Hearings resume at 0930 (9:30 am) Monday morning, 26 January 2009.
Five days of testimony left before Premier Dalton McGuinty’s ax drops. I do believe things are rolling along according to the pre-ordained plan. Next week’s busy busy schedule is as follows:
The Honourable Mister Justice Robert Pelletier – Ministry of the Attorney General
James Stewart, Crown Law Office – Criminal – Ministry of the Attorney General
The Honourable Murray Segal, Deputy Attorney General – Ministry of the Attorney General
Jean-Paul Scott, Superintendent of Education (retired) – Prescott & Russell Separate School Board
Factual Overview – Upper Canada District School Board
David Thomas, Director of Education and Secretary to the Board of Trustees – Upper Canada District School Board
Carol Tyrell – Transportation Manager (retired) – for the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry
I caught snatches of today’s testimony. Perry this. Perry that. Perry the other thing. After watching Lidia Narozniak in operation with Marie Henein (Leduc) in 2004, none of this unexpected, but none-the-less hard to take. The same old same old. Perry sports horns and weilds a pitchfork. Never mind what Jacques Leduc did or did not do to those young lads. Redirect and focus on what Perry did say, might have said, could have said and/or should have said. Pour the resources into going after Perry.
It works. It worked for Leduc. It worked for Charlie. It’s working at the inquiry.
I heard a number of things which warrant comment but heard it on the fly and I do want to go through the transcripts to catch what I missed and get verbatim some of the testimony which caught my ear.
In the meantime I will say with certainty that Perry Dunlop did not know C-16 or his family.
C-16’s mother, God rest her soul, would have been devastated to hear the nonsense and misinformation that was entered into evidence as fact today.
Enough for now,
