While dealing with my sexual abuse case I had nothing but positive experiences during my interactions with the R.N.C. in both St. John's and Corner Brook. I always found them to be courteous, respectful and helpful during such a trying time. They always put me at ease when I found things to be a little overwhelming at times. It can't be easy dealing with our stories especially the content of our stories. A big Thank You to them!

Dear God man! Have they moved your office from Fort Townshend to the dark side of the moon or some other place that keeps you in perpetual darkness and everlasting ignorance of what is going on in your own jurisdiction? There are any number of cover-ups receiving daily maintenance and sand bagging in your neck of the woods. Give your head a shake, go outside and check out the scene, if you find you are still here on earth and living on the Island you will quickly learn that there is a full battalion, headed by your Justice Minister and his Deputy who work full time to ensure that issues of a criminal nature, that cry out for justice, will never see the light of day. No amount of new legislation or oversight, civilian or otherwise, would improve your dysfunctional justice system, nothing will work when the courage and will to do what is right is absent.

You hit all the valid buttons Daniel. This latest spokeslady for the RNC can dance around an issue even better than Paul Davis ever did. In the end she says absolutely nothing.

Excellent article Robert. I think the pieces of (grounded) information provided in your column from the police force's perspective was very informative, and should offer (further degrees of ) succor to those affected from the horrid stories still eminating from the ashes of Mount Cashel's demise. I think your best wishes for these now (still variable) adults, are shared by the broader community. These acknowledgements from those representing 'the safe harbours' for these boy-men, still variably affected to this day' should mean a lot. The sentiments afford a safer listening environment for these 'adults-boys' to share...and that is healing. A Robert Frost parody might offer some suggested succor, perhaps, for the more injured 'adult-boys'...coming out of the darkness, as we hear them these many years later...so many, so rightfully angry, and some psychologically unstable). The world is lonely, dark and deep Promises offered, they said they'd keep While I have many, many miles to go, before I can sleep Still more miles to go before I can sleep How many more miles to go berfore I can sleep....?
