Chris Selley, Dan Gardner and Parker Donham: Rehtaeh’s Dad has a message for you (updated)


Glen Canning is Rehtaeh Parson’s father.

UPDATE: Check this out: Rethaeh’s friends and supporters were attacked and stabbed, and even then the RCMP and the Nova Scotia authorities did nothing.

    Well done. Please keep watching this case and upcoming inquiry, your attention and insights are needed. And this case just gets stranger and stranger. Latest news from Chronicle -Herald brings a new element. “March stabbing of boy may have link to attack on Rehtaeh”
    If all of this is true I can see why the parents are so distraught and why it was so vital for an outside “agency” like Anonymous needed to get involved.

    Seems like Coal Harbour has lost control of law and order. The RCMP seem unwilling or unable to do anything about these young thugs. The town’s people seemed cowed or terrified to do anything. While Anonymous has certainly kept up the pressure, one has to question whether a group with by definition no citizen’s oversight and with no formal law enforcement training is the right way forward. Seems ironic that we sent the finest young men and women of the Maritimes to fight in Afghanistan against the woman-hating Taliban while our own communities are being terrorized by misogynistic thugs.

    An old but good strategy:

    On 19 September 1880, Parnell gave a speech in Ennis, County Clare to a crowd of Land League members. During his speech, he asked the crowd: “What do you do with a tenant who bids for a farm from which his neighbour has been evicted?”. The response from the crowd was: “kill him”, “shoot him”. Parnell replied:

    I wish to point out to you a very much better way – a more Christian and charitable way, which will give the lost man an opportunity of repenting. When a man takes a farm from which another has been evicted, you must shun him on the roadside when you meet him – you must shun him in the streets of the town – you must shun him in the shop – you must shun him on the fair green and in the market place, and even in the place of worship, by leaving him alone, by putting him in moral Coventry, by isolating him from the rest of the country, as if he were the leper of old – you must show him your detestation of the crime he committed. This speech set out the Land League’s powerful weapon of social ostracism, which was first used against Charles Boycott.

    So, if these boys come to class the teacher suddenly feels sick and won’t teach. The restaurant is suddenly out of bacon and eggs. The bank teller is suddenly out of cash. The mechanic says it’s going to take about a month to get that part. Etc, etc.

    Good afternoon.

      I like the idea of sending them (and their parents) to Coventry, but that just won’t happen in a community whose moral sentiments have been corrupted to the point where what happened to this girl still is not recognized by a significant portion of them as rape under the law. The whole fucking awful lot of them need to be tuned up. Only enforcement of the criminal law can do that.

    Moral failure destroys countries, cities and communities like nothing else.

    Here is what has crossed my mind from time to time.
    I have seen the privacy protectionn for young offenders work well. Most kids who mess up straighten out after a brush with the justice system.
    However, a few do not straighten out. They continue to offend, and the privacy protection begins to protect kids who intend to cause harm, and it renders vulnerable everyone else. The privacy protection becomes a kind of mask for the repeat offenders.

    So, suppose we tweak the privacy provision. If a kid confesses to or is found guilty of an offence, or is diverted to non court processes, one consequence for sure is that the privacy protection is gone for any subsequent offences.
