OMG!! Not this again...
I worked several years in Burnside. Raddall Ave. For two jobs and Ilsley Ave. for another before I left for Aus.

Did they say where in Burnside? The industrial park is rather large.
Weird but at lunch on Friday my co-worker said to me "Sometimes the worst thing that happens (referring to the RCMP killings) is the copycats." And I said "Nah!"
