The release of Robert Pickton's book comes on the eve of another key moment in Canadian history

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Robert Pickton has released a book through a publisher in the United States, despite it being illegal in Canada for him to do so.

“Frankly, I am disgusted by it,” says Ernie Crey, who’s sister’s DNA was found on the Pickton property. He believes the book will cause pain for a group of people that have already been through tragedy.

“I can see this is going to cause a lot of difficulties for families and I’m troubled by it. Of course, I haven’t seen the book.”

He calls the timing of the release ominous.

“It comes on the eve of a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls and I’m upset about it, but the other folks that are going to be troubled by this are the families Mr. Pickton’s victims.”

Crey asks that no one buy his book.

“There are books out there in the marketplace written by reputable, high-profile writers about the murders committed by Mr Pickton.”
