In June 2013, three upstanding citizens of a small Cape Breton town cold-bloodedly murdered their neighbour, Phillip Boudreau, at sea. Boudreau was funny and frightening, loathed, loved, and feared. Boudreau seemed invincible, a miscreant who would plague the village forever. Silver Donald Cameron, a resident of the area since 1971, argues that the Boudreau killing was a direct reaction to credible and dire threats that the authorities were powerless to neutralize. As many local people have said, if those fellows hadn't killed him, someone else would have.
