Description

CBC examines the "Scandal of the Century," a horrific event that ended up not to be true. It was alleged that "sixteen people had been charged with sexual assault. The details were grizzly: pedophilia, ritualistic abuse, tortured babies, innocent children. One of the people charged was a 14-year-old girl, in grade nine. It would soon become known as the Scandal of the Century. There was just one problem: The story was not true. Perhaps the real Scandal of the Century was how these unfounded allegations - the heart of which belonged to a single, seriously disturbed young boy - could ignite a police investigation that would destroy more than a dozen innocent lives."
