“The headline on the front page of the Perspectives section of the next day’s Halifax Daily News was almost openly dismissive of the verdict: “Meet Our O.J.: Gerald Regan” read the headline over an opinion piece by popular local columnist David Swick.We understand why you are blocking ads, but just know it compromises your site experience (features may break or not appear entirely) and prevents us from investing in the Future of Porn.The court clerk asked her rote question with a wavering, tell-me-don’t-tell-me tone that seemed to capture perfectly the nervous, nerve-wracked mood among the more than three dozen men and women sitting in the Halifax Law Court’s Courtroom 3-1 on the blustery afternoon of December 18, 1998.
With a book in mind as we were developing the symposium, the participants were invited to select any relevant topic, of their own choosing and personal interest, but that the material had to be new, original and unpublished.
Twenty years ago tomorrow (December 18, 1998), we had our own not/almost/actually-yes Nova Scotia #Me Too moment in the case of the Queen versus Gerald Augustine Regan.
I spent close to five years covering that case while researching a nonfiction book about the avalanche of remarkably similar sexual assault allegations made by close to three dozen girls and women concerning incidents that had happened to them over the course of 40 years before, during and after the eight years Gerald Regan spent as Nova Scotia’s 19an attempt to weave the memories of those women’s encounters with a biographical account of Regan’s private life and public career.
But that doesn’t make what happened in Courtroom 3-1 in the fall of 1998 meaningless.
For significant starters, the RCMP and the prosecutors had taken the women’s allegations of sexual misconduct by a powerful Nova Scotia politician seriously and followed the evidence where it led — to charges and to a trial.
In the light of all that has happened in the last few years, I am often asked — and ask myself — about the significance now of that 20-year-old trial? Perhaps surprisingly — for the times and for Nova Scotia in particular — the Mounties assigned to the file took the allegations, which had been floating in the political ether in Nova Scotia for at least 20 years, seriously, and they doggedly pursued them. Many had long since come to terms with their own encounters with Regan and moved on.
