4 DAYS TO FREEDOM DAY: 04 October 2008.
Time served behind bars for caring about children and losing faith in the administration of justice:
Perry served a six month sentence for civil contempt of court!!! He is now serving an additional 30 day sentence for criminal contempt of court. No early release. Unlike other inmates Perry will serve every single day.
This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
I talked to Perry just a little while ago. The phone in his pod has been on the blink again – no telephone Sunday or Monday. But, the phone is thankfully back in service and Perry and other inmates are able to get in touch with the outside world again :).
All is well. Perry’s time is up Saturday 04 October 2008. There is still no specific time given for his release. I have heard that standard release time is 0930 hours (9:30 am), but I suppose he could technically be released anytime after midnight? But, I just don’t know. I will talk to Helen and see if she has learned anything. As soon as I know I will pass it along.
Can you believe that an inmate’s release time seems to be such a big secret?
Anyway, for now, no more Sundays behind bars for Perry. No more Mondays. And after today, no more Tuesdays!
Four days! Hang in there Perry. This chapter of the nightmare is nearly behind you 🙂
The names of witnesses scheduled to take the stand 07 to 09 October are posted:
Geraldine Fitzpatrick – Case Worker, Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry
Bryan Keough – (Former) Case Worker, Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry
William Carriere – (Retired) Director of Protection Services, Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry
Ian McLean – Special Assistant to the Executive Director, Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry
There are supposed to be hearings conducted Friday 10 October 2008 as well, however the Cornwall Public Inquiry website link reads: Schedule for the Week of October 7 to October 9, 2008. Is Friday a day off?
Bryan Keoughis taking the stand next week. That reminds me of some information about his good friend Derry Tenger that I received a while back.
I am told that not only was Tenger the organist at Trinity Anglican church in Cornwall, he was also choir director. My contact tells me Tenger always wore black. Tenger apparently used to take the choir members for sailing trips on his sail boat. The boat was all black. The lettering for name of the boat, something like “Water Witch,” was painted in white.
My contact’s recollection is that Tenger seemed to leave very suddenly, around the mid 70s. There was apparently talk from at least one of the older choir members that “they” didn’t like Derry being friendly with young people.
I am intrigued by the boat. Since Keough and Tenger were good friends – like father and son – Keough should know something about Tenger’s black sailboat. In light of Tenger’s penchant for black attire I would like to hear confirmation of the name of the boat. Was it “Water Witch”? or something witchy? Keough should know.
AM 1220 is now holding a competition for the Greatest Cornwallite Present. I am told that Perry’s name has been submitted. I encourage those who would like to see Perry receive some positive recognition in Cornwall to submit their entries. Whether or not his name would make the final cut for the vote is another matter, but I do encourage victims and citizens of Cornwall to fill out the forms or call the radio station. It truly would be nice to see Perry get some positive recognition from the community for which he gave his all.
People are chipping in to give Perry and Helen a short get-away somewhere in the Ottawa area – just the two of them.

Or, if you want to contribute a few dollars and have the opportunity to do so you can pass donations on to Carson Chisholm, or John MacDonald, or me. We will see that they get to Perry and Helen to give them the enjoyable get-away we all believe is their due – and long overdue.
Enough for now
