Survivors Rowe

Header-image-StephenBy Robert K Stephen

(TORONTO, ON) – The Myth of Decency. Just about anything goes into the Toronto HotDocs Film Festival itinerary. In this case, it’s a nasty little piece called Survivors Rowe about north-western Ontario and Manitoba paedophilia.

It is particularly about paedophile Anglican priest Ralph Rowe, who was convicted of initially assaulting some 39 aboriginal boys despite that number swelling to around 500 children.

The chain of destruction caused by Rowe is impressive/depressive; suicides, drug overdoses, substance abuse. A man of God causing hell.

Trusting people were violated and a chain reaction of suffering was caused by one man. I suppose, if not condoned, at least covered up by the Anglican Church.

It is a must-see for those smirking Canadians who think they are above segregationist attitudes, racism, and genocide.

Criticize Goebbels, Eichmann, Botha, and Wallace, but the aboriginal exploitation in Canada by organized religion is beyond all disbelief.

One man, such destruction, and no Anglican Church apology. If there has been a truth and reconciliation process in South Africa shouldn’t the same process be initiated in Canada?
