Boy adopted by a British Columbia man

A boy was sexually abused by his adoptive father, a 43 year old Lower Mainland area man. The man had previously helped build an orphanage in Mexico and mentored vulnerable children through Big Brothers. The man had extensive child pornography in his home and the abuse was discovered as a result of the Project Spade international porn bust.

Project Spade

The articles indicate that 3 foster parents in Canada were arrested in the Project Spade investigation. I don't know if that includes this adoptive parent or if there are 3 more foster parents who were, at a minimum, watching child pornography.

Canadian privacy rules prevent much information from being published. It is unclear how this boy was adopted. Foster care? Intercountry adoption?
