CWN Editor's Note: Pepita Capriolo, a retired Qu├ębec Superior Court Justice, issued a report, commissioned by the Archdiocese of Montreal, on “who knew what when” about Brian Boucher, a now-laicized and imprisoned priest who was ordained in 1996. Capriolo decries a culture of secrecy, shredded documents, and stolen documents in the Archdiocese of Montreal. Cardinal Marc Ouellet, named prefect of the Congregation for Bishops in 2010, was rector of the Major Seminary of Montreal from 1990 to 1994.
