Fenwick MacIntosh victim

R.M.

Earlier today, The Supreme Court of Canada revealed it has agreed to hear an appeal in the case of accused pedophile Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh.

The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal had ACQUITTED MacIntosh on a series of sex abuse charges on the grounds the case took too long to come to trial. The allegations stem from the 1970s and did not go to trial until 2010.

Today, men who say MacIntosh abused them when they were boys... reacted with a mix of joy and relief.

R.M. is one of those men.

He spoke with CBC's Joan Weeks after the decision was announced.
