The talented and fragrant court admin lady looked up from her work, confused. With good reason.

In November, Antigonish cab driver William Roger MacLellan was convicted of sexually assaulting a passenger in 2014. At trial, Judge Laurel Halfpenny-MacQuarrie heard that an intoxicated female St. FX student awoke in his cab one night to find the cabbie’s hand down her pants.
Following her brief court appearance on April 10, Bonny Beaupre told me she hopes everything works out for both her and her estranged husband, Aboriginal Medium Shawn Leonard™. Then I attempted to take her picture.
“Don’t take my picture,” she exhorted as her hand shot up, grasping my camera firmly.
Born to James and Catherine Beaupre on June 4, 1972, Shawn Leonard had an experience that no child should have to endure.
When he was 15, his father, a military man, had a massive heart attack in the driveway of the family home. Although Shawn, the oldest of two children, tried to revive him before the paramedics came, it was to no avail.
