I have known David Forslund for a long time before we parted our separate ways.
Since I was approached to testify about him and to provide information for another inquiry that will change his life in a big way, I’ve been collecting a lot of information and digging up some skeletons he thought were long-buried.
As part of this, I reunited with some old friends. We had a lot to catch up on, not having seen each other for years in some cases. Some of my friends knew David and some of them decided to join me in helping me with new articles and details for the proceedings.
As it turns out we have lots of information, photographs, documents, etc., which will be published in future articles and which will shed light on several incidents. It seems practically everyone who associates with him very long gets screwed and you just don’t leave a trail of wreckage like he has done without it coming around to bite you.
So, why is David Forslund-Love hiding his past? Here is why:
Let’s begin with David’s early days.
David Edgar Love was born in Powell River, BC. When his biological father died David’s mother remarried Per Forslund. In those days children from a first marriage often took on the surname of the stepfather if their real father had died, and no formal registration was done. Thus, at age 9 David Edgar Love was transformed into David Edgar Forslund.
Under the name of David Forslund he committed countless crimes, not to mention people who died because of drugs sold to them by David.
David was trafficking drugs out of Mexico, which he then sold here in Canada. David used his wife, Norma, as a mule to hide the drugs when crossing the border.
David Forslund served jail time for only a fraction of the crimes he committed.
David was a snitch for the police. But his version of the story is that he worked for the police doing highly classified intelligence work. People went behind bars because of David and not because he wanted to “bring them to justice” but because he had to save his own ass, i.e., he had committed so many criminal acts that he could have spent the rest of his sad life in jail. That is why he became a snitch. David never cared about anyone but himself.
What people do not know is that even when being a snitch for the police David kept committing crimes right under the police’s nose. He would rob anyone (friends included) in order to get goods he could pawn for money.
David once broke into a store owned by the parents of one of my friends. David deceived him, asked him many questions about the shop, and then he robbed it.
David convinced a young man (MA) to rob a Drug Mart in Sydney, BC. MA and David cut a hole in the roof of the building and entered the store. Once inside the shop David opened the front door for the police. MA took the fall for the set-up break-in. David set-up MA to get off pending charges against him. For years, we suspected that David was working as a snitch for the police and he always denied it. But some distanced themselves from David because he was throwing people under the bus to get out of his own criminal charges.
In 1979, David fled British Columbia from pending criminal charges but not before he framed one of his friends in Newfoundland for an armed robbery that was actually planned and executed by David. His friend went to jail and David disappeared from the scene. If you want to verify where David was working before he fled look into a company called Compact Cabinets.
David was not just a successful snitch. Like all lying snitches, he was a coward. He coerced his first wife Norma to break into a pharmacy in Sechelt, BC to steal drugs. They broke in, filled bags with drugs and got away. However, David pressured his wife to go back to the shop to steal more drugs. On their return to the drugstore, the police arrested Norma. David, being a manipulator, “persuaded” Norma to take the fall for the robbery. Norma was convicted and sentenced to jail. Norma was a good person who was introduced to drugs by David when she was only a teenager. While Norma was in jail, David began having an affair with his next future wife, Christine. Some of us believed that David framed Norma so he could freely have an affair with Christine. He eventually abandoned his wife and children and married Christine.
In the mid 70’s David entered the Lifeline Drug Rehabilitation, which was a church sponsored group managed by the McGregor family, but soon after joining them David fell back into using drugs. He began to blame the McGregor’s for his failures and was trying to scam them for money – it didn’t work when they figured out what David was up to. But was typical of him to bite the hand that fed him.
Sometimes in the early 90’s David changed back his name to David Edgar Love because he wanted to become a Realtor and needed a clean record. So he switched to David Love because the name Forslund had a long and disreputable criminal history attached to it.
In 1996, the employees of Windermere New Castle Realty had a fundraiser for David because believed David had Hepatitis C and needed a special treatment that he could only get at a clinic in Toronto. When the company found out that the reason David wanted to go to Toronto was to cure his heroin addiction the company fired him.
David was an artist in exploiting older or unattractive women. For example, he began a relationship with a woman (WP) only because she had just received an inheritance. David promptly hooked her up on drugs and used her money to remodel the house in Courtney. Once he got WP’s money, he discarded the lady.
Suffices to say: David Forslund-Love is hiding his past because he has a lot to lose – a real lot to lose when all this will come out. He knows and he’ll soon hear the sordid details – officially.
