No one can take away your Human
Rights away What was the role
of the Canadian
rights? They allowed these sterilizations
to occur and they started it in the first place. What grade would the
government get for their
role in this event ? The grade I would give them while the event
was going on would be an F because,those people
will never be able to have their own children.
The grade I would give them now is an
C because they apologized to the victims and that's it. In the picture the lady in the
background is Leilani Muir
with two of her younger
relatives. Leilani was
one of the victims of the
sterilization. She attended
Provincial Training School for
two years and four months.
She had a low IQ so they diagnosed her as a "Mental Defective Moron". So she was then sterilized. Did the government
apologize and if so
when? Yes the government did apologize, and they apologized in 1999
