Police Seeking Victims of Abuse from College Notre-dame

Montreal Gazette
October 1, 2010

Montreal police are asking anyone who may have been a victim of sexual assault while attending College Notre-Dame a Montreal during the 1960s and 1970s to contact them to file a formal complaint.

The appeal follows the airing this week of a report on Radio-Canadaís Enquete newsmagazine that cited an internal report indicating the Congregation des Freres de Sainte-Croix turned a blind eye to complaints of sexual abuse that occurred at the school during the two-decade period. The Radio-Canada report comes nearly a year after The Gazette published an award-winning series of articles by Sue Montgomery exposing child molestation by clergy at College Notre Dame and other Catholic institutions in the 1970s. Residents of Montreal are urged to contact their nearest police station, while those living outside the city are asked to contact local police. Any files opened will be transferred to the Montreal departmentís sexual assault squad.
