Today is Sept 4, 2009; the location is unit 105 at 11030 82 Street NW, T5H 1L9.

Then I kept the bug and the tissue with my blood, gave it to Ripley. He told me it's a bedbug! And he told me I am going to find more of those! 2 nights later, I felt something on my face, and instinctively I squeezed it hard in the dark, when I turned on the light, I saw my fingers with blood!
There were more bites and more bugs found. My body has a few bites now. I killed one full of black blood under my mattress today. Ripley said he is going to fumigate the place, but I must throw away my boxes. I gave him a month notice to get the hell out of here.
Ripley works for the company called Ascot Management Group. The persons I dealt with were Marty Kurpershoek, and Ripley, none of them mentioned to me that it's a basement unit, and that it is infested with bedbugs.
