Gerry Therrien was currently leasing out his entire loft where the grow-op was found and started. He had no part in the actual foundation of it what so ever. Because he is the owner of the property the two accountable go unnoticed and blame goes to Gerry his son Luc Therrien and Houston Roach who to blame and be " held accountable" for this action is completely ridiculous and untruthful.
On a second note, where the grow-op was found was in one area in the loft which was rented out... not the entire barn, it was completely not near any of the animals held on the property.
I dont see how its acceptable to write a story on Gerry Therrien when there are tons of other drug busts happening and nothing goes said about them, only because Gerry Therrien is "somebody" to make look bad and get the writer a bigger paycheck, and 15 minutes of fame thinking he/she did a "good deed".
Gerry Therrien has done nothing but good in this community he has brought millions of dollars only because he lives and works his animals here for the past 18 years, him and his family do not deserve this type of immature slander from a bunch of people who have no idea what they are talking about.
.. i would expect more from a newspaper who apparently is supposed to be telling the truth, not trying to make innocent people look bad judged on what they have "only heard".
Maybe wait for the facts next time before you go around trying to embarrass families who have nothing to be embarrassed about, because they have done nothing.

Gerry and his family deserve better than this kind of slander, all full facts should be reviewed first before any of this garbage is put out which will hurt the family and reputation!!!!!! I have known Gerry for several years and his love and passion for animals is unmatched by anything!!! He is a good man , I am asking everyone out there reading this to not judge based on this article !!!!

I have met Gerry and seen his way with the animals and his kindness towards people. He isnt one to jepordize his animal and family. he would never put any substances like pot near his animals.

Yes, you must know more about this than the police because he's "a nice guy and cares for animals". The police must have it all wrong. Good point. Talk directly to them...maybe they'll tell you what they told the judge?! Better yet, check the BC Court website for the verdict.
