FBI Swarn Vancover Island B.C. Looking for Most Wanted James "Whitey" Bulger, There Are No Bridges to Vancouver Island Access By Ferry Boat Only, Bulger Is Trapped.
FBI closing in on Irish mafia boss Whitey Bulger? Irish America's most famous gangster may finally be in the FBI's sights. .The feds have been blanketing Vancouver Island in British Columbia with photographs of the former Boston Irish mafia boss Bulger (80), and his girlfriend Catherine Greig (59). They are offering a $2 million reward.
Bulger has been on the run since 1995 and regularly heads up the FBI 'Most Wanted' List. Martin Scorsese's Oscar wining movie 'The Departed' about the Boston mafia was based in part on the Bulger story with Jack Nicholson playing Whitey.
Canadian authorities circulated wanted posters all over the ocean front city of Victoria last week Gail Marcinkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Boston told The Boston Globe. The targeted search in Vancouver Island likely came because of a tip-off, law enforcement sources say. Bulger, a long-time FBI informant as well as a gangster, fled from the law more than 15 years ago and is wanted for 19 murders in the 1970s and 1980s, in Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and in Florida.
A manager of a Victoria bookstore told The Globe authorities had gone to just about every bookstore in the city last week and asked employees to be on the lookout for Bulger. "They came in and just gave us a wanted poster and asked us if we recognized him because he's known to be a book reader,'' he said.
FBI Swarn Vancover Island B.C. Looking for Most Wanted James "Whitey" Bulger, There Are No Bridges to Vancouver Isle Access Is By Ferry Boat Only, Whitey Bulger Is Trapped. Vancouver Island would be an ideal place for Whitey Bulger, (Boston MA) to show up in April of 2010 with miles of beaches on the Pacific much like Marthas Vineyard off of Cape Cod MA on the Atlantic.
Whitey Bulger is a driver, that is how he gets his recreation, he loves the open road and he has taken numerous cross county trips in his Mercury Grand Marquis prior to going on the run full time in 1995, if he has driven a car or a RV to Vancouver B.C. with his gal pal Catherine Greigg and their two small dogs and took the ferry boat to Vancouver Isle B.C. he is cornered.
The FBI is all over Vancouver Island in Canada, they know something, you can bet that there are surveillance teams at every Ferry Boat dock on the Island and that the Airport is under a virtual lockdown. The FBI never does anything of this magnitude without a very good reason !
Marine transport is very important to Vancouver Island for access to the mainland of British Columbia and Washington. There are no bridges connecting the island to the mainland, although the idea of building one has been brought up many times. The only vehicle access to Vancouver Island is via ferries operated by BC Ferries, Washington State Ferries and Black Ball Transport Inc. There are six vehicle ferry routes. In addition, there are three passenger-only ferry services from the mainland to Vancouver Island, Crossing time varies from 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours, depends on where you depart from.
There is one major north-south highway system on the island, which runs along the eastern side. It begins as Highway 1 in Victoria, merging with Highway 19 in Nanaimo, which terminates at Port Hardy. East-west routes are:
Highway 4 between Parksville and Tofino;
Highway 14 between Greater Victoria and Port Renfrew;
Highway 18 between Duncan and Youbou;
Highway 28 between Campbell River and Gold River; and
Highway 30 between Port Hardy and Port Alice.
