John St. Jean : Grande Prairie man in critical condition after assault

A Grande Prairie man is in a coma in Edmonton hospital following an assault Thursday evening outside the Mac’s Convenience store on 84 Avenue.

John St. Jean, 45, is in the University of Alberta hospital on life support with injuries to his head and face.

Desperate to be by his dad’s side, Dakota Mackay turned to social media in effort to raise enough money for himself and his girlfriend to fly from Nova Scotia to Edmonton.

And with over $6,000 raised on a ‘Go Fund Me‘ page, Mackay tells Global News he also got a call from WestJet offering him free airplane tickets.

“It was really warming,” remarked Mackay. “It was nice to know that there’s still some people in the world who have a heart.”

At last report, Mackay’s father was still on life support at the U of A hospital in critical condition.

His alleged attacker, Kyle Douglas Giroux of Grande Prairie, who is 24, is to appear in court on Wednesday in the Swan City.

He’s charged with aggravated assault and failing to comply with a probation order.

RCMP have asked anyone with information about the incident to call the Grande Prairie detachment, 780-830-5701 or Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477.

      I like to think I’d be the first person to help someone in danger, but you need to be careful how you pick your spots. One wrong move and this can easily be the outcome, or worse, let’s hope the guy pulls through.

    2. Get a different program for displaying video
      Most internet providers are fine with video,
      The video takes to long to display and stops starts and does this all to often
      The load speed is ridiculous

      Then forget the advertising most people don’t watch it or even pay attention to it
      Better to have a link beside the picture then to waste the time
