A class action lawsuit filed in British Columbia alleges that six Christian Brother molesters ended up in schools in Vancouver and Burnaby from 1975 to 1983. More than a hundred former students of these schools say they were sexually assaulted as a result. of these transfers.
Currently, Edward English is the subject of another investigation by the RCMP in Burnaby, in connection with his teaching duties at another Catholic boys' school, St. Thomas More Collegiate.
The complaint that sparked this investigation came from one of the class action plaintiffs. This man, referred to by the fictitious name Mr. “StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV”>Of all the men convicted for their crimes at Mount Cashel, Edward English received the harshest sentence.
Judge Gerald Lang, who presided over his trial, called him at the time a coward and a sadist who did not deserve to be called a Christian.
I've been practicing law for 30 years now. This is my 11th year as a judge and approximately my 85th jury trial, and I must say this is the worst trial I have ever had to preside over, Judge Lang said.
I wished and hoped that Brother English would say that he was guilty and that he couldn't help but do what he did. x27;he did, that he asks for forgiveness and expresses some remorse, added Gerald Lang.
Edward English served his sentence in a penitentiary in New Brunswick. Released after eight years behind bars, he remained in this province.
