one of the worst mass murders in Canadian history.
A gunman dressed himself up as an RCMP "mountie" - and even drove a police cruiser,
with only one specific intention in mind - to hunt humans !!!
Speaking of murders in Canada....

Ian Tyson wrote a song about one of the most notorious of criminals
in Canadian history >>> The Wild McLeans <<<
Allan + Charles + Archie McLean, who together with their French half-breed
partner, Alex Hare, ran amok and terrorized the fur-traders and trappers
of British Columbia, in December of 1879.
They were finally brought in by a posse after a desperate chase ---
but only after they had committed several cold-blooded murders !!!
All four of these heartless killers were hanged on January 31st, 1881.
Charles and Allan McLean were in their mid-twenties.
Alex Hare was seventeen. And get this ---
Archie McLean had just turned fifteen when they led him to the gallows.
It was the first time three brothers were executed together in Canada.
