Former Vancouver editor Gary Ross writes riveting story for UC Observer about wrongfully convicted man

A riveting story about a man wrongfully convicted,written by Gary Ross, the former editor-in-chief of Vancouver magazine,  has been published by the United Church Observer. The story is about a moving relationship between Ivan Henry, who spent 27 years in jail for sexual crimes he didn't commit and a labour lawyer and arbitrator called Joan McEwen who has striven for years to exonerate him and to get him compensation. (Although declared not guilty, this is not the same as being declared innocent.) 

One of the reasons Henry (who is no saint) was charged and convicted was that he was fingered by his own wife as a rapist because she was paid $1,000 for her information, money she used to support her drug addiction.
