I missed this in the paper yesterday – a good friend called and asked had I seen it. No, I had not.
I did a bit of googling and came up with a series of articles re sex abuse charges Monisgnor Roger Bazin, Roman Catholic priest, former military chaplain and former Brigadier-General in the Canadian Armed Forces. As Brigadier General Bazin was the top dog in the military chaplaincy chain of command.
I knew him!
I see that in the initial reports Bazin was denying, and then along comes word of a secret $24,000 2005 settlement against another “alleged” victim. And I see that Bishop Fred Colli claims he knew nothing of the 2005 allegations!! That’s a hard one to swallow, but, we shall see…
This makes me sick, but I am thankful the dirt is coming out into the open.
There are a couple of things I must check on this – will be back with more 🙂
Enough for now
