Small Victories

You would almost think that someone reads my blog and took my request to heart.

Have a quick peek back to these two blogs for a refresher about this.

The place where nightmares are made - April 13, 2009

I swear I was out of town - March 21, 2010

I was pleasantly surprised last week when I heard on the news and read in the paper that New Brunswick's Supply and Services Department rolled in and flattened the vacant buildings at Kingsclear Central Reformatory.
It only took them one day to smash them to the ground.
I wish I had known it was going to happen. I would have liked to see that.

As you know I have stated publicly on many occasions that this should be done.
Kingsclear Reformatory is a horrible place that will haunt the province's soul forever.
Many boys were molested by those charged to watch over them and help turn their lives around. Instead lives were destroyed.
For many years the buildings had sat vacant and looming over the Saint John River valley as a reminder for everyone who passed by.

I saw no way that a good use could ever be put to the buildings when such horrible things took place here.
The buildings had to come down.

Now they have except for that large white boarded-up house. I'm not sure what they are thinking in keeping that. They should just finish the job and rip that place down as well.

I had to see for myself and so I scooted out there last Thursday and took a few pictures of the great work.

This was the way it looked before the demolition.

A much better view now, wouldn't you agree?

In a coincidence and related news I read a couple of weeks ago that the world's slimiest slimeball Karl Toft was released from custody on May 4 after being charged with breaching the conditions of his recognizance order.

For those just tuning in dirtbag Toft was a major player in the whole scandal and was convicted of molesting more than 200 boys in the 1980's while working in Kingsclear Reformatory for three decades.

I suppose I've said enough in my other blog posts to show how I feel about this lowlife.
He was released from jail in Edmonton in 2001 and stayed there after realizing that returning to New Brunswick would likely be detrimental to his health. (You know what I mean.)

It appears that Mr. Toft was seen in a fast-food restaurant. However, his recognizance order forbids him from being anywhere that might be frequented by children. Fast food restaurants are frequented by children so this scumbag will have to learn to buy his food and prepare his meals at home.
This is a minor inconvenience when you consider his luxury of living among free citizens. I do not believe that he deserves that luxury.

This is the first time he's been charged with breaching his order but I'm betting it won't be the last.
We're watching you Toft. Very closely. If you think this freedom thing is ever going to be easy, think again.

I wish there was more that we could do to make Toft's life totally miserable but this will have to do.
For now.

Stay well,
