Bramham: Why wasn’t Winston Blackmore charged with child exploitation?
I’m guessing these charges will come later? But, given the snail’s pace the gov’t has taken to get this far, who knows? NM Daphne Bramham: Two child brides gave birth at 16. So why wasn’t Blackmore charged with sexual exploitation?

B.C. polygamy trial does not include a challenge to the law’s validity Vancouver Sun DAPHNE BRAMHAM April 20, 2017 CRANBROOK, B.C. – The polygamy trial of two Mormon fundamentalist leaders is unusual. But the issues and evidence raised have nothing to do with whether the centuries’ old law is valid. The trial could have been that had either Winston Blackmore or James Oler given notice, that they would be asserting their right to freely practice their religion. In Canada, that’s what’s required. It’s not something that a defence lawyer can just casually drop in after the prosecution’s case has been...
