King's UC "devastated" by L'Arche inquiry report, describes Vanier’s actions as "reprehensible"

February 26, 2020

King's University College Principal David Malloy says the school is "devastated" after a L’Arche report uncovered sexual abuse from L’Arche founder Jean Vanier. An internal report by the charity found that Vanier engaged in “manipulative sexual relationships” with at least six women. "The actions described in the report are reprehensible. Our concerns and thoughts are with those who had the courage to come forward and share their painful experiences," wrote Malloy in a statement. "As a community, we will support L’Arche in their ongoing search for the truth and healing." Malloy added that the institution’s recently launched Jean Vanier Research Centre will be reflecting on the findings and will engage with the community on the impact of these findings.
