BBoy Charges

Post#361 by Guest Oct. 20, 2018, 07:22AM

If I were them I would prefer to get this trial over with. Get the 5 or 6 year sentence, serve 2 and call it a day.

They are not getting any younger.

Unless the attempt is to get it thrown out of court due to long waiting times? Seems that would be a waste of the citizen's money and resources though.

Post#360 by Guest Sep. 30, 2018, 03:17PM

Good question poster #356 - where are the "bboys" now?

I'm seeing nothing in our Calgary papers about any trials or sentences.

How do you find out if someone has gone to trial or been sentenced anyway?

Post#356 by Guest Aug. 08, 2018, 10:20AM

How did the preliminary hearings go?

When does the actual criminal trial begin?

Post#350 by Guest Aug. 02, 2018, 03:59PM

Hello,what is the latest news on these  two? How did court turn out?

Post#349 by Guest Aug. 01, 2018, 03:10PM

How so?

"

A preliminary hearing is best described as a "trial before the trial" at which the judge decides, not whether the defendant is "guilty" or "not guilty," but whether there is enough evidence to force the defendant to stand trial. In making this determination, the judge uses the "probable cause" legal standard, deciding whether the government has produced enough evidence to convince a reasonable jury that the defendant committed the crime(s) charged.

The "probable cause" standard is different from the standard for conviction, which is typically guilt "beyond a reasonable doubt." Probable cause refers to the existence of a logical basis for the prosecution, as opposed to strong evidence of guilt suggested by the conviction standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt." This means that winning at a preliminary hearing can be more difficult than winning at trial. Difficulty doesn't mean impossibility though, and a success at this stage can result in charges being dropped."

Post#341 by Guest Jun. 28, 2018, 11:53AM

Tried to find the answer to this question but can't:  Are the preliminary hearings part of the trial, or is there generally a time delay between the hearings and the actual trial?  I'm not overly familiar with the concept of preliminary hearings.

Post#340 by Guest Jun. 26, 2018, 11:52PM

Thank you, poster 339. Looking forward to see it reach trial. 

Post#339 by Guest Jun. 24, 2018, 04:23PM

Contact  the media? Ok, Preliminary hearings for criminal charges on Aug 1.

I heard August for the criminal trial.

I love how that sounds; "criminal trial"

Post#325 by Guest May. 19, 2018, 07:28AM

Have you ever met an internet troll? A troll is a special class of sociopath.

These nasty individuals are the sadistic ne'er-do-wells of the digital realm, the misanthropic misfits of information age. Unlike a normal person, when a troll enters an online discussion, he is not seeking truth or clarification. He usually doesn't even know how to debate in an intelligent manner. All he wants to do is inflict pain, ridicule, and humiliation on a targeted person.

Encountering an internet troll can be a disturbing, even frightening, experience for someone who has not had to deal with one. It can be an unexpected event, a strange twist that takes the discussion to a whole other level. You are taken off guard and find yourself struggling to defend yourself, instead of exploring a topic.

You're posting comments on a blog, forum, or social media platform like Facebook or Twitter. There are probably other people expressing themselves, some agreeing with you and cheering you on, others disagreeing with you and trying to debunk your assertions. The conversation is heated, or passionate, but civilized. Strong opinions are stated and countered with other strident points of view.

Suddenly, someone, usually anonymous or using a nickname (pseudonym), starts attacking you. They may use filthy language, wild insults, and crazy misinterpretations. Often they will put words in your mouth, along the lines of "So what you're saying is...." or "Nutjobs like you are only interested in ...."

The main tool of the troll is accusation. It's a form of psychological torture, to break you down by turning your words against you, twisting your statements and pounding away at one aspect of your viewpoint. No matter what you declare, the troll will question you as a person. Understand this immediately: it's you as a person that they are attacking.

Personal attacks are often banned in forums, and not tolerated in blogs and social networks. Administrators tend to block and remove anyone who engages in trollish behavior.

The troll doesn't care. Trolls don't follow the rules or terms of service. They jump from one platform and one conversation thread to another, causing as much damage as possible. If they get kicked off a site, they'll try to return, using a different username or a different computer.
Trolls are easy to recognize by their mode of operation. They will never compliment you for a smart statement, or admit that your question is difficult to respond to, or tone down the rhetoric with a smiley emoticon.

Trolls accuse and insult. Trolls needle you relentlessly. They love to flame others. They enjoy causing grief, making another person feel bad. Trolls will quickly move from serious discussion about an issue to a sustained personal assault.

The goal of a troll is to disrupt an online discussion, picking on one person, or on everyone who expresses a particular point of view. Trolls will also invade a presentation on a live videoconferencing channel or an audio podcast where people can phone in and ask the presenter questions.

