A 50-million dollar public inquiry that examined how seven institutions in Cornwall, Ontario responded to widespread allegations of child sexual abuse since the 1950s, released its report. Attorney General Chris Bentley said even though it was expensive and failed to determine if a pedophile ring had operated in Cornwall, the inquiry was crucial because it gave victims a voice. (The inquiry found that children in Cornwall who were sexually abused or at risk of being abused were sometimes further harmed by the authorities entrusted to help them.)
