Father George Smith has a court date in Corner Brook, Newfoundland this morning, “to enter a plea.” I don’t unfortunately have a time. Usually these cases are early in the morning, but that is not a given. If you are close enough and free to make a run to the courthouse early in the morning to check and attend please do.
Please remember the complainants in your prayers. And. as always, please send an update or link to media coverage.
Yesterday was a day to try to get some loose ends taken care of. As I mentioned elsewhere, I tried to find out when Father Hod Marshall’s Ontario court date is. Most will recall that Marshall, who is presently incarcerated near Kingston, Ontario, was charged 07 February past in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The last news was that he would be making his first court appearance on those charges here in Ontario.
Well, I thought by now a date would have been set. If it has, I can’t find for the life of me out where or when. Many phone calls later the best I know is that the files are all being/have been transferred from Saskatchewan to Ontario and the case will be handled in Ontario. Who knows where or when? There is nothing to date on the roster in Kingston. Am I checking too early? or, should I be checking the courthouse in Windsor, Ontario? or perhaps Ottawa?
Perhaps I will wait another week or so and try again? If anyone has an inkling of the where or when please pass it along
Father Linus Bastein‘s next court date is 13 March 2012.
Father Rheal LeBlanc scc next court date is 18 April 2012.
If you happened on the site yesterday and it momentarily looked as though it was down, that was not the case. I don’t know what happened but every time I tried to post the following article the site went into a tizzy. I finally found a way around the problem and managed to get it posted. Here is the culprit:

Good news! A lawyer disbarred for taking nearly $1 million from 55 victims of residential schools.
Ash Wednesday yesterday. We are into Lent. A time to remember that Christ suffered and hung on the Cross for love of each and every one of us, and for our sins.
Enough for now,