Recently I encountered my first audio troll on my internet radio broadcast on BlogTalkRadio. My topic just happened to be dealing with trolls. Someone called into my online studio and I connected him to my show. Immediately, instead of thanking me for taking his call, he started accusing me.

"You haven't mentioned the intelligent troll. Why is that?" he asked, all pompous, with a deep professorial voice. I replied, "There is no such thing as an intelligent troll, sir. That's a contradiction, an oxymoron, an impossibility."

I let him pester me for several minutes, mainly to demonstrate to my audience how the guy was a troll, how he behaved, and how to mess with a troll. I kept hammering away at how an intelligent person doesn't pick fights with people just for a sadistic thrill. He kept trying to advance the idea that intelligent trolls exist and should be respected for their high IQ. I set a trap for him. I asked, "Do you consider yourself an intelligent troll?" He replied, "I think there's a little troll in everyone."

I cut the troll off by saying, "Well if you have anything more to say about the alleged intelligent troll, go ahead and say it, otherwise, I'm going to return to the topic of my show." He started to mumble another accusation about how I refuse to acknowledge the "intelligent troll" and I hung up on him in mid-sentence.

This brings me to the issue of how to defeat a troll. Here are a few quick pointers on troll-smashing that you may want to copy and paste into a text editor, print out, and tape to your computer monitor for future reference.

(1) Ignore the troll. Just refuse to interact with him. Respond to others in an online discussion, but shun the troll and give no reply to any of his accusations or remarks.

(2) Post "don't feed the trolls" in the debate thread and leave the conversation. Let others deal with him if they want. Just identify the troublemaker as a troll and move on to other websites or activities. If a person is trolling you via email, just stop opening and reading their messages. If you can blacklist them to prevent them from sending you emails, do that. If it's on Facebook, block -- don't just unfriend, but block – the person and if necessary, report him as abusive.

(3) Keep hammering away at your viewpoint, harden yourself like steel, and never give in. If you want to disturb the troll for a short while, just to give him a taste of his own medicine, you can relentlessly restate your opinion, in complete oblivion to anything the troll says, like you're not even reading his remarks.

(4) Misinterpret his statements. This is a very effective technique for derailing a troll and making them upset. You may even provoke the troll to give up and leave the conversation thread. Twist what they say and make it seem like the troll is agreeing with you. "I agree. Thanks for seeing my viewpoint. We seem to be on the same page now. That's exactly right. Glad I was able to convert you to my opinion."

(5) Praise the troll in a facetious way that translates into not-so-subtle rebuke. "Oh my, you are so incredibly well informed. You are the smartest person in the whole universe and everyone should sit at your feet and soak up your wisdom. Nobody can argue with you, for you have all the answers." Then sign off and leave the discussion with "You sad and silly troll."

Remember that the only purpose of a troll is to antagonize and cause trouble. There is no point in trying to reason with a troll. Generally, they are not educated in debate or rhetorical skills. All they want to do is hurl slurs and incriminations. They want to make you angry, upset, confused, and exasperated. They want to take over the conversation and reframe it as an analysis of how bad or stupid you supposedly are.

Trolls may have been victimized by a mind control cult based on humiliating people to cause them to go into meltdown mode, so they can replace a personality with their cult's indoctrination. Other times you may suspect that a troll has been abused by a rogue psychiatrist who was keen on dismantling a person's inner self and then manipulating the defenseless victim.

No matter what their origin may be, trolls enjoy raining on parades, maliciously pouncing on innocent people, and acting like a verbal predator. Trolling can turn into cyberstalking and cyberbullying (intent to cause serious harm or even suicide).

Learn how to quickly recognize a troll and you've won half the battle.

Mess with them briefly to expose their true nature to others in the audience or the discussion, then kick them to the curb by leaving the conversation. If necessary, report the troll to an administrator.

Post#238 by Guest May. 20, 2017, 05:25AM

2 old men.who wins? Noone wins. But the 2 old men certainly lose the most. They have nowhere to go but down. Their victims can move on and hold their heads up high.

Reminds me of lyrics and video to a very fitting song in the case of Bill and Colin.

https://youtu.be/amWvI3d8k7U

 
Track art
 
 

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

And after a while, you can work on points for style
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone
Dragged down by the stone (stone, stone, stone, stone, stone)

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel

Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home

Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the ston

Post#237 by Guest May. 17, 2017, 07:01PM

There aren't any investors responding to this post. I will leave it to the Court of Queen's Bench Calgary to deal with the BBoys. Ten years on, the damage done to so many investors. A couple of old men in jail? Who wins?

