Part 6 of the child pornography series
We have looked at the horrible tourism sex trade where a small group of Canadians have gone outside of Canada to sexually abuse children in other countries. We have seen how hard it is for the Canadian government to get the evidence to convict these criminals. We have also seen how the American Show Dateline was a tremendous help in tracking down the location of Donald Bakker’s victims in Phenom Pen, Cambodia. However, sex crimes does not only involve the tourism sex trade. It involves, rape, molestation, and even viewing child pornography without actually touching a child. The remainder of these series will deal with two recent Montreal Child Sex Crimes cases, the first about a Montreal minor league couch and the second about child pornography found on the computer of a renown Montrealer.
The latest arrest for sex crime offenses in Montreal is the minor hockey league coach Gilbert Dube, 55 ,who went to court on October 21, 2010. “He faced six charges, including sexual molestation, sexual exploitation and sexual interference.” His victims were two twelve-year-old, from Ste Eustache and Montreal North The sexual molestation was said to have happened in 2009 ,and police believe there may be others. Dube has been couching for many years. They are urging parents and kids to come forward if they know anything about other molestations, or if they have been molested.
Apparently, Dube admitted sexual exploitation of kids in 1993, and 1995. Phil Mariotti , who has a child that plays hockey wonders why Dube’s history did not prevent him from being anywhere near kids. Antoinette Fiore, a hockey mom goes on to say, “We have to send out children with some confidence knowing there’s some kind of background check. This is public information and there is no justification that the organization should not have found this.”
