Sexual Harassment Meeting

All Vatican employees had to attend a two-hour sexual harassment meeting yesterday. Everyone was forced to watch a series of videos and then read and sign a contract that says we attended.

At one point, I tried to sneak out--claiming Papal infallibility--but that didn’t seem to work.

I then mentioned that I needed to pray so that I could release some souls from purgatory. That didn’t work either. The H.R. Department said the souls could wait two more hours while I watched the videos.

I then mentioned the three bean burritos that I had just eaten for lunch--and that quickly got me excused.

Hey, don't you listen to your lawyers? You need to show that you're serious about sexual harassment stuff, or the lawyers will eat you alive.

Vatican named in sex abuse lawsuit

Canadian Press

TORONTO — The Vatican and the College of Cardinals are among those named in a sex abuse lawsuit to be filed this week in Cornwall, Ont.

LeDroit Beckett, a London, Ont.-based law firm, is filing the suit on behalf of Andrien St. Louis, who claims he was abused by a Roman Catholic bishop and priest.

Retired bishop Eugene LaRocque, who lives in Windsor, Ont., and a deceased priest, Donald Scott, are named in the suit.

The Holy See, the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic of Toronto, the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall and the Diocese of London are accused of negligence and vicarious liability of their employees.

None of these allegations have been proven in court.

Ledroit has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday in Cornwall to announce the new suits.

The Alexandria-Cornwall diocese already faces two $3.1-million lawsuits alleging sexual abuse by a former priest.

The lawsuits name current Bishop Paul-Andre Durocher and his predecessor, LaRocque, for alleged negligence involving two plaintiffs, Albert Lalonde and Robert Renshaw.

Lalonde and Renshaw both claim they were victimized by Rev. Charles MacDonald, 72, who now lives in the eastern Ontario community of Glen Robertson.

A Cornwall-area lawyer, Jacques Leduc, also faces a $3.1-million lawsuit from plaintiff Stuart Labelle.

Last month, Ledroit announced 10 other civil lawsuits against clergy, school boards and the government.

Alleged abuse victims Ron and George Glaude also came forward saying they are the nephews of the judge leading an inquiry into long-standing allegations of sexual abuse in Cornwall.

Judge Normand Glaude has said he doesn't know if the two men are part of his extended family, but that the issue shouldn't be dealt with until public hearings begin, likely at the start of next year.

Allegations that a sex abuse ring ran for 50 years were investigated by police in the city for years under the name Project Truth.

They laid 114 charges against 15 high-profile men in the 1990s, but the courts ultimately convicted just one man who had no connection to the alleged sex ring.

At the end of the investigation, police said they found no evidence of a pedophile ring in the city.

The Ontario government has said it hopes a public inquiry will bring peace to the divided community.

Alain Seguin, co-ordinator of the group Coalition for Action Cornwall, estimates 1,000 men have been sexually abused in the city since the 1950s.

An affidavit sworn in 1996 by Ron Leroux, a 58-year-old painting contractor who lived in Cornwall but is now based in Maine, says as a boy he witnessed a "clan" of pedophiles abusing young boys in a variety of ways.

Leroux, who claimed he was abused by several priests, said the "ritual went on on a weekly basis."
