criminal Code for several hundred years. Charges related to this law were incredible rare but as you will hear in this episode they weren’t impossible.

Tonight, in this episode of Nighttime, We will be joined by Tiffany Butch, the subject of Canada's last witch Trial.

Throughout the conversation, Lindsay will provide background on many of the defining moments that formed her evolution from an above average kid in a loving family to a young women with an unwavering believe in nazism, a strong affinity towards all things Columbine, and a willingness to kill and die alongside a young man who shared her antisocial beliefs.

The Story of Lindsay Souvannarath - 1 - an Introduction to the Valentine's Day Massacre

Cover 0.jpg

It seems that nearly everyday we have a new example of someone, or someones, who's internal conflict culminates in a violent attack on members of the public.

The fact that these events happen is terrifying, something that I’ve to dealt with using the same naive thought process that many affected by these tragedies can likely relate to.

I've taken comfort in the ignorant believe that things like that wouldn't happen here, but regardless if you are referring to my here or yours, here is Exactly where these things happen. 

in 2015, on the eve of Valentine's day, the people of Halifax would learn they aren’t exempt from the type of nightmares that play out on American news stations. 

a local 19 year old James Gamble and his girlfriend, 23 year old American Lindsay Souvannarath, had taken the first steps in a plot to shoot and kill as many people as possible in the Halifax Shopping Centre food court before taking their own lives, just like the other murderous pair they idolized… the columbine shooters.

In this introductory episode, the foundation will be laid for an ongoing series in which the surviving architect of the Valentine's day massacre, the enigmatic Lindsay Souvannarath, will break the silence she has maintained since boarding a plane to Nova Scotia with murderous intentions.

Was it a Sasquatch in Pictou County, NS?

In 2015, When I first launched Nighttime, One of the first requests I made to listeners was for story ideas that took place in, or in some way involved, the forest.

The first response I received, lead me to this episodes story.

Myles MacKenzie sent me an email sharing the story of an animal encounter he and some high school friends had in the woods of Pictou County Nova Scotia. 

Actually, "Animal Encounter" is a bit of and understatement. Don't roll your eyes before you hear the story but, Myles and his friends, they believe they encountered the legendary Bigfoot. 

It happened back in 2003, when Myles and a few members of his track team were running sprints in the dense woods of the Green hill provincial park. 

Whatever the group encountered, it wasn't like anything they nor their coach had experienced before or since. Nor was nothing they would ever forget.

Tonight in this episode of Nighttime, we will be joined by both Myles MacKenzie as well as his high school track coach, his father Stephen MacKenzie.

Our Topic, will be Pictou County's surprising history, with Bigfoot.
