  2. The priest’s confession: What the Catholic bishops knew – The Fifth Estate
    • Profile
      • In 2015, retired Catholic priest Paul-André Harvey from Quebec’s Chicoutimi diocese pleaded guilty to 39 charges of indecent assault and gross indecency. Most of his victims were girls between the ages of eight and 10. Harvey was sentenced to six years in prison.
      • But before Harvey died in prison, the defrocked priest did something extraordinary — he provided a confession for his victims to use in a class-action suit against the Catholic Church. He claimed that church officials were aware of his crimes for years. When complaints surfaced, Harvey says he was simply moved. Records show between 1963 and 2002, Harvey was moved to a new parish 12 times.
      • Now a class-action lawsuit with more than 100 claimants shines a spotlight on who knew what and raises difficult questions about how clergy abuse is prosecuted in Canada. The Fifth Estate and Radio-Canada’s Enquête investigate Harvey’s story and ask why no charges have ever been brought against church superiors in Canada for covering up clergy abuse.

  3. The List: Unravelling church secrets – The Fifth Estate
    • Profile
      • In an investigation into clergy abuse within the Roman Catholic Church in Canada, we follow abuse survivors on their quest for accountability. They are demanding that church officials reveal secret files — information on who the abusers are or were, who knew about it and what was done. In the United States, judicial investigations are exposing details of the church’s secret archives there. More than 6,700 credibly accused clergy members have been publicly identified. And yet in Canada victims say there is little information. Our investigation focuses on the diocese of Vancouver where the archbishop has vowed to be more open.

  4. Hell to pay: Revisiting the Martensville satanic sex scandal (2003) – The Fifth Estate
    • Profile
      • The Martensville, Sask., satanic sex scandal erupted in June 1992. Nine people, including police officers and private citizens, had been accused of bizarre satanic crimes. They were arrested and faced more than 100 charges of child sex abuse. Investigators believed it was all part of a satanic ritual. The case collapsed, however, and ultimately only one charge against a person was upheld by the courts. A decade after the satanic sex abuse panic swept the prairie town, The Fifth Estate returned to find out how things could have gone so wrong.
