Perry Dunlop is a political prisoner. He has now spent 198 days in jail – on a six month sentence! – for civil contempt of court!!!This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse. 



Hearings resume at 1300 hours (1 pm) this afternoon (Tuesday 02 September 2008).  Bishop Paul Andre Durocher will resume his testimony.




A bit of a health scare in the family on Sunday.  Thanks be to God all is well, but a wee bit of a scare and a good few hours in emergency. 


Nothing accomplished on the website 🙁




Helen got in to see Perry at Toronto’s notorious Don Valley jail yesterday.   A good and welcome visit for both 🙂




I am hoping and praying for better from the bishop today than a few tears after saying he would like to punch Father Gilles Deslaurier in the face!  I expect better from a man of God, particularly a bishop in the Roman Catholic Church.  How pitiable .


This is the bishop who mocked the victims during his installation as Bishop of the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall.   While a number of sex abuse victims picketed outside the cathedral in Alexandria carrying symbolic teddy bears Durocher took to the lectern inside, pulled out a knapsack which was every colour of the rainbow and, with a grin, and to the unfortunate but great delight  of the congregation, pulled out a teddy bear.



I have posted some pictures from the 28 August 2008 Rally at the Weave Shed.  Media put the numbers in attendance at around 60.  I’d say perhaps 70, but in truth didn’t do a count – am going more from memory as I worked through the pictures and saw those captured by the camera and added those who weren’t.  Either way, I have learned over the years that for Cornwall that’s a healthy turnout.   When it comes to the sex abuse scandal and cover-up many in Cornwall just don’t show their support publicly, plus, the forensic unit cameras act as great deterrent.




I see a few stalwarts are still railing about Perry not testifying at this inquiry.  Once again, ….Perry wants nothing to do with THIS inquiry.  He did not ask for THIS inquiry.  Never in his wildest dreams would he have asked for, supported calls for, let alone lobbied for, an inquiry with the mandate given to the Cornwall Public Inquiry.  Nor would have lobbied for an inquiry headed by a  Roman Catholic commissioner with deep Cornwall family roots beholden to the office of the Attorney General for his paycheque.


Perry always wanted and still wants the allegations of sexual abuse, a paedophile ring and cover-up to be properly and fully investigated and the truth to come out.  That will not and can not and has not been done at the Cornwall Public Inquiry.  The inquiry does not have a mandate to investigate those allegations, nor is it capable of investigating the actions/behaviour of judges at the Project Truth sex abuse trials because the trials and federally-appointed judges are beyond the scope of the mandate.  Mandating an inquiry to investigate the institutional response to historic allegations of “abuse” and the policies, practices and procedures then in place is a far cry from mandating it to investigate allegations of a paedophile ring and cover-up. 


I believe I can say with certainty that Perry would have gladly testified at an inquiry with a proper mandate put in the hands of an out of province judge/commissioner who is as free from any and all real and/or perceived conflicts of interest as is humanly possible.




Look at this:   02 March 2008: ‘I have known about Jersey for 15 years,’ says award-winning journalist  Allegations of paedophile rings and cover-ups and police officers blowing the whistle are not unique to Cornwall.
