Canadians generally have a reputation for being goodpeople around the world. If you go to a forgiven country and tell someone you’re from Canada generally they’re pretty nice to you, that is after they’ve made you say ‘eh’ and ‘about’ and teased you about maple syrup and hockey.
And if you’re someone who is working in another country as a part of a not for profit or an aid organization helping people then obviously most assume that your intentions are good.
But one man from Canadawho was doing exactly that has been arrested in the Kavrepalanchowk district of Nepal on charges of pedophilia.
Peter John Dalglish was arrested by a team of the Central Investigation Bureau after being found with two boys, aged 12 and 14-years-old in his room. The boys were rescued and Dalglish was moved to Nepal’s capital of Kathmandu.
Dalglish, was working in Nepal as the founder of the Himalayan Community Foundation, a humanitarian organization which works to help poor and less fortunate families ensure that their children get a good education.
Dalglish had also served as a UN- Habitat country representative for Afghanistan from 2010 to 2014.
People on Canada’sreddit page are equally disgusted with his actions and pleased with the news that Dalglish was caught “I'm not familiar with Nepali laws but I really hope this scumbag faces a serious sentence,” wrote one commenter.
“Wow he is a high profile guy. Good that Nepal Police caught him,” said another.
There isn’t any word right now when Dalglish when is expected to appear on court at this time.
