"dundas ontario" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio

"Andrew hunter is asking the city of hamilton ontario to stop tearing down his signs. Mr hunter is an author and artist. And he's been putting up signs in the dundas community in hamilton. They described the life of a nineteenth century resident called sophia bourbon. Ms bertha wasn't in done voluntarily. She was an african american born into an enslaved family in new york and purchased as a child by joseph brant the famous mohawk leader before being sold again to one of the businessmen who put dundas on the map. We reached andrew hunter in hamilton. And do i have you been putting up signs about safiya birthing in dundas ontario. I've been doing it for a couple reasons. One is her story as but largely ignored or misrepresented and her story is remarkable gift that she left us She was enslaved women Who came to the united states to canada and her an interview that was done with her and published in the eighteen. Fifties is the only known. First person account from somebody enslaved in canada and dundas hamilton. Where i live and grew up has the real history of ignoring certain histories leaving a lot of people out of the story. So how does the fiber come to be in dundas scenario. So you have to remember. It wasn't called under at the time. But anyways you go back. She was born in the united states in the hudson valley. Place goldfish killer. She was stolen the ages seven and then taken across new york sold to tie into negative brand the mock were chief who then brought her into what is now canada seventeen eighty five and then she lives with him for about twenty years and then he sells her at the end of his life. to samuel. Hot samuel height was one of the hot brothers who came from the uk and develop mills and everything in dundas. So that's kind of she ends up here and not happens around. Eighty seven that she's purchased and arrives in dundas that the story is is is not well known. But i wouldn't have been known at all. Had it not been for an abolitionist to actually recorded. She's sophia birth in story in this in this book the legacy of slavery and canada so we know a bit about her but you been writing about her is that right spent last four years pretty well exclusively focused on researching and writing You know about and from an under the guidance of severe if you if you will. I'm interested in in the process of history interested in trying to trouble the history of canada. I'm interested in challenging the fact. That's that notice that so little known about the history of slavery in canada but people seem to be like unwilling to engage the history and the complexity that one often encounters in this kind of work A lot of pushback and barriers. An twisting of the story so in the case of safiya here in dundas hamilton. and cluster. Like you know people always want to point off in another direction they want to say. Oh joseph brant you know and then they start talking about cutting misrepresenting who grant was in the history of of slavery within indigenous key these they have rarely actually gone in and said well who was safiya. Where did she come from and yes. She was interviewed. And where we should be grateful. Benjamin drew for coming to canada from boston. Interviewing all these people but more so we should be very grateful to safina's an elderly woman. Who shared this story. This totally unique story and gave it to us and unfortunately her real story has never really truly been engaged with. It's always kind of used for something else. And i hear what you're suggesting that but it is true story that sophia bourbon was purchased by the mohawk leader. Joseph brant and then he sold her two samuel hat. Who is the one of the founding fathers of your town if your city so that part of the story is true. Is it not absolutely true. definitely i mean and and knowing about that is really important to see a person in her owner actually talks mostly about her time with the branson so we learned a ton about that time the issue. I have often around what happens with branches. People don't really go deep enough into understanding who brandt was. Just brand is absolutely one hundred percent indigenous person but he's also highly colonized. He is both an indigenous. Were chief and leader. But he is at the same time very british. he's angle anglican you. It becomes a mason heavily involved in buying and selling of land business deals he very much Embraces what was a fundamental part of the colonial system in the late eighteenth and nineteenth century in in the northeastern united states and canada which was slavery and and now that back the story of sufia bourbon and you have been trying to get people to know the story you've written about it and these signs you're putting up everywhere what is it. Why is the city tearing them down. You know the city says that it's a violation of certain bylaws and rules about Sign edge that. In some cases they suggest their form of graffiti in other cases they say damaging heritage buildings which aren't actually listed as heritage buildings in the city's been tearing down. But are they saying that they don't want you to tell the story or they're against the story is that they're just thinking that are they suggesting. There's another way for you to get the story out about sophia birth into the public eye. They're really only talking about the legal. The law part. It's like there are other ways to do this. You should apply an go through the proper channels and and we have a sign program a plaque program in these things my issue without is i is the committee that oversees these things within the city of is all. You know. it's all white people. They're all pretty privileged white people who don't know the full history and i just don't think that that's the path within public space to talk about these things and so one of the things that's been suggested to me by some folks at the city. Is that while this project of yours. Seems like pretty ineffectual. Because you put them up. We take them down. And i've said well it's not just the city it's also people in the community who tear them down and throw them in the ditches repaint over them. But it's also not been ineffectual. It's actually over. The four months created lots of connections within the community. But it's communities that historically have been ignored and i admit like i'm bending the rules to do this but i think the very rules themselves are deeply flawed and thanks to telling us the story okay by andrew hunters book on sophia birth due out in january. It's called. it was dark there all the time. Mr.

