  1. This is particularly hard to wrap my head around.

    WTF was she thinking? Nursing pays good money.

    This woman is one special fool. Was it outright greed? Was she all messed up on drugs and/or was she being manipulated?

    Either way, she’s taken herself out of an excellent job and turned herself into a criminal. So sad.

    1. She was only a RPN, they don’t make that much money. She was obviously hard into drugs looks way older than 24!

    2. Not hard to fathom at all Rex. Look @ all the messed up professional athletes. Loads of money. I think that’s the problem with drugs nowadays, try it once and you’re hooked in a lot of instances. I’ll stick to my weed.

    3. Why are people so hard on people when they are at their lowest. There would appear to have been some circumstances that brought about this brain fart, lack of judgement for this young girl. Everyone makes a mistake or two, I hope that things work out for this kid.

    4. She got herself involved with the wrong people in Sioux Lookout the downfall was years in the making. Wrong people, getting addicted to drugs. There was a turning point but either not many people seen it or failed to help in her to separate her from that world. It fell to this extremity and there were warning signs but sadly she didn’t get the help to kick the drugs. We don’t know all the facts as there were two people involved until the court hearing happens we will see what the verdict is.

    5. Not necessarily.
      She belongs to a union.
      And a college.
      In both , they can protect worker licensing to an almost unbelievable degree- not as disgusting as the College of Physicians and Surgeons has historically accomplished.
      But for practical nurses and registered nurses, the protectionism can be there.
      There has been a large swing of the pendulum with drug user “acceptance”- unfortunately

      Hell- even the liberals tell ppl weed is Aok just so they can make $

  2. Her nursing career is over so in a way if she was an RN her criminal activities are going to cost her well over $50000/yrs. With $116k in her cookie jar earning money by working at a real job like the rest of us doesn’t hurt. Of course she was moving large quantities so some gang is going to be pisses cuz it was likely their cash that was seized. She isn’t going to look so hot once criminal or street justice is done with her

    1. She’s got to be a fairly bright person. Getting a legit nursing degree takes a lot of personal commitment and a lot of difficult education and training. And she pissed it all away. SMH.

      Sorry, No Gladue for this one.

      When she gets out of the slam, she might be able to find work in some third world country that’s hard up for trained medical personnel and are willing to overlook her drug dealing past?

    2. that’s a train.
      Dirty Mike and the boys are gonna pimp her out to homeless men from the back of a Prius.
      They fill the back seat with as many men as they can and they all have their way.
      They call it a soup kitchen.

    3. She doesnt have a degree- she is a registered practical nurse ( a nurses aid)- and she has a union…dont bet she’s “over”

    4. Good grief Tim Williams you hope things work out for her. I hope the dirt bag does 15 yrs and is banned for life from that community but will likely get only 4 yrs because of mandatory maximums and the aggravating factors. She looks white so no Gladue for her. Resident doesn’t necessarily mean she’s native. Such grotesque abuse of trust and power. How about holding her accountable for all the lives she’s destroyed or damaged and the impact that it would have in community. Tell that to the little children who’ve been apprehended by CPS because of their drug addicted parents or families who were victims of theft for addicts to afford drugs and families of those who have died of overdoses. SMH

    5. An RPN is not a nurses aid! RPN’s can do everything an RN can do except TWO or THREE skill. Take some time and research the CNO for your facts before you open your yaps. We don’t have nursing aids we have PSW’s.
      RPN’s and RN’s are licensed by the same college (the CNO)
      Where I work RN’s make 3-5$ more than an RPN. We work the same shifts, all do the same skills, and work as a team. I can pronounce a death, take blood, start an IV, and everything an RN can do except give drugs via a PICC line (IV line straight to the heart).

  3. It is truly disheartening when a community such as Sioux lookout desperately needs medical professionals as we do also attracts medical professionals that would cause harm to the very people she is supposed to be here to help. A total betrayal of trust. I am happy that our police force is working so hard to stop the drug use not only in our community but helping to stop elicit and dangerous drugs from reaching the northern communities with an epidemic of drug use and addictions.
    Sadly her link to the hospital sheds a bad light on other medical professionals. I hope people will remember that she is a rare exception and a disgrace to the medical community.

    1. The most disturbing aspect is that of someone in the medical service industry selling meth. That shit is outright poison. The idea of a nurse providing such a debilitating and addictive drug boggles the mind.

