Sexual abuse survivors seek closure

Wawatay Online

Members of the Ralph Rowe Survivor Network will gather in North Caribou Lake First Nation this November to demolish the old Anglican mission house where Rowe worked as a priest and scoutsmaster.

Nishnawbe Aski Nation communications officer Jenna Young said the demolition is part of a process to give the sexual abuse survivors closure. “The survivors would have an opportunity to have a go at tearing the building down,” she said.

Heavy machinery is also going to be used as part of the process, she added.
