We all said there appeared to be something not right about this guy, I guess we were on point.

The original story never added up in the first place. It was always fishy and never really sat right.

And it's interesting that there's a media blackout on the name of the person he is alleged to be the victim of the various charges.

You can probably connect the dots on that one.

For "person" in your comment, read "people." According to the limited amount the media have been allowed to report on this there are two victims involved. One hopes that one of them isn't a child... it's also instructive that his wife's only statement was that she and the children are "healthy and holding up as well as we can," before saying she couldn't comment further.

Yeah, what Oakvillian said .

Also yeah what everyone else said in this thread about something being “off” with the story. I’m hoping I wasn’t wrong about giving some “benefit of the doubt” to JB.

Additional/replacement charges

Quote:
The 19 new charges, which relate to one alleged victim instead of two, are:

One count of sexual assault while threatening to use a weapon (ropes).
One count of sexual assault with a weapon (ropes).
One count of uttering a threat to cause death.
Nine counts of assault.
One count of assault with a weapon (a broomstick).
Three counts of unlawful confinement.
One count of administering a noxious substance (the antidepressant Trazodone).
One count of public mischief (misleading a police officer into believing that someone was suicidal and missing, causing the officer to start an investigation, and thereby diverting suspicion away from Boyle).
One count of criminal harassment.
And a new psychiatric assessment.

Who for? Him or the people who believed him or for JT meeting with him.

What I don’t understand is how come 90% of the Canadian population found JB to be a little odd, and not the sort of person who they would use as a last minute baby sitter yet PM selfie thought meeting him was a normal thing to do?

Well the story was plausible at the beginning so it made sense for JT to meet them. Selfies are big for him...

Was there ever a PM or President that didn't meet with/express sympathy or support in such circumstances?

Sometimes you really do let your bitterness get the better of you.

Imagine the commentary if a country's leader doesn't do something.

I’m done guessing. Or -at least - keeping my guesses/speculation to myself.

Common sense not bitterness. When he returned to Canada with several kids, in relative good health I was sceptical of the Whole situation. Obviously I had no proof that he could be a crazy back then, so we all just waited to see what would happen next. Selfies with the PM would not have been top of my list that’s for sure.

A statement from the PM would have been suffice at that stage

Except for all those people who'd be saying the least he could have done was to have met them.
