Hearings resume at 0930 hours (9:30 am) this morning, Thursday, 18 December 2008. Cornwall Crown attorney Murray MacDonald will return to continue his testimony.
Yesterday’s transcript is posted. There is much in there which is worthy of note, both from Murray MacDonald’s testimony to date and from OPP Deputy Commissioner Chris Lewis. Regarding the latter, there is much to address regarding the OPP’s desire to improve its image by essentially trying to silence Garry Guzzo with accusations that he was spreading nothing but misinformation far and wide.
Note that Murray MacDonald spent about 18 months as Assistant Crown in Sudbury Ontario (1987-1988). Another Sudbury connection! Although his family roots go deep into the Cornwall area, Justice Normand Glaude was born and raised in Sudbury. Glaude practised law in the area. Good chance at the very least the pair crossed paths?
Of interest on that note is the fact that Normand Glaude, Paul Andre Durocher (Bishop of Alexandria-Cornwall) and Murray MacDonald attended Ottawa U at the same time. Glaude received his L.L.B. in 1980, Durocher his B.Ed. in 1980, and Murray M his B.A. in 1981.
A big university, but, who knows who knew whom?
Enough for now,
