A busy day yesterday. There is a lot happening. It’s late. I think wise for me to call it a day.
No word on the sex abuse trial of Father Charles Picot? Day two continues today (25 January 2011) in Campbellton, New Brunswick. My understanding is that the trial was booked for one-and-a-half days so possibly it will wrap up today. Please post a comment or link as soon as there is news.
By the way, if I counted properly there are now 15 priests in Canada whose cases are moving toward trial.
A reminder too to please continue to send links to media coverage. If I already have the article no harm done; if I don’t it saves me a lot of work 🙂
Enough for now,
Hello Sylvia, Ive been following your site. Id like to know u r interest in these perticular cases are u a survivor, and advocate, a lawyer. I have an interest as i know victims of these types of crimes. Thanks
Josie, I am a Roman Catholic who believes, that, among other things: (1) Roman Catholics have a right to know which of their priests are known sexual predators; (2) Bishops should not wilfully place children at risk (3) the emotional and spiritual damage done to those who are sexually abused by a priest is immense (4) victims of clerical sexual predators are frequently re-victimized by Church officials and by lawyers retained by those officials (5) the cover-up of clerical sexual abuse and the protection of predatory priests must come to an end (6) priest who are known sexual predators must be laicized (defrocked)
Thank you for the reply Sylvia I appreciate that. I too am catholic and share your views i thank you for your website and the updates. I am sure you wk very hard on this. God bless u
