What a nightmare. I appreciate the thoughtful responses to this article. We need to unite to keep men and women safe from abusers and violent people that hurts others. That horrible nightmare of a person that killed his ex spouses cats should be locked up for much longer than six months. I would love to be part of a network that could help abused people (men and women) get out of these bad situations by looking after their pet. I couldn't afford to do it on my own but if we united to make this a group effort then I would love to be part of this. As an animal lover I understand that part of caring for animals is caring for the people that care for animals too. Please feel free to contact me to be part of an animal care network in my area.

Gamblers Speak Anonymously March 25, 2014

Struck by an anonymous letter about VLT usage emailed in from a person writing under the name “John Doe,” The Telegram launched an investigation into his/her written observations of a lack of detailed reporting of VLT numbers by the Atlantic Lottery Corp. and, more importantly, claims the true impact of the machines was being hidden as a result.

The Telegram found evidence of single VLTs in the province taking in more than $600,000 in cash in less than a year and began to collect stories of continued abuse of VLTs, despite a provincial government push, beginning in 2005, to curb problem usage.

As the stories have been published, people have contact the paper to share their stories as “John Doe” did.

The Telegram encourages anyone who wants to share their story, offer a comment, or raise a concern over VLT use to email: afitzpatrick@thetelegram.com.
