HA Neil 'Nitro' Cantrill sentencing June 2, 2021 - Update II

Latest in this near 5 year soap opera is the fact sentencing has been put off again, this time to June 2, 2021.

All three were convicted of aggravated assault, kidnapping, extortion, forcible confinement and overcoming resistance.
HA Neil Cantrill, his son Stephan and HA Robert Lowry all face extended custodial sentences on March 16. Their crimes took place in Aug 2016. It comes almost three years since the trial was set to start in April 2018. Hope resident Richard Houle grew pot for Neil Cantrill for over a dozen years. When Houle told Cantrill in Dec 2014 that he wanted out of the business, he didn’t think there would be a problem. There was a problem in Aug 2016, when Houle was grabbed by Cantrill, his son Stephan and HA Robert Lowry. Houle was brutally beaten and told he would have to sign his house over.
Neil Patrick Cantrill is charged along with his son Stephen Cantrill and HA Robert Lowry for the August 2016 incident in Hope. The trial is going ahead two years after the originally scheduled trial date. The trial was delayed as the three fired their lawyer. Cantrill was an Alberta Nomad but joined Edmonton's Westridge chapter. Cantrill’s history includes a $1,000 fine for possession of live rattlesnakes.
