I got home around 1 am. A wonderful whirl-wind to Winnipeg and back! I’m shaking my head wondering if it was all a dream. Hard to believe I’ve been there and back.
The media awards luncheon was well attended -held in one of the beautiful rooms at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. I am still in awe of the dedication and commitment of those who made it happen and who work tirelessly in their ‘spare’ time for Beyond Borders. They are all very busy people who somehow find time to commit to making the world a safer place for children. Such a pleasure to meet them and be in their company 🙂
The trial of Monsignor Robert Borne continues this morning at the Pembroke court house, Pembroke Ontario. I wold imagine start time is 10 am as it was yesterday.
New charges against Oblate priest and former fugitive from justice Father Eric Dejaeger omi. These from Edmonton, Alberta – before he was ordained.
Congratulations to the complainant who summoned the courage to go to police so many long months ago. It’s been a long wait, but the charges have been laid. Good for you!
I encourage all those who have sex abuse allegations against Dejaeger to go to their local police station, or pick up the phone and call them. There is no statute of limitations on sex crimes in Canada.
A reminder here that Dejaeger also spent time on Ottawa, Ontario. And he spent time in Repulse Bay. And he was out in Langley, British Columbia for a spell.
I may be out tomorrow – not sure yet what my schedule is. For now, I’m calling it a day :).
Enough for now,
