Cornwall, ON, Dec 16, 2009 — A three-year inquiry into claims of widespread sexual abuse of children in Cornwall, Ontario concluded yesterday. Commissioner Normand Glaude faulted local institutions like the Catholic church, the Children's Aid Society, and the police for looking the other way as children and teens were abused. In a statement delivered yesterday in Cornwall, Glaude said the institutions "failed to serve the interests of justice and the goal of protecting the vulnerable against abuse." Andrew Carroll is managing editor of the Cornwall Standard Freeholder. He told David Sommerstein the report points the finger at high-profile leaders of the community.
