Aural (oral?) submissions by parties with standing at the Cornwall Public Inquiry will be conducted started at 0900 hours (9am) Monday, 23 February 2009 through to Thursday 27 February 2009. Those hearings will be broadcast via webcam. Submission time will range from 15 minutes to two hours/party.
Keep Perry and his family in your prayers. Ditto all the “alleged”victims of Cornwall. That will be a rough week.
This business of no hearings to follow is taking a bit of re-adjusting 🙂 I thought it would be a piece of cake, but am finding it is unsettling. Much to think about and ponder. Seems to me things are worse now than when this inquiry was first commissioned four years ago this April. I am slowly picking my way through my thoughts and sifting through countless questions which pop into my mind.
Two letters to the Standard Freeholder which are as yet unpublished. These were in response to the Freeholder’s request for letters and calls:

Just so folks won’t think the Cornwall Public Inquiry was a waste of time and money, perhaps some of the players should be recognized.For instance some of the judges and lawyers could be elevated to the Supreme Court, to wit Mc Kinnon, Glaude ,Pelletier, Chadwick, Plantana, Cipriano, Neville, Henein, Manson, Daley, Adams, Mac Donald and Leduc, with Narozniak as the new chief justice. Perchance the poor priests, accused by many, but convicted by none could be made bishops and the former bishop a cardinal. The police should all get promotions or at least a substantial raise in pay. The school boards and C.A.S. must be feted and honored for their relentless pursuit of justice and truth. However, the quintessential troublemaker, and whistleblowing antihero Dunlop should be tarred and feathered and sued, with the proceeds of his estate used to fund an annual victory celebration of the local casuists and sodomites.

As an observer from the States who watched much of the Inquiry on the Internet, it was more than obvious from the start that Justice Glaude’s mission was to cover-up the crimes of the Clan and destroy the reputation of Perry Dunlop.
I watched, aghast, at the treatment of Perry’s lawyer, Charles Bourgeois, by the attorneys, who destroyed his reputation and probably his profession. I was even more outraged at the treatment of Perry’s brother-in-law Carson Chisholm. What was inflicted on both of them was torture, plain and simple. It was like watching a Moscow Show Trial from the ’30s. Contrast that with the kid gloves treatment of Bishop Larocque, the Cornwall Police officials, et.al.
During the testimony of former judge and MP Garry Guzzo, I became convinced the Inquiry was devoted to destroying the reputations of anyone who asserted that, for decades, a pedophile clan operated freely in Cornwall. Despite Justice Glaude’s cover-up, almost everyone in Cornwall knows the cover-up continues, because there are so many politicians implicated in Ottawa. If the truth got out, the Ontario Government could easily collapse.
People of Cornwall, you get what you pay for!

Tor Neilson, an Australian victim of clerical sexual abuse, has launched a petition to Pope Benedict XVI asking that clerical molesters be evicted. Tor hopes to attain one million signatures.
I signed. I am generally not one to sign petitions, but in this instance I succumbed.
I must say here that while I understand why he says what he says I don’t agree with Tor’s views on the Roman Catholic Church as expressed on his website. That aside I fully endorse the intent of his petition – if he manages to reach that goal of 1,000,000 signatures it may just finally prompt the Vatican to take much needed action to purge the Church of all clerical predators. That day must come. Then and only then will the shattered faith of countless victims and their families be restored.
