Identity crisis

Two women with the same name are causing some confusion with local storytellers.

  • Oct. 14, 2011 9:00 a.m.

The 56-year-old Vera Poole in last week’s police report is from Tsay Keh Dene, further north, and is not the Vera J. Poole who is a resident of Fort St. James.

Vera Poole from Fort St. James is 44 years old, is the manager of the Sana’aih Bakery and the head instructor of the Fort St. James Family Tai Kwon Doe Club, but is not the same one charged with assault.

The local Vera Poole does have a cabin at Manson Creek with her husband, but the woman charged with assault with the same name was just visiting Manson Creek.
