Preliminary inquiry proceedings are scheduled to continue March 15, 16 and 17 against a former Anglican minister and OPP officer.
The preliminary inquiry for Ralph Rowe got underway Jan. 31. He faces over 70 sex charges for incidents he allegedly committed at nine locations in Northwestern Ontario between 1971 and 1987.
Rowe, who now lives in New Westminster, B.C., is charged with 38 counts of indecent assault and 34 counts of sexual assault against a total of 35 male victims in nine different settings, most of them northern First Nations.
He also volunteered as a boy scout leader.
