Cornwall Catholic Church is Persecuted by
Victims of Cornwall Catholic Church Paedophiles?

Further to your website and David's material, I wish to commend David and all of his oranization for getting to the truth about so many issues across the world.

As I read and try to understand what is going on, I look around in my own community and see the same things operating at a micro level. Currently, 115 charges have been laid against paedophiles in Cornwall since 1993, and not one of them has been brought to trial! The Ontario Provincial Police claimed to have left "not one stone unturned" in 1994 and abandoned the case. It was not until a Cornwall police officer, Perry Dunlop exposed the participation of the Catholic Church and several paedophile priests and he (believe it or not) was suspended by the police force. Later he was exonerated by the province and he has since had to leave the area, because of the terrible pressure and turmoil that the family experienced.

To date, the Catholic Church officials have now claimed they are being "persecuted" by the's really hard to take their hypocrisy. Not one of the persons finally charged has had a day in court....ALL charges have been remanded to 2001, and will probably be remanded again. The courts are in on this, the local MP Bob Kilger has nothing to say on this however the local MPP, John Cleary, supports a private member's bill put forth by Garry Guzzo, who has proposed Bill 103...which calls for a complete and thorough independent investigation.

I am enclosing a recent release from the Ottawa citizen, which in my mind, has put the whole matter in perspective.

The local newspaper, the Standard Freeholder, as you would expect, is in a state of denial. It is sitting on the fence on this one. Too much money from too many advertisers at stake.

It seems that we are, as a community, in a state of denial. Others around us are saying there should be an inquiry, but it's like the situation never existed.

Many lives have been destroyed by this paedophile ring and include people in the legal system, police, Catholic church, probation & parole. We need some serious cleansing in this community.

Clearing the air in Cornwall

The Harris government is failing in its responsibility to safeguard Ontario's justice system by not supporting the efforts of one of its own backbenchers to uncover the facts surrounding an alleged pedophile ring in Cornwall.

Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Garry Guzzo has made it his personal crusade to get an inquiry launched into how various police forces investigated allegations of sexual abuse against minors in the Cornwall area. Some of the claims go back to events in the 1950s, while other alleged incidents took place as recently as 1998.

So far, police have laid 115 charges against 15 men, including three priests, two lawyers, a former coroner, a teacher and a prominent business-man. But none of these people likely would have been charged if a few local residents hadn't taken it upon themselves to conduct their own investigation, at their own expense, after Cornwall and provincial police concluded in 1994 there was no wrongdoing.

Even that civic action would not have been possible, however, if a veteran police constable on the Cornwall force, Perry Dunlop, hadn't had the courage to tell the local Children's Aid Society about one of the alleged victims, who had withdrawn a civil suit against a popular parish priest in exchange for a $32,000 cash settlement and a promise not to pursue criminal charges.

Mr. Dunlop's action prompted many alleged victims to come forward and tell their stories. This new evidence, coupled with the information gathered by the citizens' committee, compelled the Ontario Provincial Police to relaunch its investigation in 1997, leading to the 115 charges.

Most people would have praised Mr. Dunlop for his principled stand, but not his supervisors on the Cornwall force. They charged him with breach of confidence and discreditable conduct, although he was later exonerated by a provincial board of inquiry and the Divisional Court. He has since resigned from the Cornwall police, and this month received a prestigious award from a U.S. law enforcement agency for his ethical stand.

There are many disturbing aspects of the police's handling of the sexual abuse allegations in Cornwall. How could the first investigation, reviewed by both the Ottawa police and the OPP, conclude in 1994 no charges should be laid when the subsequent investigation found more than 100 alleged offences? Why did the provincial attorney general's office wait more than a year to give the OPP four boxes of evidence collected by the citizen investigators?

Most troubling of all, however, is the Harris government's lack of interest in getting to the bottom of the Cornwall situation. Mr. Guzzo tried unsuccessfully for three years to have the province launch an inquiry, but when that failed, he resorted to tabling a private member's bill on June 21.

The bill, which has now gone to the Justice Committee for review, would compel the government to set up a commission of inquiry to look into how the police investigations were conducted and whether anyone tried to conceal evidence or subvert the course of justice. It would also examine whether the private citizens should be reimbursed for the costs of their own investigation.

Mr. Guzzo worries that the government will try to bury his bill at the committee stage so it can never become law. Premier Mike Harris has already said he doesn't want to hold a public inquiry that might prejudice ongoing court cases.

The premier should reconsider his position. With careful handling, an inquiry can take place without harming simultaneous criminal investigations. The inquiries into the Walkerton E.coli tragedy and Nova Scotia's Westray mine disaster both show that criminal cases don't have to be jeopardized when concurrent public hearings are held.

There are too many unanswered questions about what has happened - and may still be happening - in Cornwall not to hold a further investigation. If the Harris government doesn't like Mr. Guzzo's private member's bill, it can amend it in committee or introduce its own legislation.

Whatever course it chooses, it must uphold its responsibility to ensure that justice in Ontario is properly administered.
