Colin McSween remembers exactly where he was on Nov. 22, 1963 — the day U.S. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated by a sniper as he rode in the back of convertible limousine in a presidential motorcade in Dallas, Tex.
McSween, then nine years old, was home sick from elementary school when his mother burst into the room with the dramatic news that JFK had been shot.
Ever since that unforgettable day McSween, an Abbotsford resident, has been fascinated by the assassination of the president — and the debate surrounding who actually pulled the trigger.
His determined research and writing on the subject has earned McSween segments on talk radio, television and in print. He’s also been a featured speaker and lecturer on the subject across North America and contributed to books about the JFK assassination.
This Saturday (Nov. 22) — the 51st anniversary of JFK’s murder – McSween will give a power point presentation entitled “When the truth is found to be lies” at the Immanuel Baptist Church (2950 Blue Jay St.) starting at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
