From CBC News Canada:
Ethan Edwards, a man in his mid-50s, last year confided his deepest secret to a close friend: that he was a pedophile. “He’s happy to keep my secret,” Edwards wrote in an online chat with CBC News, too fearful of vigilantes to give out his phone number. But he says his friend now feels infected by his secret. Edwards, a pseudonym, only realized he was attracted to young girls a few years ago. He says he’s never acted on it.
