Aboriginal Canadians were not only subjected to nutritional experiments by the federal government in the 1940s and 1950s but were also used as medical test subjects, says the chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

In an interview with CBC Radio’s All Points West on Tuesday, Justice Murray Sinclair told host Jo-Ann Roberts that commission staff has “seen the documents that relate to the experiments that were conducted in residential schools.”

Other documents related to experimentation in aboriginal communities outside of residential schools have…

St Francis’s Boys’ Home, Shefford – “The home was the personification of hell.”

Founded in 1868 and open until 1974, St Francis’s Boy’s Home, Shefford, Bedfordshire, is thought to have been the longest serving children’s home in England.

In May this year, former residents of the home, who were physically and sexually abused by staff in the 1950s and 60s, formed a support group and decided to take the Catholic church to court.  Evidence has since emerged that Jimmy Savile was a visitor to the home.

For many years there have been allegations of abuse at the former St Francis Boys Home in Shefford.

The home was run by the St Francis Society, as part of the Catholic Church.

Two former boys have won out of court settlements against the church, which…

Westminster Confidential

Jim Prior,now Lord Prior. blocked the opportunity for a full-scale public inquiry into the notorious Kincora child abuse scandal, Cabinet minutes released under the 30 year rule revealed today.

The minutes of the Cabinet meeting (see http://bit.ly/19zxFqT ) reveal on 10 November 1983 Jim Prior, then Northern Ireland Secretary, proposed not to have a full Tribunal of Inquiry – the same mechanism, used to investigate  the Bloody Sunday atrocities, the North Wales child abuse scandal and the Dunblane massacre.
The minutes reveal the Cabinet – who included the now all ennobled Leon Brittan, then home secretary, Michael Heseltine,defence secretary and Norman Fowler, social services secretary, bought the Royal Ulster Constabulary line that there was nothing in it.

theneedleblog

THE identity of whoever ­recommended paedophile politician Cyril Smith for a knighthood is being kept ­secret by Government ­officials

cyril, smith, margaret thatcher, jimmy, saville, paedophile, politician, lib, dem, Cyril Smith was let off the hook by prosecutors even though there was “sufficient evidence” to charge him

Since his death in 2010 it has emerged that the former Liberal Democrat MP was a child abuser who escaped justice.

But details of who in 1988 put 29 stone Smith forward to become a “Sir” are shrouded in secrecy.

A document released to the Daily Star Sunday under Freedom of Information laws reveals the grounds for the recommendation.

But the section saying “By whom recommended” is totally blacked out.

According to the Cabinet Office, headed by Sir Jeremy Heywood, releasing the details would breach Data Protection rules. But an MP who has helped expose Smith’s abuse says it should be made public because concerns about him were well known.

In 1970 –…

Warning signs of abusive personalities and the rights of abused children

Word From The Street

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” (Mathew 18:6 – 10)

Imagine yourself as a single woman with a child to raise on your own. With a young child to look after you’d have to be crazy to hook up with an abuser, right? But many would be surprised by just how many smart women get fooled by these types of men and place themselves and their children in great danger. Below are warning signs of an abusive personality.

Controlling:

Isolation:
