needed a hand. Dave Pickton, runs a construction
business lived nearly all his life on the farm with
his older brother. Today, his life and business are
nearly ruined, Dave, a divorced father of 2 grown children,
lives down the road from the farm on a second family
property. It was the younger Pickton, who ran the show
and protected his "too-trusting" sibling.

and animals. They have a sister, Linda, who left home
as a teenager. Now married and has a family in Vancouver.
Dave said Willy's troubles were the result of his
