Christopher Gordon, 20, has been found guilty of manslaughter in the killing of David Blacquiere outside of Shoppers Drug Mart in Weston.
Blacquiere was 54, a father of four, and a hockey referee. He was stabbed to death in the parking lot of Shoppers around noon on November 15, 2017. The Star has an excellent article on the story.
It was a baffling scene in a case that resulted late Saturday in a verdict of manslaughter for 20-year-old Christopher Gordon….
The trial of Gordon heard that, according to eyewitnesses and security footage, Blacquiere, the 54-year-old father of four, who lived two hours north of Toronto in Angus, Ont., was stabbed during a violent altercation with a tall, skinny, young man after the two tumbled out of Blacquiere’s car just before noon on Nov. 14, 2017.
But as the investigation unfolded, Toronto police homicide Det. Sgt. Rob North came to a troubling realization: the part-time hockey referee had been stabbed to death by his crack dealer.
A Weston-area doctor has received a 12-year sentence for writing fake fentanyl prescriptions. Dr. George Otto worked with a Weston pharmacist, Dr Shereen El-Azrak, who filled the fraudulent prescriptions. The pain patches were sold on to middlemen, who peddled them around Ontario.
El-Azrak, who worked at PharmaChoice on Lawrence, received a 13-year sentence.
Dr Otto worked out of a walk-in clinic on Jane St, near Wilson. He and El-Azrak trafficked more than 6000 fentanyl patches, according to the sentencing documents. That many patches could be worth more than a million dollars.
