Hearings resume at 0930 hours (9:30 am) this morning, Tuesday, 06 January 2008. Former Cornwall Crown attorney turned defender of a number of Cornwall’s real and “alleged” paedophiles will take the stand. He will be followed by Alain Godin, assistant Crown from the North Bay, Ontario region.
I must say I am not looking forward to these last 19 days of testimony in the slightest. Not at all. I think it will all be as hard to stomach as the bulk of the institutional testimony to date. But, away we go. I will stay tuned to catch the crumbs falling, but that aside I have long lost any hope that any good will come of this. The best I find myself hoping for now is that, in his recommendations Justice Normand Glaude will do the honourable thing and advise the powers that a truly independent and impartial judicial inquiry into the whole Cornwall scandal and cover-up must be commissioned, one that is solely mandated to delve into the allegations of a ring and cover-up. I would add that such inquiry must be mandated to delve into the commissioning of this inquiry, the crafting of the mandate and the choice of commissioner.
Note the Shelter 2015 Report. What pray tell is this all about? An “emergency” shelter for the homeless in Cornwall? Under the mantle of the inquiry? With an annual and astounding budget of $490,000?
What are you doing Jamie? What are you doing?
Whose nest is being feathered here?
And look who was (is?) part of this Shelter 2015 committee. Crown Murray MacDonald himself!
Why Murray MacDonald?
And why consult Claude MacIntosh?
No matter. A shelter for the homeless! Thanks to the Cornwall Public inquiry Cornwall may well wind up with a politically-correct nine bed “woman positive, gay/bisexual/transgender positive and culturally sensitive” emergency shelter.
If Cornwall needs an emergency shelter for the homeless then by all means set it up. But, courtesy of the inquiry?
Too much! Too too much.
Just about time to start. Must run,
Enough for now