      Certainly she must know of and have seen the results of extended meth use. To be able to do something as callous as dealing this drug, tells me that this woman is stone cold heartless.

      Whatever penalty she gets won’t be enough. Hopefully the judge doesn’t drop the ball this time.

      Whenever there are large seizures of drug money, all of the proceeds should all go directly toward drug rehabilitation facilities and programs.

    2. Also she only became registered RNA in 2017 so this was most likely planned to plant her in the Hospital. Good on all those who figured out how to arrest this person. It takes a Community to find a criminal and to prevent one.

  4. Or, contrary to all the other comments, she could be innocent and a victim of ‘wrong place at the wrong time’. Ya, you do get arrested if you’re inside a house where a large quantity of drugs exist even if you didn’t know it was there.

    1. Yup the court of public opinion, really shows the ignorance here. This alleged kind of involvement is huge and she is young. Something doesn’t ring right here, even if this does turn out to be true the way it is reported, this is the extend of the drug crisis and our young. Glad this crap is off the street of course, but the bigger problem is that it was available. Wonder who is at the top of that pile? And just to educate many, a registered practical nurse is a diploma program and they are not an ‘assistant’ or an aid. They practice independently within their scope of practice, if you all had bothered to read the site posted. Drugs affects every profession so how about let the courts figure it out!!

  5. Pretty sad. Hard to understand why she would turn to drugs. Kinda hope it was the guy doing it all and she didn’t know but doesn’t look like it. Live and learn.

  6. What a disgusting disgrace on the profession.
    I will vomit if her fkg union gets her off this charge and doesn’t permanently revoke her PRACTICAL nursing license.
    She is not a Registered Nurse.
    The hospital should be doing an in depth investigation in to any controlled substances she had access to and speaking with any other employees.

    1. And practical nurse is a REGISTERED practical nurse. The union has nothing to do with revoking her nursing licence – it’s the CNO who does that. You should researched their webite- there you would figure out that RN’s and RPN’s are licences by the SAME college. We can all do the same skills minus one or two things. While you’re there you can report her charges since you’re so concerned about this “nursing aid” 😂😂😂

    2. Several things here… A union cannot get someone off charges. They have ZERO influence on criminal proceedings. Also, a union does NOT have the power to revoke a license of any sort. An RPN is REGISTERED and is so much more than a nurses aide….. Educate yourself. See the page from the CNO above. And remember, innocent until proven guilty…..

  7. There are major drugs in all cities in every province of this once great country. The black gangs have taken our loved ones and turned them into slaves for drugs, money , street cred. Mental illness and the lure of easy tax free money rule their lives once they get a taste. Sioux Lookout is no different then and other town. Tbay/kenora/ignace/Nipigon/ and all the way to Toronto/Ottawa/Hamilton/ Quebec and every other province. Scum bag gangsters that would kill their own family for money and drugs.

  8. This could happen to any family having a child that is hooked on drug and their victimes . They become addicts and party with the wrong crowd. Lets pray for this terrible gang so that they stop taking more victimes .

  9. You think she is the only health care professional thats into drug’s? Guess again hundreds of them at our hospital in the bay. Doctors too. She’s in a bad place in her life at the moment. Not everyone is as perfect as you people? Stop with all the running down of others and maybe just maybe you can grow up and stop calling names that is if you are all over 12 cuzz I’m pretty sure that is when children grow up.

  10. All the people shitting on rpn status don’t know most rpn programs are the old rn program crammed into a 2 year diploma program. Have all the knowledge rns have, some have more.. it’s a two year program but I can guarantee most people wouldn’t be able to do it. She’s a smart girl intellectually but definitely fucked up big.

  11. Bad life choices for this girl.. hopefully she can overcome this. But for real. Educate yourself on RNA’s, nursing assistants vs. RPN’s and RN’s. You all act like you’re superior to an RPN because an RN went to school a bit longer, or can do like 3 skills more. RPN’s work just as hard as an RN, some even harder. RPN’s still save lives, just the same as an RN.

    1. “…went to school a bit longer.”
      No -YEARS LONGER
      RN have a higher education level, a higher skill set, more certifications and greater responsibilities. They are able to attain more positions of leadership and education and responsibility. They have degrees.
      Their assessment skills can be higher. They also have a wider education base to attain more responsibilities, such as becoming nurse practitioners.
      Rpns and RN belong to the same college- but they are not the same .
      RPNs were previously known as nurses’ aids., but now have more education than previous
