7. He was told that it was called in as "suspicious black man"

A Bathurst man says he was pulled over and questioned by RCMP while driving home from Stonehaven wharf, and was told it was because police received several calls regarding a "suspicious black man" in a white car parked at the wharf.

Louizandre Dauphin, the director of parks, recreation and tourism for the City of Bathurst, was reading an anthology of works by C.S. Lewis.

Couple key points -

* public area. Not like he just pulled over in a neighborhood where he doesn't live just because it was nice and quiet (which was an option left open by the article linked in the OP)
* employed professional - not (just) a "former teacher" as indicated in the OP's link

Doesn't really sound like a depressed person to me. He went to a nice place to read a book. Some shitheads thought he was scary because he was black.

Sigh.
