Cap-Pelé take down
Deputy mayor Hector Doiron describes the series of events Monday in Cap-Pelé that concluded with the removal of a sign at the local arena. That sign had been an homage to former and deceased village priest Fr. Camille Leger. Several people came forward to accuse the priest of molestation.
The Archbishop of Moncton told parishioners at Ste Therese d'Avila in Cap Pelé that he believes the men who have come forward alleging that a deceased priest abused them.
Archbishop André Richard spoke during Sunday mass. He went on to praise the men for speaking out about the abuse, which they say happened when Father Camille Léger was a priest in the village, from 1957 to 1980. Here is his interview with CBC reporter Marc Genuist, which originally aired Monday, March 12.
