    I'm completely floored by this one. I can't remember his RC username but it was through RC that I met him. Definition of the well-respected, clean cut, lead life by example kind of guy. I don't know how to grok this one:

    https://www.thechronicleherald.ca/n...sident-charged-with-making-child-porn-550521/

    He would have been on RC ... 15 years ago? Maybe his handle was just PeterM? He and I actually met up for lunch once or twice - he was new to Halifax and I'd just moved back. We didn't really click but kept in touch over the years. His son was the same age as my kids and I'd see him at various events and we'd always chat.

    Jesus. I'm in complete shock, honestly hoping this isn't true.

    Making Child Pornography, Making an Agreement to Commit a Sexual Offence Against a Child. Sounds like he was quite involved. Hoping he gets everything he deserves in jail. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if he takes the easy way out before trial, with such a high profile position, and also stepping down from a church board in Bedford... The RCMP made a request for any other victims to come forward as well. Piece of shit:curse:

    I reached out to some folks who know him better than I do and they verified that it's all true. One person mentioned he'd been to coffee with him just 6 days ago. Everyone is just completely floored.

    If you mean putting a gun in his mouth, then we can only hope.

    I'm still friends with him on Facebook. Was doing a browse through his feed - all happy/positive/etc. Then I get to a picture someone else posted of kids at the Bedford United Church kids' group that he was tagged in and, wow, my stomach churns like crazy. I know some of those kids, too. Jesus.

    I've had some people in my life who I've come to find out were on the receiving end of the demon you speak of. (Not literally the same guy, just creeps like him) and you'd honestly never know it. They have grown, done their best to move on and become stronger because of it. That's my perspective anyway. If there's any solace in that.

    One of the people who is the most important to me was a victim of sexual abuse as a child and still suffers from the repercussions in their 40's. It's fucked and hard to have any solace.