Are there any updates as to what these two are up to now?  I can't imagine how they are managine to scrape together the money required for two large and very expensive law suits (fraud & class action).  I believe they have/had land in Canmore--perhaps that's been sold or is up for sale.  Someone may get a good deal.  

Post#228 by Guest Mar. 05, 2017, 06:09AM

I just found out about the arrest and upcoming trial. I then googled one of their names and found this website. This is just wonderful! Looks like the FBI was involved. Good thing for these two dudes that they were arrested here and not in the States. There is much harsher punishments down there. I Still cannot understand how these people get it into their heads that it is OK to take other people's life's worth of hard earned money and assume it is theirs. Is it a mental problem? Do they really believe in their minds that this is valid behaviour? Well they will now learn all about responsibility for their actions and the consequences.

Everyone , their trial is not until April 2018. Call off the media haha. Pretty sure they won't be taking any sunny vacations to the south, unless they do it illegally. (Would not put it past them). Anyways, this gives them another year to mull over their futures.

Post#201 by Guest Dec. 11, 2016, 07:31AM

Yes, but having their names all over the media as the thieves that they are, and looking forward to an impending criminal trial, their lives can't be too good right now. All the friends and family that they had fooled into thinking they were good guys now know better. How proud they must be of their wonderful little developers who suddenly made it big..the mansions, the sports cars! the parties. Their families and friends must have thought they were sooooo successful, until they read the papers last June. What a disappointing let down. They story of the BBoy's lives. Imagine having to look in the mirror. Glad I'm not them.

Post#200 by Guest Dec. 10, 2016, 06:40PM

I suspect CRA has their hooks into the BBoys for tax evasion. Sadly, given the time it takes to have these cases heard, despite The Chief Justice for Alberta calling for more judges to be installed, it will be a long time before the BBoys are tried on the charges.

Bradley declared bankrutcy Nov. 25th, 2010. Public documents state $876,372 in Liabilities, Total Assets $104,000. Living down south in the lap of luxury? I don't think so.

 

Post#191 by Guest Dec. 05, 2016, 02:14PM

You kidding me? Too cold for their tender skin. I'm sure they are in the sunny south getting their toenails polished And eyelashes extended. Apparantly, accused frauds and thieves can travel freely across the border until convicted. Wonder if Colin will enjoy his future penthouse like he enjoyed his past one?

Any word on whether the FBI will also be laying charges on these guys in the States? The FBI were involved in the fraud investigation.

What about the other projects that Bradley and Becker diverted funds for? The present charges are just for the Bridgegate (Crowsnest Lake) scam. What about the other Crowsnest Pass projects and the one in Canmore?

I heard over $100 million was raised for all of them...$100 MILLION!!! (nothing built in Crowsnest, at all, and the Canmore condo was started and left to rot...approx cost to build what is there rotting appraised at $8 million).

Hey #160:

I know the RCMP have charged them, but I'm curous about where you got your information about plea stays etc, and where this judgement about them on August 24th comes from.

http://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abqb/doc/2016/2016abqb433/2016abqb433.html


Thoughts?

Post#161 by Guest Sep. 10, 2016, 02:52PM

No they are charged with indictable offences 334(a) and 380 (1)(a) under the Canadian criminal code as shown in the following criminal offence penalty chart. The court appearance was to enter their plea for the above charges and I believe the plea is reserved at this time. Probably not fun times for the 2 of them. They may be experiencing the stress and anxiety that they caused so many others over the years. Too bad for them.

Replying to # 157, 158, the latest news I have seen is this:
 
Their Lawyers went to court on August 11th 2016.

However, this court appearance doesn’t seem to be about the RCMP criminal charges for Crowsnest Pass, but about a class action suit by Derek Da Silva (and lots of others) against them for further fraud in a River Run Vistas project.
 
Apparently, Bill Bradley & Colin Becker declared bankruptcy in 2010 and it appears you can’t sue anyone until the bankruptcy period has expired (in this case in 2019).
 
On August 24th 2016, the presiding Judge lifted their bankruptcy order to allow the River Run investor’s class action suit to proceed.
Post#158 by Guest Aug. 12, 2016, 09:50AM

Just a preliminary hearing. Probably nothing happened except  lawyers trying to delay things. Will eventually go to trial. The 2 asshats probably didn't even attend.

Post#157 by Guest Aug. 11, 2016, 05:35PM

The BBoys had a court hearing today according to media reports. Any news?

Post#146 by Guest Jun. 19, 2016, 02:24PM

When the verdict is read, I hope to be there when they lead these two scoundrels out in handcuffs.

Post#145 by Guest Jun. 16, 2016, 06:51PM

I thought there would be many more posts with 'high fives' with the news of the charges being laid. I suspect the investors have gone elsewhere. Hopefully justice will be sought at the end of the day.
