Description

Algonquin College Speaker Series Presents…

Join us on Monday, March 19, 2018 at 7 p.m. @ the Waterfront Campus to learn about how for three years in the 1980’s, Canada’s most notorious bank robber was living a double life in Pembroke. Gilbert Galvan, an escaped convict from the United States, had taken on the alias Robert Whiteman and told his new wife that he was a computer salesman, requiring him to travel frequently to destinations across Canada. Galvin would fly with Pembroke’s regional airline, Pem Air, before transferring to other flights where he would rob 59 banks and jewelry stores, heists totaling $2.3-million. Galvan would eventually be caught, arrested at the Pembroke Airport, and sentenced in a Pembroke courtroom to 20 years behind bars. Now, the journalist who broke the story of Canada’s Flying Bandit and co-authored a book on the subject, Ed Arnold, shares the story of one of Canada’s most daring armed robbers.
