B4 CALGARY HERALD Fri., June 5, 1992 CANADA V '?? V lr Brother admits to incest JESSOP: Age 15 in '84 photo LONDON, Ont. (CP) - The step-brother of a nine-year-old girl found murdered and sexually assaulted testified Thursday that he had group sex with his sister from the time she was two years old. In a startling confession, Kenneth Jessop, now 22, admitted he and two friends a pair of brothers began having sex with Christine Jessop in the family's home in Richmond Hill, north of Toronto until she was about seven years old. While sobbing in the witness stand, Jessop said the activities were initiated by the two older boys, aged nine and 11. Jessop was called as a witness by lawyers for Guy Paul Morin, 31, who lived next door to the Jessop family after they moved to Queensville, north of Toronto. Morin has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 1984 sex slaying of Christine Jessop. The girl was found dead Dec. 31, 1984, about 50 kilometres from her home, two months after she disappeared. In May 1985, Kenneth Jessop then 14 led his parents to some of Christine's bones which had not earlier been collected by police at the murder scene. He had told his parents he was having nightmares because he was not satisfied that all of Christine's body parts had been found and buried. Jessop testified Thursday that he is haunted by memories of what he called "sexual abuse" by the two older boys against him and Christine. "I can't even make love to my wife without having a flashback." Court heard he was treated for depression and was just released from a psychiatric hospital after being convicted of setting fire to motorhomes in January. New quarterhonors Alberta's Badlands (Edmonton Journal) EDMONTON Coin collectors and nationalists gathered at the legislature Thursday to get their two cents' worth plus 23 cents more. About 450 quarters showing an Alberta scene were handed out to mark their release into circulation, the latest in a series of quarters commemorating Canada's 125th birthday. The scene, by Mel Heath of Edmonton, shows the hoodoos of Alberta's Badlands, sandstone formations carved by wind and water. The design was picked from 1,298 entries; the 61-year-old freelance artist also submitted views of Lake Louise and Castle Mountain but said the Badlands scene was his favorite. Heath received $5,000 for winning the competition. Mariusz Oleksak of Edmonton won second prize of $2,000 and Lois Connell of Calgary won third prize of $1,000. Viewing the proceedings was Diane Jensen, who said the coin will be a memento for her 19-month-old daughter, Marie. "My husband and I have been collecting them (the coins), mainly for her." She said there's a lot of interest in the coins. "I work in a store, and in February we started getting some of the Northwest Territories ones . . . most people think that it's really neat." The mint received 11,003 designs for the 12 quarters and dollar coin; a committee spent three days choosing the winners. The mint plans to produce up to 10 million of each commemorative coin this year. (Distributed by the Southam-Star Network.)

Cail for Detailsi Smoking women in No. 1 spot OTTAWA (CP) - It's a dubious achievement, but Canadian women smokers have become the first in the western world to outnumber their male counterparts. David Pollock, executive director of the London-based, international anti-smoking organization Action on Smoking and Health, said Thursday that "the rate of female smokers (in Europe) is much lower, but growing." Statistics Canada figures suggest there were 50,000 more women smoking than men in 1991. "This is clearly a sign of success of the tobacco industry's marketing to women," Pollock said. Canadian and international anti-smoking lobbies say tobacco companies have targeted women in their advertising to maintain sales levels as more men quit smoking and fewer started.
