Update on the Amaruk Hoax :Bethany Paquette was not the only victim

I have to hand it to them, the CBC is following up on this story.

It turns out Bethany Paquette was not the only one who got rude emails.

I'm dying to know who did it and what motivated them. Who the hell invents a fake company to troll people?

Shouldn't the police be involved? This does look like fraud.


Bethany Paquette won't back down on human rights complaint against Amaruk Wilderness, lawyer says

He goes on to say that Amaruk Wilderness Corp. is legally registered in British Columbia and Christopher Fragassi is listed on that corporate registration.

"Neither he nor the company have denied sending the e-mails to Bethany, which were published by the CBC on Tuesday," Trotter writes.

He expressed his view that "whether or not some of the emails were sent under pseudonyms, or whether or not Mr. Fragassi has exaggerated the size or capabilities of his company, both the company and Mr. Fragassi himself will need to answer to the Human Rights Tribunal."

CBC News has sent questions to several Amaruk email addresses about the latest allegations made against the company. Calls to several listed numbers reached no one. Their lawyer says these are simply allegations. The company has not made any comment.

 UPDATE: March 3, 2016:  BC Human Rights Tribunal Sides with Christian . It does appear that Amaruk was a legit company.
