A Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge has sentenced a former teacher and hockey coach to 15 years in prison for sexually abusing boys in incidents dating back several decades.

In passing the sentence, Justice Jamie Campbell said there is no way to comprehend the scope of the harm caused by 67-year-old Michael Patrick McNutt.The judge said that while McNutt is now a changed person he, like his victims, has to live with the consequences of his actions.

McNutt pleaded guilty in June to 35 sex-related charges in relation to 34 victims who were abused during the 1970s and 1980s. He pleaded guilty to 10 charges of sexual assault, 20 charges of indecent assault and five counts of gross indecency.

Of those 0.084 people that will die, 6% likely to be from covid alone with no comorbidities which is 0.005 people. ...yet most Canadians expected to have their fear brain triggered.

This should have an immediate termination. They haven't been already? Fire them. She is right, unlawful surveillance by police officers.
