Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio was presiding this morning over court matters along with Federal Crown Attorney Alec Hardiejowski, Provincial Crown Attorney Derrick “The Hammer” Silvestro and a duty counsel lawyer.

Both women are facing the following charges:

  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking (crystal meth).
  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine).
  • Breaching bail conditions (not to contact each other).

  1. Bunch of diseased rats.

    Got to love these excessively flattering pictures these disgusting women post. Take away those FB and Snapchat filters and this skank would look like the true street tramp she is.

    Good to see another piece of shit taken off the street – at least for now. Until those gutless JPs and judges let her out to resume her drug business.

  2. What use to society are these self centred lazy takers?
    Past time to grow up ouelette- you’re a disgrace- get a job.

    And two females also too lazy to have real jobs. Living as though society owes them.
    Poor sad child being born into a directionless, unmotivated, self centred loser life- not even responsible enough to maintain birth control

    1. This is typical of multi generational welfare scamming human trash.

      Why work when you can stay home a collect welfare? Keep pumping out kids to increase their dole and to ensure the next generation of welfare bums.

      As long as we working people in society keep paying their way, nothing will change. These lowlifes have no concept of dignity nor self esteem. Shame is not a word in their vocabulary.

      They were born from welfare recipients and are more than glad to carry on the tradition.

  3. It does not have any ties at all with Broadmore Ave at all. Get your facts straight before you say anything.
    Everyone involved in your story is not even met or even know any of them. How can they be tied together never even
    know who they are since they never met or even been at Broadmore Ave. unreal never talking too or meeting people
    or at someone’s home. That is false information and never should of even said to the public.
    It should be corrected to the public in writing there was not any connection with anyone in this drug bust as well.
    Impossible to even have or be connected. Its wrong and the public should now Broadmore Ave has no ties at all or
    even knows the people in this drug bust…..

    1. There was no gang members taken out of Broadmore Ave. Drug Trap houses have gang members taken out of the home. With also taking people into custody for being in a trap house. Trap Houses have something restraining the
      door inside. With a door person answering the door. Broadmore Ave didn’t have none of this in the house. The only
      people in the home were living in the home. Police charged to everyone living in the home who was in the house.
      Lisa Couch was in the house and living in the home. The police should of charged her as well. She was Steven’s girl friend and lived in the home. How does she keep walking away with not being charged. Lisa Couch is the home owner of
      The Drug Trap house on Dundas St. Toronto gang members were taken out of her home. This is why Steven’s Mother was telling him to keep Lisa away from the house. Told to move out he was going to break her conditions and she didn’t want any trouble with the law. Steven you should of not moved in your mothers house. Your Finlayson trap house you dumped in you mothers yard without even asking her. Left everything outside and disappear for months. Then mad when things get put in the city dump. Everything had mold from getting wet being left outside. Your mother asked you to get your belongs out of the yard. Then you just took over not listening being told to move out. You didn’t even ask to
      move in. Now this is causing more problems and nice to see your girlfriend is the one walking away free. Both you and Lisa should of stayed away like she has been saying all along.
