Are these people crazy.?????  A freekin' parade with horns honking.  Who is the brain trust that thinks this stuff up??  I cannot think that her mother and father would allow this to happen. Someone call the town hall and plead with them not to issue the parade permit.

I appreciate the need for awareness, but is there anyone in Pictou County that is not aware?????

Sorry for the rant, but I would be mortified at this type of display if my child was missing....
All these "events" are bothering me. Idle hands as someone else suggested, I guess

Okay, this officially blows my mind. I'm stunned, absolutely flummoxed. Who has a parade for a missing person? That just doesn't make any sense.

This does nothing to raise awareness, and considering they need a police escort - actually several, since they're hitting up each town - it's going to take police resources away from finding the missing girl.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - something has to break, now, before this entire county loses it. The rumours are outrageous, the hysteria keeps mounting, and while the kids seem to want to keep a be happy kind of attitude, I'm seriously concerned about the grief if this ends badly.

Have they gone kooko , where are all the police, besides the ones on the search.  The police must stop this foolishness before some one else is hurt, or run over or some other horific  thing.  The town needs to pull together in a respectable manner .  This make the whole town look like idiots if that is allowed to happen.  Hope the citizens of the county band together and put a stop to that charade.

I agree with you on this one. I understand the need for awareness, but I think people's frantic emotions are driving them to be overzealous on the "awareness" forefront. It is certainly nice to show support and awareness but people do not realize this CAN compromise the investigation. The longer she is missing the worse people feel so they compensate for these emotions by doing things that may make them feel better. Like organizing event after event. Donations and posters are wonderful, but I am worried somewhere that the perpetrator is feeding off of this attention. I hope that is not so, but I worry about how this could affect the investigation.

Another thing I'm concerned about - this fellow Kris that's running the ng talks website with all the links to the Amber information. Most of his sources are Facebook posts, but he's setting his site up to resemble a media source. It's not reputable, but people are turning there for info. I have no idea who this fellow is, but I don't consider him credible. And I think it's bizarre that he's playing journalist - not an ideal job in my eyes! Considering there was already a fake police Facebook page, this makes me leery. Something just doesn't feel right about things.

Pleasecomehome.  I agree.  A parade would be an insult.  Her missing is not a joyous thing,  I get the impression that there is nothing to do in Pictou County for the youth.  Frankly it is a problem in many towns across Canada, so PC is not alone.

Police do not waste their resources. As I have often read when searches are taking place, the police will say  "We search where the evidence leads us" And so, where are they searching(?)

Kris is a good guy. Is he exploiting Amber's disappearance for the benefit of his website, absolutley. But it's done with the best of intentions I'm sure. The site was started before Amber went missing, but wasn't active because there wasn't much to talk about in NG. All he's posting is pics, links to news, poster templates, and info on the events. Plus he truly wants it to be a place where people can go to get all the info they need to help out.

I've heard of a prayer service and a candlelight vigil for someone missing, but a parade, please tell me that is not happening. Well I'm glad I'm on this side of the causeway, because that is totally off the wall. This is nothing but disrespect for a missing person. Why not have a prayer service at one of the churches and if someone wishes to leave donations, they can pick a spot for that. But a parade, what big brain thought that up. Sorry, but totally not appropriate.

The parade is just like the fireworke MC wanted to set off at the 2nd or 3rd vigil. It's like bringing birthday cake to a funeral. A cruel joke.

I get the impression that even if the BF was charged and it was backed up with evidence, there are a few who would still freak out on this thread claiming what a great guy he is.  I realize that only the police know what this BF is claiming about all that time elapsed before he decided to notify police.  Unless Amber was the type who went her own way whenever she chose to (thus this might be the reason he just went back home and to bed ..or whatever he's claiming) but from all I've read in the past week, Amber seemed to be a "dedicated girlfriend".  There is a lot of doubt in my mind about the boy friend.
 
I just can't seem to wrap my mind around anything "innocent" about him.  I hope I'm totally wrong, but nothing about him and the whole ordeal surrounding his actions adds up to me.  Unless the two had some sort of "open relationship" where it wouldn't be strange for one or the other to disappear that way in spite of agreeing to meet.... then, there's something awfully wrong about this BF. 

I'm sorry if that offends people, and it would be great if I'm totally wrong.  Since he put himself this far out into the public with his all-one-sided story, he should expect this type of opinion as well as the opposite.  That poor beautiful girl will possibly never get to tell her story.

If you would like to see a video with regards to this, go to You Tube and type "Come Home Amber" in the search box.

I think people just need to remember that when they have one finger pointing at some one , the other three fingers are pointing back at them.  a lesson my beloved father taught me many years ago.

Well Pictou County has stumbled across this site, Unsolved Canada, and there are many other cases on this site of young girls/young men  missing in this country. Some have been found, and many have not. For those who have not been found, and long after the press have wrapped up their reporting, we try and keep their names "out there", with hopes that someone will step forward with information and report what they know to crime stoppers.
Quite frankly, it is difficult keeping up with the names of lost loved ones.
Sadly there are far too many.
I hope that Amber is not one of those statistics.  I will be thinking of both sets of parents tonite. And I pray that PC citizens and the families  have their answers soon.
Bless all of you.
JB
