We are grateful that this predator will be sent to jail for his crimes. Children are safer when predators are behind bars, and so for the next 15 months, parents in Ontario can breathe easier. We urge the Bishop of the Diocese of Hamilton, Bishop Douglas Crosby, to personally visit each parish where Fr. James Boudreau worked and beg victims and witnesses to come forward.
We hope that anyone who has seen, suspected, or suffered crimes at the hands of Fr. Boudreau will be emboldened knowing that he cannot hurt or intimidate them, and will come forward and make a report to police.