"dundas ontario" Discussed on Whores Talk Horror

"Women's Lib was just getting started and not a lot of people. Were Down with that even still today really I mean. Charon had her her coverage on nature versus Nurture Tatas. You know quite a bit so I think that anytime Ted Bundy would have been born. He still was a psycho and would have done stuff. Women weren't really people at that in that era and their cries for help went disregarded and I think that had things differently they would have caught him wave sooner one one before we move on to our topic of the day. One thing that I thought was like totally shocking was when Susan ran court went missing and they had the boy scouts looking for her body was like how who is like okay. Let's have all these young boys go out in search for a dead body like. Does that still happen? I mean what bad did you get? It was just I was just. That's why I paused. 'cause I was just thinking that for your like dead body finding something. I can't think of anyways boy. Scouts were different back. Then I scout. Oh It's the corpse finding badge. That's the one that they were trying to get That's a very coveted. It just looks like the the white tape or the chalk outline so onto the topic of the day so many night each chose to research and write about a killer that we previously mentioned briefly in past episodes. My killer was actually inspired by Freddy Kruger Nightmare on Elm Street in Mindy your killer. The movie black Christmas is loosely. Based on this person that you're GONNA be discussing. He was slightly. I think inspired the killer in black Christmas but I can talk more about that. If you'd like. Yes so yeah go ahead. I'll go first okay so I'm going to be talking about Wayne Boden. The vampire killer of Montreal. I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this ever. But one of my favorite horror movies is the nineteen seventy four film. Black Christmas directed by Bob Clark and written by Roy. Moore's is completely brand new news to me. I've never heard you mentioned black Christmas. Ever I literally wrote on my notes. Pause for Sharon's comments for as much as I blab about this movie all the time it. It occurred to me that I've never really looked into the inspiration for the film Aside from writer Roy. Moore's obvious take on the infamous urban legend the babysitter and the man upstairs. Which is you know the one the have you checked the children. He's calling from inside the House that that story I've always read that. Bob Clark claimed he and Moore had no inspiration for the concept of black Christmas that the idea was completely original with one exception. Imdb sums it up. Pretty well Bob Clark in a QNA said that he had no inspiration for the film's concept and that it was a completely original idea for him. In Roy Moore. The only thing that inspired the film was the actual series of murders. That occurred in Montreal. And I was like we. Black Christmas is a true crime connection. That was an internet rabbit hole. Just calling my name really so before we go any further. I just want to cite some of the sources I used for the infobahn. I'm about to drown. Y'All all of this content was taken from the following sources. Imdb's Black Christmas page wikipedia entry on the babysitter and the man upstairs. Urban Legend An article from refinery twenty one written by Rachel page Called Black Christmas is based on an urban legend and true story entries on murder. Pedia DOT ORG and to podcasts The first being the dark Putin podcast to crime and dark history the episode is called Wayne. Boden the Vampire Rapist. And then episodes seventy from the podcast big if true Both podcasts are available on whatever service of your choice that you like to use so I encourage you to check it out if you're interested And so now without further ado allow me to present the story of Wayne Boat in the vampire killer of Montreal and inspiration at least in part for the horror classic Black Christmas Holon near Butts Wayne Clifford. Boden was born on New Year's Day. Nineteen forty eight. He was born in Dundas Ontario. I've heard that pronounced a few different ways like by the dentists. So we're going to go with that. His family was middle class. His father was a factory worker. His mother was uneducated. But she's a full time. Stay at home. Mom and strict as hell Known for keeping a tightly very tightly run household chores which were plentiful. require timely completion and had to be done to mom satisfaction. Should ANYTHING NOT MEET? Mom's high standards there would be held to pay Some reports claim Wayne was not allowed in the Living Room. Kitchen family room. Who is only allowed access to the bathroom and his bedroom. Sounds like how I run the household with Spencer? I wasn't GonNa Hang. I'm having flashbacks. I wasn't gonNA say anything. Just kidding a bit of a neat freak for those who don't know Well I have a feeling that Wayne's mom might have put push the limits just a little bit more but I've never seen our living room or kitchen or dining room anyway. Go ahead no comment to say that. Wayne's home is not a loving. One is an understatement. Both of his parents treated him coldly and never showed affection towards Wayne or each other He was an only child and he showed no early signs of mental instability. Like the usual like animal torture or the Oh shit. He's crazy childhood signs in fact he excelled in school and was remembered by his grade school teachers as helpful and a bright student though. He was often picked on by his classmates for being teacher's pet. I'm just GONNA go out on a limb and say that Wayne probably had some mommy issues. growing up in a home filled with rules