Public Inquiry to Be Called into Sylvestre Case

CD98.9 [Canada]
August 18, 2006

A London law firm will call for a public inquiry into the case of an Ontario priest recently convicted of sex offences. The law firm, Ledroit Beckett, will also say three Ontario priests convicted of sex-related crimes should be removed from the priesthood. 83-year-old Reverend Charles Sylvestre, who formerly served in Port Dover, pleaded guilty last week to 47 counts of indecent assault. The firm is holding a news conference this morning. CD 98.9 will be following the story.
