There is a book in French authored by Rod Vienneau of Joliette which reveals the horrific suffering endured by thousands of orphans in Montreal, including his wife Clarina Duguay, who were forcibly placed in mental asylum as a child. The Vatican and the Quebec government found a profitable business in placing children in mental hospitals vs. orphanages since they would obtain more federal funding per child at mental hospitals, in addition to the astronomical profit made from allowing the children to be used as human experiments by pharmaceutical companies.
The Vatican and the government have tried their best to silence this scandal, hoping that the surviving victims just die off. After the survivors started getting much press coverage in the early 2000's, the government agreed to pay them an embarrassing $1,000 per victim for years of torture, which the survivors understandably denied. Later, the government offered $10,000 plus an additional $1,000 per year of abuse. However, they are forcing tax payers to pay this rather than holding the Vatican accountable, whom to date has remained silent on this issue.
The facts of this Vatican & State crime scheme is astonishing.
In 1959, Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessis announced he would build 10 new sanitoriums - which is generally thought of as a place to treat tuberculosis. Sure the world had problems with tuberculosis in the past, but certainly not in 1959. So what's the big idea? Human experiments. One would think that after Duplessis was gone, his successor Lesage would ditch these crimes, right? No. Not only did Lesage build the 10 sanitoriums, he built 34 across Quebec! A sanitorium is generally a place far away from the city. Nobody would want to go to such a place. A set up for medical experimentation on children.
Another gruesome fact worth noting:
1. In most places graveyards are next to churches. In Quebec they're often next to hospitals.
2. Many hospitals in Quebec had their own municipal status. In Montreal the St. Jean de Dieu in the city's east end (now called Louis Hippolite Lafontaine) was a separate municipality called Gamelin with its own police and fire force. Police, when dropping off a drunk, would not be allowed past the gate. Whatever they did inside those walls was their own businesses. There were credible reports of children - perhaps undergoing mysterious experiments - with swollen heads. Another of a 5 year old child chained to a radiator.
3. There are unexplained graveyards and hospital records mysteriously missing.
Paul St.Aubin, an orphan of the later period, has scars all over his skull from when he was detained as a child, in forced farm labour and incarceration (the same free labor children endured in the catholic run residential schools in Ireland, Australia and across Canada - which exposes the Vatican's modus operandi). He's clearly the victim of forced lobotomy but he has no memory of any of it.
Many of the orphans are now speaking out.
Rod Vienneau penned this book to create some sense of justice, for example, many of the children involved in this heartless scam still maintain the false records of insanity that were pinned on them to justify their incarceration inside insane asylums, in spite of promises, these were never erased. Nor were the orphans given any kind of just compensation, they were given $1,000 per year inside plus an extra $10,000 each, which is insane considering the settlements of victims of similar tragedies elsewhere (The officials processing the files were paid $1,000 per day for their work).
