A note to our readers
A previous version of this story was about a disabled Sudbury man who called himself Stephen Barns, who had written a book about his struggle living with disabilities.
After CBC News published the story, we became aware that this person had deliberately misrepresented himself, and his past, to CBC News. His real name is Mark Carroll and he was convicted in 2011 on charges of sexual interference and drug trafficking. He spent 18 months in jail.
In light of this information, the story has been deleted because it did not live up to the Journalistic Standards and Practices of CBC News.
