Episode 061 – In the spring of 1985, 17-year-old Elizabeth Gail Tucker went missing when hitchhiking from Dartmouth to Southwestern, Nova Scotia. Tucker was the first of many murder victims, from a very diverse pool, of one of Canada’s coldest and most outspoken serial killers, Michael Wayne McGray. McGray was convicted of 7 murders, one of which happened after years in custody. McGray remorselessly admits to as many as 10 more murders and claims, given the chance, he would do it again and again.
Epsiode 046: To celebrate our Halloween 2018 and Dark Poutine’s first anniversary we dive into the paranormal. Mike and Scott share some of their own supernatural stories.

Episode 016: In March of 1982 the small community called Bangs Falls, just outside of Liverpool, Nova Scotia made national news after the local bully, Billy Stafford, was found minus his head in his pick up truck along the side of the road. Someone had ended his reign of terror with a single blast of a 12 gauge shotgun. Billy’s death was news in itself, but who did the deed was even more newsworthy – his long suffering, regularly brutalized common-law wife Jane Hurshman. BONUS: Mike’s personal connections to the area, one of the officers involved with Billy Stafford and Jane Hurshman’s lawyer.
In Episode 007, we head off to Mike’s hometown, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and in particular the nieghbourhood where he grew up. The disappearance and murder of 12-year-old Karissa Boudreau still gets talked about around the small town, especially due to the horrific nature of the crime.
This is Episode 004 of Dark Poutine. Here we present The Halifax Explosion, in honour of the 100th annversary of the disaster.
