Why don't the plaintiffs reveal their names?

They aren't teenagers anymore.

Perhaps Mr. Ellison is guilty, but if he's being tarred and feathered, the plaintiffs should reveal themselves.

One of these complains of inappropriate sexual conduct, but slept with him for 12 years.

As a former student of Prince of Wales High School -but not a Quest Student -I saw first hand how these teachers in the Quest program created an almost secret society for the Quest program.
You could almost tell who was in it - there was an air of exclusiveness to the whole group. The teachers had a selection process that involved interviews with the students which allowed them access into the innocence of their victims.
I disagree with anyone who says these women should reveal their names. They were young at the time and being conned by experts- adults,teachers that they should have trusted- and have probably paid dearly in their minds for what happened.The adults in this situation should pay and be revealed for who they truly are -cunning rapists.The fact that they did not beat them into the act is not important.They used those girls as notches on their belt. It sickens me to think that this people represented the teaching profession.
I applaud the women that have come forth to voice their stories.

I completely agree with you Trish. Tom Ellison is a creepy pervert and a predator and his testimony these last couple of days, especially revealing the name of the complainant who wished to remain anonymous, was absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that he actually said that he was doing these girls a favour by saving them from a fumbling first experience in the back seat of a car. What a scumbag
