Saint John, New Brunswick, was on national TV last night! There’s this investigative, documentary program called Fifth Estate on CBC, on Friday nights. They bring up all kinds of in-depth investigations … could be politics, controversial characters or ordinary people.
So … this time it was about the high-profile murder case I wrote about, here in the blog, one month ago [LINK]; the bludgeoning of a businessman, belonging to one of the three wealthiest families, here, in the province of New Brunswick.
It was interesting to watch, but I didn’t sense it brought anything new to the table … nothing we didn’t already know. It’s not over yet, since he’s filed an appeal, but the appeal case won’t come up until in the Fall, sometime.
In any case, it was ‘interesting’ to see Saint John on TV, even though I see it every day … it looked so … spiffy! 🙂 I’m would be the first to tell you about what a gem this city is, but still — it looked different and more colourful on TV — those areal shots were gorgeous. Says something about the filming of the show, I guess. Normally, I don’t notice these things — it’s extremely rare I watch a movie that leaves me impressed by the filming, in fact I can only recall two: «Sleepless in Seattle» and «City of Angels», but now I’m straying far from the subject.
The show didn’t convince me that he did it, or didn’t do it — it didn’t take away the ‘reasonable doubt’. I have a feeling people are pretty much divided up 50/50 when it comes to the opinions about Dennis Oland’s guilt.
