Thanks for this, I was on holiday in Canada in September 06 when Sheldon Kennedy's name and case came up on CBC news - though I didn't know about his book then.

I'll look out for this book and try to pick it up when there's a British importer through Amazon.

Nope! Something is seriously wrong in this country when boys are abused and the perps get next to nothing when convicted. Last week I had a bit of a meltdown when I learned a female teacher received 45 days after sexually assaulting a 13-14 year old for a year.

This truly disgusts me...

Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...
what a sensationally inspiring book title for this chronicle!

Playing with Fire

the book title speaks of two perspectives; the one being the perps, who got caught red handed, and the other characterizing fleury's response to the experience: he lives and plays with the passion of a true survivor. a flame that will not be extinguished.

i gotta get this book !

James fled to Europe after being released from prison, and still coaches youth hockey there.

Bet the Spanish authorities and anywhere else he coached in Europe will be watching him good and close as well - there's no developed Ice Hockey scene that I know of in the UK but he wouldn't be allowed in through that door, even if he was allowed in the country.
