Dear Mr. Snow

I left a message on your answering machine requesting a call back. I have not heard back. I realize that you are probably a very busy man so I shall try this route.

I am a free lance journalist. I operate a web- blogsite: www.theinquiry.ca/wordpress. The site contains a data base of priests in Canada charged or accused of activities unbecoming their state in life – most of the accusations relate to child sex abuse. There is also a smaller data base which is under development dealing with prominent Catholics. The latter data base includes teachers.

I understand that Mr. Raymond Gareth Stanford has been employed at the Newfoundland and Labrador Sports Centre for some time, perhaps two years?

Are you aware that Mr. Stanford is a convicted child molester?

I am trying to understand how this has happened Mr. Snow. How can it be that a former teacher convicted of child sex abuse is now in working in a sports facility frequented by children and youth?

Was a Vulnerable Sector Check conducted before Mr. Stanford was hired? If not, why not?

If in fact you are aware of Mr. Stanford’s conviction I must ask why you have chosen to place the children and youth who frequent the centre at risk.

Thank you for your assistance in this troublesome matter,

Yours truly,

Sylvia MacEachern

    Did you ever get a response, Sylvia?

    Standford was my grade 8 teacher at Bosco and I remember the day that he wasn’t allowed to come back to teach because he was found out about.

    Shocking to hear that is currently works with children at Newfoundland & Labrador Sports Centre. How on earth does this happen…. I feel sick.

    I have had no response from him Natasha, and ran into brick walls at every other attempt I made to have someone in a position of authority do something to get this convicted molester away from those children.
