Tune in to CBC’s “As it Happens” this evening. Bishop Brian Dunn (Antigonish) will be interviewed regarding Brother Gregorius, the Dutch Brother Superior who sexually abused a boy at the Harreveld boarding school and was later transferred to Nova Scotia.
The boy, Henk Heithuis, is the lad who was sent off to a psychiatric facility in Southern Holland and was castrated. Media reports indicate that Henk was castrated because he was deemed to be homosexual and/or in retaliation for blowing the whistle on Gregorius.
Gregorius headed for Nova Scotia.
This As it Happens report will fill in a few details of the Nova Scotia connection to this horror story.
I know that As it Happens airs in Ottawa at 6:30 pm (Daylight Standard Time). Check here to find out when it airs in your area.
The segment on Gregorius will be kicking off the show so be sure to catch it from the beginning.
This evening I will post a page of information on Gregorius’ time in Nova Scotia – it’s basically all set to go now. I will post it and then update with info from As it Happens after the show airs.
I have been busy trying to find what I can on Gregorius over the past few days, hence no blog yesterday. I have however posted several articles on NEW to the site. I made no comment on those posted today, – wanted to get them posted as quickly as possible and then carry on with other things which I needed to check into. I will leave the comments totally up to you 🙂
Enough for now,