chores and confinement instead of love and parental support. He whenever it's teachers would ask about his mother Even in Grade School Wayne would say that she had passed away that she was dead. Yeah with my mom growing up and I was a raging bitch and junior high him like. That's pretty you never hateful. Yeah yeah by the time he got to High School. Wayne had grown into actually pretty good looking dude. He played high school football but unfortunately he was extremely extremely shy. Which and that kept him from dating or even approaching girls did he have any head. Injuries do playing football. Not that not that I could find but he only played in high school and briefly so I doubt it but you never know maybe after high school Wayne State local for a bit He tried finding work as a salesman and actually worked for a brief time as a fashion model But it was high time to get out of UNDIS- and so around age nineteen or twenty. A Wayne moved to Montreal Quebec with the intention of starting a career as a traveling salesman which cool. But like if you're shy that's a tough job but okay you're was this. This was like sixty seven. Sixty eight ISH. Oh Okay Yeah. Tra- traveling salesman. That was more of a thing back a Oh yeah. He moved to Montreal because it was happening. And he thought you know he wanted to be in the city and for the fuck away from his parents And Wayne lived A cozy apartment in like the center of town in the fall of nineteen sixty nine Wayne was living down the street from a woman named Shirley Audette Many sources describe Shirley is having been a nervous person with some mentions that she possibly had been hospitalized the year before for quote unspecified mental issues however in late September early October of nineteen sixty nine. Shirley was living with her boyfriend Kenneth when she discovered she was pregnant. So I'm not sure if this is like late sixties early seventies rumor bullshit but a lot of the reports in fact most of the reports I came across about Shirley Specifically mentioned that she was rumored to be promiscuous and even her live in boyfriend doubted whether or not he was the father of her baby. She swore he was but to me. It sounds like Shirley was just pronin. Anxiety likes company especially since her boyfriend actually worked at night shifted his job often leaving her home alone in the evenings but whatever victim blaming as in saint back then I don't. I don't think women had to do much be considered promiscuous exactly so on October Second. Nineteen sixty-nine around three am Shirley's boyfriend was working night shift. And she called him to check in She said she was nervous to be home alone but that she'd met a handsome man whom she'd been chatting with outside Returning home mid morning on later. I guess in the morning on October second Ken came home and could not find. Surely anywhere initially. He assumed she'd run off with the handsome stranger. She mentioned in her three. A M check in phone call but then started to get worried. Is the day war on the next day? October third the their apartment buildings maintenance man found Shirley dead near the back alley way of her apartment complex lying on her back the top half of her body partly sitting up against a fire escape ladder and her facial expression wide eyed and smiling in. Rigor mortis which. I'm sorry. How fucking scary. Would that be to like? Find a dead body smiling at you. The police noted that she was fully clothed except for her shoes which were found later in the apartment courtyard. She showed no sign of a struggle. She had no bruises or even skin or particles under her fingernails though she had been raped and strangled The only marks on her which were determined to have been administered while she was alive were savage bite marks on her breasts and not love bites but break. The skin vicious bike marks. The bites were not mentioned to the public Kept as quote. Hold BACK EVIDENCE. So skip Month or so to November Twenty Third Marielle. Archambault was a twenty year old cute girl who love to be social. She enjoyed her job as a jewelry clerk in downtown Montreal. Like to go out and party at night November twenty third during the day. She came in a work gushing or coworkers. About a man named quote bill. She'd met the night before who is dreamy and was it was going to take her out that evening She left work at closing time with a young man who she claimed was bill though he waited out on the street for her and didn't come inside the shop. Her Co workers remarked that she seemed happy. Entranced by the man When archambault did not report for work the following morning her employer went to check on her in her apartment to see if she was ill together with her landlady. They discovered arching bowl to be fully clad on her couch. The Room was tidy but Morales Pantyhose and Bra were ripped. She'd been raped and there were bite marks on her breasts. The rest of the apartment appeared to shoveled torn up again. No signs of struggler break in and our body appeared posed with a pillow placed under her feet. The police were able to find crumpled photograph amid the wreckage of archambaud apartment Which was readily identified as the mysterious bill by her coworkers. However despite this apparent break the police were not successful in connecting the photograph to any known suspect even though a police sketch based on the picture was distributed publication in the newspapers Wikipedia says that the photo turned out to be Marielle dead father though. I also heard that he was just a friend of hers and his name was not bill either. Way Balls stalemate onto We go through Christmas. And now it's January. Nineteen seventy Gene Way Twenty.
