What about the victim?


The front page of your recent issue (Nunatsiaq News, Feb. 4, 2005) filled me with sadness, for the victim who probably suffered by the hand of a man depicted in color, free and smiling.

This subject could have been worth an article, but not such a tribute to a man, yes, not guilty unless convicted of such, but where doubts exist and, more important, criminal charges too.

Once again, the message sent to the victims is non-supportive. How would you react seeing your abuser in front of you, smiling at you as you try to sip your coffee, as you try to go on with your life? A little support for the victims would have been expected, to encourage them to talk and denounce with courage. No, that picture was too much, too late.
