My dad died a few years back, I am the eldest sibling making me "next of kin." meaning I have legally the right to be the first to assume his posessions. He told me years ago that he wanted to say sorry for not being a present father in my life but that he had an issue in life that affected him and he couldnt cope and didnt lead the healthiest lifestyle as a result of choices and trauma.
I find this diary or workbook from church he did. In it read that he was sexually abused as a 5 year old boy by a man (name). I was shocked. I called my grandmother (his mom). She told me this man was a family best friend, a reverend , a kids hockey coach.. He moved away. My father reported the crime decades later .. As there is no statue of limitations for child sex crimes in Canada there is a file open.. My grandmother reported him also.
So i found this man online it wanst hard he write ob a blogg signed it i looked it up found his address etc. 60 years diamond jubilee status .. Wow.
HE IS STILL ALIVE.
HOW the hell do I legally put it out there to other people / survivors that they are not the only ones! That they could corroborate and seek justice! I feel so bound by law .. Defamation laws etc. I even called a law office in Vancouver who is defendants of sex offenders and they say keep at it someone will report him. What do i do? Should i not care? Is it ok for bom to live out his life in this lavish home i see on google maps just blocks from kids schools? I am at my witts end. Thanks everyone !!
