Perry has now spent 114 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children, and then daring to say he has lost faith in the justice system. This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
According to Claude Shaver, “normal” people reading theinquiry.ca would or could believe what they read because they’re not used to reading “garbage”every day. Police officers, on the other hand, are used to reading “garbage” and realize it is garbage! (I assmue that makes them abnormal?)
According to Allan Manson (Citizens for Community Renewal) the name of the website theinquiry.ca is “manipulative” and misleading” and sounds official!
I don’t know where that puts me. I actually wallow in garbage day in and out. Does that put me in a class with police officers and mean I recognize garbage because I read it every day? I personally think it might and does, but I’m not 100% sure that’s what Mr. Manson was getting at 🙂 I do believe in fact that for some strange reason Manson wanted to fire a salvo straight in my direction. And I think he wanted to give me a good hard hit. Not only that, I have the strangest sense Shaver was in on it. I could be wrong there, but, for example, it was just a wee bemusing when Manson asked Shaver if he had ever looked at theinquiry.ca. Brief brief pause. Puzzlement: “theinquiry.ca?” Then: “Is that the site that’s run by Sylvia MacEachern?”
The exchange just seemed unnatural. Orchestrated.
Anyway, once theinquiry.ca was properly identified Manson reached into his grab bag for a few derogatory comments. He determined that the name theinquiry.ca is manipulative, misleading and dangerous!!!
My oh my it doesn’t take much these days for these people to put their heads together and spin, demonize and do what must be done to bolster their conspiracy theories!
Do I think it was a pre-arranged salvo. Highly possible. Probable. As I say, the thought crossed my mind as soon as a presumably puzzled Shaver pondered aloud: “theinquiry.ca?”
My question is why aim the guns at me now? I’m not exactly sure. Barring a couple of slips the gathered throng have taken great pains for over two years to avoid mention or even whisper of theinquiry.ca. Why now? Why with Shaver on the stand? Why from the Citizens for Community Renewal?
We shall see 🙂
Another comment and a few questions on this whole website business.
Shaver testified he had never see Dick Nadeau’s website, but a “friend” in the Cornwall area sent him copies of some of the material.
Colin McKinnon by chance? It was McKinnon who went after Dick with a bit of unfettered vengeance over the Bedrock of Democracy posting.
That’s the same Colin McKinnon who took the bench at the Project Truth sex abuse trial of lawyer and Church canon lawyer Jacques Leduc. The same McKinnon who helped the Cornwall Police Service find a way to have Perry charged under the Police Services Act, and the same one who represented both Shaver and the Cornwall Police Service Board in the golden handshake negotiations between the Board and Shaver, and the same McKinnon who threatened legal action against the Seaway News and Carson Chisholm for printing/saying something about Shaver running for school board trustee which Shaver and McKinnon apparently deemed slanderous or libellous, and, as we learned today, it’s the same McKinnon who represented Shaver after he was retired from the CPS and was sued by David Silmser.
McKinnon has been looking out for Shaver’s best interests for quite some time.
Oh, yes. how could I forget? That’s the same Colin McKinnon who who claimed he “forgot” he had any prior dealing with Perry Dunlop and who, once confronted with the evidence of just a tiny morsel of his conflicts, wanted to carry on at the bench because he thought he was more than capable of handling the trial!!
I’m thinking it could well have been McKinnon who kept Shaver abreast of what was posted on Dick’s website. True it could have been any of a number of people, but I wouldn’t be too quick to rule out Justice Colin McKinnon. He was certainly staying right on top of what Dick posted on his website.
More tears in the stand as Shaver gave his recommendations. Tears for himself and all he has endured. Seems there are a multitude of liars in Cornwall. Everything was fabricated.
No tears for the victims. At least none that I caught sight of. But then again, maybe Shaver is of the mind there are no victims?
And on that note an enlightening recommendation to Justice Glaude that since, according to Shaver, there is much more physical and emotional abuse in homes than sexual abuse there should be mandatory courses on parenting before offending parents are allowed to go back.
Where did that come from?
Shaver denied golfing with Garry Guzzo in Florida. He has, as anticipated, denied any social interaction with Ken Seguin, Malcolm MacDonald and Father Charles MacDonald. He denies knowing Gerry Renshaw. I believe he may even have denied knowing Ron Leroux, but if not outright denial he did deny ever driving with him to Florida .
If there is anyone out there with pictures of Claude Shaver in the company of any of the above or others would you please scan and send them along?
Perry will probably be moved to the Toronto Detention Centre tomorrow. It would be nice if they wait until the weekend, but it’s more apt to be tomorrow. Keep him in your prayers. The change from one detention centre to another is quite a jolt. Don’t stop sending mail to the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre – Perry will get it upon his return and will be delighted, particularly after several days without any mail and without papers.
Still no idea what time things start at Osgoode Hall on Tuesday 17 June 2008. I am still assuming 09:30 or 10:00 am. Plan accordingly. If it is later in the day at least we’ll be there. The hearing will be conducted in the Court of Appeal, but it’s all in the same building as before. Both the Ontario Court of Appeal and Ontario Divisional Court operate out of Osgoode Hall. I will post the address and directions tomorrow or Friday, but certainly in good time to make plans.
I personally am anxious to see Lawrence Greenspon in action.
I’m going to post this now to get it up. Will add links later 🙂
Enough for now,
