An update on courtdates:
(1) Brian Lucy
25 June 2014 10:00 am, Preliminary Hearing (booked for one day) Brockville Ontario courthouse (41 Court House Square)
This hearing is open to the public. There will probably be a ban on publication of all testimony and evidence so there won’t be any media coverage of the nature of the allegations.
After the hearing the judge will decide if he/she believes there is sufficient evidence to continue to trial. Sometimes judges rule immediately, and sometimes they take a few days. If anyone hears word that the judge has issued a ruling one way or the other tomorrow would you please pass it on?
Please keep the complainant in your prayers in as special way tomorrow. It will be a difficult day.
(2) Father Linus Bastien
The next court date for Father Linus Bastien is:
11 July 2014: 09:30 am, assignment court, courtroom #3, Windsor Superior Court of Justice , 245 Windsor Avenue, Windsor, Ontario
This IS open to the public, but will probably be over in done with in a twinkle of an eye. I still recommend those who are free to do so to attend. There are sometimes little odds and ends of interesting information to pick up, but sometimes it’s just a case of asking for and picking another date to come back.
As always, keep the complainants in your prayers.
(3) Father Robert Counture
Father Couture’s next court date is:
15 August 2014: Pre-trial hearing
This is NOT open to the public. I will follow up in mid August to get and post the next court date.
(4) Marcel Lalonde
13 January 2015: Preliminary hearing, 10 am, Cornwall, Ontario courthouse (29 Second St. W.)
This will be open to the public, but, as as generally always the case, there will be a publication ban on all evidence and testimony. It is at these hearings a judge decides whether he/she believes there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial
The hearing is booked for one day.
Please keep the complainant in your prayers.
Well, I have been plugging way at transferring data to theinquiry.ca. It seems it’s going to be a never-ending job. I had my days this week where I was a tad overwhelmed by it all 🙁
Anyway, I have been posting pages and articles. And oh my what horrific trip down memory lane this is! I am horrified. As close as I was to the Cornwall sex abuse scandal and cover-up I find I am still absolutely horrified at both the abuse and the cover-up. Horrified.
I have been adding little bits of information here and there as I can to enable people to put the pieces together a little more readily. I know it’s difficult to to get a handle on it all, and realize the difficulty even more so now as I work to get things back online and realize the multitude of connections. I am trying to get blogs linked into articles updated, but there are so many names I still need to get posted that it is proving extremely difficult. Equally difficult to deal with is the spin doctoring.
I came across and re posted an article which I penned some years back in sheer frustration. The whole Cornwall scandal is such a tangled web that I was at wit’s end trying to sort out how to tackle the misinformation and spin. I finally came up with this parody:
That is truly how ridiculous things were in Cornwall! I hope for some it sheds a little light on the mess 🙂
I asked a few days ago and will ask again that you go to the theinquiry.ca and click your way through pages, articles and links. That is the only way all of the information is going to get back out into the public domain. In fact, if you can do sot, please click away a few times a day. The more clicking the better. If you stop to digest some of the content in the process so much the better, but for now the important thing is to let the search engines know that all of that material is back and settling into a new corner of cyber space.
As you click your way around The Inquiry you will notice the addition of a lot of information over the past few days, -and also a multitude of articles which still need to be posted and linked. The latter will be filled in in due course.
For now, to get you going, here are a few names and articles which have been added and need clicking (when the page opens if there are links there which need clicking that would be a bonus!):
The Office of the AG
The Father Carl Stone documents (Please take the time to read these! I still have to link these into the chronology on the Father Carl Stone page – but I think these speak for themselves

12 February 1985: Cornwall Immigration officer Fern Lebrun to Father Carl Stone referencing Ministers Pernit of January 1985 and advising further extensions will probably not be approved. Stone must leave Canada by 24 January 1986 .
09 June 1985 (Sunday): Stone Sister Dolores Kane to Bishop Larocque re her disappointment with Bishop Larocques response to he telephone call on Friday and reiterating her concerns re Father Carl Stone
21 June 1985 (Friday): Bishop Larocque to Fern Lebrun advising that Father Stone has resigned and returned to NY state it is therefore no longer necessary to pursue the matter of Stone staying in Canada beyond January 1986
There is information to be added on many of the pages – decided in some cases the thing to do was get the basics up and then as I get on top of it I’ll go back and add the information, and the links to articles (also to be added) and tidy up the layout.
So, start clicking..
Enough for now,
