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.

Thankyou for pointing this out. I just ordered Sheldon Kennedy's book, Why I Didn't Say Anything.

Thanks also to Geeders, have called in some money I'm owed as I want that book soon as (by Fleury) - it has UK pricing on Amazon so the minute the payback of the loan is sorted, I'll order it.

...Frigging Amazon UK, the book's been out a day, still no shipment, why have a listing in British money if the book hasn't been imported for sale yet!! Last time I make that mistake, I'll have to try and pick up the next Canadian book another way.

There's no such thing as "watching him good and close." He should not be allowed to be around boys ever. Period.

Although I may be wrong, my recollection is that when the Spanish autorities were alerted to the fact that the man was a perp, they sort of turned a blind eye to it. I think he is still there. But as I said, I could be wrong.

New York Times story today on Fleury, his memoir and the sex abuse. The Times says Fleury's book is the number one non-fiction book in Canada.

"In Fleury's Memoir, Ranger Years Are a Nightmare"
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/16/sports/hockey/16fleury.html?scp=2&sq=Theo%20Fleury&st=cse

Fleury also has a website for male sex abuse victims: http://www.1in6.org/

Now there's no Brit postal strike anymore, may get on with ordering this after all, and not read that story properly if it's quoting selective parts of the text.

As for that website, didn't have the patience for it, might be useful for some, but not all. Maybe it's been updated to include Fleury's input, last I checked that top cyclist was the newest disclosure on it.

The Canadian Parole Board pardoned Fleury's abuser Graham James three years ago, but the Prime Minister just found out about it. Also, another victim of James has just come forward.

From the Toronto Star today "Hocky Coach in Sex Abuse Case Pardoned":
