British Columbia's Liberal Gov't Fails To Protect Victims Of Pedophilia Practiced By Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints In Bountiful B.C.
Even excluding the girls who have already been raped, there are more than 400 children in Bountiful's two, government-funded schools. Half of them are certain to be children who need protection.
More than four months after the list of 31 girls was filed in B.C. Supreme Court, no charges have been laid against the fathers, mothers and brothers who transported child brides into the arms of middle-aged men or against the middle-aged men who brought child brides home from the United States.
The question must be asked: Why not? The B.C. government has a moral and legal responsibility to protect children and prosecute their abusers.
Protecting children and charging child abusers has nothing to do with the constitutional reference case or Chief Justice Robert Bauman's ongoing deliberations.
It seems officials are still stymied by a notion that somehow that might infringe on these pedophiles' religious rights"
