About Cornwall and allegations of ritual and sexual abuse:

Cornwall is a town of 47,000 in eastern Ontario Canada, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence river/seaway.  It is directly across the river from Massena, NY. 

As of mid-2007, charges and countercharges of a multigenerational sex ring had been widely circulated for over five years. This ring, locally called "the clan," allegedly involved community leaders engaged in hebephilia (sexual abuse of post-pubertal children), and ritual abuse over an interval of many decades.

A commission of inquiry began in Cornwall on 2006-FEB-12. After many months, the rationale for the commission has largely collapsed. Allegations of ritual abuse in Cornwall by an adult sex-ring were described as "... the biggest and most damaging hoax ever inflicted on this community. It is also arguably the most expensive hoax the country has known." 1

Unfortunately, there appears to have been no effort to investigate a similar case in nearby Prescott, Ontario. There are some indications that it is also a hoax -- but one that caused the imprisonment of dozens of possibly innocent people in what might have been the most serious miscarriage of justice in the history of Canada.
