Perry has now spent 121 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.
It dawned on me today that Perry has now spent more time behind bars than Ottawa’s clerical sexual paedophile Father Ken Keeler. Keeler founded and ran St. Brigid’s summer camp, a camp for ‘needy’ children. In early 1993 Keeler was convicted for sexually abusing a number of boys. The abuse transpired in rectories and/or at the camp.
Keeler was sentenced to 18 months by Justice Soubliere. After serving less than eight weeks, Keeler was out in a halfway house! (Bill Carroll defended Keeler, the same Bill Carroll who is representing the Cornwall Police Association at the Cornwall Public Inquiry.)
Helen called the Quinte Detention Centre today. She was told Perry was not there. She asked where he is. She was told that that information could not be released. She asked how she could find out where her husband is. She was told she could file an Access to Information request!!!!!
I understand that there is a need to keep information regarding transport of inmates confidential, but this is ridiculous!!!! File an access to information request – and with any luck find out a month from now where Perry is – WAS – right now?
I will assume Perry is on his way back to Ottawa. When I get confirmation I will relay the word.
I am busy with other Cornwall-related business today – things which I have been wanting to get at but couldn’t while the hearings are on.
Bad weather system rolling through for the past few days. It continues. Power outage and computer shut down a while back. Another clanger in the offing. Black clouds. Winds picking up. Maybe another power outage in the offing :(.
JUST HAD A CALL: PERRY IS BACK AT OCDC. He was on the correctional services milk run from Quinte – I believe the 21/2 hour trip took close to five hours. He is in a new cell. His supper just arrived – pasta and sausage in a sauce. Apple turnover for dessert. An apple to spare 🙂
Enough for now,
