CWN Editor's Note: Father Joannès Rivoire, OMI, a missionary among the Inuit from the 1960 to 1992, was first accused of sexual abuse in 1991 and left for his native France in 1993. He denies the allegations but has admitted breaking his vow of chastity with an adult Inuit woman.

His superior in France said that the order’s leaders are “determined to continue their efforts to convince Joannès Rivoire to appear before the Canadian justice system,” but that the priest has repeatedly refused to go.
